Lincoln Winebar, is an informal place to visit with friends, drink a little wine or beer, eat some great wood fired pizza., and see some of the area’s best live music.
Opened in 2007 the winebar was expanded in early 2012 to include a beautiful wood fired pizza oven from Naples, Italy. The expansion tripled the seating area and allowed for the addition of a small stage for live music. Come check it out.
Jesse Sauerbrei is a native Iowan and has worked with wine and beer in the Cedar Rapids area forever.
He’ll suggest just the right thing to drink with that amazing pizza.
Kitchen Manager/Dough Freak:
Aaron Hall, an Iowa native, makes the great dough that is the heart of our pizzas. He stretches the pizzas, usualy makes the fire, and thinks a lot about beer.
Wine & Beer
We feature a small but lovingly created list of wines and beers from around the world. We offer at least a dozen wines by the glass and both the bottle list and the glass pour list change weekly if not daily.
We’ll be happy to offer splashes of anything on the glass list and walk you through our available wines if you need a little guidance. We also know how to stay out of the way if you’re trying to show off a little bit. (Don’t worry, we’ll act properly impressed in front of your date or colleagues.)
The winebar also features a list of around 20 small production craft beers from around the world. Places like Belgium, Norway, Japan, the U.K. and the U.S. are always well represented. We change this menu a lot as well so you’ll never get bored.
Along with the five pizzas that we always offer we also feature three or four special pizzas each day from our beautiful wood oven, sometimes a salad, (especially when the farmers are bringing us great veg,) something sweet, intelligenstia black cat analog espresso, and some really special tinned seafood from spain that we just love.
The wine bar features live music every week at 7 or 730 depending on the day, and open mic night every other wednesday. You’ll find blues, folk, bluegrass, and jazz at the bar on a regular basis. See the home page for this month’s schedule.
