About Us

Lawson’s Finest Liquids was founded in 2008 in Warren, Vermont as a 1bbl home-based brewery. Fans quickly sought out our beer, prompting an expansion in 2011 to a 7bbl system and the launch of our flagship IPA, Sip of Sunshine in 2014.  Lawson’s Finest opened our destination Brewery, Taproom and Retail store in Waitsfield in 2018, finally giving a space to welcome visitors. Our beer can be found in nine states across the Northeast. To learn more about the epic origin story, check out our history page.
