  • Jacksonville, FL (1888PressRelease) July 02, 2013 - The 3,200 sq ft WOB Jacksonville is complimented by an 800 sq ft patio, and is located in the Tinseltown Southside Shopping Center. Guests will be able to order food directly from the kitchen, which will offer the highly anticipated Tavern Fare - a menu exclusively developed by World of Beer to complement the craft beer offerings.

    "We'd like to thank the city of Jacksonville for giving us this opportunity to create new jobs for area residents," said Tony Vera, General Manager of WOB Jacksonville. "We are happy to offer an atmosphere where guests feel comfortable meeting and mingling while enjoying the very best craft beer selection in Jacksonville; being a part of the first World of Beer with the 'Tavern Fare' menu is so exciting and I can't wait to share it with our guests."

    The fast-growing franchise recently developed their 'Tavern Fare' menu, complete with tavern-style favorites including soft pretzels, flatbreads and brats. The items on the new menu embody the craft-style experience and pair well with the collection of brews available at World of Beer. Much of the fare uses different types of craft beer in the recipes, making this menu unique and appreciative of the WOB culture.

    Vera has been with World of Beer Franchising, Inc. for two years, seeing it grow immensely from the second WOB location in Sarasota. He looks forward to opening day of the 42nd WOB location and partnering with local breweries such as Intuition, Bold City, River City, Green Room, Engine 15, Pinglehead, and Aardwolf.

    World of Beer Jacksonville will host monthly brewery nights and spotlights, tap takeovers and beer-centric events celebrating Belgian Independence Day, WOBoween, WOBtoberfest and more. Happy Hour will be held Monday-Friday from 2-7pm with $1 off all drafts and wine by the glass.
