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.
