WOB is with us. Opening its doors in mid-October, McHenry Row’s new World of Beer offers barstoolexplorers 50 rotating taps, one cask and more than 500 bottle choices, backed up by solid pub fare and a compact wine list for the hopless among us.
Settling in at the long, L-shaped dark wood bar or a nearby hightop, you’ll find a Red Bull-infused staff happy to pour you samples—and almost as knowledgeable about the extensive offerings as they think they are. With a large sheltered patio, a pocket stage for live music and plentiful but silent flat-screens, WOB draws an eclectic crowd on weeknights before shifting into “broverdrive” for the weekend.
Being WOB and not NOB (Nation, natch), the draft options run more toward international standard bearers than exotic domestics, but the draft lineup changes daily and will undoubtedly evolve over time. For now, though, there’s no Boh in WOB. It’s a new world in Locust Point. 1724 Whetstone Way, 410-752-2337, http://www.wobusa.com
