Lift Bridge Brewery Turns Ten

Ten years is a long time in craft beer years. Though Lift Bridge doesn’t pre-date this site, they’ve still been around the proverbial block.  Lift Bridge was one of three breweries to open in 2008. Previous to that, Minnesota saw one new brewery in 2007 and one in 2006. Things have changed a bit, haven’t they? When they launched, they brewed their beer at Jeff Williamson’s Flat Earth location. In 2019, they’ll be brewing at a brand new location in Stillwater.

This weekend you can raise a Farm Girl (or your favorite LB beer) to the fine folks at Lift Bridge in celebration of their 10 Year Anniversary. The bash runs from noon-10pm on August 18th and will include food, music, axe throwing, giant yard games, hammerschlagen and a beer dunk tank, among other things.
