Located in a really nice area of Worcester, though getting here means you probably travel through any number of rough areas. As beer drinkers and travelers, we're really lucky there are so many nice breweries and brewpubs to visit. This place is an updated industrial building with lots of light and a modernized taproom. There's a patio but being here in February, it obviously wasn't being used. Attentive and knowledgeable staff and a great selection of 10 taps. Diverse crowd of all ages enjoying pints and filling growlers. A super old dude came in to fill his growler...gotta love the local beer scene!

I went down to Wormtown today and was pleasantly surprised by the space; it helped that we were there at 2pm on a sunny Wednesday and it wasn't that busy, but the tap room/outside patio was a pretty sweet combination. The bartender, (can't remember his name; red head with a beard) was quite friendly and knowledgeable about the beer and even altered the playlist to skip songs with explicit lyrics. And then there was the beer... The DIPA was stellar and the X version was even better. I also enjoyed there strong ale; it was complex but not overwhelming. Of course I left being hoppy! I will definitely go again.

Visited the Wormtown with a friend: the beer went down smooth, the service friendly, the outdoor seating a big plus too! Parking was readily available which is no small thing in Worcester.

This place is has an amazing line up of beers to try and buy to bring home. They have some bottles but mostly growlers. Mind you the growlers are filled professionally with a CO2 machine.

The Wormtown brewery is a fairly nice, modern spot, a touch on the loud side. There's a decent selection of their brews on tap, as well as in cans and growlers to go. Armsby is a much better bet for pure beer nirvana, but don't miss out on visiting Wormtown while you're here.

Easy to find and nice spot. Great selection of good beers and a couple outstanding beers. Staff was nice enough but let's just say I could tell I was in mass. Too rainy to sit outside but it looked like it would be a nice spot. I'll be back! Mainly because I bought a bunch of growlers and they'll be empty soon.

Very good selection with a focus on IPA's. Very good beer at excellent prices. Laid back atmosphere allows you to make friends quickly. Many beers use 'newer' hops, El Dorado and such, so if you like them, you will love their beer.

The new brewery/tasting room on Shrewsbury Street is open. Beautiful place, I had a pint and a growler fill of Be Hoppy, which was a bit pricey and only available in small growlers. Packed room, yet service was very quick and efficient. A place like Treehouse Brewery could learn something here!

Currently they are attached to Peppercorn's restaurant. Weird in that you go into the restaurant to get some Wormtown beer, but they are moving to Shrewsbury St in Worcester to a great location. Their beer is solid, with a couple of excellent offerings (Be Hoppy, Be Hoppier, Norm). Parking is no problem and pricing is spot on.
