Lawson’s Finest Liquids Celebrates Six Years
Tucked away in the Green Mountains of Warren, Vermont, Lawson’s Finest Liquids will be celebrating six years of beer this April. Showcasing the best of what Vermont has to offer, owner Sean Lawson skillfully utilizes local resources such as maple sap to embody Vermont’s charm within his beers.
In its six years, Lawson’s Finest Liquids has earned two medals in the World Beer Cup, noted as the most prestigious brewing competition in the world.
On April 19, Lawson’s Finest Liquids will be hosting two anniversary events at the Valley Players Theater in Waitsfield, Vt. The events will raise funds for worthy causes like the Desmoid Tumor Research Foundation.
The free Beer Lovers Market (2-6pm) features bottle sales, draft beer, Lawson’s merchandise and a selection of foods and goods from several local businesses.
The Beer Lovers Ball (7-11pm) is a limited capacity event featuring live music and a cash bar with eight varieties of Lawson’s Finest on tap. Admission is $35 and includes one draft pour in a souvenir Lawson’s tulip glass and a buffet dinner from the Mad Taco.
Details on ticket sales and a complete list of local offerings can be found on Lawson’s blog.
