Well off the beaten path, even though it is near Waitsfield. Used to be the only place that you could find Lawson’s Finest Liquids when Sean was still producing smaller amounts of beer. That was what first drew me to this quaint little country store in tiny Warren. A small and pricey beer selection can be found in the old wooden coolers in the back of the store. They have a small eating area where made-to-order sandwiches and breakfast foods can be enjoyed. Lots of Vermont crafts and homemade edibles for sale. Worth a vist just to experience a real VT country store.
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.
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.
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
Like taking a trip back in time. Bottle selection is a fair bit sparse but it has the best selection of lawsosn anywhere... Providing you get thre esrly enough. Some founders, heady topper, and other goodies can be found on any given dsy. Food here is grest do even if you miss out on bottles youll be eating a nice consolation prize. Staff is very friendly.
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.
Great little spot tucked next to a bridge and a bubbling stream in the heart of Vermont. Old country store with a super friendly owner that likes to chat and talk about just about anything. Picked up some Lawson’s and a few Vermont goodies. Great cheese and baked goods with a boutique shop upstairs to send the wife while shopping the beer and wine selections. Worth stopping in especially if they have some Lawson’s available which I believe is Thursdays around noon.
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.
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.
This is real Vermont! The primary source of Lawson’s Finest Liquids has so much more going on.
Great spot for lunch, classic Vermont country store, wood stove and all. Nice penny candy selection, right of rt 100.
Say hi to Phil(the beer guy).
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.
