What began in an ice cream shop on Park Ave in Worcester, Wormtown brewery officially opened on March 17, 2010 and support came quickly with restaurants like Flatbread (Sommerville), Horseshoe Pub, Peppercorn’s and Prezo’s carrying their beers early on. Then the awards started coming in. Medals at the GABF & GIBF that first year. A World Beer Cup Silver the third year. More GIBF medals, Denver International Beer Fest gold medal and the ultimate honor to date: The Grand National Champion at the US Open Beer Championships with 3 Gold Medals and a Silver in Atlanta.
Finally in January ’15, after 13 months of construction and almost 5 years crammed in an ice cream stand, Wormtown brewed their first beer in their new location on Shrewsbury St, in the heart of Worcester. The new facility allows us to make A LOT more great beer and allowed them to start selling beer to package stores in meaningful quantities. And you’ll get to try some of their brews at Hop Jam this year!
