Weíve stopped in here a few times during the day. Has a number of beers, but not really a "beer" bar. The vast majority of the taps were below average and common. The place itself is open with leather furniture, pool tables, tv - kind of a mix between upscale and dive. Didnít see anything I hadnít had before, but we got a gemini, CC Nealís, and a jai alai bottle. There are certainly worse places to drink a beer during the day, but Iím getting a little spoiled on bars. Try the paninis at the Italian deli next door. Oh, and there is a Knightly Spirits open a few doors down now, but the beer selection is fairly limited - have to go to Orange Blossom for the good stuff.
Stopped in on Dec. 2, 2012. Better part of 50 taps, flights available (5 for $10). Some good stuff on tap, including some local brews. Football on TV. No food. Waitress was introverted and crabby - she needs a new gig.
(Visited 08/2012): House Of Beer (not sure if it is affiliated with Dunedin) is located on Village Park off John Young and the Central FL Greeneway in a plaza. Plenty of parking out front.
Outside there is a small patio. The interior features a bar area on the right and a separate room on the left with booth and table seating along with pool tables. Brick walls and have a lot of hanging flags. The taps are featured beneath large mirrors behind the bar.
As for the beer selection, they have over 40 draughts with regional offerings from Cigar City and other craft brewers such as Victory, Brooklyn and Southern Tier. Some imports as well. As for bottles they have a couple hundred from which to choose, including Cigar City (Cucumber Saison was there on my visit), Bells, Oskar Blues, Lagunitas, Terrapin and many more. Again many imports too.
Service on a relatively busy weeknight was pretty good at the bar. I wouldnít call the bartender a beer expert but she was attentive and familiar with the menu.
I did not have any food on this visit.
Overall this is a pretty good spot to hit between the airport and Disney.
While sometimes the draft selections can grow a bit stale, this is my go-to beer bar. The staff is awesome and very friendly. Good selection and there are a lot of restaurants in walking distance.

Smallish place off of John Young Parkway. Probably 40 ish things on tap, almost all craft or imports but nothing that stood out as special. I chose the best option, a Bellís Expedition. It was a pricey... 4 beers were $31. Itís just way to much $ for where it is and nearly doulb what I would pay at Redlight. If Iím in the area it would be a good stop, but I still think Redlight Redlight is the best place in Orlando by far.

Another odd Orlando strip mall bar like World of Beer. This place was much less crowded than World of Beer. Decor is tons of craft beer flags and tins. Tap list was large but didnít have anything really that interesting besides CCB Hotter than Helles which was also at Redlight Redlight. More mainstream stuff like DFH. Had a good number of Bells bottles on the bottle list. Other than that, the bottle list didnít have anything that really stood out. A decent number of CCB beers both in 12oz and 750s. Service was interesting, some people were very nice and others werenít too impressed with their own tap list. So maybe I was there on a weak draft list day. Prices- definitely higher than Redlight Redlight. Nothing was $3-4 like at RR- everything was $5+. I think my CCB Hotter than Helles was $7 with tax. So,,,more like DC beer prices. Overall, it was an interesting place to visit, but I wasnít able to accomplish anything here that I couldnít accomplish at Redlight Redlight. I will say, however, that they do let you sit outside around a fire pit, which was pretty cool.
