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.
Join us for a casual, but spirited road ride starting and ending at 3cross! Most riders will be on road or hybrid bikes. Average pace 13-15 mph over 15-25 miles. Ride leaves promptly at 6:00. Helmets required. Lights optional, but encouraged! And don't forget to stop in for a "recovery drink" in the taproom afterwards!
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.
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.
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.
A big punch of tropical hop character belies this IPA's sessionability. 4.5% abv

Kombucha is an ancient elixir made by the fermentation of tea and sugar to create a refreshing probiotic drink. A healthy dose of yeast and bacteria transform the all-organic ingredients into a tasty tart and sweet beverage.
Our housemade soda syrups are made from fresh ingredients and organic sugar. We mix them to order by the glass in traditional soda fountain style.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
