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-

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.
