Your Itinerary

Vermont Spirits Distilling Co

Our first stop of the day will be at Vermont Spirits Distillery (Vermont’s oldest craft distillery). This distillery offers a portfolio of award-winning artisanal spirits using local agriculture sourced from their partnerships with farmers around Vermont. Their small-batch Vermont Gold Vodka is made from 100% pure Vermont maple sap – an industry first – yielding perhaps the smoothest, purest vodka possible. Other spirits are: No 14 Bourbon finished with Pure Vermont Maple, Coppers American Gin, Coppers Sugarwood Gin and Coppers Barrel Gin – all crafting using organic botanicals and hand-pick wild Vermont juniper berries.

Quechee General Store - Cabot Station

You can’t come to Vermont without stopping at one of our country stores! Quechee General Store features the complete collection of Cabot cheeses, plus cheeses from other favorite Vermont artisans. It offers the area’s largest mix of maple syrups and delicious “farm stand” products from the area’s most beloved producers. Quechee General Store is proud to be the first independently owned Cabot affiliate store. We love their huge selection of amazing cheeses and other Vermont-made products!

Harpoon Brewery

Our next stop will be at the Harpoon Brewery where lunch is available for purchase on the premises. Harpoon was founded in 1986 and is an employee-owned brewery. Harpoon is best known for its Harpoon India Pale Ale. It brews multiple other year-round beers including the award-winning Dark, UFO Hefeweizen, UFO Raspberry Hefeweizen, and UFO White, UFO Light Force, UFO Maine Blueberry, and selected Clown Shoes beers. Harpoon also offers seasonal beers, including an Octoberfest Marzen style Ale and Harpoon Camp Wannamango. They also offer the ‘100 Barrel Series’, which consists of a number of one-of-a-kind batches. Beer samples are available for purchase.

SILO Distillery

Silo distillery is Vermont craft distillery, distilling small-batch spirits from Vermont-grown grain and local ingredients. Their process begins with grain selection from Grembowicz Farm in North Clarendon, Vermont. Everything at Silo is done, start to finish, in their barn distillery. Sustainability is also part of their process; recycling the water used throughout distillation, and sending spent grains to farmers to use for feed. We love their amazing barn with a real silo tower. The ambience is truly unique and makes for a great tasting experience.

Foley Brothers Brewing

* Foley Brothers Brewing in Quechee is part of the family-run Neshobe River Brewing Company. This microbrewery selects the finest ingredients and operates with diligent brewing techniques and excruciating attention to detail. They brew in small batches in their 15 barrel brewery and are always experimenting with new recipes. Foley Brothers has an “at-home” atmosphere that epitomizes the Vermont craft brewery scene. We love their IPA and fantastic selection of beer! *Foley Brothers is closed on Tuesdays. In its place, we will visit River Roost Brewery in White River Junction, VT Beer samples are available for purchase.

Long Trail Brewing Company

Our last stop of the day will be at Long Trail Brewing Company. Inspired by the 273-mile hiking trail that traverses through the Green Mountains, Long Trail Brewing Company has been a caretaker of Vermont craft beer since 1989. Moved and motivated by the local culture and surroundings, they work hard to create beers worthy of our Vermont roots. From small-batch recipes to their flagship Long Trail Ale and freshly formulated Trail Hopper IPA, Long Trail is committed to crafting a trail-worthy family of beers. Long trail is located right near a river, with a cozy bar seating area and super friendly staff. This day tour concludes by returning all customers to their original pick-up locations. Beer samples are available for purchase.

For six friends we had an awesome time with Natalia showing us where to go and learning more about Vermont and seeing beautiful color. This was our second day touring with Natalia and it was like having another friend along for the ride. Hope to get husband on Natalia's tours in the future.

Oh what fun! If you love crafts beers and spirits this tour is a must do. This day tour provides stops of the local breweries and distilleries. What a fun and delicious experience!!! Along the way she throws in a couple unexpected stops, like Blake Hill Preserves. Simply wonderful! Natalia makes the tour so fun and personal. This is a great addition to your vacation anytime you are visiting Vermont!!

Mark_S

Our guide was quite knowledgeable and helpfully engaged. Fully enjoyed our experience and the lengthy conversations we had both on spirits and the history of the communities we visited. A must do if when visiting the area!

Merry Lee M

Simply a wonderful way to see & taste so much of what Vermont has to offer: Natalia is an amazing ambassador. Her knowledge of Vermont & the details of the communities to which she brought us were the enrichment that we simply would not have had, even going to those same places on our own. It made it so special. It made the short drives between stops feel like more than just transit time. Natalia was responsive & adaptable, swapping in a couple stops based on what she heard from us both before the trip & on our day together. That made it so personal! Her time management skills seemed so effortless. We never felt rushed. Thank you, Natalia!

What a wonderful time. Natalia is such a fun and knowledgeable person. The tour is well done with information pertaining to the area and the establishment you’re visiting. Fun from start to finish.

My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary in Vermont where we honeymooned 40 years ago. We wanted a carefree relaxing day and the Brewery & Spirits Tour was enticing. We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Natalia. She was very knowledgeable about Vermont history and culture and we enjoyed her friendly conversation. Natalia has established connections at the local breweries and distilleries where we sampled some of Vermont's finest maple infused spirits. Natalia also included an unexpected quick tour of Dartmouth College and the campus was beautiful in full spring flower bloom. We highly endorse Natalia's tour.

CarolGB78

We had a wonderful time during our tour and Natalia was an excellent guide! She was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and flexible with the itinerary. We were very impressed with the variety of tour packages offered by Vermontology (we went on the Beer & Spirits tour, but there are also a variety of sightseeing tours as well). The transportation was very comfortable and we were picked up/dropped off right in front of our hotel. We strongly recommend Vermontology tours to anyone coming to Vermont!
