The name of this place is so perfect and it described exactly what it was. That being said - my kinda place!

The bartender knew her beer and was clearly passionate about it. Sixteen taps total and three of those were from Hill Farmstead = impressive (especially that far South). Pulling lines from local brewers = very cool. No crappy taps here and come with a pocket full of change because it's cash only!

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!

I've stopped in here several times and it's never a bad experience. The dim lighting and musty smell really emphasize the Dive Bar vibe. The tap selection is always above par. The service has always been very good too. It's definitely a chill spot in a kind of dumpy area of town but still worth checking out, and yes it's CASH ONLY, so be prepared.

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.
