'World of Beer is Tapped Out in Midtown'

Craft beer bar 'closed for business' without warning.

"World of Beer is tapped out in Midtown," What Now Atlanta (WNA) reader @jefejet at 2:49 a.m. this morning tweeted with a picture of a "closed for business" sign taped to the restaurant's main entrance.

WNA on a visit to the craft beer bar early Wednesday confirmed the news.

The beer-focus sports bar, situated on the ground-level of the Viewpoint condo building, at 855 Peachtree Street NE, has since disconnected its telephone.

World of Beer Midtown, the only Atlanta location for the chain, opened late-2015.

This is the second beer-centric casualty on the block of the Peachtree Street NE between 6th and 7th Streets.

Gordon Biersch across the road shuttered at the end of 2017.

Representatives for the craft beer concept did not immediately return WNA's request for comment.

  1. I am a craft beer lover. Unfortunately, that's all there was. The food was mediocre at best . . . went once and never returned. WOB sounded like the right concept for the location, but the execution was subpar. The beer list, though, was great!

    1. Totally this. ^^^ Beer flights and giant pretzels with cheese dip. It was the only reason I ever went; everything else was just meh and the service always so spotty too (except if you sat at the bar). There are too many other options close to here for a patron to put up with that. But I do hope something else fun comes in here, because it is a great location. Something that keeps those pretzels please. 😉

  2. Is it due to lack of customer interest or (more likely) to the property owners seeing all the construction and getting greedy? Midtown Alliance is clueless about creating value in that location.
