I was visiting Toronto and checked with Ratebeer as to places. This was my second stop and after a very nice Great Lakes Lake effect IPA. Was recommended, I had a chance to meet the owners, Aldo and Bram. Both were extremely knowledgeable and made some great recommendations. Plan on coming back and enjoying the food as well!

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.

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 there’s a DDC takeover coming up this weekend I won’t 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.

A new Toronto fav for me. Fairly good beer selection, and the sausages and fries were all fantastic. Casual yet slightly trendy atmosphere. I’ll definitely go back the next time I’m in town.

I was really looking forward to this place, and it did not disappoint! A mix of "line up and order" service with table service, friendly knowledgable staff, and a very social feel to it. Love the wall decorated like the wall of a subway platform, with station name "WVRST". Elk sausage on a bun was delicious. Now let’s move past the misleading name and concentrate on what this place is REALLY about - beer! An incredible selection of nothing but quality beer (you won’t find Coors Light here). Big focus on Ontario and Quebec beer. Rotating taps end up giving you even more options than the menu leads you to believe. I was able to find some beers that have been on my "must try" list for some time here. Tap takeovers (Le Troue du Diable and Dieu du Ciel are coming up), Monday "craft beer" nights (with $5 craft beer pints), as well as other events make this an exciting place to come back to time and time again. This will have to be a regular stop for me when I am in town.

Wvrst is a unique and memorable restaurant in Toronto. The attention to detail in this place is terrific. I appreciate the aesthetic: simple writing on the wall, pared down menu, plain black tap handles with single letters of the alphabet stuck to the wall behind each one. The room is long, full of wooden ’beer hall’ picnic tables. Mixture of beer drinkers with glass handled 1 litre ’mass’ German lager beers and others with smaller Canadian draught pints and sausages on metal plates with wooden forks. Service was friendly. We arrived for lunch; it was not too busy. Bar tender knew her beer and poured many samples, all very fresh. Dieu du Ciel tasted wonderful! No TVs was a plus, though it looks like they pull down a projector screen for the Leafs game. Wvrst only serves sausage, frites and beer. Really good sausage, delicious frites and wonderful beer. Better to do three things so very well, than 30 things more forgettably. Beer hall tables make for a warm and fun place to sit with friends. Recommended.

Great Munich beer hall style. Great growing selection of beers with management very interested in growing the craft beer scene. Food is tremendous, just sausages and frites and my my they’re GREAT! Hipster-esq crowd means they serve Pabst etc but the craft beers far outnumber the macros. Great place. Talk of cask coming too..

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! Rosée D’hibiscus 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 Jimi’s 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 they’re now hosting Beer Schools, so I think the best is yet to come from this place. It’s a great option for beer geeks and foodies alike, and I’ll gladly return when I find myself west of downtown. Check it out.

Place is cool. Selection is better than your average craft beer bar. Nice Imports. Loud. Food is okay - best fries in Toronto.
