Welcome to Sturbridge, MA!

Sturbridge is a vibrant town located at the crossroads of New England.  Long before the first English settlers came to Massachusetts, the Native Americans called this place Tantiousques and knew it well as the place where the Bay Path and the Connecticut Path met.  Today these early thoroughfares have been replaced by the Massachusetts Turnpike, Routes 20 and 131 and Interstate 84, and many travelers still pass through our town each day.

Bobbi and Matt have opened a new gallery
of contemporary, outsider, modern and tribal art
in Quincy, Massachusetts.

Amazing art and great people make a awesome combination!

It all began in an ice cream shop on Park Ave in Worcester.  

Ben, who was brewing and selling beer for Honest Town Brewing, in Southbridge MA, had a vision for a brick and mortar brewery in his home town of Worcester.  Tom was trying to figure out what to do with the addition on his restaurant that was the home to Peppercorn’s Ice Cream Factory.  After a few pints on a bar stool one night a plan was formed to start a brewery that would be committed to being local both in our imagery and our ingredients.

After securing an SBA Loan from BayState Savings Bank with the help from The Clark University Business Development Center, a 10 barrel brew house was ordered.  The walk in cooler from the ice cream stand would store the beer and an ice cream freezer would keep the hops fresh.  All that was left was to make some beer and name the brewery.

Seven Hills Session Pale Ale was an easy tribute to Worcester and was going to be the flagship brand.  Be Hoppy, Worcester’s Bravest Wit and Turtle Boy Blue rounded out the names for our first beers.  Maybe Worcester Brewing Company?

The brewery officially opened on March 17, 2010 and we really weren’t sure what to expect. Worst case we’d have a lot of beer to share with our friends!  But support came quickly with restaurants like Flatbread (Sommerville), Horseshoe Pub, Peppercorn’s and Prezo’s carrying our beers early on.  Then the awards started coming in.  Medals at the GABF & GIBF that first year.  A World Beer Cup Silver the third year.   More GIBF medals, Denver International Beer Fest gold medal and the ultimate honor to date:  The Grand National Champion at the US Open Beer Championships with 3 Gold Medals and a Silver in Atlanta.

Brewing is a labor of love and it wasn’t easy to get started.  Some of our favorite setbacks make great stories we love to tell. Just ask anyone of us about the story behind Elm Park Amber Ale (it may have been a mistake), Beer Goggles (ditto) or about the first time we pushed spent grains through our automated system in the new brewery (there is still some on the ceiling).

Finally in January ’15, after 13 months of construction and almost 5 years crammed in an ice cream stand, we brewed our first beer in our new location on Shrewsbury St.  Located in the heart of Worcester the new facility allows us to make A LOT more great beer.  It allows us to start selling beer to package stores in meaningful quantities.  It will allow us to expand our geographic footprint when the time is right.  But most importantly it provided us with space to build our awesome WT TapRoom that overlooks our entire brewing ‘pit’ as we call it.  Customers can come have a pint while they wait for a growler and we get a chance to hang out with them while they enjoy our beer – and that’s why we brew – to make great beer and enjoy it with all of our friends, some old and many, many new ones.

Wait the name?  Well Wormtown was simply way cooler than Worcester Brewing Company.  And it allows us to have a little 3 decker attitude that we can put into our beers!

My name is Shane Bouchard. I am the owner of Maine Home Recreation. I have a passion for all of the games we sell and I love what I do. I’m one of those lucky people who go to and come home from work happy on a daily basis. Like many things in life, it all happened quite by accident. We opened a retail showroom and early in 2014 started selling new pool tables and games in addition to the used products we offer. From there we acquired warehouse space and now have a larger showroom and warehouse that we work out of. We cover a large area, use high quality materials, warranty our service work for life, have fair prices and treat people right. We grow by leaps and bounds every year and are confident that this formula will lead us to further expansion and the next chapter for Maine Home Recreation.

Welcome to Pinball Plating.

The Next Generation Playfield Protector is made of Vivak (PET-G), which allows us to reduce thickness and improve the edges by using CNC lasers instead of CNC molding cutters. The new surface is now even more transparent while still being glossy.

Our playfield protectors are precut protectors, which fit individually to each pinball machine type.

Forget about mylar, which offers just a partial protection and can be very, very hard to be removed without damaging your precious playfield.

Forget about clearcoating – clearcoating is, if correctly done, a long term project. Your pinball machine is out of service for several months. You have to level your inserts and still there can be air between the insert and the clearcoat which can result in unwanted „intransparent“ areas. And clearcoating is no protection to avoid dimples!
