Drink and Dine

Three brewpubs where the beer—and the food—are well worth the visit.

prohibition pig

Prohibition Pig

Waterbury, Vermont

Beloved Vermont gastropub Prohibition Pig opened its own brewpub next door in December. Food-wise, you’ll find a taco-centric menu, plus pork ramen and pretzels. Ten draft lines, meanwhile, dispense pale ales and IPAs of all stripes, heftier stouts, and creative brews like the Brass Monkey, an orange-zested malt liquor. prohibitionpig.com


Willimantic Brewing Co.

Willimantic, Connecticut

Long before New England brewers jumped on the hoppy-beer bandwagon, Willimantic brewer and owner Dave Wollner was producing more than 20 kinds of IPAs each year. Wollner also has a passion for spicy food: His “Oy Vey” chicken wings, for example, are made with locally grown habanero peppers. willimanticbrewingcompany.com

zero gravity

Zero Gravity Craft Brewery

Burlington, Vermont

Inside American Flatbread’s Burlington Hearth outpost, Zero Gravity brewer-owner Paul Sayler, along with brewmaster Destiny Saxon, crafts Belgian ales, German lagers, and hoppy American styles that happen to pair quite well with crisp-crusted pies. zerogravitybeer.com
