The word to describe a weekend of incredible food, beer, forests and folks?  Well it might not be in the regular dictionary but in my personal Roze dictionary it's called Vermonting and we did just that two weeks ago up in Waterbury.  After a great Friday night with Arthur Puncheon at Hill Farmstead we began Saturday afternoon with a stop at Prohibition Pig, one of our favorite spots in Waterbury. For years I came to this restaurant and ordered the creamy Crisphead Salad and Chick n' Biscuits; two incredibly delicious menu items but I was always missing one huge thing.  THE PIG!  

So now I always order the special pork sandwich of the day, this time the Mumble Bee.  A chopped pork ciabatta sandwich piled high with coleslaw, honey habanero sauce and crispy onion strings. This was awesome- sweet, spicy and seriously messy.  Don't eat this unless you're completely comfortable with being covered in sauce and onion strings and of course always add on the Duck Fat Fries.

We never even come close to finishing this enormous mound of  cast iron potatoes so order one for the table and be prepared to share the deliciousness.

After Pro Pig we hopped in the car to Waitsfield for Lawson's Finest 9th Anniversary party with a celebration of their incredible beer like the hoppy Triple Sunshine and rich Apple Brandy Maple Faystons.

Then it was back into Waterbury for another round of Pub Nachos from Blackback.  We had already devoured a plate the night before but we just couldn't pass up getting one more order.  Thin crispy tortillas topped with melted cheddar cheese, smoked bacon, blue cheese, green onion and doused in a sweet maple chipotle sauce- FAVORITE NACHOS IN LIFE.

At that point we psychically couldn't eat anymore so headed out to celebrate the 4th Anniversary of Talk Beer at Parker Pie, an incredible place for pizza and beer with an even better community of beer folks. 

One more Huevos Rancheros at the Stagecoach Inn Sunday morning (the best breakfast in Waterbury) before hitting the road home.  Vermonting at its very finest!
