Lost in the Wilds Brewing: Your Post-Hiking Reward

Lost in the wild brewery

We’re stoked to share a recent adventure that combined our love for nature, hiking, and craft beer. It all went down at this incredible place we’ve been itching to tell you about: Lost in the Wilds Brewing.

We’d spotted this brewery on our way to the cabin a few times, and finally, after a day of conquering the trails at Buzzard Swamp, we decided to quench our thirst there.

So, we pulled up covered in trail dust, hearts full from a day spent soaking up the great outdoors, pulling up to Lost in the Wilds Brewery in Shippenville Pennsylvania. We were ready for some tasty brews and good vibes, and let me tell you, this place didn’t disappoint!

Our Cozy Evening at Lost in the Wilds Brewing

Pulling up to Lost in the Wilds Brewing, we were immediately struck by the inviting atmosphere. The place was well-lit and spotless—just the kind of welcoming vibe you want after a long day of adventuring.

And with Pawdrick, our trusty three-legged canine companion, in tow, we were even more impressed when one of the friendly bartenders helped us turn on a heating lamp outside. 

It was the perfect cozy setup to kick back and enjoy some beers in the cool Pennsylvania evening. If you’re looking for a nearby hike before hitting the brewery, check out our guide on hiking Buzzard Swamp!

Unwinding with Paws and Pints

The moment you step foot in Lost in the Wilds Brewing, you’re greeted by a tantalizing aroma that’s nothing short of olfactory bliss for any beer lover. You can tell they’re brewing something special here.

First up, we tried the Bear Fox, a 6.2% English-style brown ale. This brew had a smooth, malty backbone with low hop bitterness, ending on a sweet note with hints of brown sugar and raisin. It was like a satisfying, hearty meal in a glass.

Next, we dived into the Gingerbread Stout, a 6.5% brew that was like Christmas in a pint. It was brewed with additions of gingerbread and vanilla, lending it a silky smooth sweetness with just the right hint of holiday spice.

But the real star of the show, at least for me, was the Oatmeal Stout. Also clocking in at 6.5%, this full-bodied stout had light, sweet aromas of malt and roasted coffee. Every sip was a creamy delight with a semi-dry finish that left me wanting more. I seriously couldn’t get enough of it!

Navigating the Snack and Food Truck Scene

In terms of food, Lost in the Wilds Brewing keeps things simple. They stick to what they do best: brewing exceptional beer. So, if you plan to visit, grab a bite before you head in.

But don’t worry if you forget—they allow you to order food elsewhere and bring it inside. Sometimes, they even have a food truck parked outside.

Nearby Adventure-Friendly Pit Stops
