We ended up visiting the Reservoir three time on our three night stay in Waterbury. Twice to have a beer, and a third time to have a bite to eat. The tap list here is awesome.
On our first two visits we headed straight to the back bar and grabbed seats at the bar. We were served immediately both times even though it was a little busy. We had the Lawson's Triple Play, what else do you need. The bartenders were efficient and attentive. Gave us a taste of a couple of other local beers that we were considering. They offered food, and were right on our refills of beer. Asked for water, and got a nice mason jar that was kept full without asking. Love it!
On our last night, we had not tried the food yet, so we decided to go in and get a table. We got a cute little table upstairs in front of the window. Perfect. We ordered the cold meatloaf sandwich with a side of mac n cheese, and the poutine and another Lawson's. All the food was very good. The service was very good and friendly.
Would not miss going here on a future visit. Service, food, beer. Nothing lacking.

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.
