4.08/5  rDev -6%

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.

Friendly folks, solid beer, excellent food. Very relaxed and casual setting, service was hospitable but slow. Glad to see they are doing flights now. Also glad to see them slow smoking that BBQ. Really tasty.

Fair prices, not cheap but not exorbitant. Left quite full. 7-8 beers on tap. Rustic, unpretentious. Alleged kimchi was more like vinegar slaw but that's okay. Moderately full on a Thursday afternoon, one server outside in their fenced off "beer garden," one outside. Seemed like they were a little slammed. I appreciate the fact they were chatting up each customer very generously, but that delayed everyone else in their quest for beer and food. Can sympathize because I tend to do the same thing on the customer service end; love talking to the people!

Good beer and fantastic ribs. Is there any better combo? Get a flight, half-rack, and enjoy the experience.

A must-visit if you go up to Northern VT -- amidst all of the other great breweries and restaurants to visit in the greater Stowe area Lost Nation Brewing is a wonderful addition to the landscape.

Delicious drinkable beers (love the Gose and the Pilsner especially) and a wonderful selection of food. I had Gose mussels and a pork belly sandwich that was awesome! The bar space is beautifully outfitted in warm wood and the handcrafted tap system is very eye-catching! There's even an outdoor beer garden dining area that would be great in the summer time.

Jamie and Allen are very friendly and personable. You can really sense the passion they have for what they do and they LOVE talking beer! I always look forward to visiting when I go to Vermont.

Lost Nation is one of my favorite breweries in VT. The Gose, in my opinion, is one of the best beers around. All of their beers are tasty and different than what is going on at other breweries around the state. The inside of the location is pretty cozy, and the large outdoor seating in the summer by the smoker gives it a smokehouse feel. Their food menu is interesting and delicious. The smoked tofu blew my mind! Definitely worth multiple treks to get my growlers filled!

This was stop #7 for my wife and I on a 9-day East Coast pub crawl and a family visit. The brewery is located in a fringe industrial-like area of this small community, and our GPS had some difficulty getting us the final 100 yards to this brewery. We stopped in the early afternoon on a Sunday to try the beers and to have lunch.

The brewery occupies an industrial-style building, and there is a large lean-to next to the parking lot where picnic tables are available for eating and drinking under a roof. The small taproom probably can’t hold as many as the patio, so it could get plenty crowded during the cold-weather months.

We ordered a sampler flight of all 7 of the brewery’s beers that were available. The beers are served in small snifter glasses – a nice touch, even though that glass style is not traditional for some of the beers. All of them were brewed very well to their respective style, and our scoring system gave all of them at least a B grade. The Vermont Pilsner was most notable because it’s rare to find a good one in this style. However, we thoroughly enjoyed them all.

The food was exceptional as well. It appears that it is prepared outdoors at the far end of the covered porch, so we have to wonder if the food is available year-round. This brewery is highly recommended.
