World of Beer, a restaurant and bar that promises to carry a selection of 500 beers at all times, will open a Bethesda location in late 2016. A spokesperson for the chain confirmed the plans, but could not yet officially disclose the street address of the restaurant.
A source tells me it will be in this Artery Plaza space along Bethesda Avenue, where landlord The JBG Companies has promised to bring "Bethesda's next great restaurant."
Just coincidentally, work to remove the exterior arch there to create more space for patio seating began last week.
Their new Rockville location is scheduled to open in mid-April according to their landlord, Duball, LLC. It will be fascinating to see if the 500 beer selection can be pulled off under Montgomery County's antiquated government liquor monopoly system.
