This place was a much needed addition to North Adams. I am often surprised by the quality of their craft selection, having lived in the area for 5+years I have come to expect that the only craft beer options will be BBC SteelRail and a SamAdams Seasonal. With quickly rotating taps of FirestoneWalker, Stone, BBC, Victory, GooseIsland, BearRepublic, and many others I am a happy customer. Decent bottle list too but it doesn't change nearly as quick as their taps. They are very good about updating their online tap list. Thanks Public!

Public Eat & Drink is one of my family's favorite restaurants.

First, I will start with the beer. They have 11 taps that are constantly rotating, and they always have something good on tap, none of it is crap like Budweiser. Last time I was there, I was drinking Ommegang Abbey Ale and Habanero Sculpin, and the time before I was drinking Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA and Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro. They have had brews from the Great Divide, Southern Tier, Smuttynose, Long Trail, Bear Republic, Dark Horse, Victory, Stone, Rogue, Peak Organic and many more, it's always rotating. And they have a few more in bottles as well, but I've always found enough solid choices on tap.

The atmosphere is great as well, in a recently renovated older building with brick walls, tall ceilings and cool round glasses.

Their food is great as well. They are one of few places that will do their burgers medium-rare, and they have the best burgers in the area as well. I would recommend the Brie Burger -- sounds like a weird combination, but it's great. They also make everything there from scratch, and do a very good job with it.

Public Eat & Drink is mine and my wife's new favorite restaurant. We have been a number of different times and recommended it to our friends. Every time I have gone there have been new beers on tap and even though I haven't ordered a bottle the selection of those is varied enough to satisfy the needs of every one no matter what he taste buds are looking for. We are more than willing to drive the distance to enjoy the ambience, food and drink at Public. Enjoy. I have been exposed to a number of new beer flavors from the Octoberfests to Pumpkins and Summers.
