In and around the town . . . Good Stuff in Greenfield
Greenfield is proud to be the home of Yankee Magazine’s Best Small-Town Pub, The People’s Pint.
"The People's Pint has been open since January 1st, 1997. All ages are welcome."In its current “Best Of” issue, the magazine praises the Pint’s quintessential localness, its food, and its beer. Congratulations to the Pint for sticking with its winning menu, branching into delicacies like bacon-chocolate-chip cookies, and pouring its crisp, satisfying beer. Here’s what Yankee Magazine had to say:
“As the shire town for Western Massachusetts' back-to-the-land movement, Greenfield has always hungered and thirsted for the quintessentially local. The People's Pint delivers on both, with well-rounded ales crafted with an edge of hops, plus a menu tailored for all tastes and diets. (Try the peanut noodles or beef sirloin kebabs.)”
Don’t mind if we do . . .
