Smalley's BBQ could be closing as soon as this Saturday. The article says the building was bought and they are being forced out. Seems like there is more to the story.

Lift Bridge will likely stay in the city’s industrial area; they plan to announce the location of their new five-acre site within a few weeks, he said.

“The site needs to be five acres to accommodate visitors and truck traffic, so (staying) in the industrial area would make the most sense,” he said.

As nice as a downtown Stillwater location might be for taproom reasons, this is mostly a production facility that is best suited for an industrial area. If they proposed a downtown location, everybody would complain about all of the blank walls and big loading docks. And yes, the parking.

On the other hand, they keep finding places for MASSIVE parking ramps, e.g., into the hill on 2nd St. S & Olive. That would have been a great place for this facility. There's a fair bit of space in Stillwater, actually, for a large facility near downtown. Tons of surface lots and poorly utilized space around if you look, but they'd have to build a multi-level facility, which might not be realistic.

They could put a taproom downtown like Fulton did in Mpls maybe?

Yes, that would seem to be the logical option for them, if they felt that having a downtown presence was important. Which, apparently they don't. [shrugs]

Lift Bridge Brewing lands a Stillwater site for $10 million expansion
*UNLOCKED*

They've selected the corner of Orleans St & Washington Ave (not far from their current location) for the new facility.
