Those wanting to take their brew-loving palettes global could always find the perfect international beer for the occasion when visiting World of Beer at 335 George St.
These days, you won’t see the familiar black and gold World of Beer emblem outside of the busy bar, but you will see something new — the sign for Hub City Brewhouse, which has replaced World of Beer with a new food menu, music and atmosphere but the same enormous international beer menu.
Hub City Brewhouse, owned by Will Mingo of Middlesex and managed by Ursula Cordero of New Brunswick, converted World of Beer into Hub City Brewhouse in September after much feedback from bar regulars.
“The World of Beer brand is very Florida-based and -centric and there were a lot of things put forth that weren’t the best fit for New Brunswick,” said Mingo, who also owned the New Brunswick World of Beer location since it opened about three years ago. “We wanted to become hyperlocalized and better service our community.”
