Who We Are

The first batch of Long Trail Ale® rolled off the line in 1989. At the time, the craft brewing industry in America was on the rise and Vermont was better known for maple syrup than beer. When Long Trail Ale® hit the taps at local watering holes; it blazed the trail for Vermont’s craft brewing industry.

With the Mountain Brewers leading the pack, Long Trail Ale® slowly weaved its way into the Green Mountain landscape—becoming as much a Vermont tradition as the hiking trail itself. Commonly referred to as “the Long Trail guys,” we eventually changed our name.

This long hike through craft beer has been a journey through ups and downs, peaks and valleys. In 2022, we made the decision to merge the brand, and keep our roots with a fellow brand equally steeped in Vermont (as well as an employee owned company), Harpoon Brewery. We look forward to this next chapter in our adventure and are excited to continue hosting you at our Riverside Pub at Long Trail!
