About Bub

Bub Gourmand is here to recommend our favorite craft beer and restaurants in Western Mass.

The House

There’s a reason you haven’t heard from us in awhile; we bought an old farmhouse.

Honest Weight
  • 131 West Main St., Unit 104
  • Orange, MA 01364
Share Coffee Roasters

Share Coffee roasts their beans and hosts tastings at their Hadley hub. They also have caf├ęs in Northampton and Amherst.

Chez Albert
  • 178 N Pleasant St.
  • Amherst, MA 01002

Don’t be intimidated by the menu. At Chez Albert the Bouillabaisse and Escargot are cozily at home with the best burger in Amherst.

The Problem With Beer Festivals

Do beer festivals actually care about local craft brewers and the fans who drink their beer? We’d love to hear your opinions.
