Really nice communal beer hall space. Service was pleasant and selection was reasonable. I had a hard time finding anything really interesting. Food was good if you like sausages. Prices were just too high. It would be unlikely that I would return.

A modern, functional bar (tiled walls and refectory style seating) with about 16 kegs, one cask and 30 or so bottles. They also had 21 different types of sausages served with dipping sauces and chips. (Visited 6 November 2012).

nate2g  (1094) Boomtown!, Australia | June 11, 2015
Large room with communal tables set up to replicate a modern German beer hall, or so I gather. One of the better taplists in town and the bartender really knew his stuff. As the name goes, they serve sausages from a selection of traditional or game meat. The bison hot dog I had was pretty weird. I can see this being popular with boisterous groups, rather than coming by for a quiet pint at the bar.

the atmosphere there is efficient, clean and very pleasant. Staff is most friendly, and were knowledgeable and straightforward about what the beers were about. Prices were reasonable by Toronto standards. Many taps dedicated to Ontario craft, and the allocation to European beers were differentiated from the standard macros. Decent and different bottle selection, and improving with an association for events with the BarVolo crew.

Odd that I hadn’t rated this place considering how many times I’ve been here. A big, bright cavernous space on King Street West with loads of large communal tables throughout and a bright industrial looking bar dominating the far end of the room. There is a food order area off to one side where you can order a lot of very tasty sausages. The vibe really depends on the time of day - it gets really loud late on Friday/weekends but midday is actually pretty chill. Great beer lists with a nice selection from around Ontario. There’s usually something new on and the bottle list is well chosen as well. Good knowledgeable servers too. You could do a whole lot worse than stopping by here. They host occasional events as well which are always a good time.

Visited in November 2014...What a nice place, plenty of sausages, decent beer selection, fantastic ambiance, friendly and fast service...the impetus here is more food than beer, but if you’re in the area, go for it.

One of the larger beer bars in Toronto I tend to come to Wvrst for beer events, or "outings" like someones birthday. It’s downtown location attracts a busy crowd on weekend evenings, so try to come earlier if you are looking for a quieter visit. The menu is not extensive, primarily featuring a selection of sausages all of which are pretty tasty available on a bun or on their own. Beer prices are not cheap, though the 1L steins can be a deal. Staff is friendly but vary in their beer knowledgability. Seating is "beer hall" style with a number of picnic tables and raised communal tables. Beer is bar service only, but you can order drinks with your food which will get delivered to your table. Approximately 10-15 taps I think? Nice spot, easy to get to downtown and well worth a visit, but if you are not looking to try the sausage there are other places in town that I would prioritize over this one if your time in Toronto is limited. The picnic table style seating can be awkward to get in and out of if you are tall and not small like myself. :)

KansaiBeerLvrs  (497) Kyoto, Japan | August 12, 2014| Updated October 6, 2014
On the 2nd floor was this huge concrete beer hall with long wooden tables, a sausage deli counter in the back and a long bar along one wall. While not exactly a craft bar they have a solid tap list and had a set 6 beer tasting set for 12$, I also grabbed a danger dog curry wurst which was pretty good. I loved the red tiled wall with WVRST written on it in the style of the Toronto subway stations. One negative - in my taster all the beers were in the wrong slots, I figured it out but it lowers the service mark and for beer newbies would be confusing - kind of unprofessional. The music was quite loud too, focusing on being hip rather than the beer. A good place for sausages though prices are high.

Neat restaurant/beer bar in Toronto. This is set up as a large communal hall with long tables, lots of open space. There is a counter to make your food orders and then you can sit down and wait for your food (or you can sit at the bar). The annoying thing about the bar was that they only listed the name of the brewer of the beers they had (ie Black Oak, Great Lakes) and you had to ask the brewer which specific beer they had (the other blackboard by the food ordering counter did list the beer name and brewer though). Anyway, the beer list was all local brews, nothing too crazy. The food is really why you come here - specialty sausages (I had the duck which was really good). Prices are typical for the area (ie pricey!). If you’re aiming to try some Canadian local beer and good sausage, this is the stop for you.

Nice sausage bar, with large German-style oktoberfest tables. Good beer selection, specially for bottles with some solid European imports which I haven’t seen anywhere else in town. Food is good too, obviously focused on all kinds of sausages. A bit pricey overall but a fun place to visit.
