Made a pilgrimage here from The Alchemist in search of some Lawson's beer. A few things about this place. Its like a country store & restaurant in one. Didn't eat there, but looks like a quaint place to get a bite--there is a creek right outside that would be nice to sit next to and eat or enjoy a beer.

First off, the Warren Store sells Lawson's-- so its the place to go!

1) When Lawson's says they deliver on Thursday's, go on Thursday. Don't drive there any other day hoping to find it. The people there told me it sells out in a matter of hours on delivery day.
2) General beer selection there is pretty poor. I mean they have a few other Vermont beers, but its not a selection worth driving out of the way for. I want to say 12-15 beers tops.
3) It was on my way back to NJ to avoid taking I-89 through NYC, but being that its a bit off the beaten path, you should really call ahead of time (even on Thursday).

Your best bet for Lawson's at this point in time if you can't get to Warren on delivery day, is to try it on tap at places in VT or at a venue like the ACBF in Boston.

As far a beers go, this place deserves a 2. They get small weekly shipments of Lawson's and Heady Topper that go immediately. Other than that the selection is weak. If you're driving through Vermont, unless you know it's the right day, don't waste your gas driving out here.

Throwback is the operative word here. In the heart of the hippie nation of the Mad River Valley, this place is like walking back to 1972 or so. The Dead were heavily jamming on the stereo when I walked in just after 8 in the morning, veggie breakfast burritos cooking in the back, lots of nice antique display areas, local artisinal cheeses for sale, super friendly staff, and most importantly...they get deliveries of Lawson's Finest liquid on a regular basis. Go for the tasty/healthy home made chow, cheeses, Lawson's super hard to find brews, a dose of crunchy good karma, as well as a smattering of other BA worthy brews. Besides the Lawsons, they offer a non memorable smattering of other easy to find but quality locals, and a few regional/nationals..If you are just interested in tracking down some lawson's, as I admit I was, call ahead, go on Friday/Saturday and then its time to see what all the fuss is about

Rustic general store in Central Vermont, most known as one of the few places to acquire brews from Lawson's Finest Liquids. Called a few days in advance of our trip and was told to call on Friday, the day of the delivery. Called at 8:35am and was told they can hold 2 bottles of that weeks shipment, but no notification of what they would be.

Store is on the main street of a sleepy town. Parked in the gravel lot and entered the old time feeling store with wood planked floors , walls and ceilings. Organized fairly well with a checkout counter at the front, wine on one side, a deli area in the rear with a few old iceboxes which contain a good selection of local brews and a small selection of domestic craft. Great selection of Vermont Cheeses, candies and assorted maple items and good selection of prepared foods available to eat at a folding table or two towards the front. Beer was held towards the checkout in a brown paper bag.

Nice little spot to browse while the main purpose of most our visits is the Lawsons.
