Jake Black has 17 years of combined brewery and restaurant experience. Born and raised in Boise, Jake started his first business at the age of 14. He went and got a hospitality and restaurant management degree and put it to work at two of Boise’s most iconic establishments; Bittercreek Ale House and Payette Brewing Company. These experiences led Jake on the path to opening a locally committed brewery.
In the Fall of 2017, Jake opened the doors to Lost Grove Brewing with the help of his two business partners, Kylie Bolland (front of house) and James Hixon (brewer), and their community investment group. Lost Grove is a brewery focused on creating delicious beer, bringing the community together, and setting an example to other businesses that it is possible to maintain success while giving back and bringing value to their community.
