This store features the atmosphere and products of nostalgia with items hard to find. Then, visit to Morse Farm Maple Sugarworks, an 8th generation family-owned Vermont maple syrup farm and gift shop. The Foliage Season is alive in their area, and the views of the autumn splendor from the Morse’s hillside are spectacular. Enjoy the crisp air and a real maple creemee. Then visit von Trap Brewery, take a tour of the brewery and enjoy flavorful, crisp lagers. Then, enjoy Lunch (Pre-Paid) at the von Trapp Bierhall. Over the course of many visits to Austria, Johannes von Trapp, the youngest son of Maria and the Baron, gained an appreciation for the crisp, clean Austrian lager beers. When the craft beer movement in the United States gained momentum in the early 1990s, there was a noticeable lack of focus on lagers. It’s not surprising, considering that lagers are more challenging to brew, take longer to mature, and are therefore more expensive to create. For two decades Johannes dreamed of building an Austrian-style brewery at the Trapp Family Lodge, and in 2010 that dream came to fruition. After, a nice stop at Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream and Factory, one of the happiest places in Vermont for a tour and hmmmmm…tasting of ice cream.
