Great small bar in downtown Waterbury. The draft selection was great. They will do 1/2 pours if you ask. My brother and I went there after dinner at The Reservoir. It was game 6 of the World Series and the bartender, Eric I think, had his SF jersey on. I was rooting for KC. We had fun drinking the great VT beers and watching the game.
The place is small, but we got a seat at the bar on the right side of the building. It was a little weird looking since they expanded into the place next door. You almost feel like it is separate bars.
Definitely worth stopping here. All the people we met were very friendly.

Finally got into this place on my recent trip to Waterbury. Great beer selection, cool vibe. Want to check this place out on a cold winters night in February.

A-Visited on a Sunday afternoon for beers and a sandwich...place was fairly dead with a few people at the bar.

Q-beers were served in proper glassware

S-took a while to pour the beers as it seemed the bartender didn't have the taps set right. One beer that was served took at least 5 minutes to arrive from the time it was ordered. Beer was foaming into glass and bartender poured into another glass and finally serve an $8 dollar beer that was half beer and half foam. As she served it she said, "that's the best I could do"...she still charged full price despite recognizing the inferior pour. This was the first beer ordered and set the tone for the visit.

S-Beer selection was clearly written on a big chalkboard on the wall. Great selection of beers including Lawsons, Heady, and Hillstead.

F-ordered the Cuban sandwich tasted good but a bit slim. Not much meat in the sammy ...one slice of pork and one slice of ham

V-considering the service, the poor pours, and the size of the sandwich, there are better places nearby...that offer the same beers
