Long Trail Brewery

Description

Long Trail Brewery is located at 5520 US 4, Bridgewater Commons, Vermont. A gravel parking lot has 3 handicapped spaces. A stone entryway leads to the single door, street level entrance. Next there is a small entry area with two benches and another single door into the restaurant, bar and store area.

The indoor dining area has high tables and stools, low tables and benches and a large, full-height bar.

There is a small “saddle” at the door to the large, wooden, outdoor deck. Here you will find more tables and benches. Much of the deck is covered.

There are 7 steps down to the riverbank, where there are Adirondack chairs as well as tables and benches for dining.

One of our favorite stops when we are iin Killington is Long Trail Brewery.  Always a fun place for lunch or causal, early dinner (they only serve until 7:00).  I especially like Long Trail in the summer when the large, outdoor deck is open. If you can do steps, you can go down to the shore of the Ottauquechee River and relax in one of the Adirondack chairs. If they are serving you can even eat down there. “When the weather warms up, grab a seat on the deck or dip your toes in the water and go with the flow.” (website)  Most of the year we eat in the main dining area, with its large bar, high and low tables and benches. The atmosphere is lively and everyone is always pleasant!


When we arrived on our last visit we found a few changes. First is a new stone entryway and transition from the gravel parking lot (3 handicapped spaces) to the single door entryway. The two interesting, carved benches are still here in the foyer before going through the second door to the hostess desk and purchasing counter (if you want to buy beer or logo merchandize).


Access to the main dining area is easy.  The only downside is that there are no chairs, only tables and benches (picnic style), unless you are sitting at one of the high tables, or at the bar.  A single door with a small “saddle” leads to the outdoor deck.  By the way, much of the deck is covered for protection from both the sun and rain (as has often happened to us).


The other changes are new and improved multi-stall, handicapped-accessible restrooms with baby-changing stations.


Since 1989 Long Trail has become a Green Mountain Tradition that, we hope, continues to thrive.


As always we at Destination Accessible advise you to check a venue’s website, when planning http://www.longtrail.com, when planning a visit, to know before you go.
