I stumbled upon brew pub-restaurant Prohibition Pig on my last trek to the green mountains of Vermont. From the moment I walked in, I knew I struck gold. A beer selection a mile deep, not to mention their own beer offerings, this local brew pub, influence by the deep South, features shrimp and grits, brisket, pulled pork and pork rinds among other Southern specialties.
A barbecue joint that serves classic cocktails, craft beers and offers an array of comfort foods, Prohibition Pig also brews its own beer in a building behind its restaurant. Among the selection of beers are several draft offerings from Prohibition Pig’s own brewery, including their Multi-grain IPA and Vanilla Bean Porter. They began brewing in 2013 and the reaction from locals and visitors has been overwhelmingly positive.
The brewery is just behind the restaurant and also offers some food alongside its selection of draft beers, made from the kit shown below.
I couldn’t help but notice that the bar was stocked with some of my favorite micro-distilled spirits. The food passing by me courtesy of the milling wait staff convinced me that the 30 minute wait for a table was a no-brainer. Luckily, I was able to secure a table quickly and could settle in to enjoy some of Prohibition Pig’s offerings.
Below, a peek of their menu.
Our table opted to start with some pork finds and to start with an Old Fashion.
Now our entrees, a pulled-pork sandwich and their jumbo Hot Dog:
And lastly, the meal ended with Prohibition Pig’s Key Lime Pie.
All in all, a great place for brunch, lunch or dinner. Great beer, cocktails and Southern inspired food always hits the right spot.
