Our brewery is founded on two core principles: take care to produce quality beer; satisfy your curiosity in pursuing the adventure. It is important to acknowledge that these principles derive from those applicable to life in general. We believe in taking care to ensure quality of life for both humans and animals as well as rising to the challenge, the adventure. And without nature and all its magnificent wonders, there would be no adventure.
“We have a responsibility toward the other life-forms of our planet whose continued existence is threatened by the thoughtless behavior of our own...” —Jane Goodall
We not only support our namesake, but we try to contribute to organizations who put forth the most effort in conserving our planet, life, and supporting the betterment of society through education. It’s important to us as individuals that we give back to the great outdoors as well as the community, which supports us.
A Toast to Rhinos Everywhere!
Lost Rhino's Megafauna India Pale Lager is our tribute to the great big behemoths on this planet. A portion of its proceeds are donated to the African Wildlife Foundation, an organization that works to reduce human-wildlife conflict.
Andatu is a Sumatran Rhino, the first born in captivity at the International Rhino Foundation sanctuary in Indonesia. Sumatran rhinos are the most endangered species of rhino, having dropped 50% in population over the last 20 years—only about 100 exist today. Due to their dismal population, these Asian natives reside only in protected sanctuaries.
You can help us continue to provide Andatu a safe environment by donating through IRF or purchasing Andatu’s very own book, published by a class of very caring 5th graders.
We teamed up with Nova Labs Robotics to fund surveillance drones that would fly over fields in Africa which rhino crashes are known to inhabit. We hosted a bike ride from Reston to the brewery on June 29th, 2014. Participants made donations and we contributed a portion of merchandise proceeds to the project. Stay tuned for more updates on this project.
