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.

This is one nice new place in VT. Here you have a small and simple bar area, a little slice of home in the midst of an industrial area. Intimate and laid-back. They had a nice selection of good-quality microbrews, dabbling in Belgian, German, and American styles.

I didn't like that they don't offer sampler sizes, nor do they have medium-sized pours as an option. I mean, it's nice if this is your local watering hole, and you can come in for a pint at any time, but as VT is a big state for beer tourism, a sampler flight would be perfect for a place like this. But oh well, no real harm I suppose...I ordered up a pint of gose and was pleasantly surprised. I wish I could've tried everything, but unfortunately, I'm not always looking to get wasted, and 7 or 8 pints might do it for me.

Service was okay. The girl behind the bar seemed a little overwhelmed with even a small crowd, and took an extremely long time getting our orders, but I stood there patiently and waited. Prices are solid all around. Food options looked interesting, but I've yet to sample anything. Maybe next time.

If you haven't been here yet, you definitely want to check Lost Nation out. They seem to be getting off to a good start, and I think they'll have a lot to offer in the future.

My wife and I stopped by Lost Nation on the way from The Alchemist to Hill Farmstead. Really glad we gave it a try.

As others have said, the place is in an industrial park, and we drove to a point where we could see the place but couldn't cross the road we were on because of construction. We figured out where to get beyond the construction ("Cross St.") and made it over.

We got there right as they opened at 12pm (on a Wednesday). There was only one other group there, but they seemed to be salesmen of some kind talking to the bartender (brewer, also) about insurance or whatnot. But they were also eating and drinking.

There were about 8 beers on tap. All lower ABV stuff. Nothing over 6%, which is a nice change of pace from all the double IPAs northern VT is known for. A gose seems to be the flagship (who else's flagship is a gose??), and there's a pilsner, rustic ale, saison, black ale, belgian pale ale, a marzen, and a version of of the gose made with currants. We tried most of the beers, and they're solid. The pilsner was fantastic - hard to find a well made pils out there. The black ale was a bit smokey and just fantastic. The marzen was great, too.

Food was stellar. Very small menu but it focuses on quality. I had a grilled cheese with soup - roasted tomato and garlic soup. Delicious grilled cheese, made with hearty bread with nuts and berries, blue cheese, bacon, etc. The soup rocked. The wife had pork with spaghetti squash in a cider glaze. I tried it and it was also fantastic.

The server guy (who said he's also one of the brewers) couldn't have been more friendly. He was talkative with us but it probably helped that it was almost empty in there. He did say that he usually tries to feature a guest tap in addition to their own beers. He's had Lawsons on recently, said he was getting something from 3F next, and he's also getting one of the only 6 kegs of De Dolle Oerbier coming to the states soon.

The interior is intimate. Lots of wood. Maybe 6 tables or so in addition to a medium-sized bar area. Seemed nice and simple but was also a bit dark due to the time of day and so I don't remember much of the interior as I was sitting at the bar, facing the taps.

Growlers sales are available - but not of all their beers, just 4 to choose from. Unfortunately I'd prefer a growler of the pils or black ale, but they weren't available for growlers. We got one of the gose which I want to try pairing with a specific dinner I have in mind.

Oh pints are only $4, imperial pints are $5. Great value.

I can't recommend visiting Lost Nation enough. It's a nice change of pace from the big IPAs in the area between the alchemist, Lawsons's, HF, etc. These are easier-drinking beers done extremely well. We'll be back!
