Anyone who reads this blog understands by now that we like to do “après.” Après-ski snacks and beverages are extra tasty after a cold day on the snow. Plus, you can do après and still get to bed at a reasonable hour. Bonus!

We particularly enjoy tasting beers from Vermont's famed breweries. The Green Mountain State now has a ridiculous amount of breweries — large to tiny in size. How spoiled we are!Long Trail Brewery in Vermont
