Lost Ridge Brewing’s petite tasting room and expansive outdoor beer garden is open to guests of the inn as well as the public and offers natural farmhouse style craft beers brewed, aged and served onsite. Here in the land of winegrowers and wine drinkers, we’ve dared to be different. Lost Ridge Brewing’s small-batch ales are reflective of the wildness of this Georgian village setting. We use pure well water, premier hops and grains from around the world, local specialties such as Georgian alpine honey, spices and fruits grown in our own orchard, and age our bottled beers in our own on-site beer cave. While any industrial brewery can churn out unimaginative bland lagers, the Lost Ridge offers made-in-Georgia classic craft ale styles such as Belgian-inspired Tripels, Farmhouse Saisons and Pacific Northwest-style IPA.
With backgrounds in travel, tourism development, painting, agriculture, homebrewing, winemaking, gastronomy, and restaurant management, the team behind Lost Ridge has spent the last three decades passionately promoting, educating and attracting curious travelers, stewards of food and wine and the media to the treasures of this tiny gem of a nation called Georgia. With a heartfelt desire to further contribute to this very special country, The Lost Ridge Inn, Brewery and Fire Kitchen at Qedeli was created as a sanctuary for the senses. Hence, we invite you to come and explore the amazingly diverse world of beer with us as we experiment with local and international ingredients to craft innovative Georgian brews.
