A Brew of Their Own
March was Women’s History Month, but at Lawson’s Finest Liquids we celebrate and support women all year long. We are ecstatic to introduce this year’s Pink Boots mid-month release, Sisterhood Sour. As part of our Good Brews for a Cause initiative, this beer is brewed in collaboration with Pink Boots Society, an organization that advocates for and educates women in the brewing industry. It’s brewed with hibiscus, tangerine peel and apricot puree for an approachable sour with fruity, herbal notes. For every bottle sold at our drive-thru Retail Store, Lawson’s Finest will donate $2 to the Pink Boots Society so you can pay it forward with every sip.
We’re also highlighting the women of Lawson’s Finest during our April Livestream with co-owner, Karen Lawson; Brewery Lab Manager, Julie Smith and VT Brand & Key Account Manager, Katie Butler. Tune in for a closer look at the empowered women who help lead Lawson’s Finest Liquids.
Social Impact Program (SIP)
To further support women this month, we’ve announced Vermont Works for Women as our April Sunshine Fund recipient. This organization empowers women and girls to recognize their full potential and excel in work that leads to economic independence.
Sunshine Fund donations will directly support Rosie’s Girls, a program that gives middle school girls hands-on experience in career fields that are non-traditional for women including STEM and trades exploration. To make an even bigger impact, Lawson’s Finest will proudly match all Sunshine Fund donations to Vermont Works for Women.
Thank you to all of our guests who made a donation at the drive-through in February. With Lawson’s Finest matching donations, we were able to give over $15,000 to the Kelly Brush Foundation from the Sunshine Fund. This organization empowers people with spinal cord injuries to lead engaged lives and also runs the Stop the Bleed campaign. We are so excited to see these funds further propel their mission and provide education on prevention and treatment of ski racing laceration injuries.

They say blondes have more fun, so we’re giving even more fans a blonde moment by distributing Knockout Blonde Ale to our entire marketplace. This blonde ale packs a zippy punch of hop aroma and features a flavorful blend of North American malts. It’s fully loaded with Cascade and Centennial hops and inspired by the knockout blonde herself, Karen Lawson.
