When I heard about this place coming I was super excited. The location is decent but parking can be scarce. The service is good and the selection is amazing, but you won't find your typical Macro brewery selections here. I have had mixed experiences but the last one was pretty good. I stop by whenever I can to enjoy a nice brew. If your in the area, make sure to stop by. There isn't food but plenty of places nearby that have good eats that you can bring into the bar.

So I had the pleasure of checking out the new WOB on Sunday. It was their friends and family soft open so my service portion of the review is a bit skewed. I will be returning tomorrow for a full experience.

The place itself is beautiful. Obviously it's new but the decor is spot on beer bar. The tap handles framed with shiny steel and the coolers well lit and gleaming. I love that all the bottles are on display at eye level. No peering behind the bar to spot a bottle you want. Tap list is on a huge chalk board written in large font. No guessing game there. Tons of flat screens for your viewing pleasure.

Quality certainly is not an issue here. Clean lines are a signature of the franchise. As well as putting aging beers on a discount list to rotate stock.

Service was a touch slow and aloof. I'm giving a pass on this for now. It was the first day they were open. Along with the fact that half the people in there were being comped drinks.

The selection is top notch as far as numbers go. The draft list is eclectic and varied. Focus on locals is a really nice touch. Is it filled with exotic beer from around the world? No. Does it give you a great sample of current craft beer? Yes. I'm impossible to please. Can't fault them for me being a total beer snob. Bottle list is ridiculous. 500!

No food on site but they have menus from many area spots that will deliver right to your bar stool.

I was pumped when I first heard this place was opening. Glad to see my wait was worth it.
