This is a great place to try new beers. Even if you don't like beer, there will be one you like here! The only downfall is that they are very expensive!

I like to try local beers when I travel and WOB is the perfect place for that. I was only there for after dinner drinks, but I really like this place, esp since there isn't one near where I live.

I have been to World of Beer (WOB) numerous times and each visit is better than the last. The craft beer selection is one of the best is Sarasota. They have quality live music and even have corn hole. Definitely recommend!

Great place to stop, relax, and have a beer (what else?). They have beer from all over the world, and you should have no problem finding what you like. Staff is helpful and friendly.

I am not a beer drinker but I enjoyed this place. We got here the evening before they play fireworks to celebrate ID4. We thought the meal is small but that's not the case here. Shrimp tacos sound small isn't it? but if you come here with 2 other friends, that's enough for each one because they come in 3... More

This place is awesome. So many different types of beer. Service was great. Best part was being able to talk to family or friends with out yelling.
