Call your friends and clear your schedules for
July 23, and maybe the 24 August 8. Just do it, you’ll thank me for it later.
An exciting new franchise is opening its doors here in Phoenix and you are not going to want to miss out on this one. Imagine an entire bar exclusively dedicated to the fermented magical creation that is beer. The aptly named, World of Beer will be opening its doors at its first Arizona location on Mill Avenue to teach us all a serious lesson on this under appreciated frosty beverage.
Just close your eyes and picture an entire pub dedicated to satisfying your every craft brewed wish. The World of Beer will have an astonishing 480 different beers on hand year round, and space for a minimum of an additional 40 brews for those seasonally offered treats. There are rumors that there may be as many as 70 taps available, but you can count on 50 at the absolute minimum. Not too shabby!
Not to say that the World Of Beer is snobbish about their beer selection, but you will never find those mainstream, Miller Coors or Anheuser-Busch products; not even their sneakily labeled sub-brands. You can expect to be completely befuddled at the massive selection of craft brewed beers as well as locally brewed beers. When the bartender asks you for your order, thankfully their staff will be expertly equipped to help you discover a beer that you absolutely won’t find an ASU Frat guy shotgunning a few blocks over. Describe your likes and dislikes and offer up the name of your passé mainstream favorite, and your bartender will have no problem serving up something you’ve never heard of, but will never forget.
The World Of Beer is seriously dedicated to beer, and beer only. Forget ordering liquor or wine, it’s not going to happen here. In this wonderful world of beer, the staff doesn’t waste its time and precious mental prowess on a food menu either because they don’t offer any food either. So has the World Of Beer fallen just short of perfect? Nah, these beer lovers know exactly where you’re coming from and have thought of everything. Shots are no longer a liquor-only type of thing. The master bartenders at WOB craft delicious beer shots that will rival anything you’re used to. As far as addressing the issue of the drunk-munchies, the head-honchos at WOB are working to partner with various restaurants on Mill to have them deliver their menu items direct to you. Seriously.
If you’ve read this far and aren’t excited to try this place as soon as possible, then I don’t know what to tell you? What if I were to tell you that we would all have baskets of cash delivered to our front doors tomorrow morning? No? Alright, well, you’re hopeless.
