World of Beer is a beer lover’s paradise, but it doesn’t cater to only the pint-raising crowd. A friendly atmosphere and excellent food selections make this fun for everyone regardless of their taste in a beverage.

Even though there are other options, the beer selection at World of Beer Destin remains the main highlight. The restaurant features a bevy of 50 craft brews on tap and another 500+ in bottles. Porters, Stouts, Saisons, and IPAs are just a small sampling of the regular offerings, and a rotation of seasonal and specialty brews ensures there’s always something new on the menu. Of course, the many different styles represent and come from countries all over the world.

The knowledgeable and experienced wait staff at World of Beer are able to offer guidance through the large selection of beers, helping both novice and experienced brew heads find their favorite or something new to try.

Other beverage options include sodas, wines, and a full array of spirits that range from hard scotch on the rocks to sweetly mixed cocktails. Hand-crafted mules, house-made sangria, and hand-crafted mules are especially popular options, but there’s something for every taste.

For soaking up the beverages, a full menu is available regardless of the time of day. From “beerunch” to the more traditional lunch and dinner meals, breakfast dishes, flatbreads, burgers, salads, tacos, and more help fill the stomach with something other than a beverage. Naturally, the classic beer sponge is a customer favorite — and it’s one of the biggest pretzels you’ll find anywhere.

The wide selection at World of Beer Destin makes this a go-to spot for any brew enthusiast, and there are enough other choices that they can bring their non-beer-loving friends and family. Stop in for one pint or a full meal, and bring the whole group with you.

A few of our menu favorites at World of Beer include:

ANY Draft Beer
With so many to choose from, it’s impossible to pick one draft beer that will suit everyone’s taste. Ask the staff for a few recommendations based on your preferences, and pick whichever piques your interest.

Tito’s American Mule
Made with Tito’s Handmade Vodka, this is a traditional Moscow mule that has just three ingredients. The trio of vodka, fresh lime, and ginger beer shines in the traditional mug.

German Pretzel with Ale Beer Cheese
Regardless of whether you’re enjoying a beer, go for the classic beer sponge. It’s crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside, and as large as your head. Add the house-made ale beer cheese for some dipping sauce, and share (or don’t).

Chipotle Chicken Sandwich
Navigating the beer selection may require some guidance, but you know how to eat a delicious Chipotle Chicken Sandwich. Beer-brined chicken breast covered in Swiss cheese and chipotle sauce will definitely do you good. Comes on a toasted brioche bun with bacon, lettuce, and tomato!

Beef Barbacoa Tacos
Why not get some tasty tacos while in Destin? Try the Beef Barbacoa Tacos with some Sriracha Lime Aioli! Comes with chips, roasted tomato, and corn salsa.

Insider Tips:
-Unsure about a specific draft brew that was recommended? Ask to try a sample before you make your final selection. Samples of any beer on tap are available.
-Did you fall in love with a canned or bottled beer that’s hard to find in the area? Add a few to your tab when you’re finished, and take them home.
