Oh yes! High season for beer is here. I like to break out all the special stuff for the festivals, especially this one. We sadly and fondly miss Greg Noonan, brewing pioneer of Vermont. This year’s festival is dedicated to him. If you want tickets, get them now. Saturday PM session is almost sold out. http://www.vtbrewfest.com/

2010 Vermont Brewers Festival — Lawson’s Finest Liquids

Local Potion – Our 2010 VBF Collaboration brew with Destiny Saxon of Zero Gravity brewery at American Flatbread Burlington is a Vermont Maple Ale. Our localvore-style ale is brewed with a ‘New Englander’ malted barley grown by Maine’s Potato Growers, with 100% Vermont-grown Cascade hops, a healthy addition of pure Vermont Maple Syrup from Purinton Farm in Huntington, and ZG house ale yeast. A small portion of the grist was house-smoked with Dave Rooke over apple wood, creating a subtle hint of smoky aroma and flavor. ~5.3% abv

Noonan’s Tribute – A cask of Local Potion, dry-tipped and naturally carbonated in the firkin with one of Greg’s favorite Vermont ingredients, spring tips of the Red Spruce (Picea rubens) tree! – Tapped at SESSION 2 until it’s gone. ~5.3% abv
Weiss-K Wheat Bier – A German style hefeweizen that is best when served up fresh and ‘mit hefe’ (with yeast). A delightfully refreshing ale with a delicate fruity aroma and a mild spicy flavor from our special Bavarian wheat yeast. ~5.4% abv
Chinooker’d IPA – Our award-winning American-style India Pale Ale recipe is chockfull of Chinook hops and bursting with pine and citrus aromas and flavors. This hop-bomb is flavorful and bold with a dry finish. ~6.9% abv
Maple on Brett – A wild Vermont maple ale! Our Maple Nipple Ale base recipe fermented with Brettanomyces bruxellensis wild yeast, imparting a savory twang and sour, horse blanket-like character. 8.8% abv
