National chain World of Beer has signaled its departure from Capitol Hill. It will be replaced by locally-owned 500 East, a "social house" with a decidedly beery focus. Capitol Hill Seattle spoke with an employee, who said to expect a renewed focus on local beer and a revamped food menu. World of Beer had been open in the 2,600 square foot space for little over a year.
