I absolutely love this place. It's a great atmosphere with comfortable seating and TVs EVERYWHERE! The staff is very knowledgeable and always eager to help you out. Most drafts are between $5 and $6, but it is more than worth it for top quality product. There's always something new on tap each time I visit (I loved Lagunitas IPA on my last trip). On a downside, it does get extremely crowded on Friday and Saturday, but if you don't mind a lot of noise and standing room only, this is the perfect place.

Hands down, if you're in the Tampa Bay area, this is the beer bar you want to visit! The servers are all very friendly, and most know their beer.
World of Beer typically has a high energy crowd and fun music. They do live music a few times a week and it's just a fun place to hang out with friends.
Typically, you'll find 30 beers on draft and a selection of about 300-400 bottles. My only complaint has been the lack of seasonals, but that's been changing over the past few months.
When you're visiting on a busy night, service can be kind of slow. But otherwise, they're quick, friendly and willing to help you choose the right beer.
Food is rather a great point at World of Beer. Tijuana Flats sits next door and there's an Italian place in the shopping center with great pizza (all of which deliver to WoB). Let it be known that World of Beer does not actually serve food, but can provide menus to all the restaurants in the immediate area.
Overall, I'd highly recomment World of Beer as the best beer bar in the Tampa Bay area. There's a few others that are nice, but World of Beer is the best!

The beer place in Tampa! There are other various places to buy beer but you cannot beat the selection The World of Beer has to offer. The staff is educated in different styles of beer, although when I get to speaking about particulars of beer character they seem to get lost. But again, they don't have to brew them to sell them. I wish there was more seating, but don't we all. Depending on what you get it can get a bit pricey. I wish this place had plaques on the wall for people who have tried over X amount of beers. A place in Houston called the Flying Saucer has this, that place is awesome. You should be able to participate in a "subscription" and it keeps track of the brews you have had, but you can only mark off 3 or 4 beers a day as to not die trying to drink them all in one night. This would be a great boost to The World of Beer I think. Other than the already mentioned this place is it for beer drinkers in the Tampa area.

Atmosphere: Located in the middle of a nice shopping establishment in Tampa - I walked in as a live cover band started playing "Wonderwall" by Oasis. I looked to my left and found a twenty foot wall of bottle beer in coolers. A two story chalk board highlights their draft menu. Entertaining both inside and outside with a pull up glass garage door, the bar has 20+ taps with solid beers like Stone Ruination, Bells, Shipyard, Lost Coast, among other greats.
As the band rattled on with only the best of the 90s on acoustic, I had several pints of beer. All served in their signature glasses. The bartending staff was well educated and fine.
They have beer-to-go and mix match six packs are 20% off! They have a membership club with benefits.
This place was hoppin' - the service was exceptional and the seating was great - A bar lines the front 20 foot beer cooler so BA's can sit and gaze at the spectical. Another "L" shaped bar lines the 20+ tap bar. Along with high seated cocktail tables - as well as raised booths.
The cover band was playing on the second floor above the bar - the place is open-air so by "second floor" I mean stage above bar overlooking the whole place. It's pretty cool!

If anything this place is educating the yellow fizzy beer drinker to our side of the fence - demanding quality brew.
I highly recommend this place. I will stop back if I'm ever in Tampa again!

I go to this WoB occasionally to get some different beers from the WoB in Carrollwood that I go to. The staff is friendly and for the most part fairly knowledgeable about styles and can pair one with a beer depending on their taste. As everyone has stated it can get packed on Friday and Saturday's, especially here in football season. There is restaurants around that deliver for free to WoB. So there is food for most anyone.
Pros: Great beer selection, friendly/knowledgeable staff
Cons: fairly small for the volume of business they do
