Lawson’s 1st Anniversary

Posted on Mar 4, 2009 in Our Events, Special Events

It started with sudsy dream nearly 20 years ago. Back in college, I learned how to brew my first batch of beer with a good friend, Matty RAF. Many journeys, lots of encouragement and years later, I embarked on the effort to launch my own brewery. In 2006, we started by forming the business “Lawson’s Finest Liquids, LLC” and broke ground on the humble building that now houses the ‘Sugarhouse Brewery’. In January 2008, I received approval for our federal permit or Brewer’s Notice from the TTB, and soon had my Vermont liquor licenses in hand. Finally, that fateful day arrived and on March 17th, 2008, we made our first sale, and tapped the first keg of Sugarhouse IPA at Mad River Glen ski area, in Waitsfield, VT.
One year later, I raise my glass to you beer lovers! To mark this special occasion, we are planning a small celebration in the Stark’s Pub at Mad River Glen on St. Paddy’s Day, March 17th, 2009 from about 6 to 10 pm. Please join us for special pours of Lawson’s brews and tastings of rare bottles from the vault! Live music starts around 7 pm with the fine tunes of the Phineas Gage project, featuring James Kinne, Erica Stroem, and Rob Williams. Cash bar and light food fare will be offered. For directions,visit Watch for a beer list to be posted in the week prior to the event here on the blog. Please forward to friends of good beer. Thanks for your all your support during our first year as Vermont’s smallest microbrewery! – Sean
