Lion Brewery–LIEBOTSCHANER Cream Ale!

image
I reported it back in 2009 and since that time you have asked (and asked…and asked…and asked….) and Lion Brewery appears to have finally answered.   I’m excited to show off the NEW packaging for the new Lion Brewery Liebotschaner Cream Ale.  This 12oz bottle label carries the same shape as the updated Stegmaier line of brews, a “product of American brewing” tagline and the 1994-95 and 1995-96 GABF Gold medals (American Lager / Cream Ale category).  Lion was also nice enough to include the 5% ABV, 12.5 O.G and even 14 IBU descriptors as well.  Welcome back Liebotschaner!!

    Yassuh, You brightened my monday morning, if not only theoretically. I'll toast you for breaking the news (and keeping on the story) if and when the time comes!! Any word on if it's the same as the old lieb?

  4. Thanks Lee....my understanding when we discussed it a few years ago it was to be very close to the original recipe if not exactly. I'll keep you updated as I find more details.

    Knew you would, great!

    You also might find me camped outside the studio when you feature it on an upcoming friday.

  7. Reading these old posts, it's uncanny how omniscient I am.
