Lift was one of a few places open on Christmas Eve and I'm so happy we stopped in. They had a delicious DIPA 1300 and a tasty stout. No food but the offer popcorn to snack on. This was an unexpected gem during our break.

It was busier here than our stop at Maple Island. Service was pretty good. We didn't do a tour because of our time restraint and not wanting to over indulge. Beer was pretty good. I didn't pay much attention to the inside area because we sat outside on a picnic table.Would definately stop again when we're in the area.

The beers were all very good. The tour was not one of the best that I have been on but it is free and you sample 3 beers during the tour. I found it a bit crazy that they would not let people sample the mini donut beer. I am not a fan of sweet beers so I thought I... More

Chanced going to this brewery thinking it would be less crowded than places in town. Casual atmosphere. Picnic tables to sit at indoors. Not much seating outside. Friendly staff. Although they had several behind the bar and the place was moderately crowded had to wait quite awhile for flight of beer to be served. Enjoyed my flight of 4 beers... More

As a beer enthusiast I came here looking for an array of tasty beers. What I found was that they seem to be heavy on IPAs, farmhouse ales, and such; they didn't have any porters, stouts, a brown ale, or even anything as dark as an amber ale on tap. I asked the attendant about that and she said they... More

Away from busy downtown Stillwater, but worth the stop. Relax inside playing games or outside playing beanbag.

Stopped in while staying in Stillwater for the weekend. We bought a flight of 6 beers to try. Beers were good, atmosphere was pleasant and they had bean bags to play out side if you wanted. Ample seating. It did seem they could use more staff during busy times. Several times I saw a line of more than 9 people... More

We stopped by here on a recent trip to Stillwater. We started off with a very informative tour. Some in the group that it was too much information and got a bit boring, I enjoyed it but I can see where many might feel that way. After the tour, we enjoyed a tasty beer at the bar, I had a... More

Small venue, picnic bench-style seating, usually 10 different craft brews to try. Free 45 minutes tours are available on Saturdays and Sundays, and you need to pre-register for the tour online. There is no food available at Lift Bridge as Minnesota state laws prohibit most establishments of this nature to sell food. Lift Bridge does allow you to order in... More

Comfortable bar with good beers but really no atmosphere whatsoever. It was a shame, I was expecting something more from this place!
