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 Quebecís beers. I didnít care much about the bottle list, it seemed pretty solid. Food-wise, thereís a wide selection of delicious sausages and you absolutely have to try du duck fat fries. Itís 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 havenít 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.
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 youíre in the area, go for it.
Have visited on several occasions, usually for an event. Itís a huge room with a bar along one wall, numerous taps, and long benches for seating. You order food at the side kitchen and they come out to you when itís ready. Food is essentially an eclectic selection of different meat sausages. The events have been really fun but are usually quite packed so be prepared to wait in line. Delicious beers for the most part! It varies so much though that it really depends when you go. Definitely worth a visit if youíre in the area, plus itís not too far from several other good beer bars in the area.
Good location with a casual feel, nice to be able to get good simple food with nice craft beers. Selection of bottles is medium but expensive, some Belgians, taps are varied between international (always some German) and locals. Rotates often. Drafts are priced how youíd expect for Toronto. I really like the place.
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.
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.

Beer hall type place, had a great lunch and beers. Did a sampler of Germans/lagers then moved on to Ontario brews and a couple of Le trou du diable beers. Really liked this place, you like sausage and beer this is Nirvana.
Ended up here for some food and a beer after a conference that let out early (around 3ish) and had this place completely to ourselves. Its on the second floor with some nice windows overlooking King St and seating is more family style/German beer hall but its quite roomy. Since I can only rate on what I experienced the service was top notch not too mention that all servers have their cicerone server certification so know a fair amount about the beers. The food is excellent but obviously donít come here if you donít like sausages. The beer selection was decent, combination of German, Ontario and some Quebec, and they were happy to provide a sample of whatever I wanted but I think that was more because there was nobody there - the actual sample tray is preset based on their selection and you canít change anything.
This really is a íbeer hallí. You go up and order and pay, get a number, and theyíll bring you your food/drinks. Long tables fill the space, and you sit wherever you like, next to whoever happens to be there at the time. Music was kinda annoying, but then Iím not a big fan of hiphop/rap, so it may have been just the day I was there. Food was quite good: quality sausages and fries with a selection of dipping sauces; tried their currywurst, which was different but tasty. Husband had more traditional sausage on a bun which was really nicely done. Iíll probably stick to the sausage on the bun next time.
