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.

My first trip to Armsby was Zwanze Day 2014, it will not be my last. The service was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the beer and what they have in bottle and draft. The food was real pricey based on the potion. ($15.00 for seven Jerk Chicken Wings) So, I would eat before stopping back here but because of the awesome draft list and friendly service, there is a REAL good chance I will return here. Keep in mind I was here for an event so I would love to see what this place looks like on a standard Saturday afternoon.

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.

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 they’re still cool. Side note: I am also one of those people. It’s 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 Jack’s Abbey, as well as some more common offerings that you’ll 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.

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.

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 wasn’t there the first time I went here. Service has been good, but I’ve never been there when it’s 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.

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 750’s 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.

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.

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. I’ll visit again if Im near Worcester.
