Reader: Forget Jax -- what's the World of Beer?

Jax is about to add a fourth location, in the new City Set development in Glendale, behind the Hilton Garden Inn at the corner of Colorado Boulevard and Cherry Creek Drive -- an area definitely shy of good restaurant options. Jax isn't the only eatery going into the project: Udi's will have an outlet there, and there other other spaces available.

Some readers worry about parking at that location, another urges getting the downtown Jax's act together before opening another location. And yet another really studied that City Set map...

And then, not surprisingly, Mantonat got to the heart of the matter:

I think the real story here is: what's that thing on the map labeled "World of Beer" and when will it open?

Is this portion of Denver/Glendale a vast wasteland for good food? How do you think Jax will do in this area? And what is World of Beer, anyway?
