Visited on a late Friday afternoon back in mid-July 2011 and sat out on the back patio. Outside patio was packed but remained comfortable with sturdy (non-wobbly) patio tables, chairs, and umbrellas. Atmosphere was slightly diminished by a loud and obnoxious group sitting directly beside us, but still was enjoyable.
Quite an extensive tap list with a lot of Vermont offerings (notables include Hill Farmstead and Trapp), alongside some Stone, Dogfish Head, and Allagash. A solid tap list, but if you're looking for rarities you probably wouldn't be satisfied here.
Service was quite good despite how busy it was on the patio. Quite friendly staff from our experience, and we were taken care of well. For food we had the Vermont burger and chicken sandwich and both were tasty and certainly above-average for pub food. Prices seemed fair and reasonable for food and beverage (including the Vermont Sampler: 20oz for $6).
I'd recommend this place for a relatively inexpensive lunch, and a pretty good tap list to accompany it.

Another of the trifecta of great beer bars in Waterbury.
Great food, typical bar food with good twists. Had an awesome burger- when paired with Double Sunshine, I was in heaven for about 15 minutes.
The tap list is unreal, all of the typical Vermont goodies, plus a ton of other great international and US craft selections. You can't come in and not find something that'll make you happy.
The service was great, very friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable bartender.
Gets a bit crowded at times- the front part is the restaurant and is nice, but there's a divey back section to the bar that can get a little crowded, especially since were there a little bit past happy hour time.
Worth the stop a million times over.

Amazing selection of beers both on tap and bottles. Litteraly something for everyone (except the Bud fans maybe)! Seriously, I was tempted to go through the style guidelines only to try and see what they didn't have. Everything from double IPAs to sours. And quite a few sours at that (gueze, flanders red, oud bruin and even gose)! Our waitress was extremely helpful and knowledgable on the beers. Food was good. Not as outstanding as the beers, but good. The beer menu was the big draw for me.
