New artisanal microbrewery opens in Warren

Brewer Sean Lawson is passionate about his vision statement. “High on hill, in the Sugarhouse Brewery, tiny batches of Lawson’s Finest beer are carefully tended to bring you a remarkable beverage that is only available in the heart of the Green Mountains.” Lawson started home brewing over eighteen years ago. Stints at the Breckenridge Pub and Brewery in Breckenridge, Colorado, and Beaver Street Pub and Brewery in Flagstaff, Arizona served as an apprenticeship that culminates in a new beginning with the advent of Lawson’s Finest in Warren, Vermont.

The artisanal microbrewery began production in March 2008 supplying several local restaurants and The Warren Store. Sean and his wife and business partner Karen refer to the modest facility where the beer is made as the “Sugarhouse Brewery.” It was built in classic sugarhouse style with a cupola and ventilator doors. The entrepreneurs are celebrating their inaugural event, called “Lawson’s Launch!” on Sunday, June 15th with a Father’s Day BBQ and beer-tasting event from 5-9 pm in the garden at The Pitcher Inn in the village of Warren. Thanks to overwhelming response, the event sold out in less than forty-eight hours. The Pitcher Inn is, however, taking names on a waitlist.

Lawson’s Finest is presently available only in the local area, guaranteeing a fresh and high quality product that is part of the Vermont experience. Lawson’s Finest initial offerings include the Fistful-O-Hop India Pale Ale, Crooked Cabin Brown Ale, Papelblonde Ale, Weiss-K Wheat Bier, Woodchuck Stout, and their infamous Maple Nipple. You can find Lawson’s Finest on tap at The Pitcher Inn in Warren, American Flatbread in Waitsfield (open Fri. and Sat. eves), The Common Man restaurant in Warren (bottles only), and with a custom “Porch Pint” at the Village Porch restaurant in Rochester (open Thurs.-Sun.). Bottles can be purchased (22 oz. singles only) at The Warren Store. For more information call (802) 272-8436, email [email protected] or visit their website at
