As Wormtown Brewery gets ready to celebrate 11 years in business, the Worcester beer hub is giving itself a birthday present: a brand new taproom.
On March 17 at noon, Wormtown will debut a 4,000-square-foot taproom in the same building as its old taproom and patio, which are currently closed to the public. The new addition, also located at 72 Shrewsbury St., is set to offer 14 lines of beer, an expanded small plates menu, and a rotating lineup of pop-ups. First up: Peppercorn’s, which will be on site throughout the opening weekend. When a pop-up isn’t scheduled, Wormtown will partner with Volturno Pizza, offering diners their full menu of pizzas, pastas, salads, and more.
While Wormtown has thrown its own birthday party on March 17 in previous years, the brewery will host a pared-down, socially distanced celebration instead, inviting a limited number of guests on a first come, first served basis.
“While we can’t host our normal birthday bash this year, we are really excited to show everyone our new taproom and a small preview of the kind of events we can throw once it is safe again,” David Fields, managing partner at Wormtown Brewery, shared in a press release.
Wormtown was founded in 2010 and moved to the Shrewsbury Street location in 2015. In addition to its upcoming taproom, the brewery also has a taproom at 250 Patriot Place in Foxborough. As for the old taproom on Shrewsbury Street, a representative for the brewery shared that they plan to reopen it sometime in the spring, even if it’s just the outdoor patio that opens.
