I was a little uncertain about how I would feel visiting the Pig for the first time after so many fond memories of The Alchemist brew pub. But as soon as I walked in I felt right at home. The interior has changed a lot, but the great service, beer, and patrons remain. I was impressed with the menu and thought the food complimented the beers well. Great draft selection, including Heady Topper and several Hill Farmstead and Lawson's Finest options. Half pours are available, which I love. If you love the old Alchemist frites, the current fries may dissapoint you, but the house-made sauces taste good on everything. The Pig is popular, so plan on waiting a bit for a table, but the staff is cool about taking your name and letting you walk over to the Blakcback Pub or The Reservoir for a quick drink. I just wish they would take your number too and just call your cell when your table is ready. Just sayin'. Overall, this is a must visit if you're in the area.

This is a must if you're in the Waterbury area. The beer selection is incredible, and the food is gourmet bar fare. It's a little small especially for the crowds they draw, but I've thoroughly enjoyed both times I've been there.

This is a great overall spot. It has a classic wood and brick look to it. The beer and whiskey selection were excellent. Food as very good (their house made sauces were great). Our wait staff were prompt and quick.

This place seems to always be packed. But of the big 3 in Waterbury, I personally think it's the must stop. Solid beer selection, but because the high amount of people, it's just gonna be tough to mosey up to the bar and not be jostled. But I loved it and would recommend it to anyone.

Really nice bar with high quality accessible food service that appeals to a wide range of clientele. The taplist is impressive. It includes nearly anything you'd want to try from Vermont with a range of styles as well. The beer brewed on-site also ranges in style. A must stop in Waterbury. Crowlers are a steal of a deal here.
