An obvious, new, must hit Beer hunter destination in the Amherst/Northampton area. As others have noted, there is no sign, so get your directions ready and keep your eyes open, we, of course drove by a few times, before getting the image up on line in the car, thank you BA Beerfly!
Great tap and bottle selections, check their website for the details, but be confident you will find stuff here that is not pouring in many places. Locals, regionals (Yeah Sixpoint!) nationals (3-4 Stone selections) Hennepin, Saison Dupont, tons of other on tap and bottles, cask selections, they have got the goods beer wise
Upscale, artistic, big, cool, friendly staff, great bathrooms, all the correct glassware, reasonable prices, this place has ALOT going for it. If I was local this would be the obvious watering hole. Highly recommended, if you are anywhere near the area.
Holy smokes BBQ is just a few minutes away in Hatfield and no warm weather visit to the area is complete without a dip in Puffers pond, (easy directions from Google )just north of Amherst.

Fantastic service, wonderful atmosphere, imaginative menu with super fresh, local
ingredients (I only wish they had a few more vegetarian options, but the ones they do have are excellent)...and the tap list!!! wow! At least 40 taps, and the selection is pretty amazing.
They always have a great balance of local breweries and breweries from around the US and the world. I've been lucky enough to be there when they had what seemed like a total surprise tapping of KBS, Backwoods Bastard, a Maine Beer Co. tap takeover, and many other treasures.
So, so good!

This place is sleek and hip. 40 or so taps with good rotating selection. Good beers that aren't flat, good food but limited, kinda knowledgeable bartenders that are short with you and sometimes snarky. But overall a solid place for good beer. The crowd is mixed with some hipsters who nurse their $7 beer for over and hour.
