Lawson’s Super Session #2

What the hell is in Vermont’s water? An easily forgotten about state, once jokingly known to most New Englanders as the Killington Ski Resort state, has emerged as a veritable Shangri-La within the craft beer world. People from around the world plan pilgrimages to Vermont in order to taste some of the renowned fermented liquids from the likes of The Alchemist, Hill Farmstead, and Lawson’s Finest Liquids.

Evil Twin Lil’ B

Evil Twin Brewing is a gypsy brewery originating from Copenhagen, Denmark with headquarters in Brooklyn, N.Y. In order to fully understand the origins of Evil Twin, one would need some knowledge of the relationship between founder Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergso and his identical twin brother Mikkel Borg Bjergso, founder of Mikkeler Brewing. The intent of this article is not to go into detail about the brothers and their somewhat tumultuous relationship, but if you were particularly interested, I would suggest looking at this piece from The New York Times

Two Roads Road 2 Ruin DIPA

Two Roads Brewing Co., which has only been open for a little over two years, has quickly become one of the largest breweries in the state of Connecticut.

Part of this is due to their location, just a few blocks from I-95 in Stratford; part of it is due to its facility, which is in a beautifully repurposed factory building that use to be home to a company that made metal presses. This allows Two Roads to do contract brewing, currently it is brewing Lawson's Sip of Sunshine DIPA, among others. And they have a fantastic tasting room, on the second floor overlooking the brewing operations. But they have also been producing some good beer since the beginning, and their Road 2 Ruin Double IPA is one of their original brews that doesn't disappoint.
