A rather excellent pub and restaurant right in the heart of Waterbury. The beer selection is great, with a strong emphasis on local VT breweries. The food is also very good. The bar itself is fairly homey. Friendly service. Decent prices. If you find yourself in Waterbury, it can be hard to pick between Blackback, the Reservoir and Prohibition Pig. I would have a hard time picking one over the other - they are all excellent - so I would recommend staying in the area to visit each one.

Vibe for a Tuesday is spectacular = great selection of music beating down wonderful smells coming from the kitchen and luring me to want some food from the menu. Beers were Foundation’s Afterglow, Lawson’s Red Spruce Bitter, Fiddlehead ’ s Amarillo Faber, HF’s James, and Zero Gravity ’ s Narconaut. Hot damn, what a selection and that was just what I wanted. My bacon and sweet corn macaroni was absolutely stellar. Think I wanna come back here, hell yeah, I am.

Nice small place. Crowd quite different than from what I would have expected. People are much older than I would have thought. Seems like they are usual clients that meet up at this place after their ski ride. The waitress was really kind unlike other places I’ve visited in Vermont. The service was quite fast considering there was only one waitress and she seemed to know the beer, which isn’t always the case in other brew pubs. The beer selection was quite good, lots of Hill Farmstead, Heady Topper, Focal Banger, SOS, etc. They have wifi on site which is nice since for some reason my Roam Mobility sim card wouldn’t give me LTE / 4G signal. Visited this place on January 15 and will sure go back in the near future. Pretty close other bars as well like Propig.

Visited on January 15th with my friend Stoned99. The place is really small i’m mean REALLY. Most of ther offering is on tap and the selection is top notch. Most of the selection is from Vermont and includes beers from Hill Farmstead, Lawson’s, The Alchemist, Idletyme, Almanac, Fiddlehead to name a few. We hit the place 2 times on that day @ 4 pm and later around 9 pm. On the first time place was crowded with what seems local on the second hit place was half empty and crowded with tourists or beergeeks like us. Service is by far superior of any other Vermont establishment I visited. Your glass won’t remain empty to long without being ask if you want something else, a good thing if your on a beer crawl like us on that day. Food is bistro / gastro pub we only ate the regular nacho plate it was good but the chipotle sour cream was maybe a little to hot for me and could derange your palate when in a middle of a beer session. I would visit this place nested in this beer vibrant town no doubt. I like to try beers at is freshes point and draft is the best way to go in that manner.

Called here a couple of times to drink and once to eat, during a stay in Waterbury. Solid, fast changing beer list. Plenty of HF. Half pours available. The food I had (chicken pot pie) was good. The missus’ veggie mac and cheese was very bland. Service was good, if a little over familiar for a reserved Brit like me! Undoubtedly a good bar, but overall I did prefer others.

With 7 different HF beer on draught, nex two 2 LF (Session #2 and SoS) and cans of Heady AND FOCAL BANGER, this place was DA BOMB. We enjoyed it so much. This place is your local go to pub, with tons of amazing (D)IPA’s... Loved it!!

Visited 7-10 and four other times on my trip. By far our favorite pub and was only .5 miles from the hotel. My friends and I all treated ourselves to our first Focal Banger upon arriving in town. The service was excellent and each time we were there we had a different bartender. Normally, you’d think service would vary, but not at all. Each one was superb and constantly checking on us, even when it was busy. Tons of draft beer selections and over all the visits I had every Hill Farmstead and Lawson’s on the list. Food was decent, nothing over the top. My favorite thing by far was the lobster roll special. Value and price was pretty good and we left happy each time. I’d probably go here over any other place in Waterbury given the choice. Just such a cool, chill atmosphere with an amazing selection.

Tiny little historic wooden pub in cute Waterbury. You’d never guess such a tiny little historic wooden pub would have such a stellar beer selection. The quantity wasn’t outrageous, but the quality was. Two from Alchemist, maybe 7 from Hill Farmstead, plus additional Hill Farmstead collaborations. I did not get to spend enough time here. I’ll have to arrange another trip to Waterbury. Came back on another trip. Another stellar selection of beers. Largely IPAs, largely from Vermont. Just had one tasty IPA after another.

Awesome service. Had some 8 or so Hill Farrmstead beers on tap, as well as Lawsons and other local stuff. Neat small little place. Definitely worth a stop in. Had the maple bacon cheesecake and it was delish.

Yet another great pub in Waterbury. Like elsewhere expect to find an impressive range of VT beer on tap and in bottle/cans. It’s a nice and relaxed ambiance and the owner introduced himself and chatted away to make you feel even more at home here. Unfortunately I did not have time to stay for a meal but I’ve heard the food is very good. Next time! Another must visit when in town.

Great spot in the middle of Waterbury. Small space with a real well curated selection of local and import beers. Service awesome and food was great.
