Hard to find but worth looking for.

An excellent selection, especially on draft.

The bartender knows his stuff and made some great recommendations.

Can't remember all the beers they had, but it's as many as I've seen in one place in a while.

No food other than chips, that's the only complaint I had.

The atmosphere was like a, well, dive bar. Nothing fancy, a bar, some signs and some room, but a great beer selection. I only had an hour or so there, but could've spent a week just trying everything.

This is a really cool spot that is worth a visit, even if you have spent the night at the Abbey (make for a great nighcap). Although "divey" it is clean and safe and the service is friendly. Has 4-5 HF on tap, with some different options than the Abbey had. Be warned that is it CASH ONLY if you plan to stop by.

Small but cozy inside with a great, wide open patio that I can imagine is fun on a summer night. But in late October, it was just me...

Top-notch selection with Hill Farmstead always on as well as Tree House and other good local stuff. Prices are typical...$7 for a pint of HF. Staff is the expected grungy, slightly hipster but maybe emo type. Craft beer seems to attract a certain personality, haha. Anyway...I much prefer a place like this that has 20 consistently great beer choices as opposed to a place that has 100 and maybe 5-10 are worth the trip. Great spot!

Love this place. The inside part is a hole in the wall with a 15" tube TV and is cash only. That's about the only negative to this place. The tap list is normally outstanding, pricing is pretty cheap for the quality of beers, the bartenders tend to be a bit more friendly than their mates at Armsby and the outdoor patio area is outstanding in the warm weather.

Don't be fooled by the name or lack of signage, this is not a dive bar. It may have been at one point, but the new owners (who also happen to own Armsby Abbey) have transformed it into one of the best beer bars in Massachusetts. They have 10-15 top notch draft selections from around the country and a HUGE outdoor beer garden with hops growing around the perimeter. The hop trellises double as drink shelves. Beers are $6-$10 which is pricey for Worcester, but worth it. The only downside is that it's cash only.
