Bridgewater Corners, VT — Last week we enjoyed Old Man Winter’s return to the north country. Despite a packed schedule around the brewery, the Long Trail Adventure Team (LTAT) scored some fresh turns at Stowe Mountain Resort and Suicide Six.
If you’re not familiar with the LTAT and its mission, check out this post on our Trail Notes blog. Share your adventures with us using the #LTAdventureTeam tag and keep in touch as we check off a few more resorts before this winter melts away.
If you were lucky enough to hit the slopes last week, you’ll agree the fresh powder was worth the wait. Along the same lines, we’re stoked for the arrival of Limbo IPA in 16 ounce cans. Is there a better excuse to rediscover this juicy American IPA than the release of trail-friendly cans?
Full of the tropical fruit flavors of Galaxy and Mosaic hops, the new vessels reveal more pronounced aromas and tons of character; definitely worth the wait. Meanwhile, as we wait for longer, brighter days to arrive, we’re celebrating the revival of Stand Out American pale ale (5.2% ABV, 42 IBU).
A renewal of our long-retired, fan favorite pale ale, Stand Out features a toasty and caramel malt profile and pronounced citrus and herbal hop notes.
This seasonal offering was first introduced in 2015 and features heaps of Equinox hops, a relatively new variety renowned for its complex flavor profile, which includes notes of orange peel, pine and fresh peppers. Now available on draught and in six-packs, 12-packs and in Survival Packs where Long Trail is sold.
Seek it out, crack one open and enjoy the peak experiences and stand out moments!
Speaking of peak experiences, we’re hosting our friends from the Green Mountain Club for their 21st annual Winter Trails Day on Saturday, March 4th at our brewery in Bridgewater Corners.
This family-friendly event features guided snowshoe hikes, winter skills clinics, s’mores and much more! More details available here. If you can’t hit the trail with us on March 4th, check out our Don’t Fear the Ripper retro ski party at the Brewster River Pubin Jeffersonville, Vermont, on March 4th. We’ll be sipping some Long Trail Ale retro cans and showing off our best day-glow, throwback ski outfits as we celebrate the ski season, keeping our fingers crossed for some late-season snow before biking season begins.
If you’ve already traded your snow dance for bike pants, registration is open for our annual Century Ride to Benefit Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports. Pedal and party with us on Saturday, June 24th, 2017.
Either way, check out our Events Page for an LT event near you and remember: Whatever trail you choose, make sure it’s a Long Trail.
