Brewery Tour: Vermont and Aspen Colorado

Following the run at the Vermont 100, we decided to tour some of the state and see a few breweries. The following pictures are of Harpoon Brewing. This is one of their two brew facilities. Inside they have a great tasting room and pub. The outside has a great patio to enjoy your beer. We just had a sampler tray and if you enjoy a dry finish to your beer this is the place.


Up the road is Long Trail Brewing. This is another Vermont brewery at a great location on a stream. Once again we enjoyed a sampler tray and if you enjoy a dry finish this is your place.


(They even have a few chair to enjoy the stream)

When we decided to fly out for the race we had a choice of going back to Boston or staying an extra day in Vermont. Lucky for us Draft Magazine had an article brewery inns and the Norwich Inn was listed as location near our race. The inn was established in 1797 and it includes the Jasper Murdock Ales. On tap they had a red and an IPA both were great. Each had a smoother finish and you can not break the atmosphere.


The Aspen Brewery was a welcome site after our Four Passes Loop fast hike. It is located on Mill off the main street going through town. We arrived at 8:45 pm, just before closing and I asked if we are still OK to enjoy a few beers and Rory Douthit of Aspen Brewing was very nice and encouraged us to enjoy and not worry about the time. We had a sampler tray and enjoyed all their beers. That not being enough we finished the evening with a pair of IPAs. If you are ever in Aspen make the time to enjoy this Rocky Mountain destination!
