Building lasting partnerships and community through collaboration!

We have teamed up with so many great brewers over the years donating yeast, time, and energy in support of meaningful causes: raising money for local charities, isolating unique yeast strains for a co-pitch batch, and co-promotional brews at national events. Contact us to inquire about partnering up for a brew day.

Wild Hawaiian Collab

Brewery: Lanikai Brewing Company– Kailua, HI
Style: Waialua Wild Hawaiian Ale fermented with A20 Citrus & a unique wild Brett strain

Steve Haumschild of Lanikai Brewing found a previously undiscovered brett strain from the skins of the organic Keitt mangos on a friend's farm in the town of Waialua on the north shore of Oahu, Hawaii. We helped isolate, ID, and prop the sample for a co-pitching into a pils malt base with Mandarina Bavaria + citrus hops. ⁠ ⁠ The result was nothing short of tasting the tropics with a nice lingering brett funkiness.

Strain(s): L09 Que Bueno Brew Date: 3/1/23 Release Date: 7/25/23 Packaged: Draft

Yakima Valley Hops & LINC Malt of Washington also donated raw ingredients to create what Ryan Schmiege, Cascade Lake’s brewmaster, calls ‘a lovely display of LINC Francin Pilsner malt and European hop varieties. The body offers clean bready flavors balanced with Tettnang and Hallertau Mittelfruh hops. The Mistral hops used to dry hop give wonderful lemon and floral aromas.’

$1 from every pint benefited Bend/Redmond Habitat for Humanity.

Thanks again to Ryan at Old Standby Brewing for organizing another great charity collab!

SheBrew is a remarkable event that kicks off Women’s History Month in March at a festival in Portland, Oregon. The event includes a nationwide homebrewers’ competition, and a festival with dozens of commercial beers made by womxn in the local OR and WA beer industry. 

The SheBrew Festival is not only a celebration of female brewers & cider makers, both amateur and professional, it is an event for all genders and ages honoring equality and supports all womxn and the LGBTQ community with proceeds to go to the Human Rights Campaign and the Oregon Brew Crew.

We look forward to collaborating with a local brewery every year to create a great beer for the festival.

This year we connected with Trap Door Brewing in Vancouver, WA to help them create a unique wit beer with toasted and ground whole green cardamom adding a spicy citrus note, and conditioned the beer on hibiscus flowers to bring out a beautiful pink color and bright fresh flavor. 

A big thanks also goes to Mo.Masters for creating the awesomely fun graphics!⁠

A saison brewed with heather flowers, blended with a barrel aged beer after primary fermentation, then placed in a barrel with one of our Brett strains for a secondary fermentation. This beer will then age for a couple months.

Big shout out to Ryan from Old Standby Brewing for organizing this great collab!

Wit Bier

Strain(s): B44 Whiteout Brew Date: 10/17/23 Release Date: 11/11/23 Packaged: Draft & Cans

Tiger Spirit is inspired by an excerpt from Amy Tan’s novel, The Joy Luck Club, and is a collaboration between Lost Generation Brewing Company and Bluejacket Brewery, which is part of the Neighborhood Resturant Group.

10% of all proceeds from this wit beir, brewed with 50Hertz sichuan peppercorn, coriander, chrysanthemum, and orange peel will be donated to Chefs Stopping AAPI Hate, an organization bringing together the culinary world to support AAPI (Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders) and social justice causes.

The intentional decision to use Tiger Lilly flowers for the can art is best explained by Lost Generation Brewing’s Anne Choe: “Tiger lillies, indigenous of Asia, were brought to North America and now thrive here. As a daughter of Korean migrants, I can relate and we feel our AAPI community has done the same.”

“We, as Lost Generation, are proud to contribute to a charity where we can help our community thrive even more.”

We’re happy to be able to donate yeast in support of their collaborative efforts and share their story.
