Boulder’s World of Beer Closed

Unpaid rent, eviction and now a big vacant space.

wob-logoI am, in general, unenthusiastic about chains, but my husband and I did try the Pearl Street location of Florida-based World of Beer, and other than the noise level inside, I thought it offered a good happy hour. Click here for my post.

Boulder has now lost is WOB, evicted due to more than a year’s unpaid rent of more than $116,000 for its 3,800-square- foot space at 921 Pearl Street.

It’s not the only shuttered WOB in the Denver/Boulder metro area. In February, the even larger 4,100 -square-foot LoDo location (1555 Blake Street, along the 16th Street Mall next to ChoLon Bistro) closed after less than two years of pulling and pouring. The remaining area WOBs (Belmar and CitySet in Glendale, which the company promotes as Cherry Creek) are reportedly unaffected by the other locations’ problems. So far, at least.
