No trip to the Waterbury area is complete without stopping into The Reservoir Restaurant and Taproom. The Reservoir has created the perfect combination – a locally-sourced menu, tons of craft beer options, and a laid-back atmosphere. It’s the perfect spot to gather with friends and share beers and snacks.


14th Star Brewing started as a daydream in the mountains of Eastern Afghanistan. While deployed overseas, soldiers have plenty of time to contemplate two things: beer and getting out of the Army. Steve and his buddies were doing just that in 2010 when the idea came to the long-time homebrewers: Why not open a brewery, preparing for the day we can retire from the Army? Thus started the journey from a handwritten business plan in the back of a notebook, to fully-licensed craft brewery. While new to the brewing industry, 14th Star understands that it is a small part of a proud craft brewing community in Vermont and of the Vermont artisan community as a whole. They strive to uphold the craftsmanship, attention to detail, balanced flavor, and hometown responsibility that are the hallmarks of the Vermont craft scene.

Don’t miss out– tickets are limited!
