Our home of Hellertown, Pennyslvania has a long and rich history, dating to the 18th century. The town was settled in 1742 by Dutch immigrants,  the Heller and Wagner families. The first record of any business in the town is that of a tavern license issued to Christopher Wagner in 1746. Wagner's tavern  was the main hub of social interaction in the area, and they likely brewed their beer on site, as so many early American taverns did. Eventually the tavern closed and over the years it's actual location has been lost to history. We named our business to honor that first tavern, the town it helped create, and the town it is still helping to shape. This is why we say: Honor the Past, Craft the Future


Lost Tavern Brewing opened the doors to our beautiful brewery and tap room in Hellertown on the First of July, 2016.   Our second taproom in Bethlehem opened in May of 2019, within the oldest continually operating book shop in America, The Moravian Book Shop.  We look to honor, not only our past and heritage, but our home town, where our company was originally founded, in everything we do.  Our aim is to provide fresh beer of the highest quality in a variety of styles, from classics to the creatively crafted.

"With breweries popping up all over, LTB has distanced itself from the rest with excellent beer, family like staff, and comfortable feel. The care they show for their customers and the community at large is evident in so many ways, from tastes and explanations to curious customers to their massive efforts to promote safety during the pandemic to their service to the community through things like Hops for Hope. I plan on getting "Lost together" with the wonderful LTB family for years to come."
