Sean Lawson of Lawson’s Finest Liquids has been a very busy man. Last year, in April, he had announced that they’d be building and opening a brewery out in Waitsfield in Vermont and now he has announced that they’ll be expanding their distribution into Massachusetts.
This bright and sunny news isn’t a huge surprise considering that they had recently dropped a few cases of one of their flagships, Sip of Sunshine, to numerous stores in the Boston area in early December last year. They recently signed a new distribution deal with Atlantic Beverage Distributors and will be leveraging their new facility out in Holliston to facilitate this. They’ll be having regular drops every single month moving forward and Sip of Sunshine will also soon be joined by the award-winning Super Session #2 beer as well.
Hopheads rejoice, relief is coming to the Boston-area shelves soon so keep your eyes peeled for those bright yellow cans.
As far as updates on the construction of their brewery, no updates on that end but stay tuned for more to follow on that later this year.
For those who missed the announcement a few months back, Sierra Nevada’s Beer Camp is coming to Boston! This year’s festival will be held outdoors at City Hall Plaza on Saturday, June 18th.
The lineup of breweries has continued to grow (over 100 and counting!) including several heavy hitters like Lawson’s, Kane, Trillium, and Wicked Weed alongside recently opened MA breweries such as Bent Water, Kayfabe, IndieFerm, Brazo Fuerte, and Portico.
As of now, advanced tickets are on sale at a discounted rate of $50 and $70. (The extra $20 allows for entry into the festival an hour early.) Designated Driver tickets are available for $35, as well. Once the “limited number” of advance tickets sell out, the prices go up to $65 & $85, respectively.

Sean Lawson of Lawson’s Finest Liquids, out in Vermont, has been a very busy man. One of his beers, Maple Tripple, recently won a silver medal at Colorado’s hugely popular Great American Beer Festival and he has also launched a brand new website. He also collaborated, once again, with the Otter Creek Brewing Company folks to release a second batch of their popular Double Dose IPA which came out a few weeks ago. So it’s only fitting that he keeps things going on a full throttle as he now looks to try and get his Sip of Sunshine beer canned. That’s right folks, Sip of Sunshine will soon be available in 16oz cans! Sean will be travelling to Virginia to the Ball Plant to oversee and approve the initial production and the cans should be available, hopefully, by the end of December.
He will also be taking what he referred to as a “Sabbeerical“, enabling him to focus on a few things such as making improvements to his brewing facility and also enabling him to meet with other brewers to keep working on various collaborations. The two collaborations that are announced are with breweries he’s already collaborated with, and they are, you might have guessed it, with Tree House Brewing as well as Otter Creek Brewing. No major details on the beers have been released as of right now except that the latter of the two collaborations which will be known as “Double or Nothing!” and will be a dark, cellarable beer. It should be available later this winter.
Last but not least, it appears that they will also be collaborating with the folks over at New England Brewing Company out in Connecticut and that beer will be released sometime in the first half of 2015.
So while Sean Lawson and his crew keep busy, it appears that the future ahead if very bright and filled with many delicious beers as always. Fans can look forward to seeing those cans later this year and the improvements to the brewing facilities will only make things better for all as they upgrade their Co2 valves, storage and lighting, amongst other things. Stay tuned for more updates down the road.
