The World of Beer franchise started in Florida in 2006, and by early 2015 has grown to over 80 locations throughout the US. The WOB business model started in a unique way, specializing in serving just beer and nothing else! But in recent years, the franchise locations have embraced adding a nice food menu.

World of Beer Reston is located on the ground floor of a 10-story brick building. This area is full of businesses and apartment towers. Short-term parking is free along the street, and there are also decks nearby. Along the front sidewalk is an outdoor patio area with many tables under a metal awning. Inside they have a large 22-chair marble topped bar on the left. Behind it are many tap handles and refrigerated cases of hundreds of bottled craft beer. Very impressive! On the right are many high top tables and a small space for live music. There are plenty of televisions for sports and the place has a lively social atmosphere. They have an awesome offering of about 3 dozen craft beers on tap, which are available by glass or sampler flight. Their food menu has pub appetizers, flatbreads, burgers, sandwiches, and a few impressive entrees. The service is charming and informative. This is another enjoyable member of the W O B franchise.

World of Beer is located in the west side of Reston Town Center, an upscale shopping, restaurant, and residential area. There's a lot of garage parking, along with some spaces along the street in front of it and the surrounding area. The garage parking is free and recommended unless you want to drive around for a spot.

The location is pretty expansive with a lot of tables, including an outdoor patio. There are TVs inside that are against the windows that face the patio, along with a bunch of TVs all over the place. The bar is very large with a lot of seats. The wall behind the bar is lined with taps along with some fridges filled with bottles. It's open seating, just find a seat (if you can, it can get packed) or a spot at the bar and a server will find you. Depending on how busy it is the service can be slow.

There are around 50 taps, and a very long bottle list. The bottle list is actually on an iPad. The draft list is also on paper and part of the main menu. The staff that I've come across have been knowledgeable.

The menu here is mostly smaller meals (relative to any other restaurant), but if you're hungry there is something to eat. The ones I've had are pretty good quality, it's not typical bar food.

Great place to grab a beer, with the best selection in the area. Just make sure you bring some patience if you're going there on a weekend night.
