On my way to Cooperstown and the Solid Sound Festival I visited Moe's Tavern. Looks like your neighborhood bar with some beer paraphernalia and other oddities decorating the space. Nice beer selection on tap with about 9 or so draught lines. The bottle list was decent too but not updated so we had to make 2 or 3 picks to get a beer they had in stock. Moe's does not serve food but they allow you to bring food there so thats cool. I liked Moe's tavern but I would not make it a destination, if your in the area definitely check it out.
Cheers

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!

I had heard about Moe`s Tavern for some time now, not nearly as long as the one from the Simpsons, but they do have quite a bit of Simpsons paraphernalia up. Along with plenty of signs and other decor from craft brewers. I think I also saw a skateboard, maybe some skis on the wall.
For the beer, they have 16 or so taps. And then there is a small fridge with a selection of a few dozen bottles. I recall things from Founders, Stillwater, Atwater, Dogfish, Rogue and others. No food on premise, but I believe that they are ok with you bringing in take-out food from wherever. Only small downside is that prices are a bit higher than what might expect, particularly for this area. But, certainly worth a stop if you find yourself in the area.

A tremendously fun bar with a very good beer selection and something for everyone.

The prices range from the reasonable to the extreme ($4 to $399!). There is a large inside above the large window that says "No Coors Light." They have a helpful menu that breaks their beers into four categories (basically IPAs, Porters, Lagers and Belgians).

The bartender was very friendly and attentive, and though she acknowledged she was still learning about beer, she was very willing to talk about it. She put up with my friend and I which gave her extra points.

The food, while not unbelievable, was good and hit the spot. We had a buffalo chicken strip sandwich and three slider burgers. All very reasonably priced and well-made.

It's a great place to get stranded for a few hours in the Berkshires of Massachusetts.

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).

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.

If you live in the Berkshires, this is a must stop for any beer drinker. That have a great assortment of beers in both bottles and on tap. They even have an easy to understand menu that divides the beers up according to catagory. Josh the owner, and his staff are all very knowledgable on all of the beers that they serve. Just ask them for a kind of beer and if they dont have it they can recommend something that is equally good or even better. The size of the establishment is a little small but the great atmosphere makes up for it. They always got great music playing and multiple flat screen tvs to whatch the game on. They serve standard bar food, ex: great mini dogs, sliders, etc., but there great selection of beer is the best part of this place. Keep up the great job Josh. Thanks

Moe's is a great beer bar were you will find NO COORS LIGHT served but if you love great beer like Founders, Dog Fish, Allagash, etc. then this is the spot. The owner Josh who's there a lot really knows his beer and even if it's your first time he makes you feel at home. They don't serve food but they have take out menus from all the local restaurants that you can order from. Not only do they have a great beer list but if you like whiskey they have almost 100 different types. I recently had Founders Imperial Stout on tap and loved it. It's a little bit of a hike from Albany, NY or Springfield, MA but you could always convince the wife/girlfriend to drop you off while she hits the Lee outlet mall down the road.
