A. Events Manager

Q. How did you come up with the name of your brewery?

A. There are two couples that own the place and between them they have 7 kids, only one of which is a girl.

They came up with over 80 names but kept coming back to The Lone Girl because it came from somewhere—it meant something to them. While the name was inspired by one of their children, it is not meant to represent her.

The Lone Girl is meant to represent any strong, formidable, individual woman, which is why you'll never see her face in our logos.
