So I stopped by Moe's this past Saturday after a long absence, my loss. This place just gets better and better. Along with My Place in Newtown, CT, my fave beer joint in this next of the woods, by far. The beer is always World Class, that's a given, but what sets this place apart is that it is unpretentious and comfortable, with fabulous music always playing. It reminds me of the small, local bars I grew up with in the NYC area. The owner, Josh, not only knows beer, but is a great host. I was also very excited to visit the new package store he has opened in the front of the same building, which houses Moe's. As with the tavern, unpretentious, just great brews and a nice easy going vibe. I wish I could grade this one even higher than 5.0 across the board. Thanks to Josh and keep doing what you are doing; we beer geeks appreciate it. If you have not made it to Moe's, get there; I guarantee you will have a great experience!!

Had to visit Josh's joint again before the end of the decade. Boy, am I glad I did. Check out the draught line-up that was running on this snowy Monday in the Berkshires:
DFH 60 Minute (house beer @ $4)
Troegs Nugget Nectar
Stone Arrogant Bastard
Rogue Yellow Snow
Anchor Christmas 2009 (!)
Elm City Pils
Left Hand Milk Stout
Pretty Things Jack D'or (American Saison)
21st Amendment Monk's Blood
Bear Republic Heritage (Wee Heavy--see separate review)
Avery Old Jubilation ('Tis the Season)
As I have to drive an hour to home, I only had the Anchor and Bear Republic with a taste of the Pretty Things and Monk's Blood (thanks Josh).
OK, so if you folks have not made a special trip to this beer oasis, make a New Year's resolution to do so, for real. Wow!!

Moe's is THE BEST bar in the Berkshires by far!!
The "No Coors Lite" motto says it all. Definitely a place for people who know and appreciate the wonderful world of craft beer. The atmosphere/vibe of this place is perfect. Very nicely decorated with lots of fun and interesting signs, patches, etc. The bar is lit up nicely to complement the ambiance.
Moe's is the perfect size to facilitate interaction with other craft fans- not too big, not too small, with comfortable seating at the bar or a number of different tables.
Chalk signs on the wall display the tap list, which is beautifully picked out- a perfect selection of all different styles from popular craft breweries to local ones.
There is also a huge selection of whiskey.
The bartender was very knowledgeable, perceptive, and made great recommendations.
I wish there were more bars like this, but then again maybe not, because that's what makes Moe's special- it's one of a kind for this area.
Moe's is truly craft beer heaven!

I'm stoked to see this place getting such great reviews. The beer selection is unmatched, and the decor of the place is just awesome. It's a little small, but, honestly, that doesn't hinder my love and respect for this place...Come to Lee MA and check it out! You won't be disappointed!

Moe's is an amazing place to have a beer. Not just a beer, but the best beers that America has to offer. It solely serves the best of American Craft beer, so you certainly won't find a Coors Light in the cooler. Instead you will be greeted by a bartender that can direct you to a full flavored craft American Lager from a microbrewery as a much better replacement.
They have plenty of beers on tap which usually range through some of the more popular craft beer styles, so you'll have plenty to pick from. If you want to wander outside your favorite styles, they'll be happy to recommend something new, and because they only stock the best of the best, it's sure to be a good example.
I live in North Carolina, but frequent Berkshire Country and this is always my first stop on my way into town. If you are a beer lover, this is a must go to.
Josh, the owner, can usually be found hanging out there and is very friendly with all his customers. Even though I may only get in there every other month, he and the bar staff always remember me. It's a nice little home away from home.
