The Long Trail Brewing Company began its mission to brew high quality craft beer in November of 1989. It’s humble beginning in the basement of the old Bridgewater Woolen Mill in the Green Mountains of Vermont, was soon outgrown. In 1995 the brewery packed up and “Hit the Trail” up the road to where they reside today.
Long Trail takes the words “Environmentally Conscious” very seriously. The company’s philosophy is rooted in their commitment to sustainable brewing practices and environmental stewardship. 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.
