I just dropped by to check up on a release date and ended up hanging out for a half hour or so. Great beers on tap (all Lost Abbey) and a really cool staff. I got a chance to sample a few rare bottles that i would have otherwise not been able to get my hands on. Unfortunately, I didnít have a chance to try any food but I will be going back soon...

Came in for a drink and a chat on a Friday. Friendly local crowd and service. They were bottling the Cuvee de Tomme when we were there and let us buy a bottle even though the release day was the day after.

I was there for a beer dinner put on in conjunction with Premiere Stainless. This also served as a launch party for Belle Proximus. The owner, Vince, cooked and I wish I could give it a food rating because the food was amazing.
From the barrels that occupy every line of sight to the stack of pallets holding beer there is no question but that this is a brewery. The barstools also hammer home that theme as they are simply kegs with bags of malt atop them. Nice.
The beer selection is everything int he Port/Lost Abbey arsenal and that is of course formidable. The staff was friendly and pleasant.

A great brewery to visit. The bar is always stocked with both there everyday beers and some specialty stuff. The people behind the bar always seem helpful and willing to answer any questions you might have...if they canít answer them, Tomme is usually close by and can answer them himself. Worth the stop when in town.

A fairly typical warehouse brewery, but thereís a 30-foot bar at one end of the building, with a gigantic cold box behind it and an enormous barrel room off to the side. As you let your eyes and feet wander around and see signs on the barrels that read Duck Duck Gooze and Cuvee de Tomme, a comforting mixture of excitement and humility washes over you. The bar typically serves at least 6-8 of the Lost Abbey/Port Brewing beers, including some special releases and the occasional non-bottled beer like Veritas 002 or Funky Barrel. Special release parties are typically well-run and jovial, and well-catered by co-owner Vince Marsaglia and his handy grills and folding tables. To think they pull off all of this with mostly just a dedicated volunteer staff is quite remarkable. If you catch Tomme while youíre there, heís usually happy to share a pint or two and stop for a chat. Original artwork from their lovely labels makes a nice accent.

Went to the 2nd Anniversary party. Great ambiance with oak barrels stacked 15í high everywhere you look, all labeled with the contents. Oh, how I wanted to punch a hole in one and go to town. Probably would have been asked to leave..... They had several great beers on tap, and while Iím sure they donít normally serve food, they did for the party and it was an awesome mexican buffet. Loved the Holy Water as well. Heard Tomme soaked his feet in it to bless it.

The Lost Abbey is in a warehouse, but the decorations are brewing vats and kegs of beer aging. What could be better? Not yuppie or over commercialized....perfect. Service from the girl behind the bar was great. Free samples if you buy beer, which we did!

Lots of fun, in a warehouse but still a cool place. There wasnít as much beer available to purchase or try as other breweries I have been to but still a cool place. Would go back.

Been to the brewery a few time and have had nothing but good times. The crew is funny as hell, the service is great, the beers are awesome. The barrel room is my favorite part of the brewery. Spotted Angels Share, Cuvee de Tomme, and others aging. Canít wait to go there again!

Well now, I have to admit it isnít the Ritz Carlton but is it a brewery afterall for christs sake. I got the help package the Shark Bite, lookat at tons on barrels full of experimental brews and future brews, was able to purchase Loat Abbey Brews, met Tomme Arthur, has Tomme get bottles of Cable Car AND Veritas 003 out and pour them for a select few, listen to Tomme discuss the Art of Creating.
The waitress was all over us with super efficiency and a great attitude.
Thanks again for a great experience.
