  • LPT from Reddit: (updated 10/1/20)
 

  1. When wearing a tie on a windy day, slip a coin down the inside of the hem to keep the tie from blowing around.
  2. When you sign up for anything online, put the website’s name as your middle name. That way when you receive spam/advert emails, you will know who sold your info.


  • Bad Yelp Review - Redemption:
 

  1. Steven B. - Boston, MA (Worcester location)

    1. A very small, cozy brewery located next to a restaurant. I recommend the tasting as you will get to keep your sample glass. The samples you get to try will vary from day to day depending on which beers are on tap.
 

  1. Concession IPA- Bitter and hoppy. Unfortunately, I did not find this IPA terribly appealing.
 

  1. Double bock--Caramel and whiskey. Like a barley wine. Nice smooth finish.  This was the highlight of the tasting.
 

  1. Cafe session stout--thinner consistency than most stouts. Distinct Coffee complexity. Reminds me of cold brew. It's a refreshing stout.
 

  1. Double Mando DIPA--Strong hoppy flavor with a nice bitterness that lingers in the tongue. Pine note. Thin consistency. Decent DIPA.
 

  1. Park Ave porter--a little malty but not much. But, I found the flavor dull and watery. Satisfactory, but not much going on here.
 

    1. Like most breweries, the brews can be hit or miss. Double Bock alone is worth a visit. Flying Dreams gets a recommendation.
    1. came here by accident, meant to go to the Worcester location. I personally was on the hunt for their sour beers but none were on tap so I asked for water while my boyfriend got drinks. There were 4 of us in total here and the girl never came back with my water or to check in on my boyfriend. He finally put his empty glass very obviously forward so he could get another beer and she came. I asked for water again and never got it. I get its a brewery and perhaps I annoyed her by not drinking l, but blatantly ignoring 50% of your customers sucks. it's also in an odd space with lawyers offices.
