Inspired by the dry, crisp lagers of Japan and the thoughtful arrangement of decorative flowers, Cigar City Brewing is proud to introduce Ikebana Rice Lager.

Much like ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arranging, Ikebana Rice Lager is concerned with subtlety, nuance and balance.  Flaked rice is added to a base of Pils malt, after which Saaz hops are added for a snappy bitterness and spicy quality.  Extensive lagering with a German lager yeast results in a dry, crisp and delicate lager that’s the perfect accompaniment to sushi, salads and sunshine.



  • ABV: 4.3%
  • OG: 9
  • IBU: 15
  • SRM: 5

Tasting Notes

Clean and subtle on the nose, this lager offers light bready aromas and floral Noble hops on the nose. Cracker-like malt flavors, herbaceous hop quality and a crisp bitterness all present nimbly on the palate, creating an effervescent that's synonymous with Japanese lagers.
