The Lost Friend Story

We are a woman and veteran owned craft beer brewery located in northeastern Colorado Springs, colorado. We pride ourselves on being very dog friendly, though we also welcome other well-behaved, leashed pets. We even have carabiners on our tables to hold your leashes, leaving your hands free for enjoying a beer while playing a board game or reading a book. Our sunlit taproom and killer view of Pikes Peak invites you to relax and stay a while. We host local food trucks each day which change frequently. Follow us on social media to see weekly food truck schedules. 


Above all, we are driven by our passion for good beer, science, and a strong sense of community.  We believe everybody should be able to enjoy craft beer, and that our neighborhoods have the power to improve the quality and choices of beer throughout the country.

The Name

Our name comes from our founders' uncanny ability to find lost dogs and return them to their families. Over the years, these dogs were called our 'Lost Friends.' This is Lady Bug, our first Lost Friend who ended up becoming part of the family.

Our Goal

We want to be your neighborhood brewery, even if you don't actually live in our neighborhood. We work hard to make quality beer that appeals to people from all walks of life. We aim for you to be able to enjoy our beer and bring in a friend who doesn't drink beer; we'll have something to change their mind. Through it all we will stay grounded with a solid foundation and passion for the science of brewing, and having a true community conscience.
