With a plethora of beer varieties populating its three locations, Beers of the World equips brew-loving beerheads with a bevy of bottles. In addition to marketing microbrews in cases (starting at $19.99), 12 packs (starting at $10.99), and six packs (starting at $6.95), Beers of the World encourages imbibers to purchase bottles individually (starting at $1.35), and thereby groove on a greater variety of fermented fizzies. Evaluate imported brews, such as the Hofbrauhaus Wolters German Pilsener ($19.99/case), against Mendocino Black Hawk Stout ($24.79/case), Genesee Cream Ale ($14.49/30-pack), and other American standouts in an awkward thumb-war. As brew buffs for more than two decades, Beers of the World grants expert advice to more-amateur enthusiasts, and information about beer can be found online.
