The World of Beer is undergoing a reinvention in Northern Virginia this week. The three franchises – Reston, Arlington, and Fairfax – have transitioned from World of Beer and will be known as CraftHouse.
The locations, owned by Eban Metz, have been laboring under the World of Beer logo since they opened, paying for the menus and supporting the computer systems. Metz believes that he could do so much more with an expanded beer selection and an updated menu without the World of Beer fees. The Fairfax location has already made the transition, and it is safe to say that the Reston and Arlington locations have likewise done the same.
The Fairfax location, because of it abundant outdoor area, is one of the top 10 locations for World of Beer, headquartered in Florida. The Reston location was within the top 10 until Fairfax opened, so two of its top flight locations will be leaving the fold, a fact not to be missed by World of Beer.
