OK, so this place had an unblended Cantillon lambik on draft, the only place in the US that I’ve ever seen such a thing how cool is that? The atmosphere is also cool. The place was smaller than I expected, but the music was really good, the staff was terrific, and the tap selection Was abosultely amazing. Oh, and the food was spectacular. Definitely worth going far out of your way to find this place.

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.

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).

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.

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.

Armsby Abbey is in downtown Worcester and we stopped here to meet up with lushawn and his lady on our way into Boston. We had to wait a little bit for a table but they were able to move a large group to a bigger table, opening up two. The first thing that caught my eye on the menu was Hill Farmstead Ephraim. Wow. Yes, please and thank you. The tap list was not massive but all-killer-no-filler. Good mix of local, regional, national, and international tap choices. The bottle list looked ridiculous. I’m on a budget while traveling the country, so I didn’t even bother, but there are gems to be had if you are willing to spend the money. The food was good, but the menu is fairly limited. They were out of quite a few things when we were there, too. Prices are a little on the high side, but maybe that’s just my Midwestern perspective. All in all, top-notch bar in a city I might not make it back to, so I’m glad we made it in here when we had the chance. A must-visit if you’re nearby.

Nice place, easy to find and with enough parking nearby. Ambiance is good, but it was loud even if not too crowded. Very good service, friendly and helpful. Selection is pretty good with a lot of great breweries (Jack’s Abby, Tree House, Hill Farmstead). Food was really good (cheese plate and something else that I don’t remember - but it was good!). Price are on the high side, but not unreasonable. This is a must visit when in the area and it’s worth a trip just to go there. I will definitely come back.
