When Sean Lawson opened Lawson’s Finest Liquids, a small craft brewery in Vermont, he had no idea that he would build a passionate following of beer drinkers and aficionados, clamoring for his brews. Despite the fact that the brewery and its brewing capacity are quite small, it has become a well-known establishment that produces some of the most award-winning beer and ales winning numerous awards for its beers, IPAs, and stouts.
Lawson’s Finest Liquids are brewed with precision and quality, taking a classic brewing style and tweaking it to suit their limited resources and inventive flavors. With Sean Lawson being the only employee, it would be an understatement to say that the beer is carefully crafted. What many don’t know is that Sean Lawson can only brew and distribute a limited amount of beer, usually no more than 600 barrels of beer per year.
Lawson’s Finest Liquids is a true microbrewery, located in Warren, Vermont. Run by Sean Lawson and his wife Karen, the brewery produces small batches of superior beer from its home in the Green Mountains. Even though the size of the brewery is small, it has still made a name for itself in the craft beer community.
The beers produced by Lawson’s Finest Liquids have gained so much popularity due to their unique flavor and ingredients, which are all locally sourced. Plus, due to its small size, Lawson’s Finest is able to offer each batch of beer with its own individual identity and signature style.
Due to the small scale of the brewery, Lawson’s Finest Liquids can only make a small production of its beer, usually no more than 600 barrels per year. That’s not a lot of beer given the immense demand for the brews. This demand is further exacerbated by the fact that Sean Lawson is the only employee.
The limitation of their production means that Lawson’s Finest Liquids is somewhat exclusive. Available only at a handful of bars, bottle shops, and farmers markets, the brewery distributes only a select set of beers from year to year. This makes it even more special to be able to get your hands on one of their limited edition brews.
One of Lawson’s Finest Liquids’ popular products is the Maple Nipple. This ale is made with pure Vermont maple syrup and has a sweet flavor that pairs perfectly with meals and deserts. Despite its light flavor, its alcohol content is surprisingly high at 6.5%. The beer is only available from July to September, making it a highly sought after item.
The company also makes a variety of IPAs, including the popular Sip of Sunshine. This highly-rated beer has a mouthfeel like no other and is a great summer beer. It also holds a remarkable 8% ABV rating, making it a great choice for people who appreciate an intense flavor without a heavy alcohol content.
Lawson’s Finest Liquids also produces a few stouts, the most popular being the Super Session Double IPA. This super session beer has a bold and slightly bitter flavor that some beer-lovers absolutely love. It has an ABV rating of 6.0%, making it an ideal beer for any type of occasion.
In 2014, the company launched a crowd funding campaign to expand their brewery and production. Although the company achieved great success, it was short of the $500,000 goal that was set. Despite not reaching the goal, the attempt still raised nearly $400,000.
The campaign’s success however, reflects the growing love for Sean Lawson and his craft beer. Despite making some of the best beer out of a tiny space, he continues to innovate and produce high-quality craft beers that are becoming recognized near and far.
Sean Lawson has built something incredible and remarkable out of his small space in Vermont, a drinking establishment and craft brewery with a cult following. With his beers only available from a handful of local bars, bottle shops, and farmers markets, fans of Lawson’s Finest Liquids have to search for the beer with no guarantee that it will be available. However, even with all this, there
