Open, airy, lots of wood and stone, lawson’s tap room is inviting and cozy. Plenty of seating around the bar area or at tables, or choose to sit in living room style chairs around the fireplace. I sat around the fireplace and had a couple of fresh double and triple sunshine’s.

The food was good (I got a cheese plate) but nothing super special. They had stuff like grilled cheese sandwiches and chili on the menu. Service was top notch but casual.

The tap room is connected to the beer to go counter which has all the expected basics with occasional specials. I didn’t visit the brewery, but it is a quick walk across from the taproom.

Thoroughly enjoyed it, just wish I could have stayed longer.

On my favorite road in Vermont, Route 100, and in the quaint town of Waitsfield, this is a must-visit for any craft beer fan. Beautiful facility with plenty of room even on a busy day. Always a great can and draft beer selection, friendly staff, and a nice outdoor patio area with proper views.

Visited this world class brewery in the fall of 2019 with my wife. This is a MUST see brewery. The tap room is amazing complete with fireplaces. Service was excellent. Their carry out selection amazed me that they had a plentiful supply of the Double and Triple Sunshine. The only downside for my wife and I was that it is not dog friendly,yet. I talked to one of the brewmasters and he said they are hoping by next year the township will allow them to. So dog lovers stay posted to their website.

Visited with some family while on vaca in Vermont on Friday. Excellent set up. Great beverages. The waitstaff and bartendress was great, even appreciating a borderline joke when ordering their maple amber beer. Food was good and they had a water set up to keep hydrated and an outside fire pit. It all can be summed up in one word: "lavash".

Brand new and gorgeous brew pub. Lots of space to chill and mingle, inside and out. Walking trails via a boardwalk through a nice natural landscape (minus the beer)

It was a Tuesday, so service was easy as you order from the bar and counter area and move to wherever you want.

High quality goods.

Stopped by during Vermont Beer Safari. Beautiful newer building/wood emphasized brewpub. Very spacious with large long U bar and tables; large retail area as well.
Nice food menu. Some creative dishes. All looked good. My double hummus plate included Reg hummus with oil drizzle and black poppy seeds next to a beet hummus similarly drizzled but with sunflower seeds; then accompanied by small potion of marinated asparagus and beets and generous serving of sliced rustic Ren Hen country bread.Delicious and perfect with a Double Sunshine.
Great selection of Lawson brews.
Staff especially bar tender, Heather, were fun and great to share some time with. Other patrons all got into sharing conversation/ stories as well enjoying good background music, food and drinks. Had a great time.

Not sure you could ask for any more out of a brewery spot. Plenty big enough. Great tap list. Retail separate from tap room. Food is great! Absolutely just a perfect place to spend hours or full day!

Finally getting to check this place out!

Wow, what a great vibe - clean, low key instrumental music, couches off in the corner, tables over to the right allowing people to get food. Nice to see kids allowed in the place. Service was really nice. Glassware was all tulips, so I stuck to their saison, smoked porter and imperial stout.

Went home with a six pack of their pilsner. I was thoroughly pleased and can't wait to go back.

I've been waiting for this place to open for years now, This was the place I was looking most forward to on my most recent trip to Vermont. I found in pretty incredible that they have a steady supply of Double and Triple Sunshine here when it used to be so limited a few years back. Anyhow the place is beautiful inside and out. The selection is great, the food was too. The service was top notch also. I was very pleased with Lawson's and I'll be making it up there again someday for sure.

Arrived at open on a Sunday morning. Place was very chill. The branding was perfectly done, not too much but you certainly knew you were at Lawson's. Very family friendly. Smaller than I thought from the outside, but it would certainly take quite a lot of people in there for it to feel cramped. Outside a fire pit with some chairs overlooking the mountains looked ideal if it wasn't 15 degrees out at the time.

Loving some of the lighter ABV beers they've been debuting. They have plenty of hops on although their style is not my bag, outside of Double and Triple Sunshine.

I could spend many happy hours here, and hope to in the future.

The beers are the best in Vermont. Lots of vibe in the taproom with its fireplace. Even a fireplace outside. Kitchen is ok. Moderate prices and sufficient parking space. Really worth visiting!

A just opened facility. Very nice, a decent selection of food, the beer selection was very good. The place resembles a beer hall in skiing place with a large area accommodating plenty of people, all done in a very nice wood color.

Some of the best service I've ever received from any brewery. Not a single person without a smile on their face willing to help.

Great selection and prices. Just an incredible experience.
