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.

Went day before and day after Zwanze while in Boston. Beer selection is top - four Hill Farmsteads on and later four Cantillons. Very friendly crew behind bar. Tried some high quality regional beer as well. Food was very good both times.

Visited with Mike Morse, after tree house. Medium sized space, interior is very wooden, rather dark. Service was friendly. not all beer experts, but good enough for what they do, absolutely. The tap list consisted of a great variety and awesome beers ( a new speedway variant, about 5 hill farmstead ,...) so we had no problems choosing beer here, accapt for the fact we had to limit ourselfs. Flights were available, so things got crazy ! Food was good, but not great, and perhaps I simply expected more of that. value was very agreeable. Worth going out to, if you are in the wider area, even if only for the great taplist.

Bar with (24?) taps, 20 seats along the one side, with a handful of tables on the other side. Taplist is very strong, and not even exclusively northeastern; came in for the Hill Farmstead but there was a lot of other choices. Bartenders good, knew their stuff, and friendly. Interestingly the bathrooms are in the next building over. Parking worked out, but it is only metered, and on the busy street. Big crowd at 4 on a work day, who seemed quite knowledgeable. Food mostly artisanal & nosh-y. Enjoyable place.

Upscale bar. Bartender was friendly. Well curated tap list... I was sipping on Hill Farmstead, TRVE and a local brewery. Food was tasty. Bartender was very helpful. Pricy overall. Parking was a pain, but I found a cheap meter a couple blocks away. Recommended stop.

First rate bar, the best I have been to in Boston. The only bar in Mas. that has Hill farmstead. Also Oxbow, Tired Hands, and of course Trillium. Perfect lines, great carbonation. On the way back to Canada from Boston.

It’s one of those restored dowtnown restaurant/pub things with the imposing wooden bar and the exposed brick wall. It’s downtown Worcester so parking could be an issue though I was able to find a spot in front of the Unitarian church. Top beer list with some breweries that aren’t exactly easy to find on draft. I didn’t get to partake of any food but I’ll definitely be back the next time I’m in town.

bigda83  (42) Jamestown, New York | June 10, 2016
Visited 3-17-16 right at open. It’s really nice inside, roomy, inviting. Service was on point, but we were early so I’m not sure how it is later in the evening or with big crowds. The waitress was constantly checking on us and seeing if we wanted anything more to drink. Tons of Hill Farmstead on tap at the time as well as plenty of local MA beers. Any beer fan will find something they like. Food was really good. It could be me, but it is more on the healthy upscale side of things. If you’re not into that then it may not be the best place to eat. I got pita and hummus to split with friends and then the pork sandwich with greens. Value was pretty on track with most places I’ve been to like this. It’s a little pricey, but it’s what you expect when going to a place with top tier beers on tap and having a few with food. Overall one of the nicest chill places to go. I highly recommend it and I’d go again any time I decide to do a beer trip to the area.

Definitely the best place I visited in Massachusetts. Amazing beers on tap, including five Hill Farmsteads and Speedway Vietnamese Coffee. Also had a last taste of a Pretty Things here. Roast pork sandwich was amazing. Good service as well. They serve flights of some of their beers, though not everything is available.

I love this place! 21 smart taps, at any given visit I want to try 19 of them, beats the hell out of searching through 50+ taps for two that are moderately interesting, food is on the money but a little overpriced even for how good it is. just a little... friendly, accessible, not overwhelming, and again, 21 taps that put the average 121 taps to shame

chibuck  (588) Chicago, Illinois | July 2, 2015
Amazing bar in a sleepy town, these are some lucky locals. 6 Hill Farmsteads on tap, along with a Fiddlehead, and tons of other rare and or great ticks. Amazingly, they offer samplers as well. This is a tickers haven, with the added bonus that the beers are amazing. The marinated olives were excellent, but a couple other dished like the turnip and wings flopped. The one marrow was good but kind of missing on the marrow. A bit pricey for the food but decent overall. Amazing beer, decent food, but a bit over priced. Drink here, eat elsewhere.
