Lawson’s Finest Liquids kicks off May with the release of two specialty pilsners. Scrag Mountain Pils, and its salt and lime-infused counterpart, Scrag Mountain Pils Salt & Lime, are now available at retailers throughout Vermont, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island.
Named in honor of Waitsfield — Vermont’s town water source and the aquifer deep beneath Scrag Mountain — these two pilsners come in at an approachable 4.8% ABV. Scrag Mountain Pils is available through the end of August in both 4-packs (16-oz. cans) and 12-packs (12-oz. cans). Scrag Mountain Pils Salt & Lime — nicknamed “Scragarita” — is available in four-packs until the end of June.
“We always look forward to bringing back Scrag Mountain Pils to distribution because that means summer is right around the corner,” says Sean Lawson, founder and CEO of Lawson’s Finest Liquids. “This year, for the first time, we’ll be distributing our twist on a classic, Scrag Mountain Pils Salt & Lime, outside of Vermont. We can’t wait to hear the stories and see the photos of people enjoying these tasty brews on the beach, in the backyard, or out on the golf course.”
With Scrag Mountain Pils Salt & Lime, Lawson’s Finest infuses the bright qualities of a Czech pilsner with sea salt, fresh lime peel and lime juice to produce a balance of crisp and tart in every sip, the company says. The “Scragarita” nickname is also a nod to the specialty pilsner making for a cocktail.
Scrag Mountain Pils and Scrag Mountain Pils Salt & Lime are two of the six specialty beers that the Vermont-based brewery will release this year to its full distribution territory across the Northeast. Hopcelot, an IPA brewed with eight different varieties of hops, will be Lawson’s Finest Liquids’ next specialty release at the beginning of July. The full 2021 specialty beer distribution calendar can be found here.
