Went to the brewery on 7/11/15 since I was in the area. The area is literally in the middle of nowhere, but once you get there the place was nice enough with a pretty good crowd drinking on a Saturday afternoon. Vibe was mellow as a lot of people were in the tasting room trying samples and filling growlers, and to me most seemed like locals who visit on a regular basis. Some beer geeks mixed in who were analyzing each sip, but that's any brewery now a days. They had at least 8-10 beers on tap and a good selection and representation of what they brew.

I had heard good things about Larry so I expected some pretty good beers here, so once I started having samples I was rather disappointed. Larry was OK at best, the regular IPA was average and the Green Monsta IPA was the tastiest offering IMO. I bought a can and a bottle to go on the way out so I could taste some of the regular lineup, but Larry was a big let down...at least on the day I went.

Service was good. They had 3 girls filling growlers and serving samples, 2 quite nice and 1 just not the type of attitude I'd expect at a brewery. They were attentive enough, and were quick to fill the "Wicked Big Can", which is a 32 oz can growler by Ball Corp. that they seal right there at the brewpub bar. The "Wicked Big Can" made the trip worth it, I thought it was a great concept and a nice new spin on buying fresh beer. Hats off to Wachusett for the originality - the "Wicked Big Can" was inexpensive and will stay fresh longer than a growler.

Can't beat free tastings! Tasting room is kind of small and is standing only. Seating is only available for the first few minutes of the tour. Still totally worth it. Wachusett beers are classic in New England.
