Lost Province Brewing Co.
Boone, NC 28607
Lost Province Brewing Co. is located in downtown Boone in a historic building that once served as an automobile showroom and later as the offices of a local newspaper. Owners Lynne and Andy Mason have an interesting story. She is a long-time member of Boone Town Council, while Andy left a career as a forensic scientist to become the head brewer, aka Dr. Beer.
The brewery’s name is derived from the moniker given to the NC High Country region in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The area around Boone, West Jefferson and Banner Elk was known as the Lost Province because of its geographical isolation from the rest of the state of North Carolina.
Lost Province typically has about 10-12 beers on tap with seasonal rotations. The Lost Province American IPA is a staple, along with two New England IPAs. German style pilsners and American and Mexican style lagers are also quite popular, as are experimental batches using such ingredients as honey and raspberry.
In addition to beer, Lost Province offers a menu of savory wood-fired fare made in a large copper oven. Live music is a regular feature.
