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.

The original Alchemist brewery location is a very nice place. Large draft selection with high quality Vermont beers and fantastic food. A must stop while in Waterbury!!!

Dig the vibe, the food, but mostly overall, the taplist. Gets packed quickly. Gotta hit this place when in the area.
