I stopped here on a recent trip to orlando. It was recommended by a friend and I was able to catch a world series game there. Overall it had a frat bar feel to it. A long serpentine bar, some tables in the back with tv's all over the place. I suspect it would be a good place to watch Sunday football.

Overall the beer selection was very good. I think there were 300 bottles and close to 100 taps. Lots of stuff I can't get in NY. Bells, Terrapin. Also a lot of unique and one-off bottles. The staff was pretty knowledgable and would recommend beers based on what you like.

There's not food there but you can order from any one of a number of places (including Morton's Steakhouse) and they'll deliver right to you.

A must if you're' in Orlando.

The best WOB for picking up allocated stuff, like Lake Mary. Pretty good selection of beers.
You can also share bottles here, this is the only one.
Great food too.

This is a pretty cool place. Great bar, very friendly staff, and a decent selection of taps (maybe 15-20 rotating crafts). The kind of place where they change things around often enough that you never know quite what you're going to find when you go in. Their bottle selection is immense, and if you can't find something you like... you're doing it wrong. The food menu is limited but decent, and my only small complaint is that one of the lines for a tap wasn't cleaned properly and I got some residual flavor from the last beer on my order (it was pretty obvious... the previous beer was Stone's Chai Russian Stout... even the barkeep went 'hmm'). So... good place, and I'd stop in again.

This review is for the WOB in Dr. Phillips and Lake Mary as they are very similar and Lake Mary hasn't been added yet

I didnt have anything to eat so my review/notes will apply mostly to the beer selection which in my opinion is all that really matters otherwise

Check the cases before you order bottles. Both locations bottle menus were incomplete and didn't reflect what was actually in the case. I understand it would be difficult to maintain this menu but do yourself a favor and take a look. Several cans & bottles from CCB, terrapin and weyerbacher were in the case but not on the menu. There is also a new arrivals section in the coolers which didn't appear on the menu.

In terms of the actual selection, its huge. However, probably half of their bottles are imports of which the vast majority of I had never heard of. I mean, they had beers from Turkey and Isreal. Do they drink beer in Israel? As for domestics, the highlights mostly consisted of bottles like FIS, 2 Hearted, Jai Alai. Overall its a solid place but don't expect to be blown away.

Lastly, CCB is hit or miss in Orlando and surrounding areas. Don't expect to stop in at a random restaurant and find it. If you're hunting CCB call ahead.

A large, laid back, fairly clean, nIce patio,

Q everything is fairly good and fresh. Taps and lines seemed clean.

S bartenders are fair... Not very knowledgable about all types of beer or what glasses to use.

S good selection of Florida regulars. They may get some special stuff every once in a while.

V a title above average in pricing, but normal for the area.

Overall this place is fairly good. Best place in the area at least. Redlight redlight is pretty far away, but this is a good place to hang out and drink in dr Phillips.

I live around the corner from this location and have been several times. I do not frequent World of Beer but I know that if there is a beer that I can't find in the Orlando area I can probably get it here. Not only do they have a great selection of bottles and taps but will sell bottles to go at retail pricing. IF you are in the area and looking for a very broad selection this is the place for you.
