Lawson’s Finest Liquids Releases Path of Totality Black IPA

Lawson’s Finest Liquids announces the release of Path of Totality (7.5% ABV), a limited-release Black IPA crafted to celebrate the complete solar eclipse taking place April 8. Path of Totality will be available only in the path of totality for a limited time. Find it at the Lawson’s Finest’s destination brewery and taproom in Waitsfield, Vt., and in limited quantities at select retailers in New York. 

A solar eclipse is an incredibly rare event that occurs when the moon moves between the sun and the earth, totally obscuring the sun. Northern Vermont will be in the path of totality from about 2:14 p.m. to 4:37 p.m., marking Vermont’s first total eclipse event since 1932. 

Brewed in honor of nature’s spectacle, Path of Totality is a beer to moon over. The recipe for this typically hop-forward IPA is brewed with Eclipse hops and darker-than-usual malts, lending the beer a dark color and roasty malt qualities. The interplay of zesty citrus and fresh pine flavors from Eclipse hops and pronounced malt characteristics in Path of Totality pleasantly teases the palate with tides of flavor.

“Vermont is an amazing place to visit any time,” said Lawson’s Finest Liquids CEO Adeline Druart. “But the eclipse is an extra special reason to come and enjoy all that the area has to offer. As part of a warm welcome to all eclipse-gazers, please stop by the taproom and try Path of Totality, brewed just for this once-in-a-lifetime occasion.”

A portion of proceeds from the beer will benefit ECHO, Leahy Center for Lake Champlain, whose mission is to inspire and engage families in the joy of scientific discovery, wonder of nature and care of Lake Champlain. This Good Brews for a Cause release is part of Lawson’s Finest Liquids’ Social Impact Program, which benefits local organizations throughout the year and has donated more than $2 million since 2018.

“ECHO is thrilled to partner with Lawson’s Finest Liquids on the release of Path of Totality. Lawson’s Finest has supported our work throughout the years, and we are especially grateful for their contribution to our eclipse programming and STEM education across Vermont,” said ECHO’s Director of Development Nicole Bova.
