We’re celebrating a decade!

UPDATE 4/12/18

We are pleased to announce that our 10th Anniversary celebration raised $10,884 for two local non-profits! Beer fans from Vermont and throughout the Northeast congregated in Waitsfield Saturday, April 7th at the Valley Players Theater for another successful and fun-filled day and evening of music, great food from Canteen Creemee and unique specialty brews! Every year, this event benefits a different set of charitable causes. This year’s beneficiaries are Mad River Valley Television and the Mad River Path Association. Each will receive a check for $5,442 to support their efforts in our local community.

If you missed out on the event, you are not alone – tickets sold out in only an hour! Sean and Karen Lawson look forward to welcoming the entire community to their new taproom location on Carroll Road in Waitsfield this fall. Once open, the Lawson’s will be continuing their 10th Anniversary celebration with a series of special tappenings! Visit Lawson’s Finest website for ongoing updates and videos of the construction, as well as their monthly beer news.


Lawson’s Finest 10th Anniversary Celebration will take place at the Valley Players Theater, Waitsfield, VT on April 7th, 2018. We are thrilled to celebrate ten years of brewing with tasty beer, retail merchandise, food, music and a great time as we raise funds for two local worthy causes: Mad River Path Associationand Mad River Valley Television.
