Vermont-based Lawson’s Finest Liquids has announced the release of two summer seasonal beers: Scrag-arita Pils With Salt & Lime and Elderberry Gose.
“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,” says Sean Lawson, founding brewer of Lawson’s Finest Liquids. “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.”
Scrag-arita is a traditional Czech pilsner infused with lime juice and sea salt. This brew, known in years past as Scrag Mountain Pils With Salt & Lime, had been called “Scrag-arita” by the Lawson’s Finest team and taproom visitors so often that the name stuck.
Also appearing this summer is Elderberry Gose Fruited Sour (5% ABV).
Elderberry Gose is woman-powered, imagined and brewed by Julie Smith, Lawson’s Finest’s brewery lab manager. “Kettle souring and a light malt base leave this brew with a pleasant pucker that gives way to a clean, fruity sip,” says Smith. “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.”
Scrag-arita and Elderberry Gose are available for a limited time only, in 4-packs of 16-oz. cans. Find them at Lawson’s Finest Liquids’ brewery, taproom and retail store, or find Lawson’s Finest in the cooler section of retail stores throughout the Northeast.
