What a great brewery! Served the beer at the just the right temperature out of a pint glass and also did flights. Beer prices were relatively cheap which I didn't expect and the brewery itself was located right near Killington, Pico Peak, and the Appalachian Trail. The brewery also provided a self guided tour of their brewery which was cool but not extremely personal by any means. The atmosphere was superb, offering both a tap bar and tables for if you wanted some lunch (only downside was the kids running around the brewery, but it was still really good). The wait staff clearly knew their stuff and were very friendly and quick to get you whatever you wanted! The food was typical kind of bar food, pretty good, but the beer on tap really made the experience. I was never a huge fan of Long Trail until this visit. Their beer on tap is two times better than it is served from the bottle, trust me! Their Limbo IPA and Blackbeary IPA out of the tap is almost too much to handle (not the best while eating a meal though). Absolutely worth a visit

Great river side brew pub. Friendly, long-term staff who know their beer and local Vermont. Good variety of food and most important, beer!

Perfect VT brewery. Right in between Woodstock and Killington so perfect location for some post ski day brew or a great way to cool down after hiking the long trail!

This was a nice suprised visit, as we had been VT roadtripping from Keene, NH. Started out on 9 west to VT. RT. 100 for a day at the Vermont Country Store. Taking RT. 4 to head east toward RT. 5 south for home. There was the Long Trail Brewery, with just enough time for one quick brew.

Sat at the bar, the vibe from patrons and employees was relaxed but fun. Good spirits. The bartenders were all very nice, my wide purchased a ladies t shirt that she loves. Sooo glad we stopped!!

I took a trip to Vermont to visit breweries and this was my first stop. The inside is really cozy, unfortunately the deck was closed for staining. There was to flights to choose from, regular and seasonal. I tried the seasonal and they were decent, my favorite was their Cranberry Gose.

Thick full head with a dark IPA pour out of the can. This batch was canned 12/28/16 and drank on 05/ 29/17.
Nice malt nose and flavor.
I will need to try this fresh but still very good . Mouth feel is hearty, nose is on the dark fruity side.
At 8.7 percent I should have oaces myself better but could not wait for my seond 16 oz. can.

Had a great time here on a family to Vermont. Always been a fan of Long Trail beers but they had a wider range of selection here than what I see back in RI (i.e. Barrel Aged Triple Bag). The atmosphere, service, and food was all great. They were able to accommodate the 16 of us in their tent section, which wasn't too bad at 10 degrees.

Sit on the back deck... even with a drizzle of rain, it is worth it.

This place is off the road kind of in the middle of nowhere (Yes, I know I'm in Vermont) near Killington where we stayed one week in the summer with my cousins. I remember enjoying the food and service but it wasn't too expensive. We went for late lunch one day. I ate a ton of food as portions were large and my wife ate only part of her's. They had ten or twelve selections available including some specialties. I remember drinking a lot of Double Bag during that week but I had their white IPA thing too. Overall, definitely a cool stop if you happen to be in the area.

Diverse selection of beer. It’s not great beer but it’s not bad either. Great food in a great spot.
