Armsby Abbey

A recent vacation to Worcester, Massachusetts to visit my mom also included a visit to Armsby Abbey. The quaint setting located at the corner of Main and School Street in historic downtown Worcester offered up friendly service not to mention a wide selection of tasty brews. The Abbey features 22 rotating taps (with 6 dedicated to Belgian beers) and some 140 bottled beers from all over the country. Recently having celebrated their one year anniversary Armsby Abbey has received a plethora of “Best of Worcester” awards including “Best New Restaurant”, and “Best Beer Selection”. Speaking as a recent patron, the place did not disappoint. Wanting to try a local New England brew, I went with Allagash Brewing of Maine’s White; a perfect beer to combat the traditional muggy weather outside. Bartender Kyle Warren offered up his knowledge of Abbey selections to help this beerdrinker’s wife choose a smooth St. Bernardus Wit Bier. It is my recommendation that whether you hail from central Mass, or are visiting the area you be sure to wet the palate with an artisan brew oasis otherwise known as Armsby Abbey.
