REVIEW – World of Beer Downtown Orlando

Founded in 2007, World of Beer is a cornucopia of craft beer, spirits, original eats, and fun! Featuring more than 350 bottled beers and 50 taps from over 40 countries, there is no room to wonder about the origins of the name, but there’s a lot more to enjoy here beyond the beer.

We recently attended a media event at World of Beer’s Downtown Orlando location to experience a new combination of beer and food pairings, and to soak in the result of extensive outdoor and indoor renovations to the enviable space. Some of the new features include interior flooring and furniture upgrades as well as outdoor entertainment elements like new TVs, interactive games, and a pet-friendly patio area along the banks of Lake Eola. New spaces for entertainment and private meetings are also fostering the opportunity for unique new events.

Aside from soaking in the awesomely distracting surroundings… here’s a look at what we discovered during our World of Beer experience:

  1. German Pretzel – Giant Bavarian Pretzel baked soft on the inside and crispy on the outside. Served with house made stone ground mustard and beer cheese. Paired with Pale Lagers. This was generously basted in the most savory movie-theater-styled butter, and it was absolutely perfect in consistency. I am normally one to prefer a cheese dip over mustard, but I was surprisingly drawn to gluttonous indulgence in the opposite direction this time around. Easily a reasonable starter for 3-4 people, or a great light-bite for a couple wanting to focus on a beer flight!
