World Of Beer UCF

Most of us Floridians are very familiar with the craft beer chain known as World Of Beer, especially since they started in Tampa.

Since opening that first location in 2007, WOB has grown to more than 70 locations in 20 states. What began as a neighborhood tavern to sample great craft beers and swap beer talk has grown into a unique cultural phenomenon celebrating the world of craft beers and camaraderie.

Now, in addition to 500 craft beers and 40 rotating taps daily, WOB is changing the game once again with a variety of delicious food that pairs perfectly to whatever you’re drinking at the moment. World of Beer UCF’s newest addition, the signature “Tavern Fare” menu features a variety of elevated comfort food that provides the perfect marriage of food and beer for the ultimate experience.

The “Tavern Fare” lineup of pub inspired foods has something for everyone with WOB tavern shares that include an authentic German Pretzel, Sriracha Lime Shrimp Tacos, Black and Blue Flatbread, Guinness Brat Sliders and Belgian Waffle S’Mores to name a few. The menu also has plenty of tasty and hearty sandwiches like the Chimay Burger, Chicken Pesto Sandwich and even a classic Reuben.

This pretzel’s original Bavarian recipe was created by Germany’s most sought after artisan pretzel baker, Ossi Piller, and dates back more than 100 years. Served with house made stone ground mustard, this pretzel was delicious and fun to eat all at once. For an additional $2.00 you can grab the house made beer cheese, which was pretty awesome too. Try it with a Narragansett Pale Lager.
The Spring Greens & Kale Salad features spring greens & kale with goat cheese, apples, sweet pickled red onions & candied pecans tossed in a Framboise vinaigrette. Pair it with St. Louis Premium Framboise.

A very impressive Artisan Sausage Board was served up with a trio of jalapeño cheddar, cracked black pepper and hickory smoked sausages. Served with spicy pickled green beans, peppadew peppers & our house made stone ground mustard. Pair it with Hacker Pschorr Oktoberfest.

Sriracha Lime Shrimp Tacos are stuffed with beer battered shrimp tossed in WOB’s homemade Sriracha lime aioli and served on tortillas with roasted corn and tomato salsa with shredded lettuce and fresh cilantro. Pair it with an IPA of your choice.

The Belgian Waffle S’mores are light & crispy, fresh baked, Belgian beer-infused waffles with toasted marshmallow, drizzled with a Kahlúa fudge sauce, & topped with graham cracker crumbles & powdered sugar. These were a most awesome dessert. Try them with a Sprecher Imperial Stout.

Priced between $5 and $15, every dish pairs perfectly with WOB-UCF’s vast selection of local and global craft beers, and are perfect to share with friends. At World of Beer, they want to take you on a taste journey so you can enjoy the great flavors and aromas of great beers, and enhance your experience with delicious food on the Tavern Fare menu. The combination gives you the ultimate craft tavern experience.

WOB UCF is open Monday to Sunday from 11:30 am until 2:00 am

Schumann’s Jäger Haus

25 W Church St.
Orlando, FL 32801

For some reason, when it comes to German cuisine in Orlando, your choices are pretty limited. The old stand by, and of my favorites Bauern Stube has always been consistently good, but its location on the other side of Orange avenue can be a bit of a journey sometimes. Of course over in Sanford there is the very popular Hollerbach’s Willow Tree Cafe that is also one of my favorite restaurants, but again it's in downtown Sanford. Now there is a third option for all of you German food aficionados out there… Schumann’s Jager House.

Schumann’s has quite the ideal location in the heart of downtown Orlando and is easy to get to for the most part. Schumann’s is the brainchild of the Mulvaney brothers who have been residents of Orlando since the early 1980's, and have owned and operated more than a dozen Irish Pubs in Florida throughout the years. This new venture takes a trip to Germany as a way to honor their step-father Ernie Schumann. Chef Ralph Oliver is the executive chef at Jager Haus and he has years of culinary arts study and has been an Executive Chef with some of the most prestigious restaurants in Central Florida. Chef Ralph came to Schumann’s with hopes of contributing some great culinary treats to the ‘new’ Church Street and downtown revitalization.

The menu has all of the stuff you would expect at a German restaurant. Bratwurst, Knockwurst, Schnitzel, Potato Pancakes and various entree selections. The inside of Schumann’s is very well done and decorated with the feel of an old world German beer hall and lodge. Jager Haus translated is Hunter’s House, and the interior here definitely gives off the vibe of a place one would enjoy fine German beers and freshly cooked meats after a day of hunting.

Köstritzer Schwarzbier is a dark beer that maintains a dark, rich color with a roasted aroma that contributes to its malty taste and a creamy finish.

The Schumann’s Sampler consists of Bavarian Brezen (Soft Pretzel), Frikadellen (German Style Meatballs), Kartoffelpuffer (Potato Pancakes) and comes with a variety of condiments and toppings. This a good way to get your taste buds ready for the flavors of Germany.

Jäger Schnitzel is a Breaded Pork or Chicken Cutlet with Mushroom demi glaze and a choice of two sides. You may also request, as I did to have it with veal. I chose mashed potatoes and green beans for my sides. My schnitzel was very tender and flavorful, and the mushroom demi glaze was excellent as well.

Bratwurst at Schumann’s is made with coarsely chopped pork and beef with blended natural spices. My dining companion chose Spatzle and red cabbage as a side.

The Traditional Reuben features corned beef, sauerkraut, gruyere, Haus-made dressing and is grilled on rye bread. This sandwich was pretty good, and Schumann’s has a few more listed on the menu in case you or someone in your dining party wants something a little less German.

Of course, no visit to a German restaurant with a good beer selection is complete until you get Das Boot. The famous drinking apparatus holds just about 3 litres and is a great way to get the party started at your table. We filled ours up with Schöfferhofer Hefeweizen wheat beer.

Some German restaurants are very strict on the old law that says you can never put it down once it comes to your table. It is believed to be bad luck if it touches the table before it is emptied. Our server John kept a watchful eye on our party of four, but told us it was ok if we needed to sit Das Boot down for a breather. You will need to hand over a credit card during the experience for Schumann’s to hold, just in case you accidently drop and break the boot. That will set you back $150.

Overall, we had a great time and really enjoyed the food. Our server John was very knowledgeable and quite entertaining on a Friday evening. As I mentioned earlier the decor and layout of Schumann’s is very cool, and really helps to set the mood for your dining experience. I will definitely return for some more gute zeiten at Schumann’s and recommend you to try them out as well.
