In November, we met with Michael Agnew at Stub and Herb’s for lunch and a couple pints and to talk about Lift Bridge Brewery. Michael took the information and wrote a brewery profile on his web-site A Perfect Pint. Check out the profile.

Biscotti™ – Unique Belgian Style Ale
7% ABV – We drew inspiration from Steve’s Grandmother’s holiday biscotti recipe to create this one of a kind brew. By utilizing an array of malts, oats, wheat, pure local honey, light European hops and delicately spicing with Grains of Paradise, Madagascar vanilla beans, whole star anise, all brought together with traditional Belgian yeast, the result is a cloudy, deep copper colored, complex experience. This delight to the senses should be served in a 12 ounce footed glass and allowed to warm to 50 degrees to fully gather the malt and spice spectrum.
The Lift Bridge Brewery was featured as one of the Twin Cites’ Best Cheap Eats and Drinks of 2008 by City Pages.

4. Lift Bridge Harvestor beer
The Stillwater-based team at Lift Bridge Brewery is doing some exceedingly cool things with their business, concentrating on making beers that hit the sweet spot in appealing to beer snobs and newbies alike. Harvestor, made from locally harvested hops, is a pleasant shock: It’s hard to believe something so hoppy can also be so smooth and mellow.
This is the second article on us this year. It is quite an honor.
From the article:
There’s something brewing in Stillwater. Continuing the trend of homebrewing enthusiasts taking their hobbies commercial—see Surly, Flat Earth, et al—we now have Lift Bridge to add to our tabs. Their Farm Girl Saison is summery and drinkable, reminiscent of our favorite non-Minnesota beer (and the pride of Wisconsin), Spotted Cow. The other signature brew, Lift Bridge Pale Ale, is a great local alternative for anyone with a taste for Sierra Nevada. Available at several local pubs; we get ours at the Blue Door in St. Paul and Stub and Herb’s in Minneapolis.
We are pleased and honored to be featured in the Metro 5.
