Moe's Tavern: Nothing mainstream here


LEE -- For beer drinkers with discriminating tastes, Moe's Tavern in Lee is worth a visit. Owner Josh Cohen offers nothing mainstream. At any one time, the establishment on Railroad Street has 17 kinds of beer on tap and two dozen types of bottled brew.

Cohen said since opening in the former Men's Club in October 2007, Moe's has developed a loyal following willing to try something new or different.

"Our clientele consists of a lot of regulars who want to go where there is an ebb and flow of product," he said. "Many come here to relax and have a breather from work before going home."

In the course of a year, Moe's will carry some 500 American craft beers from around the country -- including the Berkshires and Western Massachusetts.

Moe's doesn't serve food, although patrons can bring their own, and it stays away mixed drinks and hard liquor, except for a fine collection of whiskey.

Cohen says Moe's is unique to the local bar scene and he likes it that way.

"I don't need everybody to like us, only a few people to love us," he said.
