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.

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 youíre aiming to try some Canadian local beer and good sausage, this is the stop for you.

Cool place plenty of potential. Get far too loud on weekends. Wish to see website that would tell you what is on tap. Service was ok , too busy to be court. Kielbasa with sourkraut I had was very good.

Came here with the lady and a group of friends in October 2011.
Atmosphere: sleek modern beer hall, vibrant colours, barebones layout with tons of seating, clearly visible tap list and lots of branded glassware on display. I like how they post when the draught lines were last cleaned.
Service: had to wait a while for our first round but eventually the bartender picked up the pace. Patrons are friendly as several people gave us their tokens for a Leafs ticket raffle that was going on by the bar.
Selection: solid mix of Ontario micros and European lagers on draught and a small but respectable bottle list that includes LCBO standouts and direct-from-brewery offerings (like Church Key Barley Legal). I had a Dieu du Ciel! Rosťe Díhibiscus on tap and a can of Central City Red Racer IPA; my girl enjoyed her pints of Stiegl and Pilsner Urquell.
Food: delicious sausages with wacky toppings and dipping sauces are the main attraction here. We shared the Bratwvrst with Dirty Duck Fat Fries and Jimiís Sweet Chili sauce, everything tasted awesome. Prices are steep but worth it.
Overall: WVRST offers high quality homemade sausages and an impressive range of craft beers in a fun and approachable beer hall environment. The selection keeps improving and theyíre now hosting Beer Schools, so I think the best is yet to come from this place. Itís a great option for beer geeks and foodies alike, and Iíll gladly return when I find myself west of downtown. Check it out.

Modern decor in a German themed beer hall. I sat at the bar and was served pretty quick. Good selection of beers on tap. The beers were excellent. I donít recommend the curry wurst. My drinking buddy definitely made a the better choice of a regular bratwurst. The place is rammed on weekend nights.

Great place to go. Not a great BEER place, but a great place. Iím biased, because sausage is my favorite food, and these were some excellent sausages, in a hip environment with a young, lively crowd. But the beer selection was expensive-ish ($8 for a cider?...meh.) and not that deep, though much of it was Canadian and unavailable outside of Canada.

This place has a unique layout with the whole German beer and sausage hall vibe. Lots of beers on tap, many of them German and Belgian and a good showing of local craft beers (Flying Monkeys, Beaus, Sawdust City etc.). They have a lot of good Quebec bottles as well, from DDC and Le Trou du Diable with trois mousquetiers on the way (as well as some Mikkeller bottles). Prices are alright for the tapped beer, though some of the bigger bottles are super expensive. Looks like they have lots of tap takeovers - Just missed a Trou du Diable and thereís a DDC takeover coming up this weekend I wonít be able to hit. The staff is great - they offer samples of tap beers and have good recommendations. Food is great too - all kinds of sausages from the ordinary to game meats like bison or elk. Good concept for a place.

Visited late night on September 30, 2011. A walk-up 2nd floor hipsters beerhall, with the long wooden tables and litre glass steins seemingly beamed up from Munich. Toronto isnít used to anything quite like this, and I enjoyed watching the Twentysomethings falling over their fedoras. My rating may be a bit lower than it deserves, as itís really a great place. My Chicago friends enjoyed it and now think Toronto is becoming a German Beer mecca. Well, not quite yet, but itís quite a change. Dark, loads of taps, I went for the Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest and my friends had the Paulaner. LOUD inside thanks to a young DJ spinning tracks from before his birthdate - we conversed via paper and pen! Friendly service. Wanna come back for those sausages! Definitely recommended.
