von Trapp Brewing

You don’t have to leave Trapp Family Lodge to enjoy great, homemade beer. Stop into our Bierhall to try all that our onsite brewery, von Trapp Brewing, has to offer during your stay!

It was more than a decade ago when Johannes von Trapp started thinking about starting a brewery at his family’s lodge in Stowe, Vermont. He had a dream to brew an American version of lagers he enjoyed while traveling to the countryside near his ancestral Austrian home.

With this dream in mind, Johannes worked to start a brewery at Trapp Family Lodge. It became a reality in the spring of 2010, when von Trapp Brewery officially opened. Our brewery was originally a modest facility located in the lower level of the Lodge’s Kaffehaus. In 2015 we opened our new 30,000 sq. ft. brewery located on Luce Hill Rd. featuring a Rolec Brew House and capable of producing up to 36,000 barrels of beer annually.  You can enjoy our beers at the Lodge or in multiple restaurants and bars throughout Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Maine, Rhode Island, New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.

Brewery tours are included with your resort fee and are Tuesdays 6pm & Saturdays 1pm. You may purchase tickets below for a brewery tour. Tours do sell out!

Slayton Pasture Cabin

If you plan on going cross-country skiing or snowshoeing during your stay with us, be sure to make your way to Slayton Pasture Cabin to replenish your energy. From the ski center, it’s a 3-mile journey to this gem nestled in the woods on a knoll behind the Lodge. 

The journey to Slayton Pasture Cabin may be long, but it’s worth it. The cabin is currently open 7 days a week.

This rustic and cozy log cabin is the perfect private rendezvous spot for lunch with family and friends. Take a seat by the hearth of our roaring fireplace and savor some homemade soups and sandwiches.
