The Lost River Brewing Company is an artisan craft brewery and pub owned and operated by Scott and Sandi Stambaugh, who are proud to call the West Virginia Potomac Highlands home. Scott Stambaugh is an award-winning brewer with years of experience creating fine artisan craft ales.
We are excited to open in this historic building, which is over a century old. Built in 1885, the first floor originally hosted a Frye Dry Goods store and blacksmith shop. Legend has it the second floor saw the first meetings of the local Masons. The Steinway piano prominently displayed in the pub was originally brought into the building in 1899. It has never left the building, and is the same piano that was used during the early 20th century to accompany silent films. During our extensive renovations of the building, we elected to preserve the original walls of the first floor, to honor the history of this building and the Frye Brothers themselves, the original builders.
We are grateful for the opportunity to establish our business in historic Wardensville and proud to become a part of the local community.
We hope that our artisan craft ales and delicious old-fashioned foods will add a little something special to the unique flavor of the beautiful Potomac Highlands.
