WOB is a seriously great place to get your hands on beers you just couldn't know exist. Weekend night crowds are expectedly thick, but with beers in hand you'll be in good spirit.

I think the reviews already given here say it all. The only thing that I would add, or emphasis because someone did mention it, is that it doesn't really look like the other World of Beer locations. It's smaller, a little less polished, louder (perhaps because of the size, or perhaps because of the crowd - it seems like the young crowd comes here to party, bouncing back and forth across the street with Maloney's), and more like a sports bar (that also has live music). Behind the bar looks great with 9 stainless steel glass front cooler doors of bottles, and multiple taps lined up - just as you'd expect, and I do like the outdoor seating as well. It's comfortable, and shaded after noon, although it could be a little more scenic considering it looks out at Linebaugh Avenue. In the end I'd give it a try, at least you'll be able to get some good beer. Note: you can also get food brought in to you from the neighboring shops.

Located in a newer shopping plaza in Westchase. The place has a bunch of TVs for watching sports events, high tables and chairs and the bar section. The staff is very knowledgeable for the most part and they make sure you are being served and you have everything you need. The selection is excellent, this place has beers from all around the world and a bunch of hard to find stuff can be found here. Prices are reasonable and similar to other places of this kind. From time to time they have events such as small bands playing and such.

Recommended for those looking for a good beer selection from around the world.

This bar is located in what looks like a small upscale shopping center. It does have that generic sports bar look, and on a quiet Saturday afternoon, the music was too loud. Still, it had a nice feel to it. Entering, there's a cooler with a ton of bottled beers on the left and a few high top tables on the right. The bar proper is in a little further, on the left, with a small alcove on the right. There's a loft for private parties above the bar. An outdoor patio that looks over a busy street completes the picture. Several TVs, lots of beer memorabilia decorate the place. WOB only serves beer, but you can order off of menus from any of a half dozen local restaurants, and they will deliver your food to you in the bar.

The selection is huge: 30 beers on tap and 400 or so bottles. You can buy beers to go and you can mix and match 6packs, but you can't get any growlers. The tap selection was varied enough that I had difficulty choosing which beers I wanted. My wife was happy because they had a selection of hefes and fruity beers, which she enjoys.

Despite the fact that our server looked about twelve years old, she was courteous, efficient, and very knowledgeable. The place was moderately busy, and she was the only one working, but kept up well.

I will make sure I visit WOB whenever I visit my daughter in Tampa.
