Located in a modern strip style shopping area. Large L shaped bar with 48 taps along the short end (your back to the door is sitting there), and floor level coolers along the long side filled with bottles. A very good selection of beer, no food of any kind; you can bring it in! Knowledgable bar tender gace advice on beers, I would say good but not great selection, but certainly something for everyone, especially when you include the bottle collection, which was pretty extensive. In an area apparently lacking in craft beer locations, this is a beacon of beer. I just thought that for a hop head, draft selections were light, but if in the area, give it a try.

Decent craft beer bar which is a welcome respite in an area seriously lacking in craft beer offerings. 48 taps and great bottle selection, notebooks on bar kept largely updated with descriptions to guide you to a selection. Draft selection is sometimes a little light on local (Florida, Southeastern) craft selections, but overall the selection is pretty good. Has a kind of industrial vibe with stainless bar, brick wall and polished concrete floor. Servers are really attentive and helpful. Best choice for craft beer in the Kissimmee area.

I really enjoy this place it never fails to have great collections of beers I favor. I love that it's pet friendly and the atmosphere is very laid back. I'm into a lot of lighter beers and House always comes through with my taste, as well as darker and 'hopier' brews.

I tried the House of Beer last night and the place is pretty swanky....a bit strip mally for my taste and doesnt have that traverny/bar feel. So the atmosphere is more personal preference. The quality is fine and service was helpful and knowledgable about the beers. The selection was great they had stuff from all over the US and many international beers. I thought the price was reasonable....$20 for three pints. Overall it was a good experience, I just prefer more character to a place than swank.

Whirlwind beer tour of Orlando as I was there on business, and found this place by recommendation of the bellhop.
The first thing I notice when I walk in are not the taps, but the man behind the counter, Charles. He opened this place and was very amiable (even after my friend spilled her wine all over him) and helpful with some of the beers I had not seen before. His recommendations were spot on for my palate, but he's French so it's what you would expect, right?
The beer list was an odd mix of styles, but I had no trouble finding 5 beers to do a flight, and my friend actually managed to find a completely different set of 5 to try (this is rare as we have similar tastes). After my flight, I asked Charles to recommend something and got a robust red ale that I really did love, and had never heard of.
The beers are affordable. The atmosphere is a little odd, dark and dreary in the middle of a fairly new boutiques and restaurants shopping plaza, but the people were friendly and the beer was great. They offer cigars as well, which is something you don't usually see in the craft beer world. Overall a great place, especially for beginners, since not too many beer dives in Orlando will do flights.
