visited the brewery after a snowboarding trip last january. the service was great and the sampler was a great value that allowed us to try the beers without leaving bombed! it was a great experience, especially after a week on the mountain. highly reccomend stopping by for some good beer and food if youíre in the area!
Up here skiing and we got rained out so we loaded up the family and headed over. It didnít look great from the outside but was awesome. Has a small self guided brew tour which was cool. Good beer on tap plus a nice take home section. Tshirts and other goodies. We had lunch and the food was terrific. The servers are knowledgable and super nice. Really a cool place everyone should check out when in the area.
I love vermont, and this is its epitome. The food service was okay, nothing crazy the same goes for the food itself. But the beer was orgasmic! I discovered the Ale before going there, but with all the different amazing flavors and styles offered, my palette was exploding out of excitiment.
If you get good weather this place is the bees knees. Indoor and outdoor seating, with a lower level down by the river where you can sit on benches and drink and relax. Very nice. About ten taps total; half being the year round selections and half being one offs and seasonals. If you live in the northeast, Long Trail sees pretty wide distribution, so you wonít get many ticks, but damn it this isnít a damn fine place to drink a beer in the late spring/early summer. And probably the fall too.
Long Trail Brewing operates a large facility where one can enjoy a self-guided brewery tour or enjoy a nice meal indoors, or relax on the patio overlooking the river/creek/stream running behind the brewery. We opted for the patio and enjoyed several brewery only beers. There is plenty of brewery swag available to-go along with beers, including a sneak peek at their upcoming winter seasonal, "Sick Day" IPA. The food was quite tasty and featured local ingredients well prepared by the kitchen. The service was very good and remained attentive.
Great selection of Long Trail beers (obviously) all the regulars plus their Brewmaster series which I seldom get a chance to see. Kind of touristy but thereís seating outside by a stream to drink some beer in the shade and have some bar food - dogs, burgers, buffalo chicken, salads... We stopped on a 75 degree, dry, sunny day when outside eating was great. Worth the stop
I enjoyed my visit to the brewery. It has a decent tasting room but small gift shop. All of their active bottled beers are available on tap along with 2-3 special brews. At least one of those brews was only available at the brewery and that was the Hefe I drank. You can take a self-guided tour of the brewery by walking across scaffolding that overlooks the entire process. Open seven days. I also picked up a nice tulip glass. If you are a brewery fan this is worth the stop.
Simple rustic barn like building in the middle of nowhere in Vermont. Beautiful surroundings - rural. Great patio in the summertime by a stream in the back. Service was ok- it was so crowded they really had a hard time. Not all promised beers on tap. That was a bit disappointing. Would like to get back.
Kind of a touristy place. Decent ambience. Ate outside by the water. Waiter (Roy) was very helpful and attentive. Food was quite good. Beer was good. Nothing overwhelming, but nothing to complain about either. Overall, a nice experience
Long Trail brewing almost seems very touristy on first looks. The place was packed on a saturday afternoon with a stiff wait to go with it.
Eating wasnít happening, so Iíll more comment on the beer and service. The selection was very good when it came to their own beers. They offered up plenty of their year round beers to drink+buy along with being able to get some of their more special releases very easily too.
The service was great and fast. Everyone was extremely nice there and very friendly.
The only real downside was the lack of a real brewery tour. Itís just a open walk around which is nice, but it wouldíve been better to have someone give us more info than just walking around.
