Whether you’re a Vermont local or just visiting, there are a lot of microbreweries & pubs to choose from and this place is definitely worthy of being a high priority on that list. Takes a little doing to find it as the roads and the maps don’t quite agree and the place where they are looks like a public works dept. & a lumber yard from the street, but they are back there, in the rear of the red building.
The staff, both waitresses and bartender were super friendly, helpful and all surprisingly very knowledgeable about the beer, food and even the guest brews.
They had six of their own on tap this day with three other guest brews as well. We took the sampler to start and some food, despite not being very hungry at the time. I liked that they had several of the less common, everybody’s got em, beer styles (Gose, Saison, Pilsner, Blonde Belgian) but felt they were lacking of a Stout, Porter or Barley Wine, something on the bolder, malty end of the spectrum. Being a Stout fan, I was surprised when I didn’t find their Pitch Black brew to be worth the anticipation, when I finally got to that end of the sampler board, but I was very happy with others as I worked through, particularly the Petit Ardennes & Saison Lamoille and went back for more of that after properly emptying all the sampler glasses. Inquired about the guest brews and was promptly given a generous taste of each and in a decent glass, not a plastic thimble...
The food, largely composed of locally sourced ingredients, was really outstanding and I quickly went from "I’m not so hungry, I’ll just pick" to ravenous and wanting more. In fact the memory is making me hungry as I write this.
Overall, one of my favorite places so far. Very respectable brew, great menu and food in an enjoyable atmosphere with nice people. Looking forward to returning regularly and will be looking for their beer on the taps of other establishments.

Nice little brewery tucked behind a old mill looking warehouse in Vermont. Great outdoor patio with wafts of delicious meat being grilled. We choose to cozy up next to the bar inside and had a nice tasty cheese plate and went through the gamut of brews being offered. The gose was the standout with all the other offerings having some appeal but nothing too memorable. Staff was friendly and atmosphere was relaxed and unpretentious. Nice place to stop on the route from Greensboro to Waterbury !

Lost Nation, man. They have a clear vision for their beers that is executed consistently in their high quality and old world subtlety. The space is rustic and comfortable, with excellent smokehouse style food that is honest and locally sourced. The bartender was savvy to the beer world as any but especially proud of his own product, and this attitude is merited even given Vermont’s wealth of modern craft beer excellence. None of their products will precipitate massive crowds, but their careful composure and always excellent balance is difficult to overstate. The two guest lines on this visit were de proef sour barrel no. 1 and a brand new de dolle offering; perfectly complimentary to their house beers besides being double-take worthy choices. I urge everyone to count this superb brewery within the list of top necessities to visit amongst the many in this state.

Great setup, especially in the summer with the newish very large patio punctuated with sparse picnic tables and opened on the gril. Extremely laid back, comfortable and welcoming. This young brewery produces some of the best beers in the state. Their pilsner in particular is superb. The Gose is also a safe bet and their Belgian styles are also above average. You should find all that among the 8-beer long draught list here with most available to take a growler home and somehow, they add a Belgian tap which seems to always feature a world-class blockbuster like Struise or De Dolle. So good that it’s almost tempting. The food consists of a limited selection of mostly BBQ stuff. For the location, prices seemed a little on the steep side, but nothing outrageous and the quality seemed slightly variable from one place to another. The ribs were a little rough for one and the salmon was a bit unevenly grilled. It remains pretty good though.

My husband and I visited for the first time on a weekend trip to VT. We were really impressed by the beer. On tap were Gose, Vermont Pilsner, Rustic Ale, Saison Lamoille, Petit Ardennes and Pitch Black. We had the Gose, Rustic Ale, Saison Lamoille and Petit Ardennes. All were great but we took home the Saison and Rustic Ale. It was nice to have some great tasting beers that were under 5.5% in alcohol. Pints were very inexpensive. The place seats about 2 dozen people and has a comfortable atmosphere. We didn’t try the food but it looked delicious. We actually went twice in the same day! We’ll be back.
