Fort Worth's buzzy West 7th district continues to grow. Come March it will be invaded by Tampa-born chain World of Beer, which perhaps unsurprisingly, specializes in serving a crap-ton of different beers: more than 500 in bottles and another 50 on tap, to be precise. World of Beer already has nearly 70 locations nationwide, including two in DFW — one on SMU Boulevard and the other in Arlington. Another will soon land at Preston and Park in Plano (both it and the Fort Worth outpost were originally slated to open in December).
A press release promises many of the featured beers will be locals, from breweries such as Rahr & Sons, Revolver, Martin House, and Panther Island. Besides beer, the menu will also feature "signature craft spirit cocktails, ciders and wine," and a menu of the pub-y sort of fare you'd expect from such a beer-centric place — a burger topped with Chimay cheese, gigantic soft pretzels with housemade beer cheese, fried pickles with a side of IPA dipping sauce, and Guinness-infused brats served on pretzel rolls.
World of Beer will play host to beer drinkers daily for lunch and dinner, plus Sunday brunch. For serious beer nerds, they've also got a "Loyalty Club" that sounds vaguely similar to the Flying Saucer's UFO Club, and plan to play host to plenty of tap takeovers and rare/limited-release keg tappings, plus "beer education classes."
