Definitely the best place I visited in Massachusetts. Amazing beers on tap, including five Hill Farmsteads and Speedway Vietnamese Coffee. Also had a last taste of a Pretty Things here. Roast pork sandwich was amazing. Good service as well. They serve flights of some of their beers, though not everything is available.

I love this place! 21 smart taps, at any given visit I want to try 19 of them, beats the hell out of searching through 50+ taps for two that are moderately interesting, food is on the money but a little overpriced even for how good it is. just a little... friendly, accessible, not overwhelming, and again, 21 taps that put the average 121 taps to shame

Amazing bar in a sleepy town, these are some lucky locals. 6 Hill Farmsteads on tap, along with a Fiddlehead, and tons of other rare and or great ticks. Amazingly, they offer samplers as well. This is a tickers haven, with the added bonus that the beers are amazing. The marinated olives were excellent, but a couple other dished like the turnip and wings flopped. The one marrow was good but kind of missing on the marrow. A bit pricey for the food but decent overall. Amazing beer, decent food, but a bit over priced. Drink here, eat elsewhere.

Superb bar. I came by two times over a week and on my first visit they had 5 Hill Farmstead beers pouring on tap. My return visit saw two new Hill Farmstead and 2 Tree House beers on. I guess what I’m trying to say is that the selection is remarkable and good turnover sees new interesting beers regularly. Friendly bartender and patrons open to conversation. I had a pork belly sandwich that was delicious and there’s also an excellent cheese selection. A real find in the city of Worcester.

My first trip to Armsby was Zwanze Day 2014, it will not be my last. The service was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the beer and what they have in bottle and draft. The food was real pricey based on the potion. ($15.00 for seven Jerk Chicken Wings) So, I would eat before stopping back here but because of the awesome draft list and friendly service, there is a REAL good chance I will return here. Keep in mind I was here for an event so I would love to see what this place looks like on a standard Saturday afternoon.

Great spot overall. They have a solid range of taps with great variety; my only complaint would be that the selection of local breweries was limited to around five beers, but I think the quality and quantity of MA breweries warrants a higher allocation than that. Prices are decent. The food is excellent, and this place obviously pays very close attention to where they are sourcing their ingredients. The place itself is very clean and well laid out. The staff is courteous and efficient. This place certainly elevates beer restaurant/bar to the next level. Highly recommended.

Pretty cool place. It would get noticed anywhere, but definitely gets bonus points for being one of the few good places in and around Worcester. Very dark inside and a bit sparse. Feels a good bit like Lord Hobo in Cambridge. Serious tap list, knowledgeable staff.

Visited on a weekend before going to a Phish show at the Centrum/DCU Center. Rolled in at around noon and the place was already packed with the young urban professional Phish fans that still like to re-live their college hippie years and pretend they’re still cool. Side note: I am also one of those people. It’s tough for me to judge the average vibe of the place; when I was there it was packed, but friendly. The bartenders were busting their asses, but getting beers out efficiently, friendly, and more than happy to offer suggestions or have a quick chat about what was on tap. About 20 taps available, which included some awesome regional selections from Tree House and Jack’s Abbey, as well as some more common offerings that you’ll see all over the northeast. They seem to be the only game in town, so if you find yourself in Worcester this is the place to get a good beer.

A great bar-cum-restaurant in the centre of town. It was very busy when we were there and we were lucky to get a table but I can see why it’s popular - it has a very good beer list, good food and a nice atmosphere. (Visited 10 November 2012).
