World of Beer in Downtown Orlando on Lake Eola has had their tavern food menu debut months ago.

Since opening its first tavern in Tampa, Florida, in 2007, WOB has grown to more than 70 locations in 20 states.

Now, it’s time for UCF’s own World of Beer, one of the first World of Beer locations outside of Tampa to begin food service as well.

Currently, World of Beer offers over 500 craft beers and 40 rotating taps daily, but soon the “tavern” menu will roll out to all their locations.

Priced between $5 and $15, it’s not your typical pub bar food as you may surmise, but rather, a form of elevated bar food.

“The ‘Tavern Fare’ menu is part of an extensive renovation to the WOB-UCF Area tavern,” said Jeff Schilling general manager. “We now boast a 400-square foot kitchen and are looking forward to serving flavorsome food and beer pairings to all our guests.”

Here are some of the menu highlights, which changes seasonally:

o Black and Blue Flatbread— Blackened steak comes topped with caramelized onions, mushrooms, mozzarella and blue cheeses, fresh arugula and a sweet balsamic glaze.

o Chimay Burger — This half-pound, all-beef patty is made with Chimay classic cheese imported from Belgium. The cheese is made by the Trappist Monks of the Chimay Creamery, where Chimay Beer is also brewed. The burger is topped with sauce that is infused with Chimay White Triple Beer, sautéed onions and mushrooms.

o Guinness Brat Sliders — Guinness-infused bratwursts served on a warm pretzel rolls with caramelized onions and peppers with tangy Dijon.

o Chicken Pesto Sandwich — Beer-brined grilled chicken breasts topped with mozzarella cheese, basil and pine nut pesto and arugula, come served on a lightly toasted basil focaccia.

Here is our list of the top 5 items to try at World of Beer UCF:
