A friend of mine has a house up near Killington and we’re made stopping by Long Trail part of our route. After a long hike or full day of skiing, there’s nothing better than cramming yourself uncomfortably full on basic burgers and great beer.

Atmosphere: It’s currently being completely updated and the “restaurant” area of the brewery is growing. The old one was pretty cool – with picnic tables all around, and all you can eat pop corn. I’m curious to see what the new area will be like.

Food: I don’t think I’ve ever eaten there when I wouldn’t have eaten anything I found trail side, so I’m sure my taste buds were bias. However, from what I remember, the food was basic – burgers, fries, onion rings – you know, the healthy stuff. It’s pretty good food, and a definite end to a great day.

Beer: Long Trail’s beer is awesome. I’ve heard rumors that the management is chaos (the owner is notorious for being an ass), but until that effects the quality of the beer, I’ll keep buying it. The quality of the beer is outstanding, in my opinion. I’ll rate the beers individually, but overall, Long Trail Brewery is one of my favorites.

Bottom line: If you’re skiing at Killington, you most likely drive by Long Trail. It’s well worth a visit.

Enjoy-

Went there Oct 2015 on a brewery trip to Vermont. Location is awesome,brewery sits next to a river. My fav. beer there was their Space Juice. Drank beer and skipped rocks in the river.

a must visit, I have been blessed to visit about a dozen times now, food is over the top, the music is very fitting for VT, great setting right on a winding stream, beer is wonderful, always a rarity on tap and there is popcorn!!! The wings are off the chart!

This place gets better every year. The food is really pretty good and the staff is so friendly that you feel like don't want to leave. The beer may not rate as well as some of the new northern VT breweries, but these brewmasters are always offering some real treats that are only availabe at the brewery, sometimes not even available for growler fills. Overall a really great experience. Beware of the food portions. they're HUGE!

If you are driving anywhere near by and you don't stop by you are doing yourself a serious dis-service. Good food, the beer is awesome, staff is friendly and will help you plan the rest of your trip to various VT breweries. Outdoor patio area with adirondack chairs overlook the river that flows directly behind the brewery make for the perfect beer sipping experience.

Went here with my wife after a bad trip riding up through Vermont (long story!). Was glad to finally stop at a place for drinks and food. The brewery space had quite a large dining area with outdoor seating and a bar area centrally located. The space had a cabin-like feel with its wood interior. Stairs lead up to the brewery itself which you can see the action happen. There did not seem to be structured tours, but you still get to peek into their operations.

The place was quite busy, which gave the dining area a festive and social atmosphere. Judging from the location of the brewery, the place probably gets a lot of tourists year-round and a lot of skiers during the skiing months. The wait staff was very friendly and relaxed, much like the atmosphere of the place.

Food menu was decent with general pub items. I had the steak and cheese sub and two beers from the tap. The beer was great, but my sandwich was ok. We ate inside, but near the windows where you can see a nice view of a river. Very idyllic view of Vermont nature from the brewery location.

With a good location and good interior atmosphere, this facility was a great place to visit, relax, and have some beer.

The location is nice, great deck that you can enjoy. It sits right over a river with nice scenery. The service is a little slow and they don't seem to be able to handle the après ski crowd to well. Their beer is fine, I think Limbo is great, other options are drinkable but nothing else is particularly memorable. The food is pub style stuff and is middle of the line at best. Sitting on the deck for a beer or two is fun after spring skiing, but I would not make a special trip.

Living only 30 minutes away, our family makes regular visits to Long Trail. While there isn't a large selection of food, whatever they do offer is great...although a little pricey. The real treat is getting freshly made Long Trail beer on tap. We'll continue being regular visitors.
