Lawson’s Finest Liquids Unveils Exquisite Limited-Edition Summer Brews: Scrag-arita and Elderberry Gose

In an exciting announcement, Lawson’s Finest Liquids, the renowned Vermont craft brewery celebrated for its unwavering dedication to quality and sustainability, has revealed the launch of not one but two captivating summer beers. These exceptional seasonal brews, Scrag-arita and Elderberry Gose, are set to grace the shelves for a limited time, offering beer enthusiasts a delightful taste of summer.

“Summertime in the Northeast is something special. Whether you enjoy camping, lake time, exploring trails or simply backyard barbecuing, there’s something epic to do all summer long. At Lawson’s Finest, our mission this season is to offer you the perfect refresher for any summer activity, and that’s exactly what we’ve done with Scrag-arita and Elderberry Gose,” said Sean Lawson, founding brewer of Lawson’s Finest Liquids.

Scrag-arita: A Refreshing Twist on Tradition

The first of these limited-edition treasures, the Scrag-arita, takes the classic Czech Pilsner to new heights by infusing it with zesty lime juice and a touch of invigorating sea salt. The result is a harmonious blend of crispness and tartness that dances on the palate. Originally known as Scrag Mountain Pils With Salt & Lime, this exceptional brew has earned the affectionate moniker "Scrag-arita," a term lovingly coined by the passionate team at Lawson’s Finest and their enthusiastic taproom visitors. The popularity of this refreshing gem has led to its permanent place in the lineup.

For those who crave the essence of a summer cocktail, a tantalizing opportunity awaits. Cocktail aficionados are cordially invited to savor a Scrag-arita cocktail by effortlessly combining this revitalizing beer with a handful of simple ingredients. The exclusive recipe can be found here, allowing fans to craft their own unique twist on this beloved brew.

Elderberry Gose: A Burst of Native Flavors

Accompanying the Scrag-arita is the delightful Elderberry Gose Fruited Sour, boasting a 5% ABV that's perfect for those long summer days. Each tiny violet-black elderberry packs a potent punch of tartness, showcasing the essence of native New England flavors. These berries flourish wildly on bushy plants, adorned with delicate white flowers, making them the quintessential local ingredient for this limited-release summer sensation.

“Kettle souring and a light malt base leave this brew with a pleasant pucker that gives way to a clean, fruity sip,” said Julie Smith, Lawson’s Finest’s brewery lab manager. “The color highlights the herbal flavor profile of elderberries while the flavors offer an exciting and refreshing profile for summer that is a bit different from traditional citrusy sours.”
