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!!

Finally, I actually like the label too. I will seek this one out. Any info on when and whether or not it will be a stand alone or part of a variety pack?

Is the porter getting a new label as well.

My impression was that it would be stand-alone but I don't have much to back that up. I doubt they can pair it up with anything though since it doesn't seem to fit in with the Steg stuff easily (other than the shape of the label)

Looks like Lion no longer makes this. Their website lists but two extremely uninspiring beers. A "light" and "classic" lager the former sounding like a watered down version of the latter.

Actually they DO make it. I just saw it at a festival a few weeks ago.
