I visited World of Beer on a Wednesday afternoon in late March. I walked in at 2:15, not realizing that they didn't open til 3pm. They were still gracious enough to serve me. The place isn't big. It has a nice bar with comfortable seating. The beer selection is pretty good considering what beers are available in Florida. I would've like to have seen more local beer on tap. They were about to have a German tap night and it appeared that they were already adding German brews to the taps. I also would have liked to see a few more Cigar City bottles in the cooler. Overall, though the selection was nice. I enjoyed the Bischoff Kristal Weizen. They served it with a lemon wedge. I would've rather they hadn't but it's no big deal. The prices must have come down. Earlier reviews said that it was extremely high, but I didn't see that. For example, the Bischoff was $5 for a large pour. Don't even know if they have food, but I didn't try it. This is a very nice location for a beer, granted it was in the middle of the afternoon on a Wednesday.

When they first opened this was one of the ONLY spots to get good, quality beer. So at that time it was acceptable paying %300-%400 mark-up b/c no one else around could offer the same product. Now, it seems like a new craft beer bar is popping up every week around South Florida and even some of the local bars in the same shopping center have joined the craze, but the WOB prices still stay outragiously high as if no one else sold craft beer. I can walk across the sidewalk to red rock grill and get 20 craft drafts for $3-$4 less than at WOB. They have to understand they are not the only show in town like they were 3 years ago. They are behind in the beer selection, they are losing creativity with their tap takeover nights, and they are holding beer for "special release" weeks after 20 places around them have sold that same beer. It's 4/22 and they still have enjoy by 4/20 on draft and in bottle b/c they took forever to put it out..Unfortunatly the selfish and greedy, money hungry owners have turned this place from a once great establishment, to a last resort for beer drinkers.

The staff is amazing though. Chewy and Edge are the BEST!! Will, Brett, Eric, Lui actually know about and respect good beer. Aubrey, Ashley, Tasha, and Melissa definitely add some great craft knowlege as well..

It's really unfortunate how far and how fast this place fell down the shitter...and nobody but ownership to blame...

Just take the drive to Laserwolf or go to Total Wine and save yourself the price gouge. You're not going to find the limited bottles here.

Best part of the place is the staff. They are all really good people, especially Fiorella, John, Chewy, Will, Aubrey, Jenn P., Rebecca, Ashley, and Lui.

With WoB being just a short five minute drive up the street from the house, I just had to try it. Took my old man and had a few beers. Bottle selection is amazing, menu is even broken down into categories listing style, origin, ABV, bottle size and price. Some of the bottles are outrageously priced though. Having been all over this great nation and having tried some of the best beers in the states, I was impressed with their on-tap selection as well. The only downsides to this place are the lack of seating, the lack of a truly knowledgable staff, and the fact that it's in Florida. With the Florida laws and whatnot, I perused the menu and could not find any of the top 25 BA top rated beers amongst the bottle selection at WoB. My other gripe is not so much with WoB, but with the state of FL. Being from Cleveland, OH originally, I have become a raving fan of the Great Lakes Brewery, and I have to have family bring me down cases of the beers I want from there as they come to visit. Overall, WoB is a good place to visit for an amateur beer lover with a large pocketbook, but for those of us who truly know and love great beer, don't bother, unless you want to leave broke!

World of Beer is an interesting bar to say the least. It's extremely loud and very uncomfortable, but the beer selection is AMAZING. They have a bunch of rotating taps and an extremely large bottle selection. They have a bunch of Cigar City brews which always makes me happy. They have a few flat screen TVs and a stage upstairs where bands play. Overall, great beer selection, but very noisy. I highly recommend sitting outside since the inside area is too chaotic. Recommended to those looking for good beer in a state where good beer is hard to fine.

From the novice to experienced beer drinker, you’ll find something to drink here. However, this place leans much more towards being a club and while I will give them credit for getting more people interested in craft beer, they have a tendency to have very little knowledge about their products. If you are with a group of friends, its a good place. At night and on the weekends, the music gets cranked up and bands are usually playing, which is also a problem because it is extremely loud in there (good luck trying to tell the bartender what beer you want). Be careful, when ordering bottles because some are highly over priced, especially the larger bottles. For a simplified description of this place, I would say, "if AB owned a craft beer bar, this is what they would come up with."

This is the kind of place that irks me, as a craft beer lover. Initially it seemed like a great idea - a big bar with a huge selection of craft beer for all the macro-drinking masses to try and hopefully bring over from the Dark Side. They've definitely mastered the marketing - social media, email, events, etc. They send out an email newsletter every week listing events, new bottle and draft releases, specials, etc. There's a pet-friendly night for people who want to bring their dogs and sit outside and enjoy a brew. World of Beer seems perfectly sincere in their intentions but it just seems like the execution is all wrong. Very few employees know the first thing about beer, the atmosphere is a bit louder, brighter and busier than allowed by my comfort level, and the last time I stopped in, both beers I ordered off the draft seemed to have been tainted by dirty tap lines. Maybe the kegs weren't stored properly. I honestly don't know, but there should be no excuse to serve spoiled beer. Both beers were standards that I always go to and have tried many times prior, so it was easy to notice the difference. I really like how WOB pushes great beer to the masses, but personally I'd rather spend my money at a place that isn't a chain and has a bit more of a relaxed atmosphere and knowledgeable staff.
