Notes:
A humble brewery with the capacity of 2,000 barrels per year attracted attention under the name Trapp Lager, and the brewery received requests from all over the United States. The von Trapp family, who had always been reticent to commercialize their family heritage, realized that they had a product deserving of the family name. The new 30,000 sq. ft. facility, completed in 2015 under the name von Trapp Brewing, allowed the family to expand beyond their home territory and spread the gospel of craft lagers throughout Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Maine, Rhode Island, New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Virginia, and Philadelphia.

Mixed gift shop, ski lodge, hotel vibe. Restaurant is the prominent feature. Pretzels and beer cheese is great, ribeye was great, and chicken schnitzel was fantastic. Had the Dunkel and Bienna lagers. Both tasty and traditional. In comparison to Alchemist brews down the hill, they will seem thin and weak, but they are great for their style and pair well with the food.

Huge place with a big bar, several tables, an outside picnic seating area, and separate retail area. Von Trapp doesn’t make a ton of beers, but the ones they do are spot on great beers. Their Vienna is amazing. The service was great as we sat at the bar. The selection is fairly limited as far as beer, but they have a nice German leaning food menu. I tried the wurst sampler and enjoyed it the mash potatoes were a highlight. If you like well executed German beers you aren’t going to be unhappy here.

Recommend the brat sandwich. Notch above a pub menu, big open atmosphere with great views and good beer.

Swung by the bierhall for lunch while in VT for a few days. In so many ways it's the cure for the hop-saturated visitor. Beautiful location that's a fork-in-the-road away from The Alchemist. Long winding dirt and gravel road through the trees brings you to a lager-oasis. Sparkling new beer hall that's clean and spacious. Nice large benches and tables with a view of the brewing equipment. Merch out front if you fancy.

Half dozen of their beers on tap; we enjoyed the pilsner, Vienna and Oktoberfest. All crisp, clean, fresh and delicious. No guest beers for sale so the selection is limited to their own beer; bottles/cans available to go. The food was awesome - super tasty and runs the gamut from light (sliced and salted radish) to heavy (freshly cooked brats). We had the radish, salad sampler, chicken schnitzel and pretzels. So good. Sauerkraut-mash is heavenly.

Great vibe, cool scene and fresh beer abound. Like I mentioned - it was the break I was looking for, and the kids had a great time as well. Worth a visit.
