Our name comes from a surfing term, rhino chaser: someone out to find the best waves, the biggest waves—an adventurer.
Lost Rhino's founders, Matt Hagerman and Favio Garcia, set out on an adventure of their own: a coast-to-coast journey in search of discovering the greatest traditions and the wildest frontiers of brewing. Our beers are inspired by the experience of choosing the scenic route, the tough challenge, and the road less traveled. In the brew house, we take pride in bringing together a global perspective with locally harvested ingredients.
Everything we craft is personal, from our innovative pursuit to cultivate wild Virginia yeast strains from nearby orchards, meadows, and even fossils, to our steadfast dedication to support local Virginia farms.
