As does many such ventures, World of Beer began as a dream between two good friends enjoying several craft beers. In 2007, Scott Zepp and Matt LaFon started the company as a beer retail store, but quickly realized that their true calling was to open a tavern that specialized in great craft beer. World of Beer (WOB) was born. In short order, the new beer bar in the Westchase area of Tampa, Fla. became a beer destination boasting 500 local and international beers.
This week the company will open its 72nd location in Jacksonville Beach on Super Bowl Sunday at 5:00 p.m.
Celebrating the popularity of craft beer and its culture, WOB rotates taps daily so guests will discover something new and unique on every visit. Signature craft spirit cocktails, ciders and wine along with nonalcoholic beverages are also available. WOB pairs its craft brews with the franchise’s signature “Tavern Fare” menu featuring a variety of comfort foods and traditional bar offerings with a contemporary spin, such as Giant Bavarian Pretzels, a Guinness “Brat” Slider and the Chimay Burger. The tavern also will offer a new BEERunch on Sundays with craft-inspired breakfast items such as: Belgian Beer Waffles, Blueberry Wheat French Toast, Breakfast Tacos and Chicken & Waffle Sandwiches.
as is the norm at most of the company’s taverns, fifty beers will be featured on rotating taps along with more than 500 canned and bottled brews from around the world. The Jax beaches location will also feature an infusion tower that allows guest to infuse flavors into their beer choices such as fruit or even additional hops. In addition, guests at WOB Jax Beach can expect specialty cask beers served via an authentic beer engine.
WOB Jacksonville Beach is located at 311 3rd Street North with normal operating hours of 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Sunday and Monday and 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
