Prohibition Pig Expands Draft List and Menu

Two weeks ago, Winooski's Four Quarters Brewing made a splash when it introduced the crowler: a 32-ounce disposable can filled to order, much in the same way as a growler. Now Waterbury's Prohibition Pig is jumping on the can-wagon.

According to owner Chad Rich, the crowler machine should arrive this week. This weekend or next, thirsty patrons should be able to get their fill of the brewery's popular Bantam Double IPA, Multi Grain IPA and a hoppy saison brewed during a recent collaboration with Stillwater Artisanal Ales' Brian Strumke — along with three other house beers on draft.

That's not the only change coming to the Pig's brewery. Rich says he's in the process of adding another half dozen house beers on tap (both in the brewery and the restaurant) and reworking the tasting room's menu, which currently features tacos and a few other Mexican bites. Additions will include snackable Latin American-inspired foods, such as ceviches, arepas and Cuban street eats. Rich also plans to add more south-of-the-border cocktails, such as twists on the frozen margarita, and pisco sours.

"It's not going to be as big as the menu in the restaurant," Rich says, "but it'll be a lot more than we currently have." The plan is to have the new menu up and running in May, so people can enjoy it al fresco in the new outdoor seating area. "This style of food can be really conducive to sitting out in the sun," Rich says.

Now all we need is some warmer weather.
