Autumn brings you our two latest collaborations with Otter Creek Brewing, including Double Dose IPA in bottles and draft. You can find it around New England thanks to Otter Creek’s wide distribution. In the upcoming month, we will also release our new collaboration called Double or Nothing, a sweet Barley Wine aged on maple wood and brewed with maple syrup. Yum!

The newest Lawson’s Finest beer is now tap at some of your favorite establishments that serve our beer! Sip of Sunshine IPA!
