The Brewery at Trapp Family Lodge

Last week we went to a lovely wedding at the Trapp Family Lodge. (Last week being 2013) Upon arriving, we found out that there was a brewery on site! YES!! Being under a time crunch, we visited it during our late breakfast that Sunday morning. Besides being a working brewery, the site also is a Deli-Bakery, offering delicious croissants as well as sandwiches.


 Left to right: Trosten Bier, Dunkel Lager, Vienna Amber, Golden Helles

We ordered a flight, which was a sampling of their 4 beers-

Golden Helles:
Golden in color, crisp, easy drinking beer for all occasions.. Emphasis on malt flavors with a touch of hop to finish. Moderate alcohol content of 4.8% ABV

Vienna Amber:
An amber lager style that has all but disappeared over the last century. This soft, delicate beer has a touch more of a sweet finish than Helles. With a slightly higher alcohol level of 5%, this lager is still very drinkable. A subtle hop finish rounds out this delicious lager.

Dunkel Lager: 
Our darkest year round beer however, looks can be deceiving. Dunkel features notes of chocolate with a full malt back bone. Contrary to its dark color, this beer finishes crisp and clean with a round hop flavor. 5.4% ABV

Trosten Bier/Winter Lager – Seasonal:
Trosten Bier. Translates to “comfort beer” A black lager with notes of roast and smoke. Rich flavor up front that finishes smooth and clean. 5.4% ABV


My favorite was the Trosten Bier- just enough of a smokey flavor.


 This is well worth the trip to the Brewery at Trapp Family Lodge

    This does look like it’s worth the trip! What I really appreciate is that you visited (and had your beer flight) during late breakfast. Thanks for the likes and follow over at my blog – Oenophilogical. While I stick to wine on Oenophilogical, I enjoy a good beer now and again. Cheers!

    • Thanks! While trying to go to all of the wineries & breweries in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire & Vermont, we have to take what time we can to try & enjoy. I’m not sure if you enjoy cider as well, but I recently wrote about the Urban Farm Fermentory in Maine. Great cider, and not overly sweet. Will be adding some posts about other wineries we have visited soon!
