Rye Whiskey in Worcester Area?

I was wondering if anyone knows of a bar or restaurant that serves rye whiskey. I've found it in several liquor stores, but have yet to see it in a bar. Anywhere in a 30 mile radius of Worcester would be best. Thanks!

  1. The Greyhound in Kelley Square.

    1. I would assume yu could get Canadian Club, Seagram's VO or Crown Royal in almost any bar or restaurant in Worcerester., If you are restricting yourself to US brands such as Old Overholt the search would be harder

        Thanks, I should have been clearer. I am talking about American Ryes like Van Winkle, Redemption, etc.

      2. I'd check The Citizen first, Armsby Abbey second. Both are in Worcester.

        Armsby Abbey
        144 Main Street, Worcester, MA

          Armsby is more of a beer place. Citizen isn't whisky-specific. Paul at The Greyhound is VERY knowledgable when it comes to whiskies. He has a great selection. Whisky is kind of the hook to his whole place.

            I never said either Armsby or Citizen were whisky-centric. I just said they may have what the OP is looking for. Calm down, dude: no one's poo-pooing on your suggestion.

              Agreed. Armsby is an epic beer bar. Citizen is great for all around cocktails. The Greyhound has whiskeys of all type, but Arsmby and Citizen can hook the OP up with some good Rye, which was what he was after. It's always good to have options when it comes to drinking

              1. re: tboom29

                Per Citizen's bar manager, they have Old Overholt, Rittenhouse, Rendezvous and Redemption.

        2. Yes to the Citizen and Armsby. Dive Bar also has a nice selection of booze, mostly the same as the Abbey I think.

          1. Greyhound definitely lists at the very least one type of Rye on their menu, Citizen and Armsbey Abbey don't (at least that I could see), which doesn't necessarily mean anything, and since they were recommended, I'll definitely check them out. Thanks for the suggestions!
