The World of Beer opening in Avion Park, near the Tampa International Airport, International Plaza and Bay Street and Westshore Plaza has a new look different from its predecessors.
"We have a flight deck upstairs with an outside bar which has full spirits and 16 taps," said partner Paul Jacobs. "There are fire pits on the lower and upper decks. We really tried to craft a fun place to come to that the television and music is still there but not overwhelming."
The restaurant and bar has 500 beers at all times with 23,000 approved through their system allowing them to change it up.
Jacobs has been a partner along with Shon Craig for the past four years and in that time has helped to implement an extended tavern menu and craft beer selection.
"We have an ear for our customers and the brand has evolved into what the customers are looking for," Jacobs said. "The menu started off small but over the last three years it has grown to feature bold, classic and innovative dishes."
The grand opening takes place on Thursday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at 5311 Avion Park Drive to benefit Canine Companions of Independence.
In a few weeks the location will begin serving brunch with menu items such as the hangover skillet, chicken and waffles, bottomless mimosas and bloody marys.
Depending on what the customers want, game and theme nights will follow in the future.
"Our focus is to understand the customers, listen to them and host parties that they want," Jacobs said. "We want their input."
