This is the type of beer bar that we all hope to find a small, European style pub where patrons are enjoying some of the best beer to be found in a relaxing atmosphere. Upon entering, we were quickly greeted by the owner, Tony, who shared his passion for beer with us throughout our time at the bar. The selection is among the best in the Bay area, and the prices are very reasonable as well. Samples were provided upon request, and there was a lot to choose from 35 taps and likely over 100 bottles. The food we had was excellent and generally paired well with the beers. Overall, excellent beer bar where we could actually hear ourselves talking because there were no TVs and music was played at a reasonable volume. If you havenít been here yet, you donít know what you are missing.

At last a pub with a great atmosphere, and NO TVíS!! Nice to hear drinkers talking and enjoying the real feel of a traditional pub. OTH does have a slightly European touch to it. The only real problem that I can see about the place personally..........................is itís in Oldsmar, and I live in Largo!!!

Excellent idea! This tap house has an upscale European Pub ambiance. Great selection of beers on tap including many hard to find craft beers and Belgians. The bottle selection is also excellent. The owner Tony has very good taste in beer and selected a very good menu of beers. Heís also very knowledgeable and hands out the free samples in mass.

From first glance, the buildings exterior notifies the patron that he or she should prepare for an experience. Reminiscing of a beautiful Vanderbilt-esk crafted, cozy estate house bar. Itís just the place a beer geek would want to pass the hours. Every detail has been scrutinized, the staff, lighting, carpentry, sound system, furnishings, and most importantly... the beer menu.
In todayís age, itís a lot easier to present a sub-par atmosphere and beverage with little thought or effort exerted into ones concept. However, in the case of the Oldsmar Tap House, the overall action makes this establishment so damn exceptional! - This Place ROCKS! & BTWÖ I LOVE sandwiches!

A very solid beer bar. This is what World of Beer could have been from the beginning. Itís run by Tony, a passionate beer guy that understands he can make a profit and still put on some more esoteric beers. When you walk in and see the multiple unopened Dark Lord, Lost Abbey and other rares beers youíll know what I mean. Very simple menu comprised of a few Boarís Head sandwiches, a cheese platter, a sausage & cheese platter and a rotating soup. Relaxed, but not bland atmosphere. 35 taps. Decent sized bar and plenty of table seats. This is THE beer bar to go to in the Tampa area.

Best beer bar in Tampa, easily. Tony is a super friendly guy, and on top of that he is passionate and driven to have the best beer bar in the state. Also he is one of the most generous people I have ever come across, opened a bottle of Allagash Black for myself, Degarth and Ibrew2or3 to share, gave us some very generous samples of other beers, and to top all of that after hearing us pining over his two bottles, let the three of us kill his open bottle of Utopias. I donít know about you, but thatís fucking cool in my book.

Great beer bar - it reminds me of the places I frequented in the North East. The level of knowledge and service is fantastic. Every beer is served in the proper glass and at the proper temperature. The selection is as good as it gets in Florida. Food is pub fare, nothing too fancy but all of top quality. Highly recommended!!
