When I visited: Late May 2013. What I had: Shed Mountain Ale, Hill Farmstead Edward, Green Flash Hop Odyssey Black IPA, and Lawson’s Finest Spring Fever Session IPA on tap, Alchemist Heady Topper out of the can, Vermont Meatloaf Dinner, Pulled Pork Tacos and several Chimney Creek Sauvignon Blancs for the lady. What I liked: Outstanding draught list, beautiful dark wood bar, extremely friendly service (bartender even bought us a round), tasty fare, beer-infused food menu, welcoming patrons. An absolute first class beer bar and restaurant. What I disliked: On our second visit the place was so busy that we weren’t able to get seats, and the service suffered due to the craziness, but we still enjoyed our drinks. Would I go back? Definitely. Overall Rating: 88

Stopped in here twice over 4th of July weekend 2014 with Vinny and Keith. Typical sports bar/restuarant feel, except they have awesome beers on draft. Much like the other Waterbury spots, you can expect to find Hill Farm, Heady Topper and lawsons. They also stock gueuze available in bottles. Small outside area for eating and drinking. Pool table in the back.

After checking out the much more crowded Prohibition Pig next door, we decided to have dinner here on our way back from Burlington. The dining area consists of pub style tables, and the place was half full, I’d guess. I like the vibe; doesn’t hurt that they had the Red Sox game on. While there is a small bar in this section, they also have a large bar in another area if you are there just to drink. The beer menu is more than adequate with 35-40 drafts and quite a few bottles. I had a pint of Lawsons Knockout Blonde. Had I noticed the option to get a flight of five local brews for the same price sooner I would have done that. Great idea and excellent value. The food was very good; we didn’t order anything out of the box, but the homemade mac & chese, sweet potato fries, and chicken spinach wrap were all really well done. The wait staff was friendly and efficient. We had a nice time at this place and wouldn’t hesitate to go back if in the area again.

Nice restaurant and pub. Service was really good and friendly! 36-tap line including 18 Vermont beers (some HF and Lawson’s). Lot of "lesser" beer too (ie Stella Artois). Food was good (not as much as Prohibition Pig though, more familial). Price were good. Worth the detour!

Had some lunch and sampled some beers from their very fine taplist, which includes a few beers by Hill Farmstead and Founder’s, and many other local Vermont brewers. One of the several worthwhile pubs to hit if passing through Waterbury.

An excellent bar and restaurant. One section of the place is more restaurant-like, while the back area is the bar, including pool table. The beer range is awesome, with loads of stuff from Vermont. Prices are highly competitive and they offer flights for Vermont beers. The staff is attentive and friendly. The food is also very good. There are several great food/beer options in Waterbury, and this is one of them. Certainly worth a visit.

Local pub/restaurant with 36 taps. 2 HF taps and 1 Lawson’s and a decent selection of other stuff. The selection is not as highly concentrated as the Black Back or Prohibition Pig as far as the beer quality. It looked like some of the pours might be a touch larger than the other places meaning better value. I counted 13 Vermont brews on tap. I did not order food but it looked like traditional pub fare. Friendly and homey...some beers served in mason jars.

Nice digs, lots of taps, a bit "salty" as far as local clientele goes, decent bottle list. the beer is always changing. I’ve enjoyed myself here but there are lot of locals pretty drunk playing billiards

Not sure why I like this place so much. It’s nondescript with old wood floors, a small patio, a long bar which is partially hidden by a room length wall, and wood tables and chairs. But, there’s something charming about it. The food is a really good value and tasted great. Staff was very nice and the selection was excellent as well. Definitely would come back.
