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.

Their restaurant is in the front, their brewery is in the back, both of which serve all of their beers and food. Stellar place with spectacular BBQ, they make their own sauces. I've never had bad service for all of the times I've been there and it's been a numerous amount of times. I've never had a bad beer here, but there have been some average. For the most part, their beers are actually very good. They also get guest taps of HF, Lawson's, Frost and Fiddlehead (so when you have those 4 as guest taps), you really can't go wrong with this place.

The overall quality is fantastic. The beer list includes other brewers beer including Hill Farmstead and Schlitz. Epic. The Mexican food is authentic and hand made from scratch right in front of you. This review is for the brewery our back and nite the restaurant up font. Bring your bank account though. Beer prices are steep especially since you are in the brewery.

GREAT place for great selection of their own beers and a fine list of beers from other breweries, locals and out of state. Food was better than I'd expected and they have a fun menus. Absolutely will go back when I'm 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.
