I knew going in it was chain place.
Its new.
It a corner bar like in a garage or something.

I had to go because Founder's brewing was having its Founder's in Florida day event.. Not that you know it walking in. its a sport bar basically. I had read and posted about going in, I knew it would a place I would hate in some ways. Still the chairs thing helps allot.

A: noisy, Long bar that goes and goes. Outside smoking. a few booths but not many. I think, but do not know as we would not stay out that late, they may have live music.

The entrance is 2 large garage doors after you go through a outside patio bar area. Its like old school Florida. its very beach like in a way. Me I disliked it for many reasons. One; what a waste of A/C... also the smoke once it got more crowded did drift back in, as that is where the AC inlets are!!! bad design IMHO.

anyway all that said if you go during the lull, when things slow down, the craft beer selection is frankly second to NONE in town. Now its not first in # of taps, but at least its NOT all IPA's.
I did not see any Bud or Miller or Coors.
Sure they had Blue moon. I know its a Coors's product. Still it was NOT a lite beer hangout.

The good, the bars chairs were the best in town. Nice and big and with padded backs! you can even sit in them for a few hours and not have dead legs. Beer was fresh. we were sitting at the bar. Very comfortable....sadly just to loud in there.

Q: was good as i had 6 beers and no headache.

I for one when sitting at the bar, that just has beer and wine. I expect the service to be perfect, and its beer and wine only if the service is not perfect then something is very wrong. So we had no issues service wise. Though the bar was near full. While the place was crowded it was NOT packed yet! We knew 4:30pm and on it as going to get worse.

We never had to wait for a new beer, still is was not 5pm yet.

The food we had was good, a tad pricey and small amount for that price, but did the trick. Limited bar menu, but hey you just want to eat enough to not get hammered. Food taste was good, but small potions.

The bad, I truly hate the place for its turnover of wait staff. That was done very badly. wanting you to close out. and then they did what ruins the place or any place for me.

WTF is up with that? NO 1 could hear to ever order...we left. Was not happy to be forced to close out he ticket and then the butt head lost it. Scary....

Overall impression: its not a place i would hang out in, even if i as still into hanging out.
So we will most likely never be back but I was impressed with the bottle selection UNTIL I saw the prices!

Still its in the gate parkway area that is up and coming for the east side of Jax. Well TBH I can never say never, because after the new wears off and its in the after lunch lull, it MIGHT we a decent place to hang in the winter time but just because of the selection..

PRICES: ouchies. I ragged the BSP over this and I guess I have to rag this place, but bottle prices for Belgians is a total rip off. i know Orval is 6.59 at TW, but 11 bucks in here, no way in hell I would pay way.

anyway the good, nice chairs, I know I repeated that. Still a bar with nice chairs is a real bar.
TO FRIGGING loud before 5pm and after 5pm you be deaf really soon. Nice spread of draft taps, not IPA heavy, first in this town. Prices I guess for the folks working nearby they can afford it, i cannot.

I get a good vibe from this place--for a name like "World of Beer," it's surprisingly small, but that's actually a plus in my opinion. Also, because it has a sort of indoor/outdoor osmosis, it doesn't get overwhelmingly loud. They boast a huge selection of beer, both in bottles and on tap. If you want a bottle list, you might have to ask--it's on an iPad, which is actually quite nifty & intuitive. If you are looking for something you haven't been able to find, you might find it here.

They serve all the typical gastropub food, and it's high/decent quality. Get the pretzel.

Bartenders are very friendly and take great pride in learning what your personal preferences are. Had over 500 different selections in bottles and another few dozen on tap. Very impressive. Food is average, but arrives quick and hot. Definitely worth going to, as it had sampling of many local brews, as well as beers from around the state that are difficult to find otherwise.

Service was horrible and the waiters moody. Went there several times and was highly disappointed by the rudeness and indifference. I had high expectations given the idea of the amazing beer selection. Prices were very fair and the selected food items tasty. They even allow you to order out while there. Would love to give them another chance at a different location or perhaps hiring some people that are a bit more mature couldn't hurt.I give them a 4 out of 10 only because when I was served the abv was enough to fade some of the attitude thrown my way.
