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.

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.

Solid little place, plenty of their own beers on tap (quite good) as well as some heavier hitters from the area. Vibe is rustic and relaxed, people working there all nice.
Worth a drop in IMO.

A must stop when in VT on a beercation - which I usually take twice a year. Within walking distance of several other great craft beer bars as well as the craft beer cellar. Superb BBQ - the sides are excellent as well. Amazing beer list with many options as well as their own brews - which are very tasty. I highly recommend their Vanilla Porter. Stop, grab a bite and a brew, then walk around to the other side - fill some crowlers to take home. I'm headed up next week and you can be sure I will spend some time here and across the street at the Blackback pub.
