This place is a must stop if you're in the area.

I follow them on Facebook and the on tap selection is ever changing, it's great!

Walked in for the first time the other day and was greeted by name. First and last name. I was a bit shocked to say the least, and the beer is top notch.

I also heard their dogfish 60 min wings are award winning, but the kitchen is closed and under renovations. Also is full of kegs, lol.

The owner know his beers well. And know what glasses to pour them in. Excellent establishment.

I love the eclectic atmosphere. Simpsons paraphernalia, pulp fiction references, craft beer posters,... this is my type of place. The wife and I hiked Mt Greylock and this is right on the way home. The place is very clean. Clean draft lines, fresh food. I've never gotten better service anywhere. Josh is the man. We sat down and he went over every beer on the taplist with us. Our food order came out very quick. Everyone was so friendly. Open dialogue throughout the bar. The least pretentious craft beer bar that I've ever been to. Awesome selection. About 13 beers on tap... 0 wasted. All carefully selected. KBS keg in storage. Food menu is short but sweet. The wings and burger we had was very tasty. Everything was very reasonably priced. I have to restate - Josh is the man. Awesome place... may be my favorite.

Place keeps about 13 good american craft beers on tap (and fresh) and a great bottle selection (no Duff, or even Düff). They maintain a good mix on what's on hand for the season. There on a warm summer day, but they still had a couple good darker beers on hand, along with a nice selection of summery stuff. The DFH 60 Min IPA is the house beer that's always there.

Food menu is rather limited, but they do what they do well. Friendly, knowledgeable staff, and the owner never seems to be out of earshot for long.

If you're in the area, be sure to stop in.

I've visited Moe's several times now in the past year and 1/2. Growing up in Lee, I remember this place when it was the Men's club. My father would bring me in and then the Budweiser and Schultz (Remember that one) Would fly.

Moe's has strayed far from those days. With a very large bottle selection and impressive Tap selection, you should be able to find several crafts brews to your liking. Atmosphere is very pleasant and the owner and bartenders with help you with anything. Small bar food selection, but it should compliment your favorite craft beer.
I love this place. I'm glad I only live 14 miles away.

Visited for the first time this past weekend - what a treat!

The atmosphere is warm and inviting, with the walls covered in beer signs. It's a nice, small spot that wasn't overly crowded - a seat at the bar was easily procured. The bartender knew her shit, which is always a plus at a suburban beer bar.

With just 11 taps, the rare and diverse selection made up for it. I started with a McAuslin Oatmeal Stout on nitro, then into a Troegs Hopback amber, and finished with a Left Hand Warrior IPA. The bottle selection was phenomenal as well, with many rarities (Alesmith Speedway Stout, DFH Squall, Founders Breakfast Stout etc).

Overall, a great gem in western Mass that is a must stop if driving through on the pike...

Just paid a visit to Moe's for the first time while I was visiting a friend and was pleasantly surprised! From the outside, it looks like your typical, small dive bar in the middle of nowhere with little to no crowd at all. However, once you get inside & read their tap list (which is written on the windows), you know you've stepped into the right place.

I was able to try Dogfish Head Pangaea on tap (which was awesome). Definitely did not expect them to have this, nor the wide selection of Rogue liquors. Overall, I was VERY impressed with the selection for such a small bar. If you're out in the Berks, I highly recommend stopping by & grabbing a pint (or two).

I was driving through MA last week and found this place on the BA website. I loved everything from the atmosphere to the beer selection. The food selection was limited but the burger I ordered was good. They did have DFH 60 min wings that I did not try...maybe next time! The bartender was great, knowledgeable, and personable. Overall, the vibe of this place is a "regular" hang-out, big plus in my opinion. I love unpretentious bars and this definitely matches the criteria (in a good way)!

Met up with Grover in Springfield and headed for Lee/Moe's on our way to the DEAD show in Albany. Friendly, funky place just a block or so from the mini main drag in tiny Lee. 11 on tap, 30 or 40 bottles (a hand full of Founders bottles were enticing). DFH, Rogue, Stone on behalf of the heavy hitting nationals and then BBC, Mayflower and some others on behalf of the locals. Hendrix on the stereo, a friendly bartender, personable owner, tasty sandwedges (I tried the veggie, "Bird food" special) all added up to an easy going, quite worthy, casual stop in the Berkshires. I need a place like this in my neighborhood! I would be there too often for my waistline.

I took my two sons (12 and 9 years old) and my dad (70+ years old) and we all had a great time. My kids loved the wings, sweet potato fries and Saranac Root Beer. My dad and I loved the Southern Tier Choklat stout on tap. Josh, the owner, was friendly and engaging as was the rest of the staff. I'm going to make Moe's Tavern a regular stop whenever I visit the Berkshires.

On Tap:
Dogfish Head Aprihop
Troegs Rugged Trail Nut Brown ALe
Berkshire Brewing Raspberry Strong
Atwater Vanilla Java Porter
Bear Republic Racer 5 IPA
Abita LIGHT
Victory Saphir Pils
Sixpoint Apollo Wheat
Southern Tier Choklat
Young's Double Chocolate Stout
Dogfish 60 Miniute IPA

Just took the youngest brother for his 21st birthday, as he lives in the area. We had a very good time. Great selection for a beer bar in a very small town in Western MA; made his "first" beer experience very approachable.

Atmosphere is a little weird and eclectic - a lot of Rogue stickers everywhere, Simpson's memorabilia, chalkboard walls with Beer 101 type scrawlings, 11 taps written in colored soap on the window, neon lights, and a lot of craft beer marketing tchotchkes (sp?). The anti-BMC vibe was heavily present here, to the point of being unnecessary and a little annoying. But the music was amazing - classic rock song after classic rock song that we all knew by heart!

Owner was super-nice and approached us to thank us for introducing our little bro to good beer and him to a new customer - "I keep reminding myself that people are turning 21 every day" he said. Ha ha.

A great bottle list, decent prices, and a fun menu - 60 Minute Wings (I assume Dogfish Head beer batter) were tasty, the Krusty Burgers were a little overcooked. Happy to find this place, and I will be back when visiting my brother!
