I was a little uncertain about how I would feel visiting the Pig for the first time after so many fond memories of The Alchemist brew pub. But as soon as I walked in I felt right at home. The interior has changed a lot, but the great service, beer, and patrons remain. I was impressed with the menu and thought the food complimented the beers well. Great draft selection, including Heady Topper and several Hill Farmstead and Lawson's Finest options. Half pours are available, which I love. If you love the old Alchemist frites, the current fries may dissapoint you, but the house-made sauces taste good on everything. The Pig is popular, so plan on waiting a bit for a table, but the staff is cool about taking your name and letting you walk over to the Blakcback Pub or The Reservoir for a quick drink. I just wish they would take your number too and just call your cell when your table is ready. Just sayin'. Overall, this is a must visit if you're in the area.

Stopped in for a late lunch after the Cabot/B&J tour double with the kids. Really nice atmosphere; ceiling-high stocked bar, rich dark interior without being dingy.
The food was simply outstanding; I had the GLT (Guinciale, lettuce and tomato) with a side of duck fat French fries. One of the most delicious sandwiches I can ever remember eating; my only complaint was that it was a little small, and I would have been happy eating two! My wife was similarly happy with a burger.
There's nothing else that can be said about the beer selection. My huge disappointment was that they were sold out of Heady Topper. The Hill Farmstead Citra that I had to settle for was outstanding; I only hope that I eventually get
to see what the fuss is all about with HT!
