A Cedar Rapids Brewery Has Released Cheesecake-Flavored Beer
A couple of days ago, Lion Bridge Brewery in Cedar Rapids announced the release of a few new beers, just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday. Those beers are getting quite a bit of attention from dessert-lovers!
According to Lion Bridge's Facebook page, the Raspberry Cheeseshake and Blueberry Cheeseshake Fruited Sours are officially available for purchase. Both beers are described as a "kettle-soured golden ale" with "a healthy dose of cheesecakey goodness and a graham cracker finish."
This isn't the first time Lion Bridge has released Cheeseshake beer! Back in the fall of 2020, the brewery released Blueberry, Raspberry, Pink Guava, and Blackberry Cheesecake Sours, as well as a Key Lime Pie Sour. The Blueberry and Raspberry ones must have been popular enough to bring back! Both of the flavors are available on tap at Lion Bridge, but you can also buy them by the can. Four-packs of them are available for $19.99. You can purchase them online HERE.
The other flavor that Lion Bridge Brewing Company released this week is Oakonut Delight, a "barrel-aged imperial stout with coconut and caramel added." If that's more your thing, they're available on tap at Lion Bridge, or in a four-pack for $18.99 HERE.
Other local breweries have some interesting beers in time for the holidays, too! Iowa Brewing Company in Cedar Rapids is gearing up to release Cousin Eddie's Breakfast Ale next week, Backpocket Brewing in Coralville is unveiling Mallow Vibes: Pineapple Marshmallow Kettle Sour next Wednesday, and Millstream Brewing Co. in Amana is now serving their Pumpkin With Benefits beer.
