WHAT DOES THE NAME WORMTOWN REPRESENT TO YOU? We were a tiny brewery in a tough part of town working our asses off doing whatever it took to bust out great tasting flavorful beers. There was definitely an attitude, we were proud of what we did what we were able to produce. You could say there was a culture developed in the brewery of caring about what we made, what we did, and how we did it.
