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.

Feels new and old at the same time. Beautiful location. Indoor, bar, pub, patio and outdoor seating available. Tins of space with walking trails and a chance to really relax and take it all in. Bring the whole family!!
The authentic old world styles are brewed perfectly. A must go!

Tons of parking available, the hilltop location (well, almost) gives views reminiscent of Bavarian bierkellers, lacking the chestnut trees but being family-friendly. There is even a small pond available if the kids want to terrorize frogs. All of their very authentic German/Austrian style beers are (usually, seasonals vary) on tap as well as available in cans and/or bottles. The food is very good and pretty authentic, with even the wursts being ground more like true wursts rather than the American take on sausages found in most "authentic" German food stores (If you have access to an Aldi's, you can get wursts that are properly ground.) Indoor and outdoor seating. Gift shop.

Cool brew hall with a nice selection of European-inspired lagers and ales. If you sit at the bar, you can order food so if the line for a table is long, keep this in mind. We tried a flight and then ordered the Helles lager, which was crisp, clean, and sessionable. We tried pretzels with beer cheese and we were happy that they actually served enough beer cheese for both pretzels (some places can be skimpy -- no names mentioned here). We also tried the salad plate which consisted of five different types of root vegetable salads (beet, carrot, celeraic, turnip, fennel) and they were all very good. The combo of sharing the pretzels and salads with someone hit the spot for a hot summer day. Service was also prompt and everyone seemed nice enough despite the fact they were slammed. Good beer, good food, good service. Check them out.

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.
