von Trapp Brewing, Stowe

Brewery · Hidden Gem · Food & Drink
Our bier is brewed on the grounds of Trapp

Family Lodge in Stowe, Vermont,

this lager is crafted with the finest

traditional ingredients and our pure

Vermont spring water.

Inspired by the quality brewing

heritage of his ancestral homeland of

Austria, Johannes von Trapp has built a

world class brewery on the grounds of his family’s lodge in the pristine mountains of Stowe, Vermont. Using traditional Austrian brewing techniques, our master brewer

creates pure, clean beer with amazingly

complex flavor profiles.

Of course, everyone

says they use the finest ingredients and so

do we, but few can say they use their own natural resources. We do. You can taste the difference. This beer is brewed on the grounds of the Trapp Family Lodge, using pure Vermont spring water from right here on our own property.

  • Never been to this place in the many times we've come to VT....wanted to try the beer. Glad we came. Flights at 4 x 4oz. for $8....delicious beer. Tried the Helles, Dunkel, Bavarian Pilsner and Maple....  more »
  • We love this brewery! It’s a MUST stop for us every time we travel to VT. The environment is laid back and the scenery is beautiful. The beer is excellent!  more »
  • The Oktoberfest is very good. I recommend getting a flight so you can sample all of their various brews (4 for $7). The food menu is extensive, but you can't go wrong with the pretzels with beer cheese. This brewery is huge and would be able to accommodate a large party quite easily! The grounds are beautiful and well kept. Parking is free and they have EV chargers.
  • My husband told me good things about this place so we decided to try it for dinner. The food was delicious. I loved the chicken schnitzel and my husband enjoyed his bratwurst sandwich. My son ate a lot of his mac & cheese and fries plus milk. I wish I had made room for dessert. This place is kid friendly since I saw other families with small children. There was a grassy area near the outdoor seating where you could play corn hole or go explore the pond nearby. It's a place I'd like to visit again.
  • On vacation stopped in. Great atmosphere, bartender was very busy but still found time to help us. Pretzel and beer cheese he recommended was outstanding. Beer was excellent. We will be back.
  • Really nice setting at top of mountain. Has some nice outdoor tables and bean bag toss looking out into the mountain meadow. We had to sit inside as it was raining during our visit. Has a hunting lodge vibe. Menu is pretty standard German fare. Beer mostly underwhelming lager varieties. Our server was pretty grumpy in her demeanor and the place was pretty empty when we visited. Meal ended up being our most expensive of the trip to Stowe, and while the food was fine, it was also our least favorite meal to eat. So overall, again, not a bad place, but I would not consider it a good value when there are so many awesome places to eat in the area.
  • Oktoberfest was good but the pretzel fell way short. It was extremely hard like it had been sitting out all day. For the price I was expecting an amazing pretzel but was terribly disappointed.
