About 3cross

Our 5,500 square foot space in the basement of 26 Cambridge Street houses a spacious taproom, our "brewing nook" and lots of space for expansion. Our focus is on serving our community and we want to be known as a local, Worcester brewery. Our taproom will always come first and it's unlikely that you'll ever see 3cross beer sold too far from Worcester.

Our name references the classic spoke lacing pattern for a biycle wheel and you'll find elements of bicycle lore and culture throughout the brewery. Since we're cyclists as well as beer geeks, we aim to make 3cross the ideal place to end your next ride. Of course, we also aim to be the perfect place for anyone to enjoy a fresh, local beer.

Zack Slik brings you good old-time back-porch Americana roots music. Switching between mandolin, 5-string banjo, and guitar, accompanying himself with harmonica and a stomping foot. Sticking close to tradition, Zack cultivates old tunes adding his own arrangements to some well seasoned classics as well as performing original material hand carved from the same tree. It is music set to get your feet a tappin', your smile wide and your mind in another place in time.

What to Expect

Ordering

We offer beer in 125mL tasters and full pours to drink here, as well as 750mL and 2L growlers to bring home with you. Our selection of beer is a constant rotation and you'll rarely see the same lineup on two subsequent visits. When you get here we suggest ordering a sample flight of the beers we currently have on tap. Once you've had a chance to taste, perhaps put an order in for some growlers to go and a pint to savor while you're waiting for your order to be filled. Your growlers will be waiting for you at the register whenever you're ready to depart.

Seating

We have some seating available at the bar for those visiting in ones and twos and tables around the corner for those in larger parties. We do our best to make it back to the tables to clear your empties and take additional orders, but when things get busy your best bet is to come order at the bar.

Food

We don't serve food in our taproom. Our focus is on making the best beer we possibly can. However, you are more than welcome to bring food with you to nosh on while you're here. There are a number of restaurants to order from within a small radius of our location, there's a full supermarket within easy walking distance and we invite food trucks to park in our lot from time to time.

Parking

Being a bike themed brewery we hope that you'll ride down to 3cross whenever possible. We have plenty of places to stash your bike inside. We have a good-sized parking lot available for those of you driving, but it does fill up when it gets busy. There is also limited on-street parking, but please be considerate of our neighbors.

Hours

Sunday - Wednesday - closed
Thursday - 5pm - 9pm
Friday - 5pm - 9pm
Saturday - 5pm - 9pm

Getting Here

Our taproom is located in the basement of 26 Cambridge Street, at the rear of the building. Our parking lot and entrance are located on Knowlton Avenue. For those of you who've been in Worcester a while, we're in the space that was home to Playoff Entertainment. We're admittedly a little hard to find, but promise that it's worth the effort!
