My favorite of the Waterbury bars. This place as big and lively. The beer menu is outstanding, with all of the big names you come to the area looking to try. I met several very friendly bartenders and customers here. If you want an active spot in the town, this is your place.

Went here on night one of our two night stay at the Old Stagecoach Inn. Despite being Saturday night the place wasn't particularly crowded, perhaps because of the September tourist lull between summer and leaf season. Fantastic tap list of course - Hill Farmstead, Lawsons, and a host of other Vermont selections, but we loved the food as well. The poutine in particular was awesome, as was the salmon. We went to Prohibition Pig the next night which was wonderful as well, but overall we preferred Reservoir as Pig was crowded with spotty service.

Arrived for VT beer and coincidentally the 5 year anniversary for Hill Farmstead and their tap takeover. It was heaven. Would easily drive there again solely for beer and a hotel room from philly.
