World of Beer will open its Spanish Springs Town Square location the third week of July.

It will be the 30th World of Beer in Florida.

The rapidly expanding tavern franchise currently operates more than 70 taverns in 20 states.

The Spanish Springs location will employ more than 60 people.

“Our goal is to provide our guests with a one-of-a-kind World of Beer experience they won’t find anywhere else,” said Joe Norton, WOB Spanish Springs’ general manager. “Whether you’re a passionate beer lover or simply looking for a friendly place to gather for great casual food and a drink, we hope to see you here.”

WOB-Spanish Springs’ 4,624-square-foot tavern with a 1,100-square-foot outdoor patio will feature the franchise’s archetype design, providing guests with a warm and inviting interior complemented with modern, sleek touches. WOB taverns showcase the hundreds of bottled beers offered through the windows of the tavern’s signature beer cooler, and the long bar features rows of taps.

This location will partner with many Florida breweries, including Funky Buddha Brewing Co. (Oakland Park ); Cigar City Brewing (Tampa); and Crooked Can Brewing Company (Winter Garden). Brewery relationships are a key part of the WOB tavern concept, as owners partner with breweries to offer tap takeovers, rare brews and beer education classes for the craft beer enthusiast.

Celebrating the popularity of craft beer and its culture, WOB-Spanish Springs rotates taps daily so guests will discover something new and unique on every visit. Signature craft spirit cocktails, ciders and wine, along with nonalcoholic beverages, are also available. WOB pairs its craft brews with the franchise’s signature “Tavern Fare” menu,

featuring a variety of comfort foods and traditional bar offerings with a contemporary spin, such as Giant Bavarian Pretzels, a Guinness “Brat” Slider and the Chimay Burger topped with melted Chimay cheese made at the brewery in Belgium. WOB-Spanish Springs will serve lunch and dinner daily and on Sundays will offer a unique BEERunch menu. WOB will also host live music performances Fridays and Saturdays starting at 9 p.m.

“We are pleased to be a growing part of Florida’s passionate craft beer community with this new location in The Villages,” said World of Beer CEO Paul Avery. “At World of Beer, we truly believe there is a friend on every barstool. We look forward to sharing the craft brews and their stories with our guests, who may be inspired to discover something new.”
