November 10, 2009 - 5 pm to 11 pm
The culmination of the second collaboration between Lawson's Finest and Zero Gravity brewpub at Flatbread Hearth in Burlington takes place next Tuesday!
Thanks to the generosity of Paul Sayler and brewer Destiny Saxon at the Zero Gravity, Lawson's Finest and ZG have teamed up again! We scaled up a recipe based on my hoppy Papelblonde Ale and brewed it back in early October. Still ruminating on a new name...Think blonde, hop-forward American pale ale type of beer. If you want to nominate a new name please send an email to me at lawsonsfinest AT inbox.com. If we choose your name, some Lawson's goods are your reward.
We're pulling out all the stops for this one folks!
Yes indeed, we'll be topping our VT Brewers Fest offerings with TEN different brews on tap, which for VT's smallest brewery is no small feat. There are several special beers that were made just for this event, and I'll be pulling some bottles from the 'vault' to open during the evening. Hope you can make it!
As a bonus, we are delivering some bottles to the Beverage Warehouse in Winooski thru our distributor the same day for a very limited Burlington area offering. Ask Jeff Baker at the BW, as they may not be on the shelf.
Here's the official word from WobblyJeff at ZG/AF who's also pivotal in making this event and our collaboration:
"Straight from the Green Mountains to our tap lines. We have been planning this one for over a year. Finally us folks in Burlington will get some Lawson's action in tap form. The lineup has us salivating...plus a few surprises in bottles. Do not miss this one. Seriously."
