October Beer News


During October we have three exciting beer releases (package and draft) to keep on your radar!

Saturday, October 5th we will be releasing Homestead Harvest IPA. Our 100% Vermont-grown IPA is brewed with freshly harvested Homestead centennial wet hops and malted barley and wheat from Peterson Quality Malt. Straight from the field to the kettle!

Saturday, October 12th is the release of Starkbier! This richly flavored, full bodied lager beer is brewed in the tradition of German Doppelbock with a decoction mash. Aromas of sweet dark sugar and toasted caramel are balanced with earthy Noble Saaz hops.


Saturday, October 19th we are welcoming back Fayston Maple Imperial Stout to our lineup! The temps are dropping and this stout will be sure to warm you up. Our Imperial Stout is brewed with loads of roasted and black malts and a hefty dose of Vermont maple syrup. The result is a rich and complex beer perfect for sipping or pairing with chocolate or dessert.

Lawson's Finest Brewery


Lawson’s Finest has chosen to pay our staff generous living wages and full 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.

October 1st-15th our taproom donations will be given to the Mad River Path. They build, maintain, and conserve trails and pathways across the Mad River Valley and into the hills that connect people to businesses, the natural world, and special places. The Path is also working with the community to create one continuous public pathway between Warren and Moretown.

October 16th-31st our taproom donations will be given to the Family Center of Washington County. They provide varying levels of family centered case management and parent education to support healthy families and children which help build strong communities. Programming includes parenting support and education workshops, quality child care, early intervention services, and community events.
