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 lovers, 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.

Upcoming Events

Jon Bonner

January 28th 6-9pm

Worcester's own Jon Bonner lays down a gravelly, full-throated brand of country-blues that's both cathartic and engaging.

Carlos Odria

February 11th 6-9pm

Carlos Odria is a guitarist, composer, and scholar. His music embodies a blend of Latin American folk music, Spanish flamenco, jazz, and Afro-Peruvian rhythms, among other influences. Originally from Lima, Peru, Carlos moved to the United States in the early 2000s and has been an active performer since his arrival.

Hip Swayers

February 18th 6-9pm

Hailing from the hills of West Tatnuck, the Hip Swayers are a quality, good time, get up and dance band that combine tight rhythms, searing solos and soulful harmonies in an eclectic mix of originals and covers, encompassing straight ahead roots rock with a country flavor.

Zack Slik

March 4th 6-9pm

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.

Matt Robert

March 18th 6-9pm

Matt Robert has been playing live music throughout New England since the mid 1980s. His current solo show features acoustic guitar, mandolin, harmonica, and occasional banjo on an eclectic batch of originals and covers.

Too Tight Jug Band

April 1st 6-9pm

Jug band music evolved in the 1920's and 30's, and was designed from the beginning to attract crowds at medicine shows and street corners. It is still some of the most engaging music you could hope to hear. The Too Tight Jug Band pays tribute to this form and to the great musicians who invented it.

Highway's End

April 29th 6-9pm

Highway's End is an acoustic band based in Rhode Island. Their songs mix country music storytelling with the flash and musicianship of bluegrass and heavy metal guitar heroes.

Kat Kennedy

May 6th 6-9pm

Kat Kennedy began performing around her home state of Connecticut at the age of 7. Since then she has performed at venues across the country, sparking a love of music and performance that led her to Berklee College of Music in Boston. It was there that she found her current singer/songwriter, pop folk style.

James Keyes

May 27th 6-9pm

With little more than an acoustic guitar and his low growl of a voice, James Keyes has been plying his trade for years in the taverns and bar rooms of New England. His music is a modern version of an old tradition steeped in folk and blues, and on hearing his songs you'll be taken to another time in American history when songwriters traveled the country by thumbing rides and hopping trains, playing for beers and whatever folks could afford to throw in the hat.

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.
