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.

Not sure why it took me so long to discover this place. Extremely solid beer selection, and sausage is one of my favourite foods. Plus, cool setting: big communal tables, and an unofficial house rule against popped collars.

Large communial tables greet you. Music was too loud when I was there but blame that on DDC - they supplied the DJ. Menu is reasonably sized and the Wvrst are excellent (Deer Wvrst is the way to go). Good selection of Toronto-area Craft taps and some surprises from Quebec. Couple Great lakes one-offs when I was here. knowledgable staff. Prices are reasonable.

Great place.. long benches and tables, and plenty of food and game sausage choices. About 16 taps for local craft beers and great service.

Great place to go. Not a great BEER place, but a great place. I’m 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.

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.
