Drove up to the Moan and Dove today as part of the day's adventure through the Northampton/Amherst area. The Moan and Dove is a bit out of the way, located a few miles south of Amherst center, out in the country a bit, it's easy to miss and indeed we did the first time by. From the outside, looks like a respectable pub, not flashy, nice trim, looks cozy. Step inside and it's exactly what I want and hope to see in a good drinking establishment. Subltle lighting, simple decor, peanuts by the barrel for snacking, and lots of taps pouring amazing beers. Nice large bar with plenty of barstools, plenty of room to socialize and enjoy your beer.
We happened in for the tail end of the Moan's Big Beer Fest, meaning they had 14 draft beers over 8% - and what an incredible selection. We sampled such wonders as DFH Old School Barley wine, Arrogant Bastard, DFH 90 min IPA, etc. Would have had lots more if we didn't have to drive back to CT! The bartender was friendly and very knowlegeable, and good music was playing the entire time. This is a great place to relax, talk, have a few or many beers, and enjoy the best that beer has to offer. Certainly the best beer bar I've been to in the area, I will be back!

Went here a few days ago. Great little bar that doesn't serve food but you can bring in your own. Great for picky eaters. Great tap list of rare imports and craft beers. Big bottle list that you can conquer over a few years. It's a nice place to bring a friend for drinks.
