Small-batch "craft" brewers are now driving the beer sales in the USA, reflecting a shift in taste particularly with young men, according to Wall Street Journal. Beer shipments in the U.S. rose 1.9% to 141.4 million barrels in the first eight months of 2012.
And there's no better place to sample these great beers, crafted by some of the most passionate brewers in the world, than World of Beer®.
World of Beer® is a truly unique establishment where the experience is as essential as the product. Aside from offering the most extensive selection of beer, we also provide a friendly environment with an exceptional staff. It is important for us that a broad spectrum of patrons, from the beer aficionado to the casual beer fan, can enjoy the best beers on the planet and increase their beer knowledge in a comfortable and upbeat setting. We always strive to create an atmosphere where guests feel at home, as if they were visiting a neighbor not just a bar.
What Makes Us Different
World of Beer is a beer tavern with an upbeat atmosphere that provides the opportunity to drink, enjoy and experience great craft beers from all over the world. Our taverns are designed to embrace, promote and showcase the product that we sell – beer.
Each World of Beer® tavern is designed around a state of the art walk-in cooler which provides for 50 draft tap handles and 8 glass cooler doors that house 500 different bottles of beer. Typically, flat screen TV’s wrap the cooler and the live music stage is either located above the cooler or on one side or the other, strategically directing everyone’s attention to the product. This type of presentation is virtually impossible for existing bars or restaurants to duplicate without total rebuilding.
Beer 101: Extensive Training Program for our Staff
Every World of Beer® staff member is well trained and well versed in the complexities and varieties of different beers, brewing methods and brewing regions. New staff members go through an extensive training program that teaches about the various styles, regions, brewing methods and flavors of beer culminating in a written test that they must pass. The training is designed specifically to improve the staff member’s beer I.Q., so that they can share and impart this knowledge on our patrons. This enhances the patrons’ enjoyment and ensures that the staff can match the right beer to the customers’ individual tastes.
