NEWS YOU NEED TO KNOW

The most exciting news we have to share in 2018 is the official opening of our new brewery, taproom and retail store located in Waitsfield, Vermont! After two and half years of planning, permitting, construction, and interior design, we have officially opened our doors to the public with a highly skilled team of employees ready to serve fresh beer and fantastic food.

It’s an exciting time for us to be able to offer the ultimate Lawson’s Finest experience and finally have a destination for all our fans to visit. We are open seven days a week, 12-7pm Monday through Friday and 11am-7pm Saturday and Sunday!

We will be closed for Thanksgiving. We will resume normal operating hours on Friday; 12-7pm!

If you’re curious of what to expect at the taproom and retail store when you visit, check here.

Our taproom offers a warm, inviting experience with a variety of Lawson’s Finest beers, fine wine, hard cider and non-alcoholic beverages as well as local light fare. The family-friendly atmosphere keeps both adults and kids entertained with arcade games, checkers and foosball. Our four season beer garden includes three fire bowls which are adorned with Adirondack chairs to keep you relaxed and toasty on the colder days and corn hole for some fun outdoor entertainment.

The retail store is packed full with vibrant, new merchandise and plenty of beer to take home with you!

Before you leave, swing through the brewery viewing area to see, smell, hear and experience what goes on inside! Our brewery staff hard at work is a beautiful sight to see.

News coming straight from our Waitsfield brewery is the release of Fayston Maple Imperial Stout in cans! Fans of our stout have been waiting patiently to enjoy this rich and complex beer, and for the first time ever it will be packaged in cans.

We’re also thrilled to announce our newest beer, App Gap Saison, will be available only on draft this month – cans available this December! Our Belgian style farmhouse ale has a slightly spicy character, fruity yeast-driven esters and an effervescent, dry finish. If you’re planning a visit to our new brewery, taproom and retail store don’t forget to check here to see both our draft line-up and retail offerings!

Two of our local media organizations are just as excited about our opening as we are! Take a moment to read the Seven Days article as well as the Burlington Free Press article to give you an idea of what you are in store for when you visit!

Lawson’s Finest Liquids was recognized by the readers of Beer & Brewing Magazine amongst the Top 25 Favorite Small Breweries! Being nominated by those who love and appreciate our beer is a high honor and we couldn’t be more thankful.
