A decent little shop beerwise, and pretty note otherwise as well. Small selection (3-4 bottles) of Lawson’s on my visit, some of which I hadn’t had before, which was nice. If you’re looking for Lawson’s I suppose this is the best place to go. They also have a moderate selection of other New England breweries. Plenty of other reasons to pop in, though: they’ve got lots of good food items and other country store stuff. Worth a visit.
Warren store is a little countryside gem, but outside for the odd chance (yet better than almost anywhere else) to catch a few Lawson’s finest bottles available for sale, it’s not really a beer geek paradise. Trust me though, if you’re on the road with your family or a wife who could care less about beer, the stop will be appreciated by all. The surroundings are also very nice with the nearby creek offering nice picturesque viewpoints.

This is not really a beery place, but I guess it has to be included since it is pretty much the only store that carries bottles from Lawson’s Finest, that one-man brewery in the village. The hamlet of Warren is truly beautiful with its rushing river, quaint bridge and white church on a hill overlooking the small main street. And this olden mom and pop general-type store fits in perfectly. The sandwiches and wraps they make are pretty good. A great lunch, especially when had on their terrace which overlooks the river. They only had one of Lawson’s beers when we visited, so that was pretty disappointing, but this secluded and very quiet picturesque village made up for the near lack of great beer. I come back every time I’m driving around this picturesque area of Vermont.
Went here with my wife and Paul (dickinsonbeer) after our camping trip for the opening of Hill Farmstead in Greensboro Bend en route to a night in Burlington. We stopped in for breakfast and a few bottles of Lawson’s Finest, as it seemed this was one of (or maybe the only) the only places to find their beer. The breakfast was pretty good. I opted for an egg sandwich, while they both went for the pancakes and thick cut bacon and VT maple syrup. Everything was tasty. The place itself is very neat. Eclectic country store with a deli and breakfast area, in store seating, and a wide variety of edibles and other things. Glad we stopped here.
great spot, thursdays is the Lawson;s delivery day, get there early though. quaint, country store. very friendly staff 7 customers. Food was outstanding. No lawsons when i got there but locals, so evil twin, Vermont meads. Great place
List most others, I’ve only been here to grab beer. I have picked up food a few times. the drive to and from warren is really chill and the staff very understanding of the amount of beer geek that come here to buy VT brews. Prepare to be stared at weirdly by the locals that for some reason are still surprised people come here to buy beer after it’s been ’normal’ for 3 years.
fun old building. nice floors. warm apple cider. sandwiches. clothing upstairs. pickled stuff, popcorn, other random foods. a go to place for lawsons beers if you go during hte right time of the week. heady topper regularly available as well.
My first stop on my recent Vermont trip. GPS got me a tad lost, it thought this place was a trailer, once I figured out what went wrong I went down the road about a mile and found the actual store.
Upon entering I was a bit overwhelmed, there is a TON of stuff packed into this small place. I checked out the front area and upstairs first because I knew once I made it to the beer I would be done for. Lots of different baked goods and treats scattered around the area, I picked up a few for later in my trip. Lots of different clothes upstairs, I almost bought a hat but they didn’t have one that would fit my giant head.
Service was good. I talked to a few of the workers about the shop and the beer and they knew quite a bit about it all. Selection is a little limited but what they have is quite a bit of Lawson’s and since that is the reason all of us stop there that is plenty for me. I picked up a few bottles and got a Lawson’s glass to go along with them. I didn’t try the food but it looked really good, I will definitely try it next time.
Overall a really cool store that I will definitely return to when I am in the area.
Finally, the destination of today’s beer trip. Definitely my time of store, a general store through and through, some may be disgusted by its appearance but given my personality, I loved this place and also with the fact that I found Lawson’s Triple Sunshine, uh...hell yeah! Other beers, well, they leave maybe a bit to be desired, but hey, when in Warren, this is where you get the Lawson’s bottles, just saying.
