Westchase is way out in the middle of nowhere, halfway to Gainesville. But World of Beer, a great bar, makes Westchase a destination for Tampa residents.

Sure I'd heard of World of Beer, even before coming to Florida, but who can justify a long drive out to farm country just for beer? We finally ended up in Westchase for a party at a friends house, which happened to be just a half mile from WOB. After the party ended, maybe at 10pm, we knew we had to take advantage of being so close to this famous bar. As we drove into the shopping center the outdoor seating area was packed and there were cars and well-dressed people everywhere. We found a close-by parking spot, then made our way to the bar.

The live music could be heard outside the door and the inside of the bar was pretty full. The bar at the entrance had a few empty stools, but the main bar under the stage was completely packed and the area around this bar was full. We ordered a few Belgian Leffe Blonde beers on tap ($5 each), then wandered outside to see if a seat was available, but no luck. We finally relaxed near the bar by the entrance, where we could admire the amazing beer coolers, see he TVs and watch the live music. Yes, I said the second bar was under the stage... the singer has to go up the steps behind the bar, and plays up on a 15 foot high stage--provides a great view for everyone!

They claim to have 500 beers including 30 on tap.
