Ski Pilgrimage to Vermont on the beer trail. Had to visit the prohibition pig.

Place was crowded at 7pm on a Friday night but managed to find two seats at the bar. First serving, heady topper. Delicious , citrus and pine hops, very smooth. Rest of the trip is icing on the cake. Ordered the duck fat fries and Pro Pig sandwich ground porK patty , shredded pork BBQ and cole slaw on a bun! Exceptional and recommended. Great BBQ sauces: vinegar, mild and. Habanero. My son had the Vermont crAft macaroni and cheese , excellent. Hill farmstead James, Everett and Edward. All very, very , very good. Everett my new favorite. Great food and beer, must visit

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.

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.
