June Beer News


Starting June 15, you will find draft and bottles of Bit o’ Balsam American IPA (6.5% abv), a brand new beer featuring wild crafted Balsam Fir tips harvested at high elevations in the Green Mountains, with citrus & piney hops including Cascade, Centennial and Simcoe. Lawson’s Finest will donate a portion of all proceeds from Bit o’ Balsam IPA to Vermont Center for Ecostudies (VCE) to benefit research and conservation efforts of the endangered Bicknell’s Thrushone of the region’s highest conservation priority migratory songbirds. Bottles will be available 6/15 at Warren Store and Hunger Mountain Co-op, 6/16 at Beverage Warehouse and 6/20 at Craft Beer Cellar Waterbury.

Starting June 22, the latest batch of Space in Between will be released in bottles and draft in Vermont. Bottles will be available 6/22 at Warren Store and Hunger Mountain Co-op, 6/23 at Beverage Warehouse and 6/27 at Craft Beer Cellar Waterbury.

During this month, you’ll find fresh batches of Sip of Sunshine IPA and Super Session #2 (cans and draft) around the states of Vermont, Connecticut and Massachusetts.


June 10th is the Sugarbush Brew Grass festival where we will pour Super Session #2, Kiwi Double IPA, Double Sunshine IPA, and Rico Poivre Rye Peppercorn Saison. Look for us at a swanky new tent set up courtesy of our friends at Umbrella Bars USA!

On June 17th join Brewer and Naturalist Sean Lawson as well as Vermont Center for Ecostudies (VCE) biologists from 10:30am – 2:30pm at Mad River Glen (MRG) for a hike to the summit of Stark Mountain in search of the elusive Bicknell’s Thrush and to learn about songbirds that inhabit both the northern hardwood and high elevation spruce-fir forests of Stark Mountain. Wear waterproof clothing and sturdy footwear, and bring protection against the possibility of black flies. The hike will be cancelled in the case of steady rain.

Also on June 17th from 3-6pm MRG will host a fundraiser for VCE with a full pub menu (including prime rib starting at 4:30!), quenching drinks and rocking music by Peace in the Valley. Suggested donation of $10 goes directly to the Vermont Center for Ecostudies. Lawson’s Finest will debut a new draft beer, Bit o’ Balmsam IPA, and a portion of all the beer proceeds will be donated to VCE to benefit research and conservation efforts of the endangered Bicknell’s Thrush (one of the region’s highest conservation priority migratory songbirds). Sean Lawson has been a steadfast volunteer for the Mountain Birdwatch program where he conducts an annual bird survey at dawn high in the peaks of the Green Mountains. Sean has been fortunate enough to witness the Bicknell Thrush’s unique & beautiful song for nearly 15 years!

It’s race day June 29th! At 7pm Thunder Road in Barre will host the “Brewers Cup” featuring many local Vermont brewers including Sean Lawson! Come cheer on the brewers as they race around the track to the finish line!

The recent batch of our award winning Maple Tripple will be bottled the end of this month. Stay tuned for details on our anticipated late summer release!
