Ski Pilgrimage to Vermont on the beer trail. Had to visit the prohibition pig.

Place was crowded at 7pm on a Friday night but managed to find two seats at the bar. First serving, heady topper. Delicious , citrus and pine hops, very smooth. Rest of the trip is icing on the cake. Ordered the duck fat fries and Pro Pig sandwich ground porK patty , shredded pork BBQ and cole slaw on a bun! Exceptional and recommended. Great BBQ sauces: vinegar, mild and. Habanero. My son had the Vermont crAft macaroni and cheese , excellent. Hill farmstead James, Everett and Edward. All very, very , very good. Everett my new favorite. Great food and beer, must visit

A must stop when in VT on a beercation - which I usually take twice a year. Within walking distance of several other great craft beer bars as well as the craft beer cellar. Superb BBQ - the sides are excellent as well. Amazing beer list with many options as well as their own brews - which are very tasty. I highly recommend their Vanilla Porter. Stop, grab a bite and a brew, then walk around to the other side - fill some crowlers to take home. I'm headed up next week and you can be sure I will spend some time here and across the street at the Blackback pub.

I've visited Pro Pig numerous times in my life living in Vermont, and have always enjoyed myself. I mainly go for the cocktails at this point, because A. They are amazing, and B. The selection of booze is absurd. The draft list has seemed to really shift towards featuring their in-house brews, which is totally understandable. They make a pretty decent beer, some are outstanding. However, sometimes you just want some other local Vermont beers. I feel like this review may sound harsh, but it is certainly not intended that way. This bar is superb. The selection is on point. It has turned into a destination spot for tourists and VT'ers alike, and for good reason!

Having been all around town looking for the best spot to grab a beer I would say the Pro Pig is my number one stop. It is a smaller venue so if you want to eat you have to get there early. The food is fantastic and they also have vegetarian and gluten free options along with some nice cuts of meat. The draft list is always packed with local favourites and they have a few lines with their own brews. The brewery is just out back and you can walk in and grab some growlers/crowlers.

Stopped in on Friday afternoon on the way up to Stowe, and after a visit to the Craft Beer Cellar across the street. Decent lunch crowd, looked like a wait for tables and the space is a cool old renovated building. Sat down at the bar and had great service from the bartenders. Tried both Sip of Sunshine on tap and Heady as well as some of the Pro Pig brews, a nice local selection....and 60s Schlitz. Ordered some apps which were delish. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.
