World of Beer takes over WVLG studio at Spanish Springs square

A new sign went up this past week at World of Beer to be located in Spanish Springs.

World of Beer is moving into space on Alverez Avenue in Spanish Springs including taking over the former studio of AM640-WLVG.

The Villages’ radio station’s now-lone studio is located at Lake Sumter Landing.

This past week, Warren Kay of The Sign Source was monitoring progress on the new sign above what will be the second World of Beer in The Villages.

The pints, pours and pairings are going fast too at Brownwood Paddock Square, where the first World of Beer has become popular. There are more than 50 different craft beers on tap, and more than 500 beers, ales and stouts in the cooler, plus a tasty tavern menu to go with the brews. Lighter fare like a German pretzel or onion rings double dipped in stout and a brown beer go fast, as do lunch items like the Chimay Burger and the Margherita Flatbread.

The AM640-WVLG studio has been a fixture for years in Spanish Springs Town Square.

C2 general contractor Dane Jones said it will be a couple of months before the new Spanish Springs emporium will be open for business. “It looks like we’ve done a lot, and we have,” Jones said, pointing to the aluminum framing already completed in the building’s interior, “but there’s still a whole lot that needs doing. So, the best thing to do right now is to go down  to Brownwood, or home to your own refrigerator for a frosty mug.”

Radio, of course, has a long history with The Villages. Founder Harold Schwartz made his original fortune with radio stations beaming music into the states across the Mexican border.
