    European-style cuisine featured in our three restaurants -- The Dining Room, The Lounge, and The DeliBakery -- each with its own distinct character. Seasonal menus to reflect both Austrian and Vermont traditions. Weekly wine tastings, jazz pianist & harpist performing nightly. Reservations requested.

    More than a decade ago Johannes von Trapp started thinking about brewing his own beer, for guests of the resort. His dream was to produce an American version of the tasty Lager he has enjoyed over the years on his trips to the countryside near his ancestral Austrian home.

    Johannes’ dream became reality in the Spring of 2010, with the opening of the Trapp Family Brewery. The modest facility (60,000 or so gallons a year) is located in the lower level of the DeliBakery (formerly the Austrian Tea Room), where draughts of the heavenly concoction will be available year round.

    von Trapp Brewery

    1333 Luce Hill Rd Stowe, VT 05672

    Get directions to this place »

    The idea for an on-site brewery began “brewing” in Johannes von Trapp’s mind more than a decade ago. His dream was to produce an American version of the tasty Lager he had enjoyed over the years on his trips to the countryside near his ancestral Austrian home, to serve to guests of the resort. Johannes' dream became a reality in the spring of 2010, with the opening of von Trapp Brewing.

    You can enjoy the beers from von Trapp Brewing at the nearby von Trapp Brewing Bierhall Restaurant. Located on the grounds of Trapp Family Lodge, the Bierhall is conveniently situated on the cross-county ski and mountain bike trails. It's a gathering place for friends to enjoy “a little of Austria, a lot of Vermont,” serving fresh lager beers and a selection of freshly prepared Austrian lunch and dinner selections.
