Hit this place up after the suggestion of bobv.

It took a little bit to find this place .. based on my GPS, they essentially have the same address as the wine bar that on the same corner but upstairs. Finally found it..what an odd little set up. Extended bar and almost nothing but bar that's square (though the back is against the wall). You can definitely tell where the extension was put in - it almost seems like two seperate places. All wooden bar, roughly three crammed tables that are underneath a blackboard at the far end listing their food and beer offerings. Nice selection of local beers - plenty of Lawson and Hill Farmstead which is exactly what I was looking for!
We went in hungry and ready to eat and drink... however, not a great food selection. Pizza, calzone and sushi. I don't like sushi, and the size of the bar..wasn't all that condusive to grabbing a pizza and such.
Bartender was pretty on top of things and seemed pleasant enough. We didn't spend much time interacting but our order was taken and served promptly.
The prices here are extremely high and based on the food selection, not worth it for the food. The beer is steep in price based on the pour size, however what they offering somewhat makes up for it.
My partner and I stayed for a drink, and then walked across the street to grab food. This is a place for sitting and drinking - so hit somewhere else first for food, but get there relatively early as there isn't much space and seems like it could fill up quickly. (1,506 characters)

Had a great lunch here this weekend. With 4 kids, it was no problem to sit at the bar area. Owner was our waitress/bartender. Great beer list, great food and very friendly. Would go back here in a second. Need to with the great VT beers offered. (245 characters)

Really cool spot in downtown Waterbury. Draft list is second to none and staff was friendly, attentive, and knowledgable. Nice spot to sit back relax and enjoy some world class beer with friends. Highly recommend! (213 characters)

Great place. The bar staff is always happy, helpful, and able to share their knowledge about their beer and the VT area.

Beer selection is top notch, vibe is easy going and relaxing. (184 characters)

By far my favorite bar in Waterbury. Always putting on the best of the best as far as VT beers and the staff is always a joy to hang out with. Everyone in this place is super friendly and they know what they are talking about. Love this place. (243 characters)

Awesome service. Had some 8 or so Hill Farrmstead beers on tap, as well as Lawsons and other local stuff. Neat small little place. Definitely worth a stop in. Had the maple bacon cheesecake and it was delish. (208 characters)
