UPDATE – 7th Anniversary Party!

April 18, Lawson’s Finest 7th Anniversary Celebration will take place at the Valley Players Theater, Waitsfield, VT.  Click here for a Google map of Valley Players Theater. We are thrilled to celebrate seven years of brewing and to raise funds for several worthy causes: a local family in the Valley affected by cancer and the Mad River Valley Ambulance Service.

We’ll have tasty beer, food, Lawson’s merchandise & a great time as we celebrate our 7th Birthday! See below for beer list.

PLEASE NOTE: ONLY CASH ACCEPTED FOR BOTH THE DAYTIME MARKET AND EVENING BALL! (No credit or debit cards or out of state checks will be accepted!)

Several local restaurants will be joining us in the celebration, each serving multiple Lawson’s Finest drafts and a special offering! At the Mad Taco in Waitsfield, we are tapping a cask of the Permagrin Rye Pale Ale; at the Prohibition Pig in Waterbury we are featuring our collaboration brew Reverse Whirlpool IPA, and at the Worthy Burger in South Royalton we are featuring a special Lawson’s Burger.

NEW THIS YEAR: Advanced tickets are REQUIRED for entry to the Beer Lover’s Market from 1-5pm.  Tickets will be available starting Monday April 13 at 7:00am.  Visit this website for tickets.
