(I had reviewed this place a while ago, but that was a mistake--I had confused it with the Blackback).

This is a straight-up medium fancy New England eating establishment that happens to have excellent beer on tap. The vibe is warm and gorgeous and Caucasian, like nearly everything else in Waterbury. The cuisine is comfort food, and it is excellent: easily the best poutine I've had outside of Quebec, and fried chicken that rivaled the best of the Midwest.

Lots of taps, nearly all of which were New England. Three dedicated Hill Farmstead lines, as well.

My brother and I ate there on Tuesday, Oct 28, 2014. We were promptly seated. The service was a little slow all night. We didn't mind it except for when were waiting on beer refills. I ordered the burrito with chicken. It tasted good, but the chicken was fried. I am unsure if the menu said it was fried, but where I am from, that is not normal.
The beer selection was excellent. We did the VT beers flight. Lots to choose from. Just check their website for their tap list if you are looking for something specific.

The poutine was killer!!! Such a huge portion we couldn't finish. Had a Fiddlehead IPA to go wtih it, and my husband had Lawson's Sip of Sunshine. One of the biggest and best OT lineups I've seen anywhere. Staff is friendly and it's a place where I feel right at home, not pretentious and not over-the-top. My favorite place for a meal and a few brews in the area, hands down!

Oh, my. What can I say? They offer a flight of four 5-oz VT samplers. I picked Heady Topper, Lawson's Sip of Sunshine, Hill's Edward, and Zero Gravity Conehead. I wanted to spend the rest of my life there.

I don't even remember the food, but it musta been good too.
