new to me at least
oh, I see you can't visit the brewery
our local store gets some and it's sold out in a day.
Lawson's Finest Liquids - Beer Menu

there's also a new one toward the NEK that is quickly becoming legendary

Oh! Lawson's isn't that new. He's been around for a while. Excellent beer. And I've been to Hill Farmstead twice now. His beer is amazing, though expensive.

Yes $10 to $20 dollar bottles of beer aren't uncommon these days.

As a Jets fan, I'm thinking about an expensive beer or wine splurge for the game. If I do it though, they'll lose. Should have done it last week.

That's cheap compared to the $15 500ml bottles at Hill Farmstead. At least his growler fills are only $15 (though the growler itself is $10).

cool i will like to try that but doubt i'll get over to the brewery itself any time soon. we might hit up the montpelier farmers market this saturday and see if there's anything interesting. thankfully i dont have to fight the crowd Lawson's crowd there.

do you have any suggestions for a good vermont ale I can find in a 6pack (as opposed to 22 etc). looking for a good one-a-day beer

I've always been a big fan of Long Trail. Their Long Trail Ale, IPA, Pale Ale, and Double Bag are all really good and come in 6 packs. If you consider Harpoon a VT brewery, most of their beers are really good, too. Rock Art has some 6 packs, but I'm not a huge fan of most of them. Their 22's are all usually awesome. If you want a Rock Art 6 pack, I'd go for the limited stuff, like Midnight Madness, though that might only be available at the brewery.

i agree i don't really like the rock art 6packs much, probably not coincidence since the 22s are usually bigger beers

i picked up a rock art 22oz of "Black moon ipa" (a limited release in conjunction with the hunger mountain coop) also to try with a friend and got a chance to try the Lawson's maker's Mark Bourbon Barrel-Aged Fayston Maple Imperial Stout which was great but will be better in a few years i bet (I am not too good about sitting on good beer), already spent my beer budget this month anyway! we should probably have a dedicated VT beer thread!
