Literally stumbled upon Moe’s Tavern while walking around Lee, MA. Happily ducked in for a drink and was welcome by Troeg’s, Victory & DFH neons and signage. Made a Philly boy feel comfortable. Selection was wide ranging with more national brands than local. Bar was all locals, bartender knowledgable, proper glassware and large windows to view the streetscape & draft list. Nice local place that I was happy to stumble upon.
Stopped here recently to check it out after hearing good things about the place. Very easy to get to right off I-90. Nice laid-back atmosphere. Good service and selection. Impressive stash of whiskey too (didn’t try). Well worth a stop if you are in the area.
This place is really legit. I grew up in the area and take great pride in having a place like this around. Moe’s serves up a great range of [almost exclusively] American beers in both bottles and on tap. (I saw some Unibroue kicking about.) The bartender was very friendly and happy to suggest beers. The draft range on my visit was excellent, containing both local beers and national. There is craft beer ephemera covering almost every surface in the place, and it’s fun just to let your gaze go wild while here. The draft beers ranged in price from $5 to about $8 or $9. If I recall correctly, there is no food served here but you are free to bring in your own. Moe’s is by far the best bar (that I know of) within at least a 30-mile radius. If you are driving through the Berkshires this place is a must-visit.
Very close to perfect. Back in the day when they served food (such as their amazing DFH 60 wings), they were nearer to the divine.
Still, a wonderful bar with a great rotating selection, awesome and extremely knowledgeable bartenders, and a cozy atmosphere.
Easily one of my top 3 favorite beer bars in the US.
Moe’s has established themselves as both a haven for local folk and a destination for those seeking a miriad of superb beer choices. If you are overwhelmed by the number of beers, their highly knowledgable bar staff will provide suggestions, guidance or education depending on your level of sophistication. The owner’s dedication to quality beer and spirits will snub the macro crowd but they may go elsewhere. Otherwise, all will feel welcome here as it is a bar with jovial comeraderie, safe for female afficionados, fledgling micro-drinkers or seasoned connoiseurs.
A great stop if you are anywhere near this place. Not the largest draft selection, but very high quality. Many hard to find brews on draft. Very knowledgeable and friendly service. Simple food menu, but everything they make is excellent. There burgers are very very good.
A must go-to whenever in Lee, MA or even close to the Berkshires. A friendly, welcoming atmosphere, terrific tap selection and even better bottle selection. You feel like you’re home when you’re here.
The beer is pricey, but it’s worth it for what you’re getting. The food is very solid. Lots of space. I’ll never go through Western Mass. again without visiting here.

Went here for dinner with my wife. I had an awesome cheese steak and my wife, a somewhat picky eater and non beer drinker, loved her burger and the ambience. We shared sweet potato fries that were awesome. Amazing bottle list and a solid draft list. I had a cookie jar porter and indulgence stout on draft. The owner was there helping out and although I wasnt there long enough to speak with him, he seemed very in touch with the customers. Highly recomended for anyone visiting the berkshires. Go out of your way if needed, awesome place!
This place is a mecca for craft beer lovers. Its the kind of place, which exudes, "come on i and let’s be friends". It reminds me of growing up in the Manhattan area, where almost every neighborhood had a Moe’s.
The beer selection is quite varied with high quality draft and bottle specimens. The bartenders also actually know what they are pouring/selling; a refreshing take, as the servers in many beer bars often have no clue and don’t care. Back to the beer selection. About a dozen draft lines with the brews of some of the best brewers in the USA, e.g. Avery, Boulder, DFH, Stoudt’s, Founders, etc., and some off-beat ones too (Troeg’s, Rogue, etc.). Proper glassware is often used. The bottle list is also first rate. I really like that it is categorized by style; a real plus for newbies and old-timers alike. While Moe’s carries mostly USA brews, they usually have Unibroue offerings and some high-end Belgians.
I have only had the fries, but they are very good, "frite-like", and
