Stopped in this place on my road trip vation to Clearwater. I wish I would of taken a picture of this place for the profile! Found this place thanks to BA. Actually passed it up the first time I drove pass it. Very nice little bottle shop with plenty of selections. A lot of FL. locals including CCB. With some CCB beers that have come and gone. When I stopped in the owner was behind the counter and was very helpful and knowledgeable. Tons of bottles to pick from in this clean enviroment. The best bottle shop in Clearwater!

As noted by several others this place is TINY. Small room filled with a lot of tasty beer. Friendly and knowledgable guy behind the counter. Beer everywhere, on shelves to the right and in coolers towards the rear. You will find Bells, Cigar City, Terrapin (this is what interested me anyway, being from NY state) as well as a healthy helping of the available craft beer in the area. Decent spot thats worth a visit. But I was a bit underwhelmed by the selection

(Visited 06/2011): World of Beer in Clearwater is located on Gulf To Bay (Rte 60) not too far from where the bridge begins. The plaza has plentiful parking.
Not much to look at from the outside. The interior is small with the beer selection primarily on the right side in coolers.
Pretty fair selection including Florida breweries like Ybor City and Dunedin. Other domestic craft breweries like Rogue, Dogfish Head, and Ommegang are present too. As for imports there are options from Belgium, Germany, the UK etc. Customers can also purchase singles.
Service was knowledgeable and friendly on my quick visit. There were a couple gents behind the counter and they were both clearly beer fans.
Overall this is a good spot to check out not too far from the airport.

Our first stop for our new home. A nice little cozy store with a decent selection. Maybe I was a little spoiled being in the Philadelphia area with the massive selection you get there but this did have some very good offering's. Alot from Cigar City which is always a plus and I am finding out it seems to be a bit tougher to get St.Somewhere around the area though it is just up the road a bit.Odd. The man said it wasn't selling as much so I guess they stopped getting it. I didn't get the man's name but he was very friendly and helpful.He seemed to enjoy his job and how couldn't you when you work with something oh so beautiful. I found the selection to be good but not to some that I have found in my hometown but a very nice place to find some local finds and a few hidden gems

Not to be confused with the chain beer place "WOB". This is a small store that specializes in selling beer. It's located right across the original Hooters on Gulf to Bay in Clearwater.
The place doesn't really have a great atmosphere, it pretty much looks like a regular liquor store.
The guy that works there (could be the owner, I'm not sure, but he's always there) is very knowledgeable and can give recommendations and discuss beer at any time. You can request beers that are not available in the store and they'll do the effort of ordering them which is a good thing because the selection is not great, at least compared to the bigger stores like Total Wine.

This place should be called "the Original World of Beer" because it long pre-dates the eponymous corporate-jock-ish bar.
Incidentally, it is located directly across the street from the world's first-ever Hooters restaurant. It is a shame that you can't bring beers from WOB into Hooters, or that over the decades they haven't found some way to work together. It would be nice to kill two fowls with one projectile.
The place used to be unrivaled in selection, but intervening years have seen many good venues pop up, and tastes have evolved, etc. But the original beer shop is still good; it doesn't have the glut of exotic beers that it once did, it has been pared down to high quality stuff at reasonable prices.
It is a small place, with nothing but beer, and the guys that work there are old school, for real.
Check it out if you are passing by. And if you are in Clearwater, chances are you'll be passing by, as it is very centrally located.

This was the first real "beer" store I discovered in the Tampa Bay area years ago and had what I thought of as a world class selection. This place has reduced the exotic nature of there beer inventory as of late but they have fresher stock now so it's really a good thing. It's not that they have fewer beers they just don't have the off the wall never seen it before stuff like they used to have. If your traveling in the area I suggest you make a trip here to fond some good stuff as it's still one of the best beer selections around. The pries range from very reasonable to pushing pricey.

A smallish looking place from the outside but they pack quite a collection into what space they have.
Certainly the best selection I saw in Clearwater. Lots of Mikkeller and I found the Saint Somewhere I was looking for. A lot of their stock in refrigerated which didn't work well for me since I was just passing through. The clerk got up on his ladder and found me all the room temp bottles I needed though.
The guy seemed pretty knowledgeable about his beer. All stock seemed fresh and he seems to get a good turnover. The prices were a bit high but that would be my only significant complaint. Worth the drive.
