Scrag Mountain Pils Salt & Lime now available across brewery’s nine-state distribution territory 

Vermont Business Magazine Lawson’s Finest Liquids is marching towards summer with the release of a specialty pilsner as refreshing as the season itself. Scrag Mountain Pils Salt & Lime, a salt and lime infused Czech-style pilsner, is now available for a limited time at retailers throughout Vermont, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island. 

Scrag Mountain Pils Salt & Lime is a limited-batch that puts a refreshing twist on the brewery’s popular year-round Czech-style pilsner, Scrag Mountain Pils. Both brews are named in honor of Waitsfield, Vermont’s town water source, an aquifer located beneath Scrag Mountain. At 4.8% ABV, Scrag Mountain Pils Salt & Lime is a thirst-quenching and approachable beer. Affectionately nicknamed “Scragarita,” the pilsner is available in four packs (16 oz. cans) until the end of July. 

“Scrag Mountain Pils Salt & Lime is always a sign of summer, and we’re thrilled to bring it back to distribution,” said Sean Lawson, CEO and founding brewer of Lawson’s Finest Liquids. “We’re excited for our fans to enjoy a Scragaritato beat the summer heat.”

Scrag Mountain Pils Salt & Lime infuses the bright, refreshing qualities of a Czech pilsner with sea salt, fresh lime peel and lime juice to produce a well-balanced, crisp and tart flavor in every sip. 

Scrag Mountain Pils Salt & Lime is the latest specialty beer that the Vermont-based brewery will release this year to its Northeast distribution territory. A new hop blend of Lawson’s Finest Super Session IPA will debut in June while Hopcelot, a renowned IPA brewed with eight different varieties of hops, will be released at the beginning of July.
