Came here on a Sunday after a major event and the place was quite busy. Small taproom that is quite bright and inviting with communal seating and a popcorn machine. It does not look like food trucks frequent there often. They do seem to hold a lot of events. They are really known for their few bottle releases done each year. I have had all their flagships, a few seasonals, and a few special release and I have never tasted anything unpleasant. All their beers are very good for their style. This brewery is an excellent place for Stillwater and Neighboring Hudson.

Well ive only been here 3 times and its always for the annual BA Silhouette release. Will say ts a drive from Minneapolis, its in a small industrial area, with plenty of parking on the street. The brew has always been good and service great. Brewpub is kinda rustic with lots of wood, they do open up the back with more seating.If this were closer would be here more often.

The first time I went here they were having a baseball event where you win beer by hitting home runs. Amazing.

Went to Lift Bridge a few days after hitting up Surly's Beer Hall. There's a huge difference! While I think the Lift Bridge beers are solid all-around beers, the tap room was a bit boring along with the overall selection. Had a pint of the Citra Kellerbier which was tasty, but I felt that I should be sitting in a rocking chair watching a PGA tournament the whole time. Very friendly staff and overall solid beer, just nothing very exciting.

Rather pedestrian taproom that lacks character. Noticed a bit of a trend of good breweries having their taprooms in industrial parks, while poor breweries have theirs in prime locations. Nice that Lift Bridge concentrates on what matters, the beer. All the beer is good with no flaws and the same as what you will buy on store shelves. I just wish there was more taproom exclusives besides a "session" ale. The cask that was scheduled did not go off as planned and did not get an opportunity to try.

Pretty generic taproom. Run of the mill offerings.

Not a lot of tap handles, but their seasonals are outstanding, staff is great, and their events are tons of fun.
