I recently attended Ciderdays, the western Massachusetts celebration of all things Malus Domesticus, especially hard cider. On our way home we hit one of my favorite places in the area for dinner, The People’s Pint, a great brewpub in Greenfield, MA.
The People’s Pint has several great beers of their own, and carries a good selection of beer and wine- and also locally crafted ciders and meads. The food is good, and reasonably priced- with a bias to healthy and local goods. It has a good college town vibe (not a drunken college pub vibe). A little loud when crowded, but not too bad (certainly not the ever-popular “food and yelling” nonsense so common lately).
Need to know: they do not take credit cards, so bring cash (or checks if you are familiar with that technology). Plenty of off-street parking very close to People’s Pint, just down Ames St. near the restaurant.
