We were excited to attend the World of Beer preview opening Sunday night before Monday's formal opening featuring local breweries along with their craft cocktails, menu samples and live music.
There were some great raffles for several items including a tour of Upland Brewery. Unfortunately we didn't win, but Kosair Children's Hospital did. Raffle proceeds along with local brewery draft sales were donated to Kosair Children's Hospital through the Children's Hospital Foundation, a cause near and dear to our hearts. World of Beer belives in giving back to thier local communities and tonights event was the beginning.
Our first impressions, a bit like Drakes in look, but much better than Drakes in food. They appear to be very accomadative to their local markets and as you might guess they are working on a much more extended Bourbon list than what you would normally find. If you enjoy Beer hands down a winner too with over 50 on Tap with 20 regional favorites. Lots and lots of botttled beers too. Hand crafted cocktails round it all out.
They will formally open to the public Monday Nov 16th for lunch at 11:00 am. Tonight was so good that we've made lunch plans for Monday's officual opening.
Monday - Thursday 11am-12am
Friday - Saturday 11am-1am
