Our Ship is about to Blast Off!

Lawson’s Finest Liquids is pleased to announce that we are growing our presence in the Northeast with new territory in Vermont, additional brewing capacity for Connecticut, and by adding the state of Massachusetts to our delivery footprint! Massachusetts Lawson’s Finest is extremely excited to announce that we have chosen Atlantic Beverage Distributors as the proud and capable handlers of our brands. Fans of the highly recognizable bright yellow 16oz Sip of Sunshine cans will be able to get their hands on Lawson’s Finest lupulin-laden liquids every month, with regular deliveries of cans and draft beer beginning January 31st. In future months, Bay State hop lovers will also find Lawson’s Finest Super Session #2, winner of the 2016 National Session IPA Challenge held by Brewing News. This quaffable brew is designed to be light and refreshing with low alcohol, yet the full hop character of an IPA. Sean Lawson, brewer and co-owner of Lawson’s Finest says, “Atlantic has shown us their commitment to keeping our beers cold and getting them to our fans as fresh as possible with their new distribution facility in Holliston and a talented staff.” Vermont Within Vermont, Lawson’s Finest will grow our footprint in the northern part of the state as well as the Upper Valley. “We are stoked to add the legendary ski town of Stowe, and excited by the reception we’ve received from restaurants and retailers” Sean Lawson remarked. Lawson’s Finest will also begin regular deliveries to the White River Junction area soon. Fans of hop forward beers will find Sip of Sunshine IPA and Super Session #2 regularly, as well as special releases of our small batch specialty creations at select locations. Lawson’s Finest Operations Director TJ Greenwood says, “Look for Lawson’s Finest in new locations thanks to the addition of a third truck at the Mad River Food Hub, home to our wholesale distribution company The Beer Guy, LLC.” While the small fleet can’t currently cover the entire state, we are really excited to reach additional towns around Vermont. Furthermore, Lawson’s Finest is poised to break ground this spring on a new Waitsfield, VT location where we will open a 30bbl brewery along with a taproom, retail store, and offices providing a new destination for Lawson’s lovers. Connecticut Starting in February 2017, an expanded supply of cans and kegs of Sip of Sunshine IPA & Super Session #2 will begin rolling out to our wonderful fans in Connecticut. Thanks to our relationship with Two Roads Brewing in Stratford, CT, we brew Lawson’s Finest Sip of Sunshine IPA and Super Session #2 locally and deliver it cold and fresh throughout the state with Hartford Distributors Inc. and Star Distributing.
