We were camping during a rainy weekend in the Berkshires and while we had outdoor plans for hikes with dogs, Mother Nature had alternative plans for us! We researched indoor venues (without dogs, they got to hang in the camper and watch TV) and Bright...More

When I am feeling sad, this is where I go to sit in the sun on the bright yellow chairs, sip some awesome beer, eat delicious and lovingly prepared pizza, and chat with other folks there, doing the same. What a fun, lively, homey community...More

This is located in the same parking lot as MassMOCA (Museum) but it is not an uppity craft brewery. The prices are very reasonable! Extremely friendly staff. You can taste any beer before you order a pint. The Red Ale was excellent and very easy...More

We visited this brewery after going to the Museum of contemporary Art. It’s a cute little brewery with very fresh beer, nice choices and friendly staff. What more could you want? Give it a try!

Shared a tasting flight of four beers, enjoyed them all, but the barrel-aged bourbon stout was the winner! Also had the soft warm pretzels from the independent food cart. Its a great place to have a craft beer, with a huge bar and table seating....More

Great fresh brews. Lowkey ambiance. Friendly bartenders and decent bar food...well, salads, flatbreads and chips. The only downside is all food is served on plastic. Really? Recommend they strive to recycle. But the food was decent, the beer delicious, and the people, fun!

Perfect way to spend some time on a rainy Saturday after browsing through Mass MOCA. We love the industrial, artsy atmosphere and the great beer!

I visited this attraction with my sister and her boyfriend on New Years Eve weekend. I had the root beer, and my sister and her boyfriend enjoyed other things like the stout. Overall great experience.
