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

Wolfies Pizzamia


1905 N. Orange Ave.
Orlando FL 32804
(407) 237-0921


Adding to that ever growing list of places I always mean to stop by and check out, but for whatever reason never seem to, is Wolfies Pizzamia. That's why I was excited to go to a recent blogger preview event to sample the menu and learn more about Wolfies.

Wolfies Pizzamia is owned by Michael Hennessey,  the same person who owns White Wolf Cafe, hence the name. Michael Hennessey has been in the restaurant business for a long time, but he really got started in the business by way of opening an antiques store.

In 1991 he purchased an old building in the quaint Ivanhoe neighborhood on Orange avenue and opened up the Orange Avenue Antique Mall. It was originally his idea to lease space to sellers of antiques and offer coffee, candy and ice cream to visitors. It did not take long before the antique store started to become more popular for its food than for the antiques found inside.

As the demand for food kept growing, eventually the antique store was a thing of the past and the restaurant was in full force. Of course a name change was in order so Hennessey named his new venture after his white German shepherd, Casper, who reminded him of a white wolf.

Nearly 22 years later White Wolf Cafe is still doing a pretty brisk business and has become a staple of the Ivanhoe and Downtown Orlando communities. In addition to an extravagant Sunday brunch,  the menu is full of salads, sandwiches, steaks, and seafood served up in a unique space that was never designed to be a restaurant. 

In opening Wolfies Pizzamia, Michael Hennessey had a similar idea to open up a restaurant in an unused space that was not really intended to be a restaurant. Just a few doors down from White Wolf Cafe, Wolfies has a very unique and rustic old world charm that is reminiscent of eateries in New York's west village.

Almost everything on the menu including all of the breads, pasta, dough, salumi, and most of the cheeses are made in house and what other ingredients they do use are sourced locally and sustainably when available. Chef AJ Haines even cures all of his meats and cheeses in house, so don't ask for boring old pepperoni on your pizza. All sausages and charcuterie are aged and seasoned in a charcuterie drying cabinet that is on display in the dining room.

We started our tasting adventure with a skewer of Compressed Melon topped with Prosciutto, Fried Basil and Blue Cheese.

A perfect savory and sweet treat to whet our appetites.


Our next dish was a Mini Charcuterie Plate of Bresaola, Filleto, House Cured Provolone with a baguette and a side of pig butter. 

The flavor from the house cured meats and cheese was superb.


Our first pizza was The College Park. It is topped with Bechamel, Mozzarella, Ricotta, Spinach, Heirloom Tomatoes and Mushrooms.



The second pizza we sampled was the Quatro Formagio, topped with Tomatoes, Mozzarella, Bleu Cheese, Brie, and Provolone.  




Our third pizza was the Burano that is topped with Mozzarella, Prosciutto, Arugula Salad and Goat Cheese.




The dough on all three pizzas was perfectly cooked with just the right amount of thickness and crispness to support all of the toppings. Everyone really enjoyed them. As I said earlier, don't ask for your basic pizza toppers like pepperoni here at Wolfies. All toppings available are of a gourmet quality and most of the meat choices consist of  Prosciutto, Sopressata, house made meatballs and house made sausage. 

Speaking of house made meatballs, our next dish was the House Made Meatballs with a garlic Crostini. 

These were very robust and full of flavor.




The Pasta Marinara was also a nice treat. 

The pasta is made in house and the accompanying sauce was delicious.


One of the highlights of the evening was the Red Wine Braised Beef Brisket.

It was served with truffle mashed potatoes, Broccolini, Onion Strings and a Red Wine glaze. The meat tasted phenomenal and I have to say  this is a must have dish at Wolfies.  

For dessert we had a Shot Glass Tiramisu with a Melletti Cioccolato Whip that was a Very light and flavorful ending to our evening.



I have to admit that i was really impressed with just about everything at Wolfies Pizzamia. From the fresh breads and house made pastas to the house cured meats and cheeses, Wolfies is a top notch Central Florida eatery that you should not overlook. I personally can not wait to return, and I recommend  you to check them out  soon.
