I first visited Long Trail back in 1996 when I was visiting my girlfriend's family who own a ski cabin about 5 miles away. It was one of the first brewpubs I had visited. My girlfriend became my wife and over the years we would conclude each Saturday of skiing with a trip to Long Trail. I have seen it expand over the years and quit making some beers while adding others. My visits slowed down once my daughter was born, but now since she is 7 and has been skiing for 3 years our visits have become more frequent. I really like this place. The beer is consistenly fresh and good and the atmosphere is great. My daughter loves the free popcorn and I love the beer. The menu is limited, but the food is good and the prices are low. I would recommend the blackened chicken wrap with a bowl of cheddar ale soup. My only dissapointment is that they started bottling the brewmaster series with the Double IPA and Coffee Stout which used to only be available at the pub. However, if they start bottling the Imperial Stout, Imperial Porter, and Triple Bag everyone in the east is in for a treat. This is one of the best family brewpubs I have visited.

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.

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.
