The Mad Taco Presents.....50 for 50!

Very exciting news my friends....join Lawson's Finest and The Mad Taco (Waitsfield location) at 8:00am on Saturday April 19th (yes, our Anniversary!) to raise $2,500 for the Desmoid Tumor Research Foundation!

We will be tapping a cask of a one-of-kind, never made before (or again?) beer!!! Bourbon Vanilla Espresso Fayston Maple Imperial (Breakfast) Stout! We will also be handing out the first 50 numbers to guarantee your spot in line when our Beer Lover's Market opens at 2pm, AND serving up a Mad Taco breakfast buffet!! First-come, First-serve.

The breakfast will be available from 8am until 10am, and we will post updates to our Facebook page when the beer tickets run out...or let you know they are still available for a donation to our fundraiser!

What the Stout???

Here's the deal: $50 per person (CASH ONLY) for the first 50 people gets you the following:
1. One of the first 50 numbered tickets for bottle sales at the 6th Anniversary Beer Lovers Ball
2. An all-you-can-eat Mad Taco breakfast buffet of Chilaquiles, Carnitas Hash, Carnitas and Jalepeno pancakes
3. One 12oz pour of cask-conditioned Bourbon Vanilla Espresso infused Fayston Maple Imperial Stout

Every dollar we raise will go right to the Desmoid Tumor Research Foundation, a cause near and dear to our hearts as my (Sean's) sister Dana continues her fight against this deadly cancer.


Can we just come and eat breakfast? Heck yes! Breakfast only will be available for $15 per person to those not donating to obtain a pour of stout and a number ticket.

Can we just come and get a pour of the breakfast stout? - No, The cask will only be available to those who donate $50 for the event.
