Craft Beer Tavern Opening in Renton, the First Northwest Location for the Growing Franchise
World of Beer (WOB) a thriving beer-centric tavern boasting an extensive collection of brews from around the globe, will expand into the Seattle area in Renton, Washington at 822 N 10th Place, on April 22, 2013. This is World of Beer’s 40th location, and its first location in Washington. WOB Renton will boast over 500 bottles of beer and 50 rotating taps.
The new tavern is located in the heart of urban Renton. This location will partner with local restaurants such as The Rock, Vino at the Landing, Gyros House, Jimmy John’s, Fresh Way Pizza and Five Guys Burgers. Food delivery from these restaurants is available to all patrons.
“World of Beer Renton, with over 500 bottles and 50 rotating drafts of great craft beer, live entertainment and an educated, passionate staff is a truly uncommon establishment where the experience is as essential as the product,” says Lisa Weatherston, VP of Marketing for RKE Franchising Group.
After three years with World of Beer, Weatherston is excited to be a part of this new Renton location. At the opening, there will be raffle prizes throughout the night, with tickets available for $1.00. WOB Renton will send all proceeds from the raffle to the Renton Fire Department. The Clinton Ellison Experience will be featured as the evenings’ live entertainment at 8 pm.
