A Florida-based beer bar chain is making moves toward the great Boston area again, two years after plans for a World of Beer in Davis Square apparently fell through, Boston Restaurant Talk reported.

This time, a potential location has yet to be disclosed, but the blog notes the company is planning a mid-2016 debut.

A press released announced that a commitment to build a new World of Beer in the Boston area was signed last week, and the companies behind it will announce more details as they are fleshed out. A new tavern is also coming to Milford, Conn., the release indicates. World of Beer is based in Tampa and has more than 50 locations around the country. Currently, the closest outpost is in West Hartford, Conn.

The taverns have about 50 beers on draft from around the world (get it?) and an additional several hundred available in bottles. There's also a menu of pub fare, with items like German pretzels; fried fish and tots; burgers; and flatbread pizzas; and requisite beer style pairing recommendations.
