TAMPA — A new World of Beer bar opens inside the Forum tonight, offering a higher-end option for beer lovers attending concerts and hockey games at the downtown arena.
The bar, located on the lower level, will carry an abbreviated selection compared to full-size World of Beer locations, with 10 beers on tap, including Goose Island Honker's Ale, Pilsner Urquell and Cigar City Jai Alai IPA. They'll also serve a selection of canned beers, beer-infused cocktails such as “beerberry cosmo” and “margarIPA” and wines.
It is the first World of Beer to open inside an arena, and the 46th nationwide for the chain, which is known for its highly trained bartenders and a massive selection of craft beers from around the world. World of Beer was founded in Tampa in 2007.
Singer Bruno Mars and Fitz and the Tantrums perform at the Forum tonight at 7:30.
