I stopped here on a recent trip to orlando. It was recommended by a friend and I was able to catch a world series game there. Overall it had a frat bar feel to it. A long serpentine bar, some tables in the back with tv's all over the place. I suspect it would be a good place to watch Sunday football.
Overall the beer selection was very good. I think there were 300 bottles and close to 100 taps. Lots of stuff I can't get in NY. Bells, Terrapin. Also a lot of unique and one-off bottles. The staff was pretty knowledgable and would recommend beers based on what you like.
There's not food there but you can order from any one of a number of places (including Morton's Steakhouse) and they'll deliver right to you.
A must if you're' in Orlando.

I've been to this World Of Beer twice. The first time it was so packed we barely had room to stand. Nonetheless, the bartenders were very attentive and I was able to get whatever I wanted quickly. The second time I went for Yappy Hour. The staff was great and our waitress not only knew about beer but was always around when there were any empty glasses.

This is a nice clean bar with a huge selection of bottles and draft beer. The serve all their beers in the correct glass and are pretty knowledgeable on the beer they have. Unfortunately when it gets crowded it can take a long time to get a drink. Also it is a tad pricey but not too horrendous. A great place to go to with a buddy or two and just sit and talk or watch sports, also you can order food and have them bring it to you in the bar which is nice. The crowd is nice too, no stink eye's or anything like that.

The beer selection was pretty good.
The music was more suited for a late night rave techno hip-hop whatever club. The old man next to me got kicked out because he made a racial comment to the manager about the music. I just told him that it sucked and he claimed that he couldnt change it because it was programmed and piped into the place. It was offensive and not what I would choose to play for craft beer lovers. WOB seemed to be catering to the college crowd. Anyway, I would like to try another WOB in another town.

I stopped in here on the first leg of our Orlando vacation. This is literally right down the street from Universal Studios/Islands of Adventure.
Atmosphere: Very contemporary bar vibe, with tons of tables, bar space, about 20-30 taps, low lighting, and a stage for live music. Personally, I didn't dig the whole live music thing because of the noise level. My wife and I had just been on the road for 12 hours and just wanted some peace, quiet, and good beer... but that's just me.
Quality: While I was disappointed that they only had two Cigar City selections (Jai Alai and Maduro), they did have some really nice stuff, including locals such as Swamp Head and Florida Brewing Co.
Service: The waitress didn't know much about the beer other than what sold the best, however, she waited on us very attentively and was always there whenever our drinks were getting low.
Selection: Like I stated before, lots of taps and bottles to pick from from all parts of the US... and the world.
Value: I think the prices were fair and about like they should be for that area of the US.
NOTE: This is a bar 100%, therefore food is not served. However, the owners are really cool with, and even encourage, people to bring in food from surrounding businesses. My recommendation: Go to TooJay's Deli next door. You won't be sorry!

Atmosphere - the atmosphere is pretty hip and contemporary. The noise level was bustling and it was also quite busy in this new World of Beer.
Quality - there are some fairly hard to find beers here, but nothing that you couldn't find at a Knightly Spirits. I would like to have had some harder to find beers to choose from.
Service - the waitresses there are really overworked. They were very nice, but the amount of orders and patrons to service lengthened the amount of time it took to get a beer.
Selection - as I mentioned before, pretty much anything you would want to order at Knightly Spirits, you could also get here. World of Beer actually had a few beers available that I couldn't find at Knightly Spirits.
Value - the beers were fairly expensive, but not outrageously so.

This one is only about a mile from International Drive (the tourist hot spot) on Turkey Lake.
This WOB is located conveniently close to the tourist part of Orlando. It has a much larger indoor seating capacity than the WOB near the University of Central Florida.
The selection is huge. Around 30 taps and a huge book of bottles. The staff is nice, and they can give you some advice and knowledge about beers, but it's evident most of what they offer is retained from training and not their own passion of craft beers.
The one time I went it was pretty busy, but I didn't have too much trouble finding a place to sit, however, it looks like our server was completely overworked as she had 30+ people in her section. This resulted in the service being slower than you would like.
Anyone staying on the west side of Orlando should give this place a try if they are looking for somewhere within a cab-drive to get some good beer.

Cool place to try beers. It was a bit on the price side. They dont server food but they do offer a delivery menu from places around it. Unfortunately the server did not tell us this until when we were about to leave. Maybe next time. Five Guys and Beer mmmm.
Lets see the important stuff. I tried Delerium Tremens which kind of reminded me of Delsym cough syrup. I tried Piraat which was good but had an overpowering alcohol taste to it. I tried Joker Ace which was pretty dry but good, however I would prefer Woodchuck or Strongbow to it. I also sampled Midas Touch and have hence fell in love with Dogfish Head. They make most excellent beers. Ooooh yeah I had St. Bernardus Apt12 on draught and all I can say about that is WOW. I tried a bunch of other things that I don't remember. I sip here and there. Overall I had a great time. I definitely want to go back.

Well...I don't know what to say about this place. To start, I'll say that I went on St Paddy's Day, so I'm probably not doing the place justice. It was an absolute madhouse, and the 6 or so people behind the bar were running around like crazy. It was a pain to get a beer, but when I did, the staff was polite, courteous, and got the job done quickly. A TON of taps, too many to list, and about four refrigerator doors full of single bottles. Downside...not sure if it was because of the chaos of the evening, but I was served in a plastic cup. Hugely offputting. As for the crowd, it was the mid-20s college crowd all over the place...obviously because of the holiday. I'm down here for another week, so I'll need to come back on a weeknight to see how things roll when it's not a total asylum in there.

All I can say is what a joke. I was here on 3/13/11 and witnessed some of the worst customer service I have ever had in my life. My wife and I sat down on the patio and waited, and waited for a server to take our beer order or at least acknowledge our existance. Asked for a server and got a snotty response and then a whisper whisper "he's the the guy who asked about a server outside". In the meantime while we continued waiting we watched some meathead employee do a beer bong behind the bar. Now thats being an advocate for great beer at a "beer bar". We finally were served a beer and our food menu. They do not serve food at this location so you order out and another venue brings you your food. Some help with process would have been nice. Are you kidding that would be called customer service. Had to ask for our next beer. Went to the bar and complained and got our final beer. They were not the least bit concerned of our unhappiness with their customer service. I asked our server who was finding it more important to hit on some customer if she had the time in her busy schedule to bring us our tab. She stated "the bar has your tab now". Thanks for letting us know. I told the mgr and whomever else would listen that this was like watching a frat house run a bar. Their response "sorry you feel that way sir". I told them they would be getting $0 tip from us. Response was "you should not tip on service that you didn't feel was good". With a place that has the name Beer World in it I would think the service staff would be trained on beer. Not true. Our sever gave us nothing for information or enthusiasim. She could've cared less that she was working at a beer bar.
The actual decor of World of Beer was fine. It was the staff that that gave it an ugly appearance. I am in the the beer industry and get to travel a bit for beer. Had beer's all over the planet. Never have I had service like this. Unacceptable.
