A pretty cool little restaurant with a good beer selection. Had two of Struise’s 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 I’m 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.

Was there for stoutfest 2011, any bar that can get founders CBS,KBS, black biscuit, 5 struise stouts, etc... is a perfect bar. Can’t wait till I go again when they have their regular beers on tap. Delicious! Dropping my rating, over time the selection has deteriorated and prices have skyrocketed. Always has high and mighty on draft which is disgusting.

An amazing number of beers on tap and even more in the bottle. Also keep an eye out for beers they personally age. No TVs, service with a smile and the food is exceptional even if there aren’t a lot of options.

Beau petit endroit avec beaucoup de cachet. Peu de place, mais si vous arrivez asser tot, vous pourrez avoir une table rapidement. Vous pouvez prendre une petite bière au bar en attendant. Le service est très bon et rapide. Bonne petite sélection de bière en fut et grande sélection en bouteille. Les prix en bouteille sont, par contre, asser dispendieux. Nous avons pu déguster une Cuvée de Tomme à 58$. Plusieurs bières asser rare à trouver et certaines vieillies. La nourriture est très bonne, mais n’y allez pas pour des ailes de poulet et des burgers. Leurs assiettes de fromages sont excellentes. Un incontournable si vous êtes dans la région.

This place is ALL about the beer. I liken it to Julio’s 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. It’s 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.

Hands down and straight up. This place has more tasty beers packed into it than should be allowed by the laws if physics. I go there all the time, and there’s always something new on tap. Just set yourself a budget before walking in, or it could become a really expensive evening.

When seeking that unusual, hard-to-find beer at even the best beer stores, this is one of the best beer bars I’ve seen. As the name would suggest, there are many, many Belgians and Belgian style beers. But I also had a couple of unusual IPA’s. The beer list huge, but what is REALLY impressive is the phenomenal selection of glassware--tulip glasses, goblets, pints, etc., etc. Often the beer is served in the glass of the brewer, which is amazing. I’ve been told the food (particularly the pizza) is very good, which makes sense since half of the place is a restaurant. There were close to two dozen on-tap offerings in addition to the 100+ bottled beers. A couple of regulars let me know that the on-tap offerings are always changing. What surprised me the most, though, was the number of beers I haven’t seen or never even heard of. And after 1,450 tastings, I was shocked that this place was within an hour of my home. As Arnold might say, "I’ll be back."

Incredible addition to Worcester. Beer selection is incredible and they have recently added a website to check before getting there. The food is local and there are two great cheese plates. The evening can become expensive compared to other restaurants, but you are getting beer on tap that you can’t elsewhere. No babies allowed, which limits new parents.
