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.
Love the huge communal tables, nice beer selection, food is incredible. Love rhe duck fat fries, yes the duck fat makes a difference. Great place to check out with a large group, staff is incredibly friendly, a great place for a pint and a sausage.
Beautiful place, well decorated with a medium sized bar and long stools. They do serve beer flights but only of pre-selected beers (which are boring macro brews), the rest come in either as 1/2 pint or pint. The selection is good, the service is super and the food is really great. I loved this place, very worth the visit.
Popped in here on a Sunday evening and they had a vertical offering of Sawdust City’s Long Dark Voyage. Killer offering. I hadn’t known you could age draft beer, but I’m sure glad they did! the 2014 was my fave. The sausages are unreal and service was excellent, Michelle and Christian (hoping i got names right) were charming and engaging at the bar.
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.

Fantastic! Simple menu, beer and sausages. I like Wvrst take a chance on smaller start up craft breweries so you’ll often see outstanding beer here that you won’t see anywhere else.At the same time they wwill also bring in Quebec beer and popular seasonals from bigger breweries. $5 Ontario craft beer pints on Mondays are the real deal.
Great service, staff know their beer and thee food is simple and tasty.
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.
Beau restaurant avec des tables communes. Le choix de nourriture est plutôt limité (saucisses) mais excellent. Beau choix de bières en fût, environ une vingtaine de bières ontarienne et un grand choix de bières en bouteilles. (Avec des prix plutôt élevés). Service efficace et sympathique, les prix sont un peu élevés, mais bon on est à Toronto.
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.
Visited on a Tuesday for lunch. Large place with long communal tables, some seating by the windows and a more private area. Huge red shiny brick wall and hundreds of little lights hanging from the ceiling. Great ambiance. Service is excellent, you order at the counter they give you a number and serve you at your table. About 20 taps, mostly local seasonals, some European classics and a couple good Quebec’s beers. I didn’t care much about the bottle list, it seemed pretty solid. Food-wise, there’s a wide selection of delicious sausages and you absolutely have to try du duck fat fries. It’s not cheap by any means but I would definitly come back.
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.
