• Worcester breweries dedicate beer to fallen firefighter


    WORCESTER, Mass. - Two brewers in central Massachusetts are teaming up to help the family of fallen Worcester Firefighter Christopher Roy.

    Wachusett and Wormtown are launching a beer called Worcester’s Bravest.

    All of the proceeds from the beer sales will be donated to the Ava Roy Fund, which was set up to support Roy’s 9-year-old daughter.

    Worcester’s Bravest will be released on draft in the tap rooms at Wachusett Brewing Company in Westminster and Wormtown Brewery in Worcester on Feb. 1.

    A limited amount of cans will also be available.

    The event will kick-off with a bag pipe band and special guests.

    Roy was killed last month while fighting an early morning fire in Worcester. 

    The 36-year-old had been on with the Worcester Fire Department for two years.
