LOST & FOUND / Brighton, UK

LOST & FOUND have an overriding philosophy that guides their culture and sits at the heart of everything they do.

Simply put it is... To make the best contribution they possibly can to their industry, through pursuit of excellence in everything they do. To make beers that challenge and excite, hands-in-the-air-beer designed to delight. To keep experimenting and searching and never stand still. To always use the freshest, finest and most ethical ingredients we can obtain, in line with what mother nature demands. To share the love of this craft with as many people as they can. And of course, to have as much fun as possible along the way. This is why they brew after all!

They go about this manifesto in many ways, but it all stems from the earliest of days, when Lost+Found was a mere 5 gallon brew-lab finding its way in the world. Located in a townhouse garage in the heart of Brighton, we would brew and brew and then brew some more. Splitting and cascading batches as they went through the process, in order to find new and perfect combinations of malt, hops and yeast, with the aim of making fantastic beer we could stand behind and proudly share with our family of friends.

Nothing has changed in that respect. The same applies today as it did in those fledgling days, late at night, fiddling with temperature controls on a hijacked hotpoint fridge. They still strive to push the boundaries of their craft. They still are on that intrepid journey of unlimited possibilities. They still ask the questions - what if they try this and this or even this! (no maybe not that)
They have the same approach to exploration now as they did then. The same commitment to creativity and precision. They hold the same values and still do what they know works best. They stay true to their beginnings and these early ideals. Which is why they continue to pilot brew and acid test every drop they create to let only the best of the best make it through.
