November Beer News


Our new hours will go into effect on Sunday November, 17th.


Our retail store has 2017 & 2018 Maple Tripple available for you to take home. This ‘once-a-year beer’ is brewed only during sugaring season with 100% maple sap from Hartshorn‘s Farm in Waitsfield, VT and aged for one year in maple liqueur barrels. You can also order a vintage bottle (2013, 2014, 2015) at the bar and have it poured for you!

Our Stony Hill Smoked Porter is back, and this time it’s served on nitrogen! This delicious porter features a dry finish, subtle smokiness, and notes of chocolate and caramel. This is on draft only at our taproom.

In the beginning of the year we filled an array of barrels with our Fayston Maple Imperial Stout and as the months have passed it has been aging to perfection! We are thrilled to announce the first series to come from this labor of love. Keep your eyes peeled for the official release date of our Fayston Maple Imperial Stout Aged in Apple Brandy Barrels and Fayston Maple Imperial Stout with Coffee and Cinnamon Aged in Apple Brandy Barrels. These beers will be available on draft in the taproom and packaged bottles in our retail store.

Special Hours

Our light fare menu changes with the seasons and we have some tasty additions that are must-tries when you visit! We’ve added a grilled cheese made with Red Hen Baking bread and Cabot Creamery cheddar cheese which is perfectly paired with a house made roasted cauliflower soup. We’ve also brought back our delicious vegetarian chili and added a delightful house made kale and artichoke dip! If you’re interested in checking out what we are offering prior to your visit take a look at our menu.

Lawson’s Finest is thrilled to add solar energy to our Waitsfield campus! We are currently installing a 40kW AC array on the roof of the brewery building that will include 140 solar panels and produce approximately 52,000 kWh of electricity per year! We are working with Aegis Renewable Energy, based right here in Waitsfield, VT. While this won’t cover 100% of our electrical needs, we are enthusiastic about adding green energy as part of our company core values to reduce our impact in an energy and materials intensive business. It’s exciting times to be able to use the roof of our brewery to produce energy from the sun, and to help the state achieve its goal of 90% renewable energy by 2050. Our solar system will generate enough electricity to power eight average household’s for a year in Vermont.

Lawson’s Finest has chosen to pay our staff living wages and generous benefits. There is no tip obligation in the taproom. However, if guests choose to leave a donation, 100% will be given to local charitable endeavors.

November 1st-15th our taproom donations will be given to the Vermont Natural Resources Council. Their work promotes legislation that protects Vermonters from toxic contamination in their drinking water, develops ways to fund water clean up in Lake Champlain and aims to protect our statewide rivers, lakes, and wetlands.


November 16th-30th our taproom donations will be given to People’s Health and Wellness. They provide free healthcare for uninsured and underinsured people in Central Vermont, including medical and oral health care, mental health services, bodywork, case management, and more.
