Brewing The Finest of Champions

Hello MRV, have you heard the news? A champion has been born brewed!  Yep, on March 5th Warren brew master Sean Lawson of Lawon's Finest Liquids (smallest licensed brewery in Vermont) beat out 127 contenders in a national India Pale Ale competition. Were talking real IPA's here folks, from well known breweries across the land: Sierra Nevada, Harpoon, Sam Adams, Ballast Point, Firestone Walker, Port Brewing... among others.

Mad River Valley, I would like to introduce to you the crowned champion of Brewing News' 2011 National IPA Championship:

Lawson's Finest:  "Triple Play IPA".

A juicy tropical flavor with a tantalizing floral aroma sounds just about right for a sunny day after a record breaking late winter storm. Who couldn't use a little malt backbone with a one, two, three punch, an IPA I shall be honored to know bitter. Here's to going all the way Sean Lawson, you've done us proud!

I searched high and low to find a true sample of this winner to photograph, but as many of you know this is a crafted in the heart of Vermont lable that is well sought after (as it should be).
