“Great selection of draft and bottled beers”
Review of World of Beer - CLOSED

World of Beer
Cuisines: American
Restaurant details
Reviewed July 10, 2014

Been here a couple of times, mainly for beer, but also ate on both occasions. Found the selection of craft beers to be very good. I only drank drafts, but the bottled beer list looked pretty impressive also, as does the sight of all the bottles displayed in back of the bar. They rotate the taps daily, so there's always a chance of finding something different on recent return visits.

WOB's draft beer selection includes standards like Sam Adams, Guinness, Abita, Long Trail, etc., but it is comprised mostly of beers from lesser-known breweries, which is something I very much like to experience. I like to try out different hefeweizens and stouts (Guinness being my favorite), and the good ample selections at WOB allow me to do so.

The "tavern fare" of food items is just okay. It's adequate for the type of place this is. The food is something to fill your stomach while you enjoy the beers. I did like the wings and the flatbread pizzas. For their sandwiches, I have tried the Guinness Brat Sliders and the Reuben; both are okay.

Last time I was there, I was with a group of about 15. The price per person came to $40, which I thought was pretty expensive, although we did drink a lot of beers and ate a lot of food. I wouldn't be surprised if the bar portion of the bill was larger than the food portion.

They put together a couple of long tables for us, with bar stools. The seating was a bit uncomfortable for me, especially for several hours (I prefer to have seat backs because of my bad back), but they also do have a couple of booths.

The location is where the old Soho Restaurant used to be a few years ago. Parking on the street can be difficult to find; it's mostly metered parking for 2 hrs max. Better alternative is to use of the parking decks just a couple of blocks away. They have several large-TV screens that are mostly tuned to sports channels.

We visited a couple of times, they have an excellent selection of beers, both draft and in bottles. They are quick to bring samplers making the selection somewhat easier. Very good service.

A modern sports bar with large screens and somewhat noisy, more of a party bar than a place to have a good conversation over beer.
