The World of Beer franchise started in Florida in 2006, and by mid 2013 grew to over 40 locations throughout the US. The WOB business model is unique; they specialize in serving just beer and nothing else! Most locations have about 50 craft brews on tap, and several hundred variety in bottles. The service is casual, and you are free to choose your own table. Some WOB locations serve from a very simple appetizer menu, but you can also order or bring in food from nearby restaurants. In one sense this allows for great dining options, but in another sense it seems a little inconvenient. In any case, I am very fond of sampler flights at WOB to discover a variety of new beers.
Columbus' first WOB opened in the heart of the historic brewery district. Look for the miniature Eiffel Tower, and park in the pay lot in back. The two story brick Worly building is an impressive site from the street Downstairs they have a 15 chair wooden bar, which is well lit with several televisions and refrigerator cases. There is also a second smaller bar upstairs. They have about 50 taps and 450 in bottled beers, a mix of all styles. Friendly roaming servers bring beer quickly, and accept food delivery orders. This place is crowded and noisy, and is a must visit location to try a flight from their incredible beer selection.
