We didn’t eat there so we arrived at the time the bar with the band took the place of the restaurant. Noisy and tavern style with pool table. Beer selection wasn’t that great but the price are good. Will come back to try the food.

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.

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.

Comments: This combines with Prohibition Pig and Blackback or whatever to combine a trifecta of beer bars within a 200 feet radius in the main square of Waterbury. Less expensive and less trendy than Prohibition Pig. Food looked good, but not crazy. Staff not as on their game. Tap list was excellent, but it was skewed from Hill Farmstead’s Anniversary Event.

Établissement visité le vendredi 28 février vers 22h30. Ambiance: Grand bar divisé en 2 salles. Billard et tv. Service: Sympathique et connaisseur. On a jasé un peu avec notre serveur. Sélection: 38 fûts de bière du Vermont et autres états américains ainsi que quelques bières européennes. On trouve aussi une trentaine de bière en bouteilles des mêmes endroits. (235e rating d’établissement).

Ambiance: Wide open space with lts of tables but very small bar, that held maybe 6 patrons at most Service: Decent although slightly lax on a slow night especially Selection: HF, Alchemist here too, same beers are others with one exception that caught me off guard, Bruery Humulus Lager....a solid find. Value: Pints were a little high here too, bottle even higher than expected or probably should have been

The Res doesn’t seem to be as popular as Prohibition Pig or Black Back with the locals, but it is still quite good. The food is tasty, but not as good as the Pig, but the menu is more diverse which is a plus. The taplist is usually bigger as well with a large sample of many Vermont breweries (including some that should be excluded in my opinion). I like this place a lot.

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

So many good beer bars in such a small town. This place is probably the least interesting of the three, but they are still great in overall standards. Like the others they were tapped out of HF, Heady Topper and Lawson’s. They didn’t really have anything interesting on tap. They concentrate on small Vermont brewers, and offer Vermont tasting flights with rules that you basically can’t pick anything good (ie no HF). It’s a good way to sample some of the lesser known Vermont offerings. Ambiance is just ok. Service is decent.

The draft beer selection is very good and has many locals and regionals The food is standard pub fare that is well prepared and promptly delivered.
