at first we thought we were in the wrong place, as the frontage of the property is industrial & devoted to another business entirely. lost nation is located at the rear of the property & has a definite different feel than its close-by neighbors. parking is a bit of a confusing PITA. indoor space is very comfortable, narrow shotgun w. a tall ceiling; great use of color and texture to make it seem cozy & bigger than actual size. there are a half dozen or so tables, chair rail seating on the west wall & bar seating for a dozen or so.

having tried their gose on tap nearby earlier, I was excited to try more of their offerings. I quickly learned they don't do flights, but the bartender did offer up to supply a sample of whatever I had interest. after trying their petit ardennes, i settled back with a pint of their gose w. currants. i would have loved to have sampled the others, but it just wasn't a comfortable set-up to be "that person" asking for samples while she was attending to other patrons as it seemed like the girl had her hands full with the 8-10 people there.

i was definitely impressed w. their gose w. currants & enjoyed a couple of pints. didn't try the food - although about half of the people there were, and it looked creative and local. wished we would have been a bit later, as the male bartender coming in seemed a bit more casual, relaxed, knowledgeable than the girl that served us.

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.

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.

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.

I visited lost nation while on vacation last week. We had a hard time finding it but the state is rerouting Rt 100 and soon Lost Nation will be located on the new section of Rt 100. This was the former location of Rock Art Brewery. They really did a nice job on the redecorating. It has a nice vibe and the bartender/brewer/owner was great to chat with regarding the history of their beers. I had the gose and it was my first one. I really enjoyed the sour/saltiness of this beer. I would highly recommend a detour here if you are beercationing in the Waterbury/Stowe Vt area.

Funky location and, if you are a first timer, kinda interesting to get to but perserverance pays off. Glad I did and got this stamp for my beer trail. Food is wonderful and interesting menu. Just Vermont friendly and busy in a good way with lot's of folks who I could tell really enjoyed getting some good beers with friends. I will go back next time I am in the area this spring. look forward to it and so should you. Go!

This place is hidden in the back of another business. It is tucked away and i almost didn't see it. The atmosphere is very nice. The beer/eater is very small, but has a cool vibe. I wish I had time to try there food. The menu was a little too fancy for my taste. But I enjoyed the beer. The bar tender was great.

Great burger! Beer tasting is a good way to start and the paddles and write up helps beginners and also those who cant track 8 beers on a board. Outdoor seating ia great when the weather is nice especially while enjoyimg their Gose or the wind.

Trip there was 10/29/2014 after our trip to Hill Farmstead. It was a little difficult to get to, but the new road is opening this weekend and it should help a lot. We went there for tastings and food. The outdoor area was closed for the season, so we went and sat at the bar.
We ordered a flight and a sandwich. The flight included 5 of their current beers. We got the 6th one too. The pork shoulder was very good. Our bartender was very nice and informative. No tour was available. I would go back, but would want to hit the other local brewpubs in the area 1st.
