*NEW* Pilot Brew System
Our New Year's resolution is continued innovation.

Pictured is Long Trail's brand new, ultra-top secret, pilot brewing test facility! Hidden somewhere in Bridgewater Corners, VT, it has thus far only been viewed by google's satellites. The Pilot System will empower our brewers to further push the boundaries of creativity. Our brewers are hoping to begin testing the system by next week!  
Brown Bag Pilot Series
Batch #2 Bavarian Smoked Brown - On tap now!

A deeply malty brown ale featuring Cherrywood smoked Pale Malt, the toasty, malty flavors of brown malt, and balanced with Bravo and Mt Hood hops for a very traditional Northern Bavarian smoked beer. The beer is a deliberately malty product, with a firmly biscuity, toasty aroma that well carries that smoke imparted from the malt. A fantastic accompaniment with smoked meats, fish or cheese, this beer is a wonderful Winter elixir on its own. A treat for the aficionado of classic styles, this product will have very limited distribution. Get it while you can! IBU: 31 ABV: 5.4%


We encourage our customers to give us their feedback by logging on to our website and becoming "Test Pilots". Test Pilots will receive insider updates on the latests brews, invites to exclusive events and free swag. Learn more here 

A quick note on the Gift of Life Marathon in Rutland, VT the final count was 1,954 pints, just 14 short of the national record set by Manchester, N.H. They missed the record by 7/10ths of 1 percent. Thank you to all who came to support the marathon! 

We hope to see you here at the brewery sometime soon. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us on Facebook, Twitter or at ltales@longtrail.com.
