I want to move to Waterbury VT perfect small town USA . The pig is a great spot to grab some unbelievable beers and some great Q .Having heard about this place the waitress coudnt bring the tap list fast enough (and she was lightning fast) . Once I put a Lawson's to my lips I was finally at ease, but carefully studied the jaw dropping list for the next ten minutes plotting my next few beers. Waitress was super fast and unbelievably attentive coudnt ask for better service!!! I had a brisket sandwich that was real good not very big and a little pricy considering it was a la cart. The group I was with split an order of wings that were phenomenal you can tell they use fresh locally sourced ingredients with quality in mind . I have been cooking barbeque for well over ten years ,and competing in bbq competitions the last 3 years so I'm a little bit of a "Q" snob not to mention ridiculously sick of eating barbeque , but enjoyed my meal very much . Three plus hours is a long ride for lunch but this place is well worth it

Stopped by after the Hill Farmstead bottle release and also hitting the Alchemist for some Heady Toppers!

Great bar and restaurant setup...a little small but cozy.

Waitress was quick to set us up and was very friendly.

Food menu was a little on the small side but the food that the group ordered all received great reviews. Beer list was very diverse and had many of the beers you would expect a VT bar to have.

I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice stop to have a quick bite to eat and enjoy a few excellent beers.

Stopped in on a Saturday afternoon around 5pm. Was able to quickly grab a few seats at the bar. nice, dimly lit bar area with a decent amount of tables behind the bar patrons. Quick and attentive service. Very nice selection with a bunch of VT beers on tap. Half servings available which is always a plus. Shared some wings, pretzel knots and hush puppies. All were very good though the wings were a tad dry. Still all in all a very positive experience. FYI-the flooding after Hurricane Irene left the water in the place up to the taps we were informed....amazing to think when you sit there. Well worth the trip, especially since you went to Alchemist and there was no Heddy Topper!! ;-)

Came here after dropping the family @ Ben & Jerry's factory.

Very nice rustic ambiance, cozy, a little small. Lots of breweriana including a Westy tray. Draft list is expansive, spanning different genres: Schlitz, He'brew, Evil Twin, Hopfenstark, etc... with loads of locals like Hill Farmstead, Fiddelhead, Von Trapp, and more. Prices are very reasonable for half and full pours. Didn't have any food but it did look delicious. Bartenders were very nice and attentive. Will be coming back here for sure and will probably bring the family next time!

Finally getting around to reviewing this onetime Alchemist brewery/brewpub which changed hands when tropical storm Irene wrecked the brewery in the basement in 2011. The Alchemist moved to a new bigger brewery/retail store north of town, which was our next destination after dinner.

The Pig was a main stop on our impromptu August 17th Great Craft Beer of New England Tour. There for an early dinner.

Fun storefront with potted and hanging plants and the logo on the big display windows, plus a high-mounted wonderful lifesize metal (?) pig with a huge butcher knife looming over his head. Smallish interior with around twenty tables and a bar seating maybe a dozen, if I recall correctly.

Had heard this place can be jammed during peak hours, but Saturday at 5 was apparently not quite in that category. We were quickly seated at one of several empty tables.

Beer selection was of course to die for. Heady Topper, two Lawson's including Double Sunshine, and two Hill Farmsteads including Edward. plus a lot of other great beers. I chose three eight ounce servings (I was driving and we had not planned to stay overnight). HT, DS and Lawson's Maple Wheat, the last because I thought my IPA-hating wife might like it,- and because I missed seeing Edward on there until we were about to leave LOL.

Food was ok, barbeque is a specialty but I thought the brisket was rather toughish and too dry, although adding some of their Southern sauce helped. The peel-and-eat jumbo shrimp platter which my wife ordered was excellent. And so were the Double Sunshine and Heady Topper!

Being able to try HT and DS after being totally shut out at three (later three more including the HT brewery store) stores which usually stock them this time of year was a real trip-saver. Thank you Pig People of Waterbury!

My wife, nine month old son and I walked in and were greeted and seated promptly. There was water on the table immediately as the the server asked if we would like to have a drink. The bottle menu is incredible; to the point where I wonder how "aged" the beers were that I could order.

The BBQ pork butt sandwich was perfect and messy. My wife enjoyed the veggie burger and was quite surprised to find that it had been made in-house. The duck fat fries are perfect.

I ordered the Allagash White along with my wife as it was on tap. For a second beer I ordered a bottle of Petrus Oud Bruin. It was brought to the table and I was expected to pour; not a problem but it took away from the service aspect.

Service was swift but lacking finesse. This is not a major issue just something to address as the years progress.

Incredible liquor bar available. HUGE selection there as well.

Just down the street is the Green Mountain Coffee visitor center and one of their roasting plants that gives tours. Awesome coffee. Manager is from Knoxville, TN and very nice to talk with about coffee.

Came in solo on a Wednesday evening for dinner and burs...

Lucked out on seat at the bar, as the place was still jumpin at 8pm.

Wait staff was busy, but not stressed. Good recommendations to me and others.

Food - dry rub wings were truly dry... But good and smoky. Had with a HF Edward. Got the Carolina BBQ sammy and it was phenomenal! I've been to Hickory, NC (and all over the Carolinas for that matter) and this ranks at/near the top - I believe it had a pickled-cabbage mixed in. Washed it down with an Allagash Confluence which was the absolute perfect pairing.

Unfortunately, the draft section this evening had no Lawson's, no Heady, and only 1 HF (Edward)... Which I personally didn't care that much about since I stopped at HF and Alchemist on the way here. (Heading to other places to find Lawson's later)

This place has something for everyone. Great (looking) house cocktails, awesome craft beer, terrific (and reasonably priced) food, solid service, and a top notch atmosphere.

Visited on 8/16/13 - in Vermont from New Jersey to get Heady Topper and other beers. Of course the brewery ran out before we got there. We fared better here and found a few Heady Topper cans later at a (offically licensed by the Alchemist) retail location we're not going to disclose.

A) We got in shortly after 11:30 and they had plenty of seats. Really filled up by 12:15 or so. Looked like a mixture of tourists and townies. Good, upbeat feeling on a nice day.

Q) Not entirely sure what this refers to, but the place is clean, everything appears to be locally-sourced and top-quality.

Service) The hostess and our waitress were great and nothing took overly long. Folks who were seated after noon did appear to be experiencing more than a bit of a wait. They may be a bit understaffed.

Selection) Food selection is great - about 8 appetizers, over a dozen sandwiches and other specials for lunch, 5-6 desserts. Menu is online and changes frequently. Libations selection is simply off the charts - they were out of a few on-tap beers, but the remaining selection is impressive and they had plenty of Heady Topper in cans. Plenty of local & international beers, wines, and spirits.

Food) Quite good. I had the GLT (guanciale, lettuce, & tomato) and duck fat fries, buddy had the pulled pork sandwich and duck fat fries. My sandwich tasted good but they put too much aioli on (less is more, guys) and it was turning into a bit of a soggy mess. Pulled pork sandwich and fries very good. The berry rhubarb crisp for dessert is excellent. The Heady Topper was my first taste of the brew and it's everything people say it is.

Value) As an Acela corridor guy, I found the prices to be great for what you're getting. Maybe they're high for the area, but I wouldn't know.

Four thumbs up for The Prohibition Pig.

2nd visit August 5, 2015

Got there right after 5 PM for dinner. They've grown with the brewery in back and their own beer on tap. Tried their Bantam DIPA and it's very good. Also had a Hill Farmstead and a Lawson's (we've gotten better at scoring Heady Topper cans and had no need for them). The small pours are a huge plus if you want to try a few things and get home safely.

Chopped Carolina BBQ plate is very good, collard greens were good, potato salad OK.

Upgraded ratings now having seen the place in action twice. Service is very good; I have yet to see evidence for complaints.

This is a must stop for dinner with an amazing beer local and overall craft beer list. I especially like the way they serve the beers; giving the choice for a cheaper and smaller taster if you're not sure. Food is excellent; service is solid and friendly. Great atmosphere and clean.

I really enjoyed this place. Great atmosphere, great service, awesome selection of local beers.

The tap list had heady, 4 HF brews, 5 Lawson's, and several other locals brews. I love the support of local brews, but could have one or two great non local brews to round it out. Maybe additional taps are needed to support the idea though.

I had the chopped pork sandwich and duck fat fries. Both were awesome, but the pepper infused vinegar was the winner for me. Went so well with a chinooker'd IPA from Lawson's.

Hats off to your establishment! I will be back.

Came here on 7/5/13 after learning that The Alchemist brewery ran out of Heady Topper (even though I was planning on going to Prohibition Pig regardless.)

Walked in around lunch time with my girlfriend. Walked though about 3/4s of the restaurant to the host table where we were greeted after about 30 seconds. A very nice woman told us that it would be a 10-15 minute wait. It was understandable because it was the Friday after a major holiday.

The scent of smoked woods flooded the establishment and smelled absolutely divine. While waiting, I figured I'd grab the beer menu and see what they had on tap so I could order myself and my lady something for the wait. I quickly skimmed and instantly saw Heady Topper. I decided to not look any further and got myself one. The girlfriend had me order here a half size of the Jack's Abby Leisure Time Lager. Had to pay at the bar before we were seated, so I did just that.

Upon being led to our seat by another nice young lady, we skimmed through the menus. I instantly gravitated to the BBQ beef brisket sandwich. My girlfriend had a tough time deciding so she asked the waitress her preference between 2 meals and the waitress recommended the turkey burger without second thought. We placed our order and while we were waiting for the waitress to come back to take that order I took a longer look at the draft list. BY FAR the best taplist I have ever seen in my life. I don't remember all, but they had Heady Topper, Double Sunshine, Allagash James Bean, Hill Farmstead Society & Solitude 5, Founders Imperial Stout, Maine Beer Co Peeper, Allagash Victor(ia) (not sure which), DFH Festina Peche, Jack's Abby Leisure Time Lager, & Hoponius Union. I've had a few of those, but I really could've ordered the whole damn list.

Anyways, I ordered a Double Sunshine to come out with my food. When the food did arrive, it was delivered on metal trays with deli paper or whatever it is. I got my brisket sandwich with the shoestring fries, which were a little different than I thought they would be. They were more like sticks, instead of the curly shoes strings that I'm used to. Regardless, the fries and the sandwich were absolutely awesome. Being a person who really likes BBQ food, I can see why some may not like the brisket. To me it was awesome. A juicy, tangy, smoky taste just erupted from my sandwich. My girlfriend also loved her turkey burger.

As for price, I got 2 full size beers, 2 half size and my girlfriend got 2 half sized beers. We also each got a lunch meal that was about 12-15 bucks. The total bill was probably around 40 bucks or so. I thought it was a great value, especially because of the 4 beers that I've been dying to try even before I walked through the door. Even reviewing the taplist now online, I know that I was incredibly fortunate to stroll in on the day I did.

To those who were disappointed about selection, I'd say definitely give this place another chance because they are definitely capable of having some heavy hitters on tap. Oh and as I said, if you're a BBQ lover then this place could become a new favorite place. I know that the next time I take the 4 hour drive to Vermont, Prohibition Pig is one of the must visit places for me.

Oh and BTW I definitely wrote too much. Take it for what it is, though.

This is a must-stop location when visiting Waterbury if you love BBQ. The beer selection is excellent and the food is even better.

Atmosphere is great - upscale and clean, a little different than the other spots in town. Servers are friendly and knowledgeable. The number of beers on tap isn't going to blow you away but the quality is excellent. When I was there, the taps featured the likes of Lawson's, Heady Topper, HF, Allagash and more. They also had good representation across different types of styles and some beers that paired well with the food, especially the smoked lager. Will definitely return here on my next trip to Waterbury.

Went here after stopping at The Alchemist. Anyways, this place was a bit disappointing. Tap selection was good. Food was a bit of a bust.
The Mrs. and I got duck fat fries for an appetizer which were certainly nothing special. I got the Sliced Beef Brisket, which was solid, but again, nothing special. The Mrs got the Chopped Pork BBQ. This was somewhere between bad and terrible. It was much too spicey, and spicey wasn't even noted on the menu for this item. The sides were "meh", but to be fair, I'm not sure how much you can do with hush puppies and potato salad to make them stand out.
For dessert, we got the Pain Perdu, which sort of saved the meal. This was the only standout part of the food.
Beer-wise, the selection is good and since I don't live in Vermont, many were new to me. I went with two Hill Farmstead beers which were both excellent. The taps really had a good variety of styles among them, which is nice to see.
Service was fine. Waitress was attentive but not overly so. Had our beers and food in a timely manner.
Anyways, I wouldn't bother with dinner here. Good for a snack and a few beers. Nothing more.

This place was a bit of a let down on my visit. The tap list was OK but not as good as the other two places in town and of course the Heady was kicked. They had 23 taps but couldn’t find anything that was particularly special so I grabbed an Edward to go with my Brisket sandwich and fries (pretty decent). I used the restroom before I left and when I came back (jacket still on my bar stool my beer was already taken away off the bar. Pretty lame service as the bar was quite empty...I took it as a sign though and decided that I really wasn’t up for reprimanding someone over my last few of ounces of Edward. Next time I will drop in though to give Prohibition Pig a second chance and I hope that it turns out better than this visit though the Blackback is really the place to be I think.

for some time now, I had been wanting to try this place. I had heard nothing but good reviews. Finally my wife and I ventured to waturbury and gave it a shot. Walked in, and it was very busy. The atmosphere was very welcoming. The beer selection was amazing. Though, they were sold out of the hill farmstead dipa. Big surprise. The service was ok.. our waitress was kind of rude, but nonetheless I didn't let it ruin my time. I ordered the pulled brisket sandwich. Delicious, absolutely delicious! The homade hot sauce they have there made it even better! My wife got the veggie burger and she was completely satisfied with it as well. I will be making a return to try the dinner menu.

I've been here twice now, once back February '13 and the next 5/24/13 and both times the food was great the beer selection decimates on the bars from jersey. Definitely awesome whiskey selection as well: George T Stagg, TH Handy and such. Both times we got a waitress that was a little snotty, but nothing that we aren't used to. Place is small, but it provides with a more 'intimate' atmosphere. Its good to know that they use local ingredients in their food and give props to such places on their menu. AND they make their own sauces... Will be back again...especially for duck fat fries.

Went there on a Sat. night around 7:30 with a group of 2 people. The wait for larger groups was >1 hr but somehow we were immediately seated. The beer and drink selection is phenomenal. I had the Hill Farmstead Abner and it was out of this world. The smoked brisket with the bacon BBQ sauce left me wanting more and they served up a huge portion. They had 4 at the table sauces to choose from none of which were labeled so I quickly sampled them all and found my favorite. They should definitely label them. They had a description of the 4 but it was impossible to tell which was which. I wanted to stay there all night and keep trying all the delicious beers but they are pricey $7 avg. If you want a sampling of the best beer in VT and some great smokehouse food then go here and you will not be sad.

I love the pig and stop whenever I'm in the area. The servers are very knowledgeable and their list is always loaded with my favorites from Hill Farmstead, Lawson's and Heady Topper. They also have one of the most extensive bottle list I have seen anywhere. The food is some of the best I have had at a any craft beer bar. The burgers and brisket are to amazing and their duck fat fries and donuts are to die for.
I miss the Alchemist but what a great replacement.

OK, here we go... I absolutely love the location, decor, beer selection and employees. They have offerings from my favs Hill Farmstead, Lawson's Finest and Alchemist. The food is dreadful. Let me preface this by saying how much I enjoy BBQ and have eaten it often at many locations. You look at the place and think you are going to get something special, it's not. The ingredients are clearly fresh and of good quality, its just so bland. The BBQ sauces they offer have little flavor and are marginally palatable. Baked beans have been the highlight of my 5-6 meals there. It's like they try to innovate food wise and it just doesn't work well.

That being said, they have super nice and cool employees, fun decor and great beer. I'll go back there many times and will inevitably eat the food again.

Housed in what was once the great - and much lamented - Alchemist, the Prohibition Pig is another venue to visit when in the charming (and beercentric) town of Waterbury, Vermont.

Located on the main street – and across from the Flyback Pub (See Review), the Pig combines savory local craft beer with succulent pig flesh – also local. While Alchemist was bright and airy, the Pig is dark and intimate, decorated with cranberry brick walls; it is, to say the least, very atmospheric. The bar is roomy enough, with enough veneer and polished wood to furnish several establishments.

Oh yes, they had Heady Topper on tap … nuff said.

I decided to go to the Pig for dinner on my first night in Waterbury. I will never turn down BBQ and they have an amazing tap list so it was a no brainer for me.

Upon entering the ambiance it pretty nice. Lots of people all over the place eating and chatting amongst themselves. I snagged the last seat at the bar and looked over the tap list, that is when I knew it was going to be a good night. They have some amazing things on tap and I was happy to see they offered half pours so I could try more of them. The quality was pretty high. My beers were good, as was my food.

Service was good. I never had to wait for a refill or to place my food order and the bartenders certainly knew there stuff. The selection of beers, as I said, was top notch. 4-5 Hill Farmsteads, 2 Lawson's and Heady Topper on tap. I would kill to have that selection at my neighborhood BBQ spot. As far as the food goes, I decided to go with the pulled brisket with a side of fries and baked beans. Beans and brisket were ok, I used some of their bacon BBQ sauce to make it better, and the fries were excellent with their smoked ketchup. Prices were a little high across the board. If they tried to charge what they do down here they would be out of business quick.

Overall a really nice beer bar with above average food, albeit a little overpriced. I will return when I am in the area.

Chad and the gang are all wonderful folks, and what a way to keep a iconic location .

Food - eastern Carolina bbq = Homerun! Great quality meat and local veggies. So, bring the wife or who ever, they'll still love the food even if beer isn't they're "thing."

24 taps of pure gold. This place must have a licence to print $$$.

Hill Farmstead, Heady Topper and Lawson's all in one location.

The wife and I stopped at Prohibition Pig after drinking some Heady Topper on tap at The Alchemist Cannery (they were out of cans, sadly).

Waterbury is a beautiful small town filled with quality bars and restaurants, and also a big flea market with lots of junk. The Pig is classy, reminds me of Armsby Abbey in Woosta, MA. A little small, though- a couple of big parties coming in for brunch and the place was getting crowded.

The regular menu is rather simple and porky. Lots of bbq plates, smoked-meat sandwiches, burgers and pork-based apps, plus some salads. We were there for brunch and they have a big chalkboard with lots of specials, all very brunch-y (eggs, sandwiches, sausage). The wife got a big breakfast sandwich with a fried egg on top that was realicious.

You're here for the beer anyways, and that's where it's at. 24 draughts with plenty of Vermont brews. Yes, Hill Farmstead and Lawson's are here. Hill Nor, Harlan, Edward and Abner plus Lawson's Knockout Blonde and Double Sunshine. Plus Heady!

Also Founders Porter, Arrogant Bastard, Stillwater Cellar Door, Farnum Hill Dooryard Cider, Sierra Torpedo, Lagunitas WTF....

Prices a bit high for small-town Vermont ($6.50-$7.50 for the goodies) but I like the half-glass option at half price plus 25 cents.

Service was slow because they were understaffed and the poor bartender just couldn't keep up. But the manager was apologetic, and we were understanding.

Try the cocktails, too. They are top notch. The Bloody Mary is gigantic and comes stabbed with a big celery plus a draft of Schlitz's.

A quality joint, but next time I'll be curious to try the Blackback Pub and The Reservoir instead.

Kitty corner to two other bars featuring several up and coming Vermont beers. The largest and most bar like of the three. I also have a soft place in my heart to the former site of L'Alchemist. The bar and layout retains some of that flavour. More than enough taps for me here, and the HF and Lawson Liquid offerings were great. A few other good taps. One of my favourites on the trip was the dry hopped Ruination. Service was mixed, its new, and staff may be calmer on a different shift or after the summer buzy period. Still a must stop even if you are in Burlington.
