A popular Massachusetts brewery is moving forward with plans to open a brewery and taproom at Patriot Place in Foxborough.
Worcester-based Wormtown Brewery announced Wednesday it had entered into an agreement with Maynard-based Battle Road Brewery, which previously operated a 4,000 square-foot space last fall at Patriot Place under the name Battle Road Hop Up.
Under the agreement, Wormtown will build a new taproom in the space formerly occupied by the Battle Road pop-up and "bring the production of the Battle Road brand under the management of Wormtown."
"Being able to bring our brewery to the fans of the New England Patriots, New England Revolution and concertgoers from all over is an amazing opportunity for us," said Wormtown managing partner David Fields. "In addition, Patriot Place has incredible year-round foot traffic and we are looking forward to bringing great local beer to the Foxborough area."

According to Battle Road managing partner Greg Hill, the brewery had been seeking a strategic partner to assist in their operations.
"We have a strong background in the retail side of our operation, but ultimately wanted to improve in the area of making great and innovative beers," said Hill. "I have known the guys from Wormtown for a long time and reached out to them about this exciting opportunity for a brewery and taproom at Patriot Place."
The 2,500-square-foot taproom, which is slated to open this summer, will feature an outdoor seating area. It will also feature a seven-barrel brewing system that will produce both Wormtown and Battle Road beers.
"Craft brewers are in huge demand and this concept provides our guests a great opportunity to socialize while enjoying uniquely, and locally, crafted beers brewed specifically for this location," said said Brian Earley, vice president and general manager of Patriot Place.
