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 “Hit the Trail” up the road to a riverside hay field where we now reside in a state-of-the-art, environmentally friendly brewery.
In 25 short years, we've weaved our way into the Vermont landscape and become as much a Green Mountain tradition as the Long Trail itself. A lot has changed since the first batch of Long Trail Ale rolled off the line at the original Mountain Brewers brewery—including our name—but one thing remains constant; Long Trail's presence at ski hills, cookouts and get-togethers all over the East Coast.
