Besides the Peoples Pint this was my first excursion to a brewpub or brewery in the Pioneer Valley (is Pittsfield BC or the Olde Forge there?). Though Opa Opa seemed a bit off the beaten track it was a nice ride through East Hampton and South Hampton. Opa Opa has a real nice outside deck and the date of our visit (8/8/06) was beautiful and the day to use it.
The staff was a bit young and unsupervised, but very friendly and helpful (sometimes you get an attitude when you have three children with you).
The food was very good, but nobody in our party had a steak. I had the Double IPA, milk stout and red ale all of which were very good.
The bar area looked pretty large and interesting.
I recommend the place to anyone, even if they have little kiddies in tow.

As far as the steak goes, I never order it. If I make a trip here I usually stick to the appetizers like the boneless buffalo wings, which are pretty good. It's more or less just a place for families to g out to eat, especially if you sit in one of the booths. You'll get a much better experience as far as beer drinking goes sitting at the bar.
The bar set up is actually really good compared to most restaurants. It's a good sized oval shaped with a lot of chairs to sit down at. There's always Red Sox games on during the spring, Pats games in the fall, and during the winter they'll have one television with the Bruins on and another with the Celts on, which is a big plus in my book. I wish that the TV's were bigger, but since they are set up so they are easy to see it's not really that big of a deal. The last time I made the trip there, I drank a couple of beers, watched the Celtics and played a few games of Keno with one of my buddies.
The different beers brewed by Opa-Opa are solid for the most part. There are definitely some that are better then others and ones that I don't like at all. On my last trip I ordered an F-15 Double Red, and it was the first brew I've ever had to send back to me it tasted like corn syrup and alcohol. I thought it might have been just me who thought that this brew was no good, but my buddy ordered one as well, and also sent his back. The bartender was very nice about it and let me pick a new beer free of charge.
Overall a good place, but it is more restaurant then brewery so keep that in mind if you decide to go there.

I finally got up here to have a dinner and a few beers. This place will not disappoint. The decor is western style steakhouse. Their beers are quite good. I'm not sure what is actually brewed here and what comes from their off-site brewery, but they had a very large selection of their beers on tap. We started out with an appetizer of onion rings. Thick cut, tasty and a very large quantity. I had a filet mignon, while my wife had swordfish. Both were excellent and reasonably priced. The portions were generous without being too much. Even the kids menu was good. My daughter had chicken strips, which looked like they were made there.

Really nice selection of beers on tap, I didn't know that they made so many different kinds. I really enjoyed the bar which was a nice sized bar in a smaller room next to the main dining room. Really nice place. I didn't actually stop for food, but everything I saw looked really good. I thought the bar service was really good as it was very timely and friendly. If I had a question, it was answered. The selection of beers it what I am most impressed about because I had no idea that they brewed that many different kinds of beer. Their buckwheat IPA was really good along with their Adonis gold. Their Oktoberfest was also worth having if it is on tap. The quality of the beers is top notch too. Everything is fresh and really good. Well worth a trip. I have to go back for the food selection which I have heard is also really good.

Stopped by this place on my way from the berkshires.

Was excited when we randomly met someone in williamsburg and they thought we should go there. When I walked in the door and saw Opa Opa, I remembered seeing posts about them here. Needless to say I was excited.

Tried the sampler brews. All very good. Their porter was good. They had a lot of fruit beers.

Food was ok.

Service was excellent.

If you're in williamsburg, you gotta stop. I dont know why you would be in williamsburg though...

This was my last stop on a beer trip into southwest, MA. Located about fifteen minutes south of Northampton on rt 10.

Stopped in at about eight pm on a friday, the place was pretty busy but no wait.

Opa Opa has the whole wild west, broke back mountain theme pretty much covered. All required equipment for your next cattle drive or sheep lovin adventure plastered all over the walls.

I ate in the dining room. There was a Dude playing the slide gee-tar against the wall between the bar and the bathroom entrance.

I ordered a smaller steak with potato that was Chili's quality beef at best. My wife ordered some sort of vegetable calzone deal...she liked it.

The food sounds great in the menu but is ridiculously overpriced. You would get a way better steak for the same price or cheaper at Outback.

The beer is good, unfortunately they were out of their big ones, (worthog, and double red rock) the two reasons that I stopped in the first place...Oh well!

Did a sampler tray that included six 4oz. samples of your choice. I chose;

Opa Lager
Red Rock
Milk Stout
Blueberry Lager

My pick of the day went to the Opa Opa Lager (American Helles)it was quite tasty and refreshing considering that it was friggin Baghdad degrees yesterday! The blueberry Lager was pretty good, light and refreshing with a subtle taste of blueberry.

I do have to give it up to the service at this place though. The waitress was very friendly and knew a lot about the beers, and Opa Opa's general brewing operation. She even gave us free dessert because a table near us was a bit rowdy.

This place gets an overall OK from me, I won't go out of my way and I will definitely call ahead to find out if it's a growler worthy stop.

i have to admit that i don't love opa opa. i only live about 20 minutes away from opa opa and i wish that i loved the place, but it really is just not that good. i wouldn't go so far as to say that it's bad, because it's not bad, but it's just not that good.
- it's overpriced. the food is not bad, but for the same price i could get much better food elsewhere.
- every single time i have been there (about 8 times now) they have always been out of more than 1 beer. i can totally understand that and it's not a big deal, but i just wish they would have an updated tap list somewhere so that i'm not disappointed every time i try to order a beer. on top of that, i've never had a great beer there. i have had a few decent beers, the best probably being the warthog dipa, but nothing spectacular.
- i know the place is a steakhouse and they don't specialize in seafood, but i will never order seafood there again. i made the mistake of ordering a combo steak and swordfish meal there once and the fish was horrible (obviously previously frozen and super dry).
- the meal you receive is not always exactly as described on the menu. when i ordered the following for lunch the last time i was there (a couple weeks ago), what i received was a half a grinder roll with a few bites of overcooked steak and some drippings of brown gravy on the top. while it wasn't bad, it certainly wasn't as good as it should have been and it wasn't as described on the menu.
"Sirloin Steak Sandwich $9.95 Served open-faced on grilled Ciabatta bread, topped with crisp onion straws served with steak fries."
- i did have great service there 2 of the times i went, but every other time i've been there the service has been mediocre at best.

-i will admit that their steak fries are pretty damn good, and i do like their steakhouse salad, but i can a make a much better salad and much better beer at home for a heck of a lot cheaper.

like i said, i don't want to say that opa opa is bad, it's just not a place that i ever have any desire to go to. i've gone back several times because friends want to go there and i'm always willing to give a place another try and try something new, but i am underwhelmed every time. that being said, i'm still looking forward to trying the brewmasters tavern at some point.

i'd say it's probably worth the drive out at least once to check it out for yourself, but i recommend that you don't get your hopes up too high.
