Very nice atmosphere, a touch fancier up front in the restaurant area. Back bar has lots of tv’s, pool table, and a more casual atmosphere. Always a strong selection and the food is really nice.

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

Seems to be the bar with the most space, of the big three, drafts are always similar and great, for was good and actually got more for your buck.

Visited on a Wednesday. Part of the Waterbury triangle. Very close to Prohibition Pig and Black Back Pub. Street parking only, but not really an issue. Inside they have a long bar and a short bar to sit at. My wife and I were the only ones here for our visit, so we went for the short bar at the front. They have house brewed beers, plus a lengthy list of guest taps. You can do flights here of anything, but some beers will add to the cost of the flight. I had a couple flights. Service was great and very helpful. Definitely stop in here if you are in Waterbury.

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!

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.

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.
