Lost Barrel Brewing is the newest hot spot in Middleburg, VA where we discovered their state of the art equipment to produce high-quality beers and hard seltzers surrounded by amazing views and plenty of outdoor space to enjoy your favorite brew.
Patrick Steffens does more than just head up the beer production at Lost Barrel Brewing, he’s also the general manager and a part of the ownership team. Excited to return to brewing after taking some time off for family, Patrick has jumped right back in with proven recipes and a whole lot of prior brewing knowledge. We talk with him about his background, how Lost Barrel came to be, and a bit about the beers they are making. Be sure to join us again next week for the conclusion of our interview.
We chat about all that and get to know our guests’ history and journey to Lost Barrel. And, in Happy Fun Time we play a cut-throat game of There’s Weird in My Beer. All while Steph sips on some choice Lost Barrel brews because a snowstorm decided to get between Dan, Wayne, and the beer.
Lost Barrel has made it a point to be in harmony with it’s rural setting. It was built out of reclaimed wood, and with its clerestory windows and silo-like tower, it resembles a rustic barn. Just as important to its owners is that the brewery be part of the community.
Inspired by the idea of lost treasure, Lost Barrel Brewing is a gem in Middleburg worth discovering. In addition to craft beer, hard seltzer, and a chef-curated menu, the brewery offers stunning views of the surrounding horse farm, private event spaces, and expert hospitality from the friendly team.
