Lift Bridge Brewing Company is a Minnesota-based craft brewery located in Stillwater, Minnesota. It is Minnesota's 7th largest Craft brewery, well known for its flagship beers Farm Girl Saison® and Hop Dish® IPA. Lift Bridge currently distributes in Minnesota, Wisconsin and North Dakota. In 2017 the brewery produced 19,000 barrels.

Lift Bridge Brewing Co. was founded in 2008 by homebrewers: Brad Glynn (now Chief Operating Officer), Dan Schwarz (Chief Executive Officer), Trevor Cronk (Vice President) and Jim Pierson (Chief Financial Officer). Originally brewing only for friends and family, they eventually began brewing bigger batches and sold their first keg of beer in September of 2008. In 2010 they moved into their current brewery space, eventually opening a taproom in 2011 taking advantage of a law allowing craft beer brewers to sell pints directly from the brewery. It is currently the oldest operating Taproom in the State of Minnesota. January of 2018 Lift Bridge announced expansion into a new facility that will be open sometime in 2019, that will carry Lift Bridge into a future filled with more delicious beer.

In 2014, Lift Bridge became one of the first breweries in Minnesota to brew non-alcoholic craft root beer. Originally, the product was only available in the taproom until it was canned for retail distribution in 2017.

  • Great lights! Lots of people... Good food... There were fires to warm up! Leo's has great Hot Cgocolate!  more »
  • Historic bridge in downtown Stillwater that spans the St Croix River between Minnesota and Wisconsin. Renovated this past year and is now for pedestrians and bikes only. The city did a great job...  more »
  • This location is for the historic Bridge, not for the town of Stillwater. The bridge is currently closed for updates to be used as a pedestrian and bicycle Crossing. The bridge adds to the scenic beauty of the area.
  • One of my favorite places to visit, less than an hour away from twin cities, good boating options, great places to eat and super happening during the summer months. The bars and the downtown keep it happening in the winter months too.
