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.

Our first time walking across the Lift Bridge. Great way to cross the river and get great views. Our timing was perfect as we were on the bridge and got a close up view of it lifting and lowering...

I'm a big fan of what they've done here. The bridge is very walkable and is exclusively for bikes and pedestrians now. Once you're on the Wisconsin side, the trail keeps going. We went in about a half a mile before we turned back but they're still seem to be plenty of room to go. I'm not sure entirely how far it goes before you need to use a car, but I would definitely consider coming back. It seems like the respective state governments have invested in building out some sort of trail because I saw a lot of hardcore looking bicycle groups.
A little windy at the time we walked across. It is neat to see and worth the time
