I had, hands down, the best veggie burger I've ever had here. Wow, it was so good. They have an amazing beer selection. They had Lawson's Sunshine IPA on tap! Unreal. That beer seriously competes with Heady Topper. This place is heaven on earth. So good.

The Reservoir is 1/3 of the reason why I wished I live in Waterbury. If their amazing beer selection (including the VT trifecta of Alchemist, Hill Farmstead, and Lawson's Finest Liquids on tap) isn't enough to chide you over, the fact that all the ingredients used in this establishment are fresh and bought locally from farmers and merchants in the Green Mountain State should be able to assuage any non-beer enthusiast to this restaurant as well.

I ordered the Shed Burger and asked my server how else I could make my burger a little more Vermontoise. She then pointed out that despite the fact that they have a burger named the 1/2lb Vermont Burger, the Shed Burger is probably as VT as it gets: The beef is from grass-fed Vermont-raised cows, which is flavored with Shed Brewing Company's Mountain Ale; sitting atop the beef patty is molten cheddar cheese from Cabot Creamery down the street; the leaf lettuce, onion, and pickles are all local-farm produced and picked; the English Muffin was apparently the way this burger was originally served by the chef at Shed Brewing Co.'s Brewpub (also made locally); and to top it off, she told me I could even go a step further and add Vermont Smoke & Cure Bacon for good measure.

I am proud to say that I have tasted Vermont at the Reservoir and it is delicious. The slogan on their website says it all -- Fresh Eats, Craft Beer. If eating an affordable world-class meal paired with some of the best brews America has to offer is your thing, then the Reservoir will definitely not disappoint. If good food and good beer isn't quite your thing, then you might as well go jump off a cliff because it appears that you hate life.
