First time at the WOB in Columbia, SC. It was a little hard to find it is in the back of a long old brick warehouse that Longhorn Steakhouse shares in the front. Great knowledgeable people at the bar. Had a nice selection of Carolina beers. If you are a beer traveler, this is a good place to score many local Carolina brews

The beer was great, but the service was absolutely atrocious. I came in on a Sunday and sat at the bar and the bartender spent more time texting on her phone and she did seeing what everybody wanted. I don't recommend going there.

Selection of really good, especially local SC beer. Food was really good too. Staff was really slow to get back to you though.

Best beer bar in Columbia. 60 taps, 500+ Bottles! They put a great emphasis on supporting S.C. Beers. They had an event with 40 different South Carolina beers on tap. Do you know how hard that is? They always have the newest stuff to hit the market first.

They always have great events. The staff is one of the most knowledgeable I have ever been around, ANYWHERE.

I love this place!! I have a business right around the corner from WOB and I'm there at least 3 times a week. They have the best selection of beers at a bar that I've ever seen. Looking forward to KBS on tap next week! The staff is awesome from the waitresses to the GM, Tyler. Beer knowledge throughout the staff is clearly apparent. Love all the rare beers I get to try and also all the local beers. Great mix and just an overall incredible bar.

world of beer in columbia has been opened for a while and i cant tell you why i havnt been there until now. i went there for the first time on new years eve. their selection is really good, plenty of taps and even more bottles. also they were running special prices that night that were really good. i ordered a sam adams merry mischief- it was half price and they hooked me up with a tshirt and a pint glass- best $2.75 ive ever spent. i was so pleased with the selection that i went back 4 days later, without the special pricing it was a little pricier but right in line with most places selling craft beers. i do wish they had more food options...when sipping on the higher gravities i like to eat a little something- they have some food there but the selection is small. that being said youre mainly going to a place like this for the beer and on that front they excel.
