Came in solo on a Wednesday evening for dinner and burs...
Lucked out on seat at the bar, as the place was still jumpin at 8pm.
Wait staff was busy, but not stressed. Good recommendations to me and others.
Food - dry rub wings were truly dry... But good and smoky. Had with a HF Edward. Got the Carolina BBQ sammy and it was phenomenal! I've been to Hickory, NC (and all over the Carolinas for that matter) and this ranks at/near the top - I believe it had a pickled-cabbage mixed in. Washed it down with an Allagash Confluence which was the absolute perfect pairing.
Unfortunately, the draft section this evening had no Lawson's, no Heady, and only 1 HF (Edward)... Which I personally didn't care that much about since I stopped at HF and Alchemist on the way here. (Heading to other places to find Lawson's later)
This place has something for everyone. Great (looking) house cocktails, awesome craft beer, terrific (and reasonably priced) food, solid service, and a top notch atmosphere.

Visited on 8/16/13 - in Vermont from New Jersey to get Heady Topper and other beers. Of course the brewery ran out before we got there. We fared better here and found a few Heady Topper cans later at a (offically licensed by the Alchemist) retail location we're not going to disclose.
A) We got in shortly after 11:30 and they had plenty of seats. Really filled up by 12:15 or so. Looked like a mixture of tourists and townies. Good, upbeat feeling on a nice day.
Q) Not entirely sure what this refers to, but the place is clean, everything appears to be locally-sourced and top-quality.
Service) The hostess and our waitress were great and nothing took overly long. Folks who were seated after noon did appear to be experiencing more than a bit of a wait. They may be a bit understaffed.
Selection) Food selection is great - about 8 appetizers, over a dozen sandwiches and other specials for lunch, 5-6 desserts. Menu is online and changes frequently. Libations selection is simply off the charts - they were out of a few on-tap beers, but the remaining selection is impressive and they had plenty of Heady Topper in cans. Plenty of local & international beers, wines, and spirits.
Food) Quite good. I had the GLT (guanciale, lettuce, & tomato) and duck fat fries, buddy had the pulled pork sandwich and duck fat fries. My sandwich tasted good but they put too much aioli on (less is more, guys) and it was turning into a bit of a soggy mess. Pulled pork sandwich and fries very good. The berry rhubarb crisp for dessert is excellent. The Heady Topper was my first taste of the brew and it's everything people say it is.
Value) As an Acela corridor guy, I found the prices to be great for what you're getting. Maybe they're high for the area, but I wouldn't know.
Four thumbs up for The Prohibition Pig.

This is a must stop for dinner with an amazing beer local and overall craft beer list. I especially like the way they serve the beers; giving the choice for a cheaper and smaller taster if you're not sure. Food is excellent; service is solid and friendly. Great atmosphere and clean.

I really enjoyed this place. Great atmosphere, great service, awesome selection of local beers.
The tap list had heady, 4 HF brews, 5 Lawson's, and several other locals brews. I love the support of local brews, but could have one or two great non local brews to round it out. Maybe additional taps are needed to support the idea though.
I had the chopped pork sandwich and duck fat fries. Both were awesome, but the pepper infused vinegar was the winner for me. Went so well with a chinooker'd IPA from Lawson's.
Hats off to your establishment! I will be back.

Came here on 7/5/13 after learning that The Alchemist brewery ran out of Heady Topper (even though I was planning on going to Prohibition Pig regardless.)
Walked in around lunch time with my girlfriend. Walked though about 3/4s of the restaurant to the host table where we were greeted after about 30 seconds. A very nice woman told us that it would be a 10-15 minute wait. It was understandable because it was the Friday after a major holiday.
The scent of smoked woods flooded the establishment and smelled absolutely divine. While waiting, I figured I'd grab the beer menu and see what they had on tap so I could order myself and my lady something for the wait. I quickly skimmed and instantly saw Heady Topper. I decided to not look any further and got myself one. The girlfriend had me order here a half size of the Jack's Abby Leisure Time Lager. Had to pay at the bar before we were seated, so I did just that.
Upon being led to our seat by another nice young lady, we skimmed through the menus. I instantly gravitated to the BBQ beef brisket sandwich. My girlfriend had a tough time deciding so she asked the waitress her preference between 2 meals and the waitress recommended the turkey burger without second thought. We placed our order and while we were waiting for the waitress to come back to take that order I took a longer look at the draft list. BY FAR the best taplist I have ever seen in my life. I don't remember all, but they had Heady Topper, Double Sunshine, Allagash James Bean, Hill Farmstead Society & Solitude 5, Founders Imperial Stout, Maine Beer Co Peeper, Allagash Victor(ia) (not sure which), DFH Festina Peche, Jack's Abby Leisure Time Lager, & Hoponius Union. I've had a few of those, but I really could've ordered the whole damn list.
Anyways, I ordered a Double Sunshine to come out with my food. When the food did arrive, it was delivered on metal trays with deli paper or whatever it is. I got my brisket sandwich with the shoestring fries, which were a little different than I thought they would be. They were more like sticks, instead of the curly shoes strings that I'm used to. Regardless, the fries and the sandwich were absolutely awesome. Being a person who really likes BBQ food, I can see why some may not like the brisket. To me it was awesome. A juicy, tangy, smoky taste just erupted from my sandwich. My girlfriend also loved her turkey burger.
As for price, I got 2 full size beers, 2 half size and my girlfriend got 2 half sized beers. We also each got a lunch meal that was about 12-15 bucks. The total bill was probably around 40 bucks or so. I thought it was a great value, especially because of the 4 beers that I've been dying to try even before I walked through the door. Even reviewing the taplist now online, I know that I was incredibly fortunate to stroll in on the day I did.
To those who were disappointed about selection, I'd say definitely give this place another chance because they are definitely capable of having some heavy hitters on tap. Oh and as I said, if you're a BBQ lover then this place could become a new favorite place. I know that the next time I take the 4 hour drive to Vermont, Prohibition Pig is one of the must visit places for me.
Oh and BTW I definitely wrote too much. Take it for what it is, though.

This is a must-stop location when visiting Waterbury if you love BBQ. The beer selection is excellent and the food is even better.
Atmosphere is great - upscale and clean, a little different than the other spots in town. Servers are friendly and knowledgeable. The number of beers on tap isn't going to blow you away but the quality is excellent. When I was there, the taps featured the likes of Lawson's, Heady Topper, HF, Allagash and more. They also had good representation across different types of styles and some beers that paired well with the food, especially the smoked lager. Will definitely return here on my next trip to Waterbury.

Went here after stopping at The Alchemist. Anyways, this place was a bit disappointing. Tap selection was good. Food was a bit of a bust.
The Mrs. and I got duck fat fries for an appetizer which were certainly nothing special. I got the Sliced Beef Brisket, which was solid, but again, nothing special. The Mrs got the Chopped Pork BBQ. This was somewhere between bad and terrible. It was much too spicey, and spicey wasn't even noted on the menu for this item. The sides were "meh", but to be fair, I'm not sure how much you can do with hush puppies and potato salad to make them stand out.
For dessert, we got the Pain Perdu, which sort of saved the meal. This was the only standout part of the food.
Beer-wise, the selection is good and since I don't live in Vermont, many were new to me. I went with two Hill Farmstead beers which were both excellent. The taps really had a good variety of styles among them, which is nice to see.
Service was fine. Waitress was attentive but not overly so. Had our beers and food in a timely manner.
Anyways, I wouldn't bother with dinner here. Good for a snack and a few beers. Nothing more.

This place was a bit of a let down on my visit. The tap list was OK but not as good as the other two places in town and of course the Heady was kicked. They had 23 taps but couldn’t find anything that was particularly special so I grabbed an Edward to go with my Brisket sandwich and fries (pretty decent). I used the restroom before I left and when I came back (jacket still on my bar stool my beer was already taken away off the bar. Pretty lame service as the bar was quite empty...I took it as a sign though and decided that I really wasn’t up for reprimanding someone over my last few of ounces of Edward. Next time I will drop in though to give Prohibition Pig a second chance and I hope that it turns out better than this visit though the Blackback is really the place to be I think.

for some time now, I had been wanting to try this place. I had heard nothing but good reviews. Finally my wife and I ventured to waturbury and gave it a shot. Walked in, and it was very busy. The atmosphere was very welcoming. The beer selection was amazing. Though, they were sold out of the hill farmstead dipa. Big surprise. The service was ok.. our waitress was kind of rude, but nonetheless I didn't let it ruin my time. I ordered the pulled brisket sandwich. Delicious, absolutely delicious! The homade hot sauce they have there made it even better! My wife got the veggie burger and she was completely satisfied with it as well. I will be making a return to try the dinner menu.
