Beer

Do you fill growlers?

We’re happy to fill any growlers—branded or not— with our fresh-from-the-source brews. 

Cleanliness is right next to tastiness, so we use an extensive cleaning process to ensure our beer reaches your glass with all the flavors and aromas our brewers intend. 

For that reason, Long Trail reserves the right to not fill any vessel that appears to contain dust, dirt or any other outside particles that might affect the enjoyment of our beer. 

PLEASE NOTE THAT LONG TRAIL CANNOT 

Clean your bottle for you before filling 

Fill a bottle deemed by our staff to be unsanitary, at the risk of contaminating our beer 

Fill a bottle deemed by our staff to be damaged or broken

I didn't see any distribution in (insert state here), can you ship some beer to me?

Unfortunately we're not allowed to ship our beers. We do ship soft goods and glassware through our gift shop, so you can hit the trail in style! 

Does your beer contain wheat?

We use malted wheat in several of our brews including Long Trail Ale, Double Bag, Triple Bag, Trail Hopper IPA, Summer Ale and Blackbeary Wheat.

How do I know when my beer was packaged?

We label every bottle and 12-pack with the date it was packaged. On the bottle, yellow laser ink is printed onto the bottle neck. On the 12-pack, the date is printed on top of the box. 

What's the shelf-life of your beer?

All our beer is best enjoyed as fresh as possible. Hop flavor and aroma, for example, gradually fades over time and the experience is altered as a result. That's why we code our beers with the date they were packaged. As a rule, we have a 120 day shelf-life policy that we use with our retailers to ensure only the freshest product is stocked and available.

Some of our bigger brews like Triple Bag, Barrel Aged Triple Bag and others can be cellared like wine and will age gracefully as flavors mellow and develop.

On the flipside, hoppy beers like VT IPA, Vermont DIPA and Over the Handlebars should be consumed as fresh as possible (within 90 days).
