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.

Solid place in wooster (wuh-ster) mass, parking is a bit of a struggle which is always a frustration to me, I tried to stop here the week before but was shut out due to a pearl jam concert, bartender was friendly and pointed out the giant chalkboard of drafts, pricing is a touch high but not unreasonable, bottle selection is tough to rival but INSANELY expensive (75 to 80 dollars for 750ís of Cantillon St. Lamvinus) but I guess some people will pay, My food was okay, I had the grilled cheese with sliced apples, it was well made, but a bit lacking in the filling department. I really enjoyed that there is only 1 TV on the far side of the bar, keeps it cozy and inviting. Would definitely go back once the taps had time to rotate.

Wow. Local meats, grass-fed beef, local cheese platters (lots of em!). In all, with a menu that makes it very difficult to choose (everything looks and sounds phenomenal), it almost dosent matter if the beer is good or not. But it is...of course. A varied draught selection with some very rare selections (had a Baladin Nora on draught!) and dedicated Belgian lines, a wonderful, descriptive (and properly grouped) bottle menu, you could easily make a weekend out of the abbey. Fantastic decor, classy, clean and well-lit during the day. Proper temperature on the bottles, via adjustable temperature beer coolers and immaculately clean, fresh beer lines. Alek (sp?) the owner, was very enjoyable to talk to as well. Capped it off with a DD Oerbier Reserva 2007. Will be comin back here soon, that’s for sure.

This place is ALL about the beer. I liken it to Julioís with stools. 21 taps with nothing but heavy hitting selections from Troegs, Cisco, 21 Ammendment, etc, etc. Much more selection in bottles too. Food is tasty - locally sourced ecclectic - more like "high end bar snacks" instead of a real meal. Itís a small room, with a brick wall on one side. Lots of character, but a little shiny. Food may be on the pricy side, but the beer prices actually seemed reasonable. My advice: go find someplace better to eat in Worcester (so much to choose from), and come here for drinks after.

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 (Jackís Abby, Tree House, Hill Farmstead). Food was really good (cheese plate and something else that I donít remember - but it was good!). Price are on the high side, but not unreasonable. This is a must visit when in the area and itís worth a trip just to go there. I will definitely come back.

A pretty cool little restaurant with a good beer selection. Had two of Struiseís Damnation series here, so that speaks to the good selection. It seems like their bottle selection may be lacking a little though. The service was very good, but Iím not really sure of their beer knowledge. They knew the products they had. The food was awesome - lentil and lamb soup. A little pricey overall though. Worth a visit.

one of the best beer bars iíve been to in central mass. few times i was there, the tap list was inconceivable -- there wasnít one beer on the list that i wasnít excited to try. any bar that can boast freigeist abbraxxxis on tap is a bar that i want to go to! oh, really great pizzas, too.

Smaller craft beer bar that looks very discrete from the outside, but once you get inside, you can see why it is well known. A good amount of beers on tap and huge bottle list. Some extremely rare beers on bottle and a great selection of local and more common good beers on tap. Prices are a bit steep but they can command the price with a selection like they have. Staff knew what they were doing and were very friendly. I talked to them about the CBS release and the last dark lord day. Fellow beer enthusiasts through and through.

I live an hour+ from here, so I canít believe itís taken me this long to check it out. What an amazing place. Incredible tap list. Incredible bottle selection. Food menu is limited, but very good. Everything is organic and from local farms. They tell you on the menu what farm itís from. Everything is delicious. The waitress we had was attentive, without being a pest, and knew her beer. Ya, itís a bit pricey, but if you want high end, you got to be prepared to pay for it.
