Publish date:

Lift Bridge Brewing is diversifying its talents by launching a new soda company.

The Stillwater brewery on Tuesday launched Lift Bridge Soda Co., releasing a new soda flavor to go alongside its already established Lift Bridge Root Beer.

The new flavor? Mini Donut Cream Soda, which is a non-alcoholic play on the mini donut beer the brewery has sold at the State Fair since 2013.

The craft soda will be sold in 16 oz. cans at Twin Cities grocery stores including Cub Foods and Lunds & Byerlys, as well as Holiday gas stations starting this summer.

It'll also be available on tap at its Stillwater taproom.

"We started selling our root beer back in 2014 and have seen sales continue to grow consistently across the Midwest," said Brad Glynn, co-founder and COO at Lift Bridge, in a press release.

"Between the success of our first soda and that of our classic Lift Bridge Mini Donut Beer, we determined a combination of the two would create the perfect beverage to officially kick off the new Lift Bridge Soda Co."

Glynn says the new brand will allow the company to "expand our manufacturing capabilities while reaching consumers who want affordable 'luxury beverages' with a bit more attention to flavor and style."

The soda uses water and pure sugar, along with a blend of vanilla and cinammon flavoring that aims to replicate the taste and smell of mini donuts.

The company plans to launch more craft sodas in the near future.
