My wife and I had a small window to escape without the children so we had diner at the pint on Saturday evening. It was our first trip here in over a year. While we have always enjoyed the food and beer on our previous visits something was off this time around.

I ordered the pulled pork sandwich which came out extrememly dry, and chewy. I was not impressed at all. On the other hand the potatoes and coleslaw were fantastic. My wife ordered off the specials board, and got the chipotle bbq chicken. While the chicken was moist, the bbq sauce lacked flavor and pizazz. She was however delighted with her salad. So, While our entrees were definitely off, the side dishes were as tasty as I can ever remember. The service was exceptional on Saturday night. I can recall a few times in the past where we have had some pretty lame service but tonight was spot on.

The beers seem to be lacking a bit these days. I had the kolsch and the ESB while my wife had the shweat. The Kolsch had a very noticable diactyl taste, which I would not expect from this style.
While the ESB was cask conditioned, and somewhat tasty it did lack body, and seemed rather thin. The shweat was also lacking body, and any real flavor, but at 3.1% what can yo expect?

Overall the experience was good, and the food reasonably priced for local organic stuff. Next time I'll sample some more beers and hopefully find something that suits my taste.

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.

During a long weekend in Greenfield with friends we visited the People's Pint on a Friday night. When we got there the bar was already packed and it was standing room only to wait for a table. Not a problem since we were able to drink some beers while we waited. The restaurant a rectangular space with a large bow shaped bar in the middle. The bar shape takes away some standing room, but offers plenty of seats. It's a comfortable setting with no distracting TV's or loud music.

The beers offered are only what they brew there and they offer a large selection of styles, including blends. I thought that was pretty cool and not something you see often. Prices were reasonable and slightly lower than the Boston area. The food was good with descent portion sizes. However, I thought the burger I got was just OK. Not bad by any means, but nothing that made me go wow. I felt the same about the beers too. Descent beer, but nothing that makes me want to seek them out.

Service was great. Even on a busy night our waitress stopped by frequently to take beer orders, refill water glasses, remove empty plates, etc.

Overall I found the People's Pint as a nice place to go and grab a beer and burger with your friends. Just what a brewpub should be.
