Florida beer bar chain World of Beer has filed plans to put in a Jacksonville location in the Tinseltown area. The plans call for the new bar to be built in the former Starbuck’s location at 9700 Deer Lake Court, No. 1. The nearly 3,000 square foot location will join the already crowded beer-centric area near Mellow Mushroom, Tilted Kilt, and Miller’s Ale House.
The typical World of Beer location serves upwards of 30 brews on tap and hundreds of bottled beers. World of Beer’s philosophy is to be welcoming to the hophead as well as the novice beer drinker. It places emphasis on beer increasing the beer knowledge of its patrons in a warm, inviting, and friendly atmosphere.
Based out of Tampa, World of Beer has quickly expanded since opening its first store in 2007. South and Central Florida have had outlets for several years already. Earlier this year rumors were circulating that the chain was eyeing the former Fuel building in Five Points. Today’s news would seem to refute that.
The company’s website states that the Jacksonville location should be open in November.
