Our Taproom

We’re so glad you’re back

The sunshine is out, the Sip of Sunshine is cold and our Beer Garden is in full swing. It’s starting to feel a lot like summer.

Our Beer Garden and indoor Taproom are now open for reservations and always have something new and exciting on tap. Try our Grapefruit Blossom IPA, a collaboration with Orchard Island Brewery, or our Things We Don’t Say IPA, a collaboration across 197 breweries and 8 countries committed to smashing the stigma surrounding mental health. For every glass of  Things We Don’t Say IPA sold, we’re donating to Hope for the Day and Washington County Mental Health Services.

You can also stop by our drive-thru Retail Store for beer and food to-go, as well as apparel and other Father’s Day gifts.


A few weeks back, we went down to Boston to spend a beautiful afternoon on the golf course with the David Ortiz Children’s Fund, a nonprofit organization that funds lifesaving heart procedures for underprivileged children. As a sponsor of the David Ortiz Boston Heart Classic, Lawson’s Finest served fresh, cold brews to golfers from around New England and even got to talk beer with Big Papi himself. This tournament alone raised over $450,000 for the cause!

Our Tuesday Tunes music series kicks off this month. We’re getting some amazing acts right here in Waitsfield, VT including Vermont Symphony Orchestra’s Jukebox Quartet and The High Breaks. Keep an eye on our events page for updates.

Special Brews

Available at our Waitsfield, VT Beer Garden, Taproom and drive-thru Retail Store this month


Space In Between with Pineapple

The undefined ale is a hint hazy with a juicy feel and notes of pineapple. It’s the perfect summer brew to whisk you away somewhere tropical without ever leaving your backyard.


Above the Clouds

This crisp, clear golden ale features notes of fresh grain underscored by a subtle citrus hop aroma. The approachable and light bodied brew is as perfect as the view from above the tree line.

App Gap Saison

Our Belgian-style farmhouse ale is still available for a limited time. This brew boasts a slightly spicy character with fruity yeast-driven esters and an effervescent, dry finish. The name of this crisp ale comes from the iconic mountain gateway to our favorite Valley.

Kingdom Trails IPA

It’s finally Kingdom Trails IPA season! This fruit-forward, soft, refreshing IPA has a floral nose and was brewed in collaboration with the Kingdom Trails Association. As part of our Good Brews for a Cause initiative, proceeds help the organization sustain a vital trail network in Northeast Vermont — as if we needed another reason to drink great beer!



Distributed to our nine-state sales territory (VT, CT, MA, ME, NH, NJ, NY, PA, RI)



The days of asking, “Hopcelot, Hopcelot where have you gone?” are over. This month, Hopcelot is coming back with expanded distribution! The brew was inspired by a dreamy combination of music, hops and beer. Every can holds 8 hop varieties from around the world to create a unique flavor and delight your senses!

Scrag Mountain Pils Salt & Lime

A summer spin on our classic Scrag Mountain Pils is available in our nine-state distribution – but not for much longer! Pick up a can of this crisp pilsner with a refreshing twist of salt and lime to sip your way through summer.


Scrag Mountain Pils

Our Scrag Mountain Pils is a traditional Czech-style pilsner. The crisp, fresh brew was named after the aquifer beneath Scrag Mountain — where us Waitsfield, Vermonters get our freshwater.

Super Session #5

Our Super Session Series uses the same malt base and specialty malts but features a different single-hop variety. Super Session #5 uses Cashmere hops for a light, refreshing taste. Pick up a 12 pack or 4 pack and train your beer palate to taste the hoppy difference.

Sip of Sunshine

As always, our ever-popular Sip of Sunshine is available and pairs perfectly with soaking up the sunshine this June. The IPA is packed with juicy, tropical fruit character, bright floral aromas and delectable layers of hop flavor for a vacation in a can.

Little Sip IPA

Summer is the perfect season for Little Sip IPA — the little cousin to Sip of Sunshine IPA. The lower ABV IPA is delightfully crushable and truly pairs with any occasion.
