Lost Signal Brewing

Springfield, Missouri, is in the midst of a craft-beer renaissance, and Lost Signal Brewing is the latest to put its own spin on suds. The brewery’s constantly changing taps feature seasonal beers and playful riffs on classic styles. Missouri-grown smoked pecans are the star of the robust Smoked Pecan Porter, while the Atomic Wedgie is an American-meets-English amber ale made with raspberry and blackberry purée and peanut butter. Beers are meant to pair with Lost Signal’s low-and-slow, Texas-style barbecue. Try the spicy loaded barbecue nachos featuring your choice of pulled pork, chicken or brisket with jalapeños and diced tomatoes on a bed of housemade tortilla chips and topped with beer-laced queso fresco. Or just opt for the brisket or pulled pork straight up, paired with hearty sides such as mac ‘n’ cheese made with a rich ale cheese sauce or bacon-jalapeño cornbread.
