I travel a lot with my job. This place has been a special treat. Only steps from my hotel, with a world class draft list. Plenty of IPAís, Black IPAís and Stouts. A dream come true. Couple that with great food and a great staff and that sir, is the reciepe for success. Keep doing what you are doing! This beer geek couldnít have had a better visit!

Stopped in with a bus load of beer loving Mainerís on our way home from a open house at B.United. The service was outstanding and the draft list was well thought out with something for everyone. Good locals, classic belgians and germans, and a great selection of american craft beers as well. The food was plentiful and delicious... would not go within 20 miles of this place and not stop. Must visit !

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.

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.

Visited during "The Festival" great spot and the food was top notch. Great beer list but I wonder if its always that good? Could be?

Fine spot in Worcester I found during The Festival. Had an absolutely superb selection of beers. Service was slightly slow, but in all liklihood this was due to the fact that the bar was absolutely slammed because of all the out of town business from The Festival. I bet on other weekends the service is much quicker. The food I tried was quite tasty and complementary of the beers on draft. Iíd go back when in Worcester for sure.

I can only hope to be present in such an acclomlished establishment again in my life. The food is done right from itís origins to the presentation of the plate. The food menu reads like someone very passionate is behind it, and it shows in the final product. The beers were all served at great temps and in fantastic and appropriate glassware. From sours to ipaís to stouts to lambics and gueuze to Belgian strongs and vintages all around, WOW have they gotcha covered! A comfortable place where you might want slap one of the staff on the bottom, but you wonít because youíll want to return for sure. Enjoy the professionalism and passion of these fine people. Cheers to the Armsby Abbey.
