WORCESTER – The food and drink scene in Worcester is as vibrant as ever, especially for beer enthusiasts looking to try some local ale. These new brew spaces aren’t only just offering drinks though. Many bring in food vendors, live music, and local artists to create a destination that’s more than just beer.
This holiday weekend there are two craft breweries featuring local artists as part of the “draw.”
Wormtown Brewery, in partnership with the Worcester PopUp, has begun an Artist In Residency Program where local creatives are invited to visually transform their space by painting a mural for guests to enjoy. Currently on display is “Hop Dance” by John Vo. In addition to the murals, the collaboration is offering a series of Drink & Draw events as a way of bringing people to this style of pop-up gallery. A casual event like Drink & Draw offers an environment to relax, enjoy a beer, meet the artist, sketch a little, and connect through art. The next Drink & Draw with John Vo is on June 19 at 6:30 PM at Wormtown.
Wormtown Brewery is located at 72 Shrewsbury Street, Worcester. You can visit their website at www.wormtownbrewery.com for more information about the murals, upcoming events, and the beer.
