This week on Beer Sessions Radio, the Beer Geek All-Stars talk beer! Starting the fall season off strong, Jimmy welcomes Sean Lawson, of Lawson’s Finest Liquids in Waitsfield, VT, and Kevin Kain, AKA @CasketBeer, beer writer and blogger in Westchester, NY.
To kick things off this season, Jimmy decides to get back to the big picture: talking beer. Sean delves into his 9 state distribution initiative on exporting the taste of Vermont craft beer to the rest of the nation’s beer market, and the new specialty releases that are coming out of Lawson’s Finest every month. Kevin fills us in on his Casket Beer project, which highlights the humbler beers that deserve the same level of hype as bigger names. He also reminisces on a lifetime of snowboarding and family trips to Vermont, and how a pack of Sip of Sunshine can light up a party.
As the show goes on, Jimmy and Sean lean into the Kiwi Double IPA, which is made using hops from New Zealand. The Beer Geek All-Stars continue to ponder Vermont’s “little sprinkle of magic”, and the surprising flavors of real sap and maple. Later on, the gang goes deep, dishing out some wisdom for novice brewers (quick tip from Sean: brew with SAP!).
