This is a small beer bar. There is no bad beer, no average beer, no switchback sam adams long trail or the like. They had Allagash Curieux Dogfishead Immort Aventinus Hill Farmstead Edward IPA the new Vermont brewery from Greensboro VT Sierra’s Fritz and Ken Anniversary Stout Stoudt’s Karnival Kolsch Stone IPA and other awesome beers on tap. The place is small but is loaded with cool atmosphere, old stone foundation walls and old ceiling beams. The owner bartends and guides flyfishermen on the side. The food is charcuterie and Vermont cheeses, he does an outstanding ripe camembert and prosciutto sandwich on local bread. Great little beer bar with wonderful atmosphere

Visited on a Wednesday afternoon shortly after they opened. They started with a decent crowd of about 15 and stayed steady during my visit. This is in downtown Waterbury, so be ready for street parking. It’s right across the street from both Prohibition Pig and the Reservoir, as well as a few other great bars. The beer they had on tap was excellent, and the service was very good. They do only full and half pours, so no flights. You can try something before you buy, though. Prices were in line with the area. A must stop place when in Waterbury.

Visited February 2016. Cozy small place with very impressive fresh local beers on tap. Had also some food. Service was good. Hidden gem. I like this kind of small intimate places.

Cool feeling bar, with some food. Drafts are local and usually pretty cool. As long as you have your personal space I enjoy hanging here.

This place is quite small, but it’s a really cool little pub. The bar itself is sort of a step or two down from street level and feels very...intimate. A little bit dark, brick exterior, and some bare brick inside. Pretty much crammed with as many seats as would reasonably fit inside this place.

Found a couple seats at the bar. Draft list is both printed and written on the wall. We had a couple Hill Farmstead beers as well as the obligatory Heady Topper can. Plenty of nice Vermont beers on tap and, in particular, a lot of Hill Farmstead stuff on during our visit like Table Dorothy, Nordic Saison, and a number of hoppy offerings. Nice!

Service was really quick and friendly. Ordered an appetizer (crab cakes, as requested by the other half) and they were solid as well.

If you’re looking for a huge, amazing beer list as a visitor, this place maybe isn’t the best bet. But, it’s a really solid place to sit and relax and drink a few beers. Would definitely be a regular if I lived around here.

One of the amazing members of the Waterbury Craftbeer Quadrumvirate (along with Prohibition Pig, Pro Pig Brewery, and The Reservoir). A favorite of mine when in town...cool vibes (small place so you may not get in when busy), great staff, and really fantastic food. Best of all...always great beers on tap...especially the cream of the northern Vermont crop.

Stopped by this place after the Probibition Pig and that might’ve been the only mistake. It paled by comparison on this evening. The bar itself is small and quaint and I dig it. That being said, it is really compact. The server didn’t really say a whole lot, and we had to flag him down to get our checks after a 15 minute absence. The two list wasn’t terrible, but a couple of the beers that were on their chalkboard and list on paper, but they’d kicked and no one said anything until asked and there were t any replacements in the wings. We didn’t stick around for food. The beer was reasonably priced for sure. Overall this wasn’t a good backup to the Pig on this day.

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.
