Join VBSR for our first ever virtual networking get-together! We have missed offering our normal in-person networking get-together events hosted by member businesses, so we are excited to offer a virtual networking opportunity to the VBSR community!

This 1.5 hour event will kick off with Sean and Karen Lawson providing an exclusive behind the scenes tour of Lawson’s Finest Liquids’ Waitsfield brewery. They’ll also do a live guided tasting of Lawson’s Finest Liquids’ newly released Little Sip IPA, so be sure to grab a four pack before this event so you can participate in the beer tasting!

From there, we’ll launch into three 15-minute rounds of virtual networking, where participants will be randomly added to small breakout rooms and given the chance to informally connect and network with three different groups of get-together attendees. This event is meant to be fun and informal – we look forward to seeing you there!

This virtual networking get-together will take place via Zoom meeting and login details will be sent to registrants via email. The event is free to attend for members (including all employees of member companies/organizations) and $20 for non-members.


Thank you to our host, Lawson’s Finest Liquids!
