OK, so this place had an unblended Cantillon lambik on draft, the only place in the US that Iíve 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.

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 itís popular - it has a very good beer list, good food and a nice atmosphere.

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. Iím on a budget while traveling the country, so I didnít 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 thatís just my Midwestern perspective. All in all, top-notch bar in a city I might not make it back to, so Iím glad we made it in here when we had the chance. A must-visit if youíre nearby.

Great addition to the Worcester beer scene. This place opened shortly after I moved away. Nice place, kind of dark inside, little industrial, but pleasant color wood scheme, . Looks like 15 or so people could sit bar. Narrow table and then the dining area. Also a room in the back section that wasnít there the first time I went here. Service has been good, but Iíve never been there when itís been crowded. Sat at bar twice and table this last visit. Help has been good. Friendly, polite, beer knowledgable. Solid selection. Mix of American craft and Belgian. Food has been darn good . This last trip I had pork belly carbonara. Using pork belly as the noodles. Lots of season vegetables. Locally sourced stuff. Not a bargain place, could be thought of a tad high in price, but I feel like you get quality products here. I like it and would recommend if you are I the area.

really cool place...very good and friendly service, awesome food, and really nice beer selection. prices are a bit on the high side but they have some nice selections and the food will not disappoint. My bartender wascute as hell which is always a plus...but i couldnt get her to give me a Tree House glass. Iíll visit again if Im near Worcester.

What a great place. Stopped in for brunch after EBF. Food was top notch and reasonable (they smoke their own bacon, have changing menus based on local ingredients and what the chefs feel like making...o and the food tastes great). It was fairly quiet when we went around 11:30 but it quickly filled up, they still had 5 LA beers on tap including Sinners 10, Duck Duck Guava and CdT. Also had bottles of Cantillon (which I understand is not so usual in the US) along with many other tasty offerings. Staff was very friendly and quite knowledable, and it was a great place to hang out. Wish this was my local watering hole...although then I would be broke...

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 theyíre still cool. Side note: I am also one of those people. Itís 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 Jackís Abbey, as well as some more common offerings that youíll 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.
