Top notch food and brews. Lost Nation is a an amazing place to sit back relax and enjoy a German inspired beer and some amazing high quality local driven pub food. The rustic inspired atmosphere is comforting and welcoming. This little gem is tucked away for the moment in an industrial park thats currently plagued by construction, but that is part of the magic. Due to the construction the area is nice and quite and offers an isolated, peaceful feel right in the heart of Morrisville.
LN's staff is amazing. Everyone involved in the operation of LN is kind, welcoming and very knowledgable. From the waitstaff, and cooks to the Brewers everyone has a smile on their face and a love for the establishment they are involved in.
The beer is clean, great tasting and consistent. There is a great range of beers for most pallets. The Gose (A sour German beer brewed with sea salt) is an the best example of the style I've had. It's a bit tart, very refreshing and session-able. The Pitch, is a great light body dark beer that offers a slight roasty/smoky hints. Their VT Pilsner is a great light body hop forward Pils that you can drink for days. The Saison and Rustic are also seem to be local fav's. When I was there There was a limited edition IPA called the Lost Galaxy. This was an amazing session IPA with a very light body. I will come back again and again for that one.
LN is one of the best Brew Pub experiences in Vermont, or maybe in the North East. This one you should not miss.

As previously noted, Lost Nation is situated in the former home of Rock Art, which relocated down the road. The tasting room is a large rustic area featuring a long bar that ends at the kitchen door. Several offerings in convenient sizes: full pint, a small pour and an even smaller 3-ounce taster, all reasonably priced. The beers represent different styles, yet seem reminiscence of Belgian ales - no doubt the yeast. A friend and I had just come from a sumptious lunch at the beloved Prohibition Pig in Waterbury, so we did not eat - the menu was somewhat upscale given the rustic surroundings (Goose pate and beer?) Still, it is a great place to support local products and get some wonderful brews.

Went to Lost Nation for the first time yesterday with baconsausage (thanks for driving) and had a good time. Tucked away in Morrisville VT, this brew pub is at the old Rock Art brewery location. Rustic building on the outside towards the back of a tiny industrial complex (more like a col-de-sac with a few industrial buildings). Beware of the large icicles formed on the highly elevated roof overhang as you walk towards the building during the winter. Inside, you find a small but warm and inviting space. The typical "opium den red" walls are nicely accented with lots of reclaimed wood, copper tap back splash, and wrought iron style fixtures. They have a 24 tap system that usually includes roughly 6 of there own offerings and some guest taps. Not all taps seemed to be in use when I visited. They also have a pegas counter pressure filling growler unit hooked up to 4 of the lines. Service was friendly and attentive. Really chill down to earth people for sure. Food menu was small but the quality was excellent. Beers come in your option of a 16oz or 20oz pour. Even had some rarities on draft that you don't see at many other places in the North East. I think I'll make a point of stopping here on my way back to Waterbury or Montpelier from Hill Farmstead from now on.

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.

Had a very good smoked ham and pork sandwich with Vt Pilsner. A very nice place to sample beer and grab a bite to eat. Great friendly service. Look forward to visiting again and trying some more of their beer. Rustic Vt atmosphere surrounds which is why I like living in Vt and enjoying all the great beer available here.
