And as the rain had let up, I walked on over, is all. It’s jammin’ this Monday evening, and I can see there’s only one seat left at the bar. It’s next to a girl who although she’s facing the other direction, can be only be Jen Schwertman. And she’s got a better road story than me, again (fucker!) Oh, you’re up here brewing, sure, yeah, nice...

You know, it looks surprisingly like the brewpub past. Telephone shaped bar, light laminated wood topped with a black trim, panel base, and foot box; seating for a baker’s dozen on highback chairs. The barback holds a pair of stainless steel bar towers side by side below a center window; each with a dozen taps on non-descript handles, although their actual handles are curiously mounted directly behind. Phat wood shelving on steel frame uprights to both sides, running up where the ladder slides for the high reachables. Booze, books, old bottles, jarred presumingly pickled things, barrels, the quintessential Westy case crate, drinking vessels, figurines.

Large logo piggy prohibition done up in the windows, brownie slat wood walls, 1” tile floorings along the bar, slat wood to the rear, and a black slat ceiling. Front vestibule split, and the dining side separated from the bar side by a bar counter on a solid divider. A pair of square hightop tables angled in the front corner, and twice that to the rear of the bar. On the dining side, 10 rectangular tables in 2 rows; 5 & 5, and a larger bowling lane table to the rear. A 4x6 ‘keep calm and drink whiskey’ blackboard piece up front with shirts displayed, cow, chicken, & pig drawings on the far wall, and light prints otherwise. Stained glass pint of crazy piece over the rear exit, barrels and crates above the bathroom ledgings. Wide cylinder lamps over the bar and some small drop spots. Glass candles on the bar, the tables, and the dividing sill.

2 dozen taps; a handful of local Vermont heroes (Zero Gravity Conehead IPA, Hill Farmstead Edward, Lawson’s Paradise Pale Ale, Lost Nation Gose), regional New England play (Jack’s Abby Smoke & Dagger, Hoponius Union India Pale Lager, Leisure Time Lager, & Jack’s Abby/Lawson’s Smoked Maple Lager, Mystic Table Beer, Smuttynose Old Brown Dog, Allagash White), craft beyond (Victory Swing Session Saison, Sixpoint Resin, DogFishHead Noble Rot & Festina Peche, Founders all Day IPA & Breakfast Stout, Lagunitas WTF, Sierra Nevada Summerfest & Torpedo), and then a single import (Hofbrau Original), retro (Schlitz 60’s Formula), root beer (Rookies Root Beer), and draft coffee (Stumptown Cold Brew Coffee). Drafts are served in ‘full’ (12 or 16oz, depending), or ‘half’ (of whatever full is). I did halves of Lost Nation Gose (does not suck), Mystic Table Beer (easy drinking saisoniness, wants to be Avril when it grows up), Jack’s Abbey Leisure Time Lager & Hoponius Union (where awesome is at), Lawson’s Paradise Pale Ale, & Zero Gravity Conehead IPA.

When I saw the chicken & biscuits go by, I knew they would be mine (oh, yes, they will be mine). A trio of little fried chickeny things on baby buttermilk biscuits with raw honey. They were made of good, I gone ‘et them. And this last time I had a kickin’ chicken pot pie, served with a killer biscuit.

Over 3 subsequent visits this year, I’ve taken in shortys of Alchemist Heady Topper (Yes, Heady Topper happens here on draft sometimes. It was the house, after all) & Ouroboros, Lawson’s Big Hoppy, Trapp Lodge Dunkel Lager & Trosten Bier, Zero Gravity Narconaut, Grassroots Legitimacy & Artic Saison, Lost Nation Petit Ardennes & Rustic Ale, Hill Farmstead Abner & Edward, Fiddlehead IPA, Mystic Lazy Jane, & Allagash Confluence.

Greeeat taps, plus 9 wines, and cocktails too. Jeff behind the bar. Where could I know him from? Zero Gravity, back in the day? Maybe, think so, don’t know. And the other server people know their game and deal it well. Still an excellent house, good eats, excellent drink, but makes me sad for the Wild Child days. Burlington or sleep? And where’s that damn hotel, anyway? (4,080 characters)

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. (1,671 characters)

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. (569 characters)

In the space that I'm told once housed the Alchemist Pub, is the Prohibition Pig, less than a stone's throw away from the Reservoir and the Blackback, and with a logo that I know I've seen on a bar elsewhere.

The place seems nice enough, with a medium-sized bar that seats about 10-15 people, and a dining section to accommodate a decent crowd. Speaking of which, the crowd seems typically pretty terrible here on a busy night, and this is seemingly the hot spot in town. Considering the beer list it's easy to understand, but it also majorly detracts from the atmosphere and accessibility. I usually have the patience to wait for a bar seat (though the wife doesn't :P), but when we visited on a busy night, bars seats really weren't happening for us, and with no one to greet us at the entrance, it was left ambiguous if it was possible to get on the list for a table or if we were supposed to seat ourselves. It's definitely much nicer here during less busy hours. Other than that, at least the bartenders are friendly and generally knowledgeable. As for atmosphere, the place is pretty polished, an indication of the prices, which were a bit on the high side, though nothing overly extraordinary. Beer selection was the high point, with good local selections, Heady Topper noticeably on tap in true tribute to the previous owner. Half-pour options are always a plus.

Food menu is largely unimpressive. First time visiting, I sampled two items: the wings were skimpy and bland, and the hushpuppies were dry and...bland. Other meals I've had since have been average to awful. I've actually--on more than one occasion now--seen patrons reject the food they were given, or walk out without eating it. To put it simply: the food here is just consistently bad.

My final word: call me cynical, but this place reeks of being the tourist trap of beer bars.

Worth a stop-in if you find yourself in town, I suppose, though this was easily my least favorite of the Waterbury trio, behind the Reservoir and Blackback. I'll take the laid back atmosphere of the Blackback over the hyperactive Pig any day of the week, and pound for pound, BB's selection is better. However, my preference is the Reservoir, because at least you can get a decent meal there. Essentially, everything I need I can get between the three bars. (2,314 characters)

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! (550 characters)

Stopped in here during a short Vermont beer road trip. The food was excellent, fried pimento cheese balls are great, very good burger and spectacular brisket. Reasonable prices too. Great tap list, they serve half pours, which really helps if you are looking to try everything you can. They only had two house beers on tap, but they were both quite good, in fact their session ipa was as good or better than anything I had from the much more famous breweries I visited earlier that day. (489 characters)

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. (638 characters)

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. (1,364 characters)

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. (645 characters)

this place is awesome, a longstanding local favorite and in the building that used to house the alchemist. it looks like they have upped their game from an epic tap list to a brewery, located in the building behind the restaurant right there in Waterbury. making something like ten barrels at a time, and doing it well. the brewery has a cool old farm house feel to it, with a big bar and some outdoor seating, and you can order the amazing food from the restaurant in there. the restaurant is an awesome building too, with a library ladder behind the bar, one of the best tap lists in the state, and some really great Vermont food, barbeque focused, but not exclusively. I had three of their beers while I was in, and all were very good. they are always busy, so its hard to get very personalized service, but everyone was nice and working hard. they had as many as eight of their own beers on, some creative and some straight forward. the vanilla bean porter was great, as was the brown ale. for the food and the guest taps alone I will be back, but their own brewery should not be overlooked, a great building with some very solid ales. make a point to check it out next time you are there. (1,193 characters)

Review is for back of the house brewpub.

Visited on a beautiful spring day. Log cabin/shed vibe inside, but it was too nice a day to sit inside. Fair amount of outside seating. About 12 or so taps with a mix of in house and guest. Only disappointment was the food. Ordered some of the snack items (pretzel knots and guac/chips) and it was well below average (funky pretzels, overly sweet mustard, bland guac, and chips that tasted like cardboard). I'll chalk that up to not ordering from the main menu.

Worth a return trip. (526 characters)

This place looks just like the old Alchemist, before they got flooded out. Kind of a long, narrow room. The bar and high tops are on the right, the dining area is on the left. Lots of wood, a black ceiling.

A huge beer selection. Over twenty beers on tap, and over one hundred bottles. It was difficult to choose. I stayed with the Vermont scene and had HF Citra pale ale and HF Everett (a phenomenal porter). My wife had a couple sour beers.

Not that much on the menu for vegans. If I was a carnivore, there seemed to be plenty of selections with a lot of BBQ. We had a veggie burger made from rice with arugula and a tomato confit, which was excellent.

We ate lunch there on a Saturday, and the place filled up fast. Still, we had excellent service.

Definitely worth a stop. (780 characters)

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!! ;-) (688 characters)

One of the trifecta of great beer bars in Waterbury. A must stop.

They do beer well here, but it's not the only thing. They have a killer cocktail menu, as well as some good down home BBQ. The food is a bit expensive, but not crazy.

The tap list is very nice- not quite as big as The Reservoir, but about the same size as Blackback. They always have Heady on tap, as well as some choice HF and other Vermont goodies. They had a 2011 Stone IRS on tap when I went, had to try that.

A good, almost industrial atmosphere. Service was good, but not great- they didn't really stop to chat with us much, unlike the Blackback.

Worth a stop for sure. (645 characters)

enjoyed the visit. food was good, pretty solid selection on tap and a nice place but the service (at the bar) was poor. had a bartender that was a little rude...i get that she probably gets annoyed of tourists coming to the bar and asking about heady, HF, Lawsons, etc. but my wife and i generally get along swimmingly with just about every server/bartender we meet and had just left the Rez where the bartender was super friendly and we loved chatting with her... (466 characters)

A must stop, especially because you're probably stopping at Craft Beer Cellar across the street anyway. Had the carnitas tacos and they were off the hook. Really friendly service. Both beer brewed in house, as well as others on tap (including Lawsons and Hill Farmstead). Need to stop in here if you're doing a VT beer visit for sure (or even if you're not). (358 characters)

I was excited to try the Prohibition Pig, and I'm glad I did, but I left missing the old Alchemist, as I had expected to.

The Alchemist exuded a homey, laid-back, neighborhood vibe. Dim and packed, it was a great place to spend an evening on the (sadly only) two occasions I visited. The Prohibition Pig is considerably more refined. The space is more open and sparser. It's not quite airy, an adjective I reserve for sparse spaces that I enjoy, but feels a bit empty and over-lighted. It's not bad, but compared to the old space, it's a let down. I especially disliked the new light fixtures, which reminded me a bit of the new ones that replaced the old lights I loved so well at the CBC. The blasting music didn't help the vibe, either.

Beer selection was good, and I was glad to see all beers offered in full or half-pints. They had recently had some Hopfenstark takeover, so more than half the menu consisted of their beers. Visiting the Green Mountain State, though, I was looking for some Vermont beers, of which there were plenty of solid options.

The food was excellent, though the portions were fairly small for the price. My pork burger--a special on the board--was unbelievably good, but for $9 I'd like it to come with a side. Oh well, my friend and I split an order of sweet potato fries. While similarly undersized, they were quite good.

Where the Prohibition Pig falters, though, is on the service. We sat at the bar and had a server who I recalled from the Alchemist. He spent most of his time trying to impress the woman sitting next to us, was very slow to get our drinks or food or offer us the check, and seemed to think he was very funny despite being a jackass. He referred to another server as Kenny, whose name I recognize from some of the Alchemist/Prohibition Pig threads. When our server was too busy being full of himself to help us, Kenny came over and was extremely helpful and friendly. Next time I'm in, I'll make sure to sit at his end of the bar.

The Prohibition Pig is a nice enough place, and I have no doubt that I'll be back, but unlike the Alchemist, it's not a place I'd go out of my way for. Something special seems to have been lost. (2,181 characters)

This was probably my tenth time to the pig and it gets better every time. While spending a week in waitsfield on a family vacation we stopped by for lunch. I started off lunch with a lost nation oktoberfest which was probably the best I have had of the style. Another great brewery out of Vermont kicking out some great beers. Back to lunch...I had the brisket sandwich which was excellent and the service couldn't have been better. My family and I worked our way through the taps for the remainder of the afternoon and had a blast. The pig is a must if you are in the waterbury area. (584 characters)

Love spending time drinking all the Hill and Lawson's you can imagine as well as Pro Pig beers and all sorts of other great VT and North East offerings. Amazing cocktails and super friendly staff also make this a great spot to spend your entire day. (314 characters)

monkeybutler was pretty much spot on with his review It's a new and improved version of the Alchemist, less John's beers.

The biggest plus for the Prohibition Pig is something that made The Alchemist the place that we all loved, THE STAFF. Since the staff is primarly Alchemist veterans you feel right at home immediately.

Even if you are not a devotee of beer, wine and spirits, you have got to come here for the southern cooking! I loved the smoke wings and hush puppies and our table had a little bit of everything on the menu and loved it all.

This place is a destination, not just a stop on the tour. (609 characters)

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. (1,866 characters)

Had dinner here while visiting VT. on vacation. Love the location, Waterbury is a cute little town. The atmosphere inside the restaurant is upscale rustic and comfortable except for the noise. The noise from the bar which isn't separate from the dining room was horrible. Quality of experience was great except for the noise. Service was friendly and reasonably fast. Beer selection was a solid 4. My son had a list of four beers he wanted to try while in VT. and he found two of them at this brewery. My husband had a Prohibition Pale Ale and he loved it. The food was exceptionally good, I had the chopped pork sandwich and it was delicious as was the brisket sandwich. Both could have been a little bigger. My son had a special lamb dish that he really enjoyed. I also ordered a side of Maple baked beans and they were fantastic. My only complaint was the lack of a sweet BBQ sauce. They had three sauces and all were very spicy and not sweet. The maple sauce in the beans would make a great sweet bbq sauce. We would return here. (1,033 characters)

Pretty renowned Vermont landmark. The food is absolutely outstanding and the tap list is pretty impressive. The brewery is attached to the restaurant in a separate space. Great staff, quick service. Growler and crowler fills available. (235 characters)
