Armsby Abbey Owners to Open Conico in Hudson

by Marc Hurwitz

The people behind an award-winning beer bar in Worcester are opening a new place, and this one is a bit closer to Boston.

According to an article in the Worcester Business Journal, Alec Lopez and Sherri Sadowski of Armsby Abbey are planning to open Conico on Main Street in Hudson, with the husband-and-wife team stating (via a Facebook post) that this will not be a second Armsby Abbey location (there has been some chatter about this), though it is not known exactly what the concept will be as of yet.

Armsby Abbey, which first opened in 2008, has gained national recognition over the years, according to the Mass Foodies site, while the bar's website mentions that it has won 66 Best of Worcester awards. The place is known for its extensive list of local, national, and international beers and is also perhaps the only spot within an hour of the Boston area to offer beers from Hill Farmstead in Vermont (Hill Farmstead is considered to be one of the best brewers in the country). Another spot in Worcester called The Dive Bar is under the same ownership as well.

Thanks to a source for bringing the upcoming opening of Conico to our attention.

[March 5 update: Boston Magazine states that Conico plans to feature modern takes on traditional Mexican food, with the focus being on masa (a corn-based dough) including such options as tamales, tacos, mole, and more. The article says that while a "wonderful, serious selection" of beers will be offered at the upcoming spot, tequila and mezcal will be front and center as well, so expect a variety of cocktails to be offered.]
