Long Trail is New England.

Nov 28, 2023


The first batch of Long Trail Ale® rolled off the line in 1989. At the time, the craft brewing industry in America was on the rise and Vermont was better known for its maple syrup than beer. When Long Trail Ale® hit the taps at local watering holes, it blazed the trail for Vermont’s craft brewing industry.


Long Trail Brewing Co. is located along the Ottauquechee River in Bridgewater Corners, Vermont, between Killington Ski Mountain and Woodstock. Now that the snow has started to fly, Long Trail transforms its outdoor seating along the river into the “Sugar Shed” seating, where you can enjoy a private shed on the patio with full table service. They have live music on Thursdays and Sundays and love welcoming people from all over! Long Trail is family and dog friendly and has an excellent atmosphere for après ski, pit stops on snowmobiles or just Vermont exploring! They are also collaborating with the Ski The East team again this year and will host an après party or two with them.


Did you know Long Trail is one of the OGs of après ski? They know that toasting after a day on the slopes is a universal part of ski culture — it doesn’t matter where in the world you are.  So, if you haven’t enjoyed a Long Trail Ale or Double Bag in a while, be sure to pick some up at your favorite local retailer.
