Long Trail Brewing Company

Long Trail Brewing Company is an American craft brewery located in Bridgewater Corners, Vermont. The company was started in 1989 by Andy Pherson, and it first began in the basement of a mill. Just a few years later the company had grown enough to move into a full brewing facility, and today it's one of the largest craft breweries in America. The Long Trail is a hiking trail that runs the entire length of Vermont.

Long Trail Brewing Company is still run by Andy Pherson, and he's also still the brewmaster. In 2009 the company acquired Otter Creek Brewing, which was another large craft brewery in Vermont. Today the visitor's center at Long Trail Brewing is considered to be a great place to visit, and one of its highlights is a deck that overlooks the Ottaquechee River. While almost half of the beer by Long Trail Brewing Company stays in Vermont, it distributes to several other states in New England, including New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The brewing company features a score of 88 on Beer Advocate. Long Trail also offers tours of its breweries and strives to be eco-friendly in its brewing and operations. Attached to the visitor's center is a brewpub that's opened daily, and the brewery prides itself in offering fantastic beer and food pairings. The company website also offers ideas for pairing their beers with various foods, such as suggesting eating fried foods with their IPA.

Long Trail features English-style ales, and their flagship beer is Long Trail Ale. The brewery features several beers year round, some of which include the Long Tail Ale, Blackberry Wheat and Double Bag.
