Craft Brew of the Month

The BRU Crew loves Craft Brews. Say it 5 times fast an read about this month’s BRU featured brews from Long Trail here!
It may or may not come as a surprise that many of us here at WBRU are Craft Brew enthusiasts. Staff-wide, this varies from those of us who seek out small breweries all over the country to those of us who simply like to look extra cool when ordering at the bar (y’all have seen this, right?). Whatever your preference, WBRU has decided to start sharing some of our favorites with you month after month. But let’s be honest. We’re mostly psyched on the monthly tastings we’ll get to host all over Southern New England. And you should be too. Check out August’s picks from Vermont brewery, Long Trail below!

LONG TRAIL ALE
ABV: 5.0%
Available: YEAR ROUND
Bitterness: 28 IBU
Color: Amber

First brewed in 1989, Long Trail Ale is a full-bodied amber ale brewed with our top fermenting house yeast that yields a complex clean flavor.

In 25 short years, this flagship brew has weaved its way into the Vermont landscape and become as much a Green Mountain tradition as the 272 miles of the Long Trail itself. Plenty has changed since the first batch rolled off the line, but one thing remains constant, Long Trail Ale’s presence at ski hills cookouts and get-togethers all over the East Coast.

 

 

 

LONG TRAIL DOUBLE BAG 
ABV: 7.2%
Availability: Year Round
Bitterness: 39 IBU
Color: Dark Amber

This double altbier features a distinct malt presence balanced by a subtle hop backbone that delivers a smooth, complex drinking experience. At 7.2 percent alcohol by volume, this is one brew worth milking.

 

LONG TRAIL INDIA PALE ALE
ABV: 6.0%
Availability: Year Round
Bitterness: 48 IBU
Color: Vibrant Gold

Introduced in 2005 under their Brewmaster Series label, Long Trail IPA has endured the test of time just like the first IPAs survived the long voyage from England to India.

Their take on the traditional English IPA – they’ve combined the style that endured the voyage to India with the hops that started the American craft beer revolution. This unfiltered offering is fit for any journey, land or sea.
