Big Lost is a hidden gem in the area! Great atmosphere with unique drinks. Mead on tap changes with seasonal meads and the craft beer is delicious. The building is bursting with character and the bar tenders are great. Must visit!!

First time tasting Mead, this is a very unique place. They also brew beer. A definite must stop. They serve the mead in cow horns, I preferred the Black miner.

These folks are great. Good times, relaxing atmosphere, good mead! Only got 4 stars because they don't have any food to serve. If I could make it 4.5 I would because they do let you bring in your own food.

It is a bar that is kid friendly. There is a unique/fun atmosphere with lots of games and they make their own mead in house. No food is served.
