LITTLE SIP IPA IS HERE!

The newest addition to our Sunshine family of beers, Little Sip IPA, has officially landed in Vermont! Little Sip IPA quenches your thirst as you reach the summit of your favorite hike. It’s the beer you grab for the victorious celebration after that birdie during a golf game, and it keeps you company while you mow the lawn. It pairs best with outdoor adventures and fun, and it never disappoints! Our little cousin to Sip of Sunshine IPA has a juicy, fruit-forward character layered with tropical hop flavors and bright floral aromas. Notes of grapefruit and pineapple complement this delectably balanced beer. Coming in at 6.2% ABV, it is delightfully crushable and is now available at our outdoor beer garden, drive-thru retail store and at select accounts throughout Vermont!

SIPS OF SUNSHINE

While we are missing being close to our colleagues, community and loved ones lately, we are grateful for all of the ways we are able to stay virtually connected in this time of physical distancing.

One great example of this is the Mad River Valley Community Fund and MRV Emergency Management Volunteers bringing our community together through art. Two of our very own, Katie and Gabby, created this beautiful painting to add a little sunshine and send a message of hope. This piece, amongst many other amazing contributions will be hung around the Mad River Valley. It is a lovely reminder that we are all in this together!

 

Sunny Days Are Coming

 

We’re also excited to announce our continued support of Green Up Vermont‘s Green Up Day, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. Usually held on the first Sunday in May, this year the event has been rescheduled to May 30th. Our staff will be participating in clean-up efforts on our grounds, and we encourage others to support this initiative to keep our state beautiful!

CHARITABLE GIVING PROGRAM

The Social Impact Program (SIP) has been organizing many recent charitable donations in response to the devastating effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Sunshine Fund

Though the taproom is currently closed, we have been delighted to see our guests continuing to show their support for our Sunshine Fund via donations on purchases made at our retail store, which remains open. From March 16th – April 17th, Lawson’s Finest collected donations totaling $5,164 for the Mad River Valley Community Fund, which is providing emergency grants for sudden unemployment due to COVID-19 precautions. From April 17th – May 31st the Sunshine Fund will accept donations on behalf of the Vermont Community Fund‘s COVID-19 Response Fund which supports the most vulnerable people and communities in Vermont by addressing the basic needs of food, shelter, safety, and mental health.

VT Women's Fund

The Vermont Women’s Fund was astonished to receive their donation totaling $15,226 which was collected from March 1st – 15th. As a thank you, they will be sending our staff t-shirts. Since our taproom opening in October 2018, we’ve been able to donate half a million dollars to local non-profit organizations through the Sunshine Fund!

Good Brews for a Cause

Pink Boots Brew

The ladies of Lawson’s Finest brewed Summit Sour as a fundraiser for the Pink Boots Society. We donated $1 from every bottle and draft sold – totaling $668 – in addition to creating many fond memories during the brewing and packaging processes!

Big Spruce

Our collaboration beer with Big Spruce Brewing, 98 Degrees in the Shade, will provide 100% of profits to Frontline Foods Vermont in the anticipated donation amount of $4,026. Frontline Foods Vermont provides meals to frontline healthcare workers in Vermont by connecting local restaurants with hospitals.

Phirst Light, our collaboration beer with Upper Pass Beer Company, will provide 100% of profits to the Vermont Brewers Association in the anticipated donation amount of $4,000 to help ensure the continued health and vitality of Vermont breweries.

 

Super Sessions

 

We are leaving the application open, however, are holding off on funding any applications until it is safe to reconvene in communities again since the Super Sessions initiative’s goal is to foster social gatherings.


RETAIL STORE

SIPS OF SUNSHINE

Although we may be apart quite a bit, we at Lawson’s Finest are finding joy and humor in life’s smallest pleasures. We want to remind you that we are all in this together, and are looking forward to sunny days ahead with you.

Sip of Sunshine

Despite the strange times we find ourselves living in these days, we have had a lot to be thankful for lately. First off, we were delighted to receive the news that we were named as the 2020 Vermont Small Business Person of the Year by the U.S. Small Business Administration. Lawson’s Finest Liquids was recognized for its employment growth, success in the marketplace, company expansion and community involvement. We would like to thank all of our loyal staff and fans who have helped us along the way!

Sean and Karen Lawson

Another bright spot came in the form of celebrating our twelfth anniversary on March 17th. While we’ve had to postpone the taproom anniversary celebration originally planned for May, we all raised a glass to honor tapping the very first keg of Sugarhouse IPA and to selling the first pint of Lawson’s Finest Liquids at Mad River Glen‘s General Stark’s Pub in 2008.

In other news, we’re finding ways to do things together while we’re apart at Lawson’s Finest Liquids! We’ve started a weekly staff virtual happy hour to reconnect and recharge our batteries while most of us are working remotely.

We want to virtually connect with all of you as well while you’re practicing safe social distancing and enjoying a cold beer! If you find yourself sipping on some of our fine liquids, take a photo and post with the hashtag #SippingSunshine so we can follow along!

And should you find yourself itching for a creative outlet while you’re staying home, please use one of our Lawson’s Finest taproom coloring sheets and share it with us!
