I visited twice and in any other town than Waterbury I would have visited many more times. It just so happens that Blackback pub across the street is one of my very favourite in the US and I need a very good reason to get out of there. Still, Reservoir has a very nice tap selection, the largest in town and the food menu seemed more than decent, but then again, I’ve always found it Worth waiting for 30+ minutes to have a seat at the Prohibition Pig perhaps mostly for nostalgic reasons. All in all though, I just never fell onto Reservoir with an atmosphere I identified myself to and the competition is so strong that in spite of its almost 40 taps, it felt like the weakest link. I’d like it a lot anywhere else, really for they carry a nice range of ales and seem to have Prima very frequently.

Close to Pig. Plenty of taps with special taster for Vermont beers to have. Service was good but Pig was notch higher. Solid spot.

Stopped in for supper on a very busy Friday night (HF anniversary weekend). Was quite impressed by the size of the bar and the number of beers available, lots of VT’s best with some good stuff from out of state as well. Food was good and quite reasonnably priced. We got really good service despite it being packed with people. Fun times, will probably return.

2013-04-26. Back bar was quite busy on our first so we opted to sit at the little side bar for a drink or two. Pretty impressive tap list, with lots of Vermont locals, with flights available. Not a ton of amazing beers but lots of good ones. We came back the next day and sat on the other larger side of the bar in the afternoon. Staff was friendly, decor is sort of non-descript but fine. Less swanky that it seemed from the website. Didn’t love the atmosphere as much as Blackback and Prohibition Pig but the large tap list more than made up for it. Solid bottle list as well, we finished off with a HF/Fantome 5 Sciences. Would come back.

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!

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.

In the list of places to go in Waterbury this is for sure is near the bottom. However, what is nice about this place is they do have sample flights of 4 brews. With about 30 taps and a few nice bottles if you are willing to pay the extra cost. The bartender was friendly and was on top of her game during peak hours on a Friday night. We didn’t eat anything so I can’t comment on the food. Waterbury isn’t very big so it is possible that I stop in here again on my next trip. It really could be a coin toss depending what Black Back or the Pig has on draft. They did have 1 Hill Farmstead and Lawsons Finest Toast on draft so… it is in the realm of possibility.

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.

The least impressive of Waterbury’s three top beer bars. The selection of VT micros is totally solid, and the kitchen takes a respectable shot at upscale bar food, occasionally succeeding. The atmosphere was sportsy and loud, and likely more friendly to a broader crowd than the other two places; furthermore, the service was friendly but painfully slow, demonstrating what seemed unfortunately to be a basic lack of concern and certainly very little beer awareness. I came here because there was a wait at Prohibition Pig, and unless something special was on tap (a definite to be the case at times), that’s the only circumstance under which I’d go back.

This was more restaurant than bar. Smaller bar upping the ante for the eatery. Yes, some very good local selections including just the one HF that day. Cannot compare to the Blackfly or the Probition P. within a two-minute walk, but if they have something left that the other places ran out of, then why not.
