Lift Bridge Beer Co. Can Now Sell Beer Growlers on Sundays

Craft beer drinkers will be able to purchase growlers of beer from Lift Bridge Beer Co. on Sundays.

The Stillwater City Council on Tuesday amended the city’s liquor law to enact the Minnesota legislature’s recently-passed Bloody Mary bills, and allow breweries to sell growlers of beer on Sundays.

Lift Bridge Brewing Co. is the first (and so far the only) local brewery to request — and receive — an amended permit to their liquor license that allows the sale of beer growlers on Sundays.

Each brewery must apply for an amendment to their liquor license to sell beer growlers on Sundays, City Clerk Diane Ward said. Maple Island Brewing has not yet applied for Sunday sales.

The council also approved an amendment that allows Stillwater restaurant-goers to order a Bloody Mary – or any other alcoholic beverage – starting at 8 a.m. on Sundays, two hours earlier than current laws allow.
