Lost Generation started as a dream whispered between husband and wife late at night, often several beers in. Disillusioned with the local brewing scene here in D.C. during the aughts, we packed up and moved to California to work with the towering giants of the brewing industry, but always with that lingering promise whispered years before, that we would come home and build the brewery we had wished for back then.


Beer drives us. It unites us. We painstakingly choose the best hop lots to make IPA that inspires, take time and care with our lagers to make sure they will amaze, and hand pick our aging program barrels to ensure that what comes out will always impress. We believe that if you’re going to do it, do it right and do it well. And that’s because we make beer for people we love: family, friends, neighbors, and even those who are just goddamned thirsty. 


We also realize that no brewery could survive without the community that supports it, which is why we partner with local charities and artists. After all, the brewing industry is all about reciprocity, collaboration and community.


In here we believe that each pour is an invitation to be one of us. As Gertrude Stein once said, “You are all a Lost Generation.” In here we hold that to be true. We are all one and the same, so let’s raise a glass and have a beer together.
