No food here so plan to start or end here. Excellent choices in the same building for dinner if you so desire.

They are on the pricey side, so be prepared. Follow them for tap takeovers and special tastings.

This is a go-to in our area if you're looking for the biggest selection of spirits. Last year they started serving craft whiskey and and have ongoing changes in their menus (which is about 9 pages long) to accommodate seasonal brews. They have an enormous menu that encompasses any kind of beer you can think of. Their selection of Belgian and German beers cannot be matched (my personal fave). The service can sometimes be lacking, but they can also get pretty busy. Some nights they also have live music and their outdoor seating area is wonderful. They also have a cigar menu. They have TV's inside if you're looking to watch a game. Great place for happy hour, to meet a friend, and have a pizza, subs or chinese delivered. They encourage you to bring any food in you want and there are restaurants near there like Brueggers, Zoe's Kitchen that you can hop on over to grab something.

World of Beer is a fun place to go to. Obviously there are tons of beers (draft and bottled) to choose from. It's a little pricey and the service can be questionable when it's crowded. There isn't enough seating but luckily almost every time I've gone we've gotten lucky with seats. It's nice to go to while waiting to go to dinner (Cowfish right next door) but I wish it was closer to DT Raleigh because it would be an awesome place to grab a drink at before going out.

Nice location. They have a huge selection of beer and the staff are very knowledgeable in helping you decide on a beer that you would enjoy. The place is clean for the most part. Above the bar on the second floor is where the band plays and it can become really loud on certain nights. You can also sit outside on a nice day if you like. Cannot say I've tried their food, but a lot of beer choices have been on my tab. If you're wanting a local beer... this is not the place for you.

My husband likes different beers and he actually smiled when we saw all the beers they have. I was the DD so didn't drink. You can even buy beer to go. If looking for great beer, place to go
