The Vermont Brewery Tourey, offered through the Fullerton Inn in Chester, Vermont, has been a fan favorite for a number of years now. With packages available from March to November every season, the ‘Tourey’ embarks on one, two and three day tours for a tour of up to five Vermont breweries and breweries each day.
On the second leg of the ‘Tourey,’ the bus leaves Chester late morning for Morrisville, VT. Here we take a tour of the Rock Art brewery. Brewing beer with very eclectic flavors and tastes, they offer what is among the largest variety on our stops. With nearly 20 beers on tap, including fan favorites such as their Ridge Runner, Whitetail and Double IPA, you will learn all about the intricacies and nuances that go into crafting each flavor as you taste and learn.
Next on the tour is Stowe, VT for a visit to the Trapp Family Lodge. Given our route takes us to this brewery around mid-day, we grab lunch here to complement their vast beer selection. Priding themselves as a “mountain lodge in the European tradition,” their brewery selection isn’t too shabby either. The Trapp Lager Brewery features four year round brews and three seasonal rotations, ensuring flavorful, enjoyable experience, every time.
After lunch we high tail it over to the Alchemist Pub and Brewery in Waterbury, VT. Hop seekers rejoice and behold the hoppiest IPA on the tour! Specializing in fresh, unfiltered IPAs, if you are seeking a bold and robust flavor, you have come to the right place. You could sample the world renowned Heady Topper IPA, so delicious it has its own cult following. Sorry though- no tours of the Brewery at the Alchemist Pub.
The last stop on our tour, but certainly not least, is the world famous Long Trail Brewery. With 16 delicious flavors total, four of which are seasonal, Long Trail beer has an option for even the most discriminating of tastes… and even for the not so discriminating.
Dates for the one, two and three tours are March 20, 21, & 22, April 24, 25, & 26, May 22, 23 & 24 & 25, June 26, 27 & 28, July 24, 25, & 26, August 21, 22 & 23 and September 11, 12, & 13, October 23, 24 & 25, and November 13, 14, & 15. Prices vary based on how many tour days you partake in. These packages are also available with dinner and Fullerton Inn hotel packages.
