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

The Warren Store is a real throw back and quintessential VT in my opinion. Tiny shop in front with loads of VT products, some type of boutique upstairs that I didn't visit so I'm not sure what is going on up that way, and a deli that makes excellent sandwiches in the back. I had the "Turkey Tumbler" on a fresh baked white roll that was fantastic albeit a bit pricey at $8.50. The beer cooler is across from the deli counter and isn't large but offers good choices including Lawson's when available.

In the quite little Vermont town of Warren, on historic Main Street sits The Warren Country Store. Old, rustic, turn of the century type of place. You think you walked back in time. They have a deli with home cooking prepared everyday from scratch with locally grown products. Featuring a full breakfest and luncheon menu.

The bakery is behind the store, all the breads, pastries and desserts are baked fresh everyday. They also have an upstairs with all kinds of stuff, clothing, toys etc.

But the real reason to come here is because this is the only place that I know of where you can purchase Lawson's Finest Liquids. In an old wooden door refrigerator was the prize, Maple Nipple and Chinooker'd IPA. Those were the only ones' there and I bought them all. They said that if I wanted to wait a few hours they would have more. I declined. It's best if you call ahead because it's stocked on a rotating basis and you never know what will be on the shelves, if any. There were a few other local brews there also, Rock Art etc. and some Dogfish Head, man does he get around. But I was only interested in The Lawson's.

I enjoyed my step back in time...
