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.
