*Ziva Voda – (Czech-style Pilsner, 4.8%) – Named for the “living water” of Czech fairy tales that heals infirmities and counteracts spells.

Releases Feb. 23rd!

Lion Bridge Barrel-Aged January releases for today (1/19/22)!

Another Wednesday and a more wonderful beer for Barrel-Aged January coming from Lion Bridge today! Following the release of one of the greatest beers brewed in the state, Home Baked, and 2022 GAZPROM! and the decadent Monkey Tail GAZPROM! Lion Bridge will be releasing “Remembered Time”, this 1st ever Barrel-Aged January Collaboration brewed with Clock House Brewing and is an English Barleywine. Not only that, they will also be releasing “Fragaria” a farmhouse ale brewed with strawberries! Here’s more on these two brews courtesy of Lion Bridge’s newsletter:

Remembered Time! Release Wed 1/19 (Barrel-Aged Strong Ale, 12%) – Our first Barrel-Aged January Collaboration ever! We worked with our friends at Clock House to brew a rich Barley Wine and then blended it with some strong stout from our cellar to make something entirely new and amazing!

FRAGARIA! Release Thurs 1/20 (Farmhouse Ale with Strawberries, 5%) – We took a selection of spelt beer aged in neutral french oak with Brettanomyces and put the blend on diced strawberries. This beer has a rocky, meringue of foam and beautfiul pink hue, while the nuanced flavor and aroma of strawberries emerges more as it warms.

Drink This! Lion Bridge Silvia

In the day and age where hazy IPAs, fruited sours, and pastry stouts are the craze and dominate the release landscape of craft beer, Lion Bridge brewery in Cedar Rapids release a style of beer that my taste buds have been craving….a farmhouse ale! YES! REJOICE! As much as I love every style of beer I was ready for this one to hit my lips! Brett, barnyard funk, and wonderful hop aroma, exactly what I needed!

*STYLE – Farmhouse Ale
*ABV – 5%
*AVAILABILITY – On tap and in bottles

We hand-selected a blend of Brettanomyces and wild beer from our wood program and then dry-hopped it with Vic Secret hops and naturally carbonated kegs and bottles.

The nose is superb. Vic secret hops pair perfectly with the brett to give it that wet hay/barnyard smell that makes farmhouse ales so spectacular. First sip was exactly what I was hoping for, hops up front with the funk on the back of the tongue, wonderful dry finish and slightly tart – just right and just what I was looking for in this beer!

If you’re a funk head, love brett, and are looking to go back in time a bit in the craft world, this beer is a must try! It’s on tap now or you can stock up your cellar as it’s available in bottles too! Get out there and DRINK THIS beer!

Lion Bridge bringing back “Spice Must Flow” and “Zombie Awakening” just in time for Fall!

Lion Bridge Brewing is bringing back two fall favorites of mine as Spice Must Flow and Zombie Awakening will be available in cans and on draft starting today (9/15)! Here’s more on each of these fall favorites:

SPICE MUST FLOW – 7% ABV
A melange of Maple and Saigon Cinnamon meld with a robust black ale to form this luxurious treat.
He (or she, or they) who controls the Spice, controls the universe!

ZOMBIE AWAKENING – 7% ABV
Black as the inside of a buried coffin, with enough Dash dark roast coffee to put a pep in the step of even the most lumbering undead walker

Lion Bridge releasing Oktobott 3000 and Beer at Work tomorrow! (9/1)

Lion Bridge Brewing is ringing in the month of September with the release of two beers. Oktobott 3000 and Beer at Work will be ready for you when the taproom opens Sept. 1st @ 3:00 p.m. Here’s more on these two brews below:

Oktobot 3000 (Barrel-Aged Imperial Märzen, 8.5%abv) – A fusion brew with German and Czech roots in the recipe as well as the name (“robot” is a word with Czech origins). Munich and Bohemian Pilsner Malt are the motherboard to this amped up version of the style, while 7 months in Willett Rye Whiskey barrels greases the cogs and makes sure it all computes.

Beer at Work (Australian-style IPA, 7.0%abv) – Heavily dry-hopped with Australian Vic Secret and a touch of New Zealand Motueka, this beer exhibits strong tropical fruit flavors known to come from the land down under where women glow and men plunder.
