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

Here's a list of Vermont breweries near Vermont ski resorts so you can work them into your plans this winter! Some offer tastings and food, some just tastings and beer sales, so check it out online before you go.

Of course, most local ski bars and restaurants pour local beers, so ask what Vermont beers are on tap!
