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.

Great bar. Great service. Friendly bartenders and pleasant hostesses. Beer list will guarantee Heady Topper, Hill Farms, Rock Art, now Prohibition house beers, Lawsons, lost nation and a stillwater or two. One of the best beer bars in the world in the corner of the pinnacle of the best trifecta of beer bars in the WORLD.

World class. The food is phenomenal, as is the beer selection. Lots of great Vermont beer. Great service, very professional and knowledgable. Pretty good prices considering the quality. Good ambiance, clean and stylish without being sterile or pretentious. If you are traveling through Waterbury and are hungry for a meal with good beer, this place is a must-visit.

Popular, first rate bar/brewpub/restaurant in downtown Waterbury. Service was friendly, and the selection was superb, with interesting in-house brews, and the area’s best IPAs fresh on tap. The food leaned a little towards gourmet/New American, but with lower prices than your typical destination restaurant. It is #1 on RB’s Vermont charts and it deserves to be.

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 :)

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.

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.
