Prohibition Pig — Waterbury’s Prohibition Pig is renowned for its meats: tender, smoky barbecue melding the best of Southern tradition and Vermont ingredients. But it’s also respected for its draught list, which brings beers aplenty — two dozen on any given night — with suds from super-exclusive, world-class breweries such as Burlington’s Zero Gravity Craft Brewery, Greensboro’s Hill Farmstead Brewery and Waterbury’s the Alchemist.

In 2013, owner Chad Rich and brewer Nate Johnson decided to take a crack at making their own beer. Their flagship brew, Prohibition Pig Pale Ale, started selling faster than they could make it. Now they’re making everything from low-ABV session ales to a powerful double IPA, a red ale with kombucha, and several others.

And there’s a lot more on the way. With construction underway that will expand the building, Pro Pig’s brew operation will grow significantly, making way for new beers and more of them.
