I visited this brewery on the weekend before Thanksgiving. The venue was busy, which is a good sign. I had the root beer, and it was very good. The service was very good, and it was overall a great experience.

the only brewery in northern berkshire, it's located within the campus of the massachusetts Museum of contemporary Art (MASSMOCA). Good beer, great pizzas from Crisp.

This was a great place to come to for a snack partway through our visit to Mass MoCA. The bartenders were friendly and chatty about their beers and there's a small place selling pizza/salads and some snacks in the building that was great as well.

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
