Beer is For Everyone!
As part of Lawson’s Finest Liquids commitment to focus on community and take good care, we are excited to partner with Change in the Air and New England Brewing Co. to raise money for CT Brewers Guild African American Brewing Scholarship. This scholarship was created to help add diversity to the brewing industry and directly supports African American students enrolled in the brewing science certification program at Sacred Heart University. To help us raise money, visit our retail store in Waitsfield, VT or online to purchase a “Beer is for Everyone” Tote Bag. All proceeds are donated directly to the cause. We thank you in advance for your contribution.
These brews are distributed to our nine states (VT, CT, MA, ME, NH, NJ, NY, PA, RI).
