See, I’ve never seen this stretch of 100, as we always run straight at that light back there out to 15A or some shit towards G Bend. Damn, it got dark quick. The snow sure didn’t help, and the road we turned onto didn’t actually connect to where we needed to be, so we had to criss across cross to right ourselves. But we found ourselves Lost just the same...

Far corner of the building in a set of buildings that are an industrial park behind a residential neighborhood. It’s a small tasting room proper on the end of a brewery. ‘L’ shaped tree slab bar with a plank wood vertical base on the inside wall, seating 10 on hightop wood chairs. No barback to speak of but the wall there holds an 18 tap row inlayed within phat post framings. ‘Genesis project’ growler filler to the left, stereoings to the right, and a large square board further down listing house & guest taps.

Wide wood plank floorings, and drop ceiling with a pair of spinnys & exposed ducts. Red walls all around with mounted cone lamps and light lanternings. Decor, well there’s a painting of a farmhouse that this place is not, a Pilsner Urquell print, a small Orval tin on one wall, and a large long one on the opposite wall over the door to the brewroom, an Arabier print to the rear and I can see an Oerbier print in the big window above the bar, I guess the office. Surely you don’t think you can keep it safe from me. Shirt, um, tree in the rear corner of the bar, and slight kitchenings beyond.

A pair of shorty 4 seat tables just inside the door, and 3 lengths of tree slab bar counter running adjacent to the bar at different heights; lower on the ends on windows offering views of Vermont nighttime mischief and higher in the middle.

12 taps in all. 6 house (a sampler of all dealt in 3oz taster glasses for $5, went there); Gose, 4.5%, excellent, a bit, and I mean just a bit of sweetness there; Vermont Pilsner, 4.8%, really nice, sharp, good bitterness, I do dig it; Petit Ardennes, 4.2%, light, easy drinking, spicy and a bit fruity, total WIN; Saison Lamoille, 5.9%, funky & oddball, I don’t know what or why; Rustic Ale, 5.4%, herby, earthy, pleasant enough; Pitch Black, 5.4%, smoky phenolic, not over the top or full on, but enough, so that, no. Gose, Vermont Pilsner, & Petit Ardennes were the best of ‘em. And 6 guest taps; beer local (Lawson’s Big HAPI India Black Ale), and import (McChouffe), and non beer local heroes; cider (Citizen Cider brose), a Kombucha drink thing (Organic Strawberry Joy Kombucha), and sodas (Rookies Root Beer & Ginger Beer).

Food menu board on the rear wall; cheese & charcuterie, soup of the day (sweet & sour squash butternut), a handful of sandwiches (grilled chee, tempeh & veggie panini, chipotle bacon patty melt, cubano), and a single entrée, that being a NY strip steak. It we hadn’t gone all Worthy, I’d be a grilled cheesin’ as we speak.

The sampler was pretty inexpensive as is everything else ($4 pints, $5 imperial pints, & $10 growlers). All of their house beers are under 6%, actually the 3 of them I liked the most under 5%. Nice sessionable stuff here. Light foodings, I definitely good have ‘etten here. Good crowd, and the music; well, it’s the blues, baby, the blues. Yep, we’ll do this again. (3,277 characters)

Excellent beer experience, offering just a little bit of a twist to it.

The turn off to the place is a little misleading, figured it out, but it's easy to miss as you have to go down a service road by the industrial park area.

However, once arriving it's a great space. There is an excellent benched area for the biergarten which is what I really like to find in places like this. The other is a bar/restaurant area for you to also partake in the food and drinks as well, which is where I sat and ate.

I loved the diversity of the styles they had, it was one of the few places in Vermont that had this and they were also done real well. Service is real fantastic, as the staff handled my food and order of cans to go real nicely too.

Really like the experience here, I would easily return (797 characters)

This place is small and fun, it was originally the Rock Art Brewery before they moved into a larger facility down the road. After selling it to the folks who started Lost Nation, it's clear the space has been utilized for much more.

While Rock Art brewed some great beer here, the folks at Lost Nation are doing much more, including food options and a bigger seating area for both drinks and food.

It's tiny room but you can fit if not at peak hours. The beer options are great, and everything Lost Nation offered on my latest visit was well worth it. Definitely stop by if you're in the area. (595 characters)

Lost Nation was about a 30 minute drive from Hill Farmstead. It's kinda tucked away, but so it nearly everything else in VT.

There's a big, red, barn-looking taproom that's abutted by a "biergarden" which is actually much more of a full-service restaurant than just a place where you sit to drink. Cans and growlers are available for purchase inside, and all the food needs to be consumed outside. (I have no idea what they do when it's cold outside).

As for the vibe--you're outside in Vermont. It's breathtaking. The food is hearty and hippie-ish: nearly everything is local and they give you lots of greens as sides. It was very tasty.

There were around 8 house beers on tap, including the delicious gose, along with a handful of good guest taps. The beer was tasty.

There are so many places in Vermont that qualify for "must visit" status that I don't know if Lost Nation quite makes the cut. If you're going to Hill Farmstead, however, and it's nice out, and you're hungry, I don't see why you wouldn't want to stop here. (1,040 characters)

Vibe was laid back. Quality of the brews is excellent. Sat down and had a pork belly sandwich was fantastic. Service was very good. Brew selection for onsite was much better than the to go selection. This is a must visit if you're making the rounds in VT. Come hungry! (268 characters)

I love this place. The waitstaff are wonderful, and Allen and Jamie always seem to be around greeting guests and generally being more available than most brewer/owners tend to be. The biergarten is a welcome addition on summer days, and the food is always excellent. Of course, the beer is fantastic as well. Personal favorites are the Gose, Lost Galaxy, and Saison Lamoille. (379 characters)
