What can I say about the Pig that hasn't already been covered?

Small place, but I love the atmosphere. Well-decorated and appointed. Music plays in the background, but it's low enough to easily support conversation.

The quality of the beer is nonpareil. I've been twice, both on a weekend, and Heady Topper was on tap each time. Other VT breweries (HF, Lost Nation, et al) are featured as well. Schlitz seems to be a mainstay. Other US craft breweries make an appearance, as well (Stone, Ommegang, Stillwater, etc.).

Service is not particularly great, but it's not bad, either (at the bar; I can't speak for the tables). The bartenders are very knowledgeable about the local VT breweries, which is awesome.

Selection is not huge, but what they have is fantastic. It's not a small tap lineup, for the record; just not mind-bogglingly large. You will find something you like. My most recent trip, they had several IPAs/DIPAs, a DIPL, multiple sours/wilds, Belgians, at least two stouts, and more. Basically, all your bases were covered.

Food at the Pig is excellent, period. If you enjoy good barbecue (which is about the meat, not the sauce), you will probably not be disappointed. My only compliant is that portions are very, very small, and sides are typically extra. The food was enough at the time, but I found myself hungry again within an hour.

Prices are solid. Again, food portions are small, so the food is too pricey, but beer prices are very solid for the quality, and they offer half-pours of everything, which is absolutely awesome, especially if you're in the mood to try a bunch of beer without breaking the bank (or liver).

I was amazed to find that this establishment is actually quite new. It has the reputation and feel of an old veteran on the scene, and if you visit, you'll undoubtedly feel the same way. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Great food and great tap list. I like that you can order half pints to maximize trying a variety of the selection they have. Will recommend to friend and will happily go there again.

It has some of the best beers in the US. They have them all the time! They also make some really good beer. Food is very good and service is too. All this makes it perhaps the best beer bar I have been to.

Really diverse OT list here all the time. Food is great but portions are a bit on the small side.

My favorite restaurant in Vermont. Always an amazing beer list (including half pours). Their food is ridiculous - try the chopped pork with their north Carolina vinegar sauce.

Had pork rinds for the first time ever here - how did I not know about these?
