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.

This is a fun place! Great tasting beers. It is in an semi- industrial location. Nice open tap room and lots of fun stuff going on. On my way to something else, I will make a point to pack a sandwich and stop by for a beer or two.
The beers are awesome and the service is great.

This is a nice little place to stop if your going threw Stillwater, the prices are very reasonable, good merch available, no food thoe besides the free popcorn machine in the corner. Simple atmosphere, nothing to fancy but not a dive by any means, definitely a good place to get some solid beer on tap," farm girl" if your even a slight fan of the Belgian wheat beers, this being one of my favorite Americanized styles of this type of beer and "hopdish" if your looking for a very solid everyday normal i.p.a.
