World of Beer Coming to Crossgates Mall
From the Albany Business Review:
World of Beer, a growing franchise that serves more than 500 craft beers in a tavern-like atmosphere, is coming to Crossgates Mall in suburban Albany, New York.
World of Beer will open June 23 on the mall's lower level, across from Regal Cinemas.
Besides serving craft beers in bottles, World of Beer offers 56 beers on tap from more than 40 countries.
"We understand the Albany craft beer scene is thriving, and we hope to bring patrons the most unique and complex beers from local, domestic and international brewers," said Joe Rice, general manager.
The food menu includes many items that use beer as a key ingredient.
The business will host live entertainment Thursdays through Saturdays with no cover charge.
A staff of 60 full- and part-time employees has been hired.
World of Beer was founded in Tampa, Florida in 2007 and now has more than 54 franchises in the United States.
