Long Trail Ale brewed by Long Trail Brewing in Bridgewater, VT


Long Trail Ale(1989) brewed by Long Trail Brewing Company in Bridgewater, Vermont

Long Trail Ale is a full-bodied amber ale modeled after the “Alt-biers” of Düsseldorf, Germany. Our top fermenting yeast and cold finishing temperature result in a complex, yet clean, full flavor. Originally introduced in November of 1989, Long Trail Ale beer quickly became, and remains, the largest selling craft-brew in Vermont. It is a multiple medal winner at the Great American Beer Festival. Brewed with Northern Brewer, Willamette and Mt. Hood hops and 2-Row, Wheat, Chocolate & Caramel malts. IBUs: 28. ABV: 4.6%


     

    
Beer Review by Beer Advocate
Refreshing, smooth, crisp, and clean. Nice amber color with a frothy head. Smells light and fresh makes me want to drink it. Really a pleasurable experience. Leaves a nice flavor in the mouth. Not to malty and just the right balance of hops. I keep coming back to this solidly brewed beer. This is one brew that Long Trail really has done well with. It is enjoyable year round and reminds me of some good times during college in Vermont. This a great beer and a good choice to use if you are introducing new people to the craft beer world.

Long Trail Brewing Company
The Long Trail Brewing Company began its mission to brew high quality craft beer in November 1989. A humble beginning in the basement of the old Bridgewater Woolen Mill along the Ottauquechee River in the Green Mountains of Vermont was soon outgrown so the brewery packed up and “Hit the Trail” up the road to a riverside hay field where they now reside.

Long Trail takes the words "Environmentally Conscious” very seriously. Appreciation for our surroundings and an understanding of the resource limitations of our local environment have inspired our company to consider ways to minimize the environmental impact our brewery has on our area. All spent grain and spent hops are fed to local dairy cattle as a valuable food supplement, steam from the brewing process is condensed into hot water and the thermal energy is used to heat water for the next brewing cycle saving up to 2,000 gallons of propane a month. By combining the very best ingredients available - like pure Vermont drinking water - and environmentally minded brewing processes with a genuine passion for brewing high quality craft beer, Long Trail proudly produces an extraordinary Family of Fine Ales.
