There seems to be a beer-centric tavern on every other street corner in Albany County. Well, get ready for one more, and this one is no buddy system startup.
The rapidly growing World of Beer tavern chain today announced the official opening date for its in-development Crossgates Mall venue in suburban Guilderland. It's Monday, June 23, opposite Regal Cinemas at the east side of the complex in the former J&A Prep Kitchen space.
The new venue, which will be only the company's second in the state -- the other is in Destiny USA in Syracuse -- will offer 56 beers on tap from more than 40 countries, as well as offering a beer-centric menu and hosting live music Thursday through Saturday nights. The menus are available online.
World of Beer started as a single retail location in Tampa, Fla., and today includes more than 50 locations dotting across the country, which is nearly double the number it had three years ago. The Crossgates hours will be Monday through Wednesday 11:30 a.m. to 1 a.m., Thursday through Saturday 11:30 a.m. to 2 a.m., and Sunday 11:30 a.m. to 1 a.m.
