A kind of a hippie place; it almost makes McNeill's look like a meeting of the Vermont Young Republicans Club, worth going to anyway.
The beer is excellent, though not as good as McNeill's. The menu is a weird, with a mix of everything from organic New Age cuisine to pickled eggs. The crowd isn't the most friendly and this place is not the most family friendly place I've been to (I couldn't explain to my daughter why they waitress had her face pierced). The caps and t-shirts are great and a bargain (except the hemp one, which runs a bit high). Certainly an oddball as brewpubs go; but again, worth the trip.

Update: 3/20/09: Stopped in solo. Smoked wings were excellent. Amazing thing was how much they cared about their beer.
The manager kept pushing the bartendesr to a higher level, explaining to them the different beers and encourging them to give customers samples of new beers.
The bartender offered to take back my Bitter because iit had yeast in it and I told her not to bother and she said "ok".
The place was clean, the food good and the staff acted like they wanted to be there...all you can ask, though the beers could be a notch higher.
Will go back with the kids and see if the waitress with the face ring stil haunts the place. Go if you get the chance and good example of a sucessful brewput that works.

I've been to the People's Pint a few times. The food is fantastic. The servers are extremely friendly. The atmosphere is relaxed. The menu is a little limited, but what they do have is all very good. If your in the area People's Pint is a must stop.

Cool place with good food and knowledgeable staff. Beers weren't too shabby either ;) I had their Slippery Slope (Braggot @ 9 abv ) & their imperial IPA. Both were very tasty.

Long time fan of the "Pint" a strong focus on Valley Local that dates back nearly 20 years.
The food value is super, the kitchen has turned many seasonal offerings into fabulous plates.
The service is always great, the place can get loud though I don't consider it to loud.
The beers are from their own brewery, the standard beers are solid, but the seasonal's are usually fantastic.
They usually have 2 cask engines, that said we go almost weekly.
Clearly worth the effort.
Cheers
