Armsby Abbey represents the new wave of boutique beer bars. There are 22 taps and an unconnected TV mounted by the bar, which runs down the right side of this cozy establishment with its exposed brick and polished wood, dim lighting and high ceiling. The selection of handcrafted libations rotates quickly because of the bar’s high volume and the limited quantity of many of the high-quality beers, six of which are always Belgian brews. The list of bottled beers numbers 180 and the wine list has offerings from small vineyards in New England and the West Coast. The spirits are all from artisan distilleries and frequently combined with fresh fruit to make bold and refreshing "Righteous Cocktails."
