When I visited: Late May 2013.
What I had: Hopfenstark Greg American Foreign Harvest Stout, Hill Farmstead What Is Enlightenment?, Schlitz Gusto Classic 1960s Formula, and Lawson’s Finest Liquids Chinooker’d IPA on tap, Chopped Pork BBQ plate with collard greens and maple baked beans, Pit Smoked Chicken plate and multiple glasses of Evolucio Furmint for my better half.
What I liked: Redwood walls, dark ambiance, and candle-lit tables give the bar a cozy, cabin-like atmosphere, incredible draught list with many of Vermont’s best beers on offer, top notch barbecue (perfectly seasoned, huge smoke flavour, delicious sides), ample space between tables provides plenty of privacy, waiter and bartender were engaging, efficient, and made great recommendations, well laid-out beer menu, gorgeous, towering bar, cool t-shirts (I bought the charcoal grey one), even the patrons were friendly.
What I disliked: Nothing.
Would I go back? Without question. We had a very memorable experience here and will return any time we find ourselves in Vermont. I wish I could transplant this place to Toronto.

Housed in what was once the great - and much lamented - Alchemist, the Prohibition Pig is another venue to visit when in the charming (and beercentric) town of Waterbury, Vermont.
Located on the main street – and across from the Flyback Pub (See Review), the Pig combines savory local craft beer with succulent pig flesh – also local. While Alchemist was bright and airy, the Pig is dark and intimate, decorated with cranberry brick walls; it is, to say the least, very atmospheric. The bar is roomy enough, with enough veneer and polished wood to furnish several establishments.
Oh yes, they had Heady Topper on tap … nuff said.

This is a really great place...a must stop if in the area...and worth a detour if anywhere’s close. The selection of local and regional craftbeers is amazing...Lawson’s...Hill Farmstead...Fiddlehead...Trapp...Heady Topper (when available)...a great Belgium style from Mystic down in MA to name a few. Also, the food is fantastic. I had a great VT cheese board...duck fat fries...the Bahn Mi sandwich...and a side of maple baked beans...finished with some bourbon maple bacon ice cream! The bartenders were very entertaining...and informative. In case you didn’t know...this was the Alchemist brew pub before the 2011 flood. After that the Alchemist moved into new digs up the road and new owners took over this place. That’s likley why they are one of the few places with Heady Topper on draft (keg kicked just before I got there...darn! But I still had my precious cargo in my trunk...a case of 16 oz cans!). A visit to the Alchemist Brewery followed by food and beer tasting here at The Pig is the perfect one-two punch!

Awesome spot ! Lives up to it reputation with a laid back friendly staff. Great draft and bottle selections as well as an amazing liquor selection. The food was top notch and reasonably priced as well. Great setting and love the fact they offer half pours so you can try the various selections without breaking the bank or getting to hammered :)

I had heard a lot about this place and needed to check it out. Finally found a couple of Lawsons Finest beers on tap here, along with several HF and other tasty beers. They have a hundred or so bottles as well. The pulled pork was pretty damn awesome, and service was quite good. Half pours were $3 and fulls were $5, making them a hell of a deal.

This place feels like a Chicago bar. Big and open with a great tap line up. Food looked great, we only had a really good dessert. Drafts are available in multiple sizes and definitely some gems on the list overall. Definitely coming back here.

Stop in on Saturday February 16, 2013 for lunch and brews. The food was excellent. My sloppy Joe with Horseradish mayo and crispy onions was great. The hand cut French fries were fresh. All of the BBQ is made in house and comes from local farms. The service was excellent and everybody was friendly and polite. The staff here is very knowledgeable on the beer and know exactly what they are selling. I will return again.

Wide selection of Vermont’s excellent local offerings. Scratch barbecue menu offers the best food of Waterbury’s three craft beer bars and it is worth seeking out in its right. Refined, dark atmosphere also makes this the most versatile bar of the three, good for serious dining or bar drinking, especially because there is a partial partition between the two areas. This place represents the direction of Vermont’s first-rate, up and coming food and beer movement perfectly.

This is not the Alchemist so don’t come here expecting that, start with an open mind.
Prompt and freindly familiar servers. plenty of bar seats & nice stand up near the bar. Nice grouping of high tops in the back.
Outstanding draft and bottle list, featuring all of the premium local Vermont brands.
I love the food, southern comfort food.
This is our new go to place, nice job Chad.

Ive been here 3 times now and I can say its one of the best beer spots Ive been to. I attended a Hill Farmstead party last week and everything was great. The tap list was loaded with beers from near and far including HF Susan, Abner, Birth of Tragedy, Crooked Stave WWBI, CCB Zhukov, etc. Bottle list included affordable Cantillon Mamouche and many more. Also was able to try PVW 15 bourbon. The food is AMAZING just know that the weekend lunch menu if quite limited. Get the duck fat fries!!
