For beer enthusiasts that make their way to Waterbury due to its proximity to and convenient location as the center of the "IPA Highway," it doesn't get much better than the Prohibition Pig, given its long history with John Kimmich (if you call here after hours, the answering machine still courteously provides you with the number to the Alchemist Cannery) and the fact that you can find all three brews of the VT IPA trifecta here almost every day of the week, given that the day of the week is close to a Lawson's distribution day.

But for those of us that are IPA-impaired, much like my friends who didn't want to make the 400-mile ride up here with me; Prohibition Pig is probably "the spot" in Waterbury, VT -- come here on a weeknight and you will find yourself amazed with all the people that have all seemingly come out of nowhere, given the size of Waterbury, VT.

The people, however, show up for good reason -- as you may have surmised from the many reviews before this one, ProPig serves up some awesome barbecue, has a great selection of smoked meats, which includes a rotating charcuterie menu, and of course, everything and anything conducive as food worthy of pairing with some of the best beer to have graces this earth, all made and cooked up with ingredients from the Green Mountain State.

I came to ProPig for both dinner and Friday lunch, and it was easily the best meals I've had all week (at least on the American side of the border); my only regret is that not every town in the world has a Prohibition Pig of its own -- it could very well be the solution for world peace.

For those of you that are tl;dr:

-Heady Topper / Numerous Hill Farmstead / Whatever Sean Lawson brews and puts out that week is served here
-Great American fare with fresh Vermont ingredients
-Awesome barbecue

Do yourself a favor and make this a pit-stop after you're done standing in line at Hill Farmstead and are just irritated, tired, and hungry enough that you're willing to eat just about anything. You'll feel like a god among men for having eaten here.
