Lift Bridge Brewing Company, Stillwater’s first Craft Brewery since Prohibition, will be serving up a sweet surprise at the Minnesota State Fair. The brewery has announced that it will sell the first-ever mini donut flavored beer, exclusively at the Ball Park Café from August 22 – September 2.

Dan and David Theisen, co-owners of Ball Park Café, teamed up with the Lift Bridge Brewmaster Matt Hall to craft a special, state fair beer that would pay tribute to the ultimate tastes and smells of the ‘Great Minnesota Get Together.’ Mini donuts were one of classic state fair favorites that came to mind.

“The Ball Park Café is the leader when it comes to craft beer at the Minnesota State Fair, and we believe this project is an example of that,” says Dan Schwarz, CEO and Co-Owner of Lift Bridge Brewing Company. “We did several test batches to develop a mini donut beer recipe that would give taste buds the ultimate state fair experience. We are feeling great about the final recipe and hope it is a home run with fair goers.”

Lift Bridge Brewing Co. Mini-Donut Beer has a warm tan color, like the exterior of a mini donut. A malty base and natural flavors give this sweet sipper enough rich flavor without overwhelming the palate. Mini-Donut will be served in a glass rimmed with cinnamon and sugar.
