Friends brought us there for Sunday brunch prior to our flight back to Minnesota. This restaurant and bar specializes in (surprise!) sausage and beer. They have 32 beers on tap a ton more in bottle to choose from. Looking at the oh-so-subtle sign out front, I would never have even noticed this place much less stopped in. They have an old fashioned long bar and a bunch of old poorly taxidermied animals on the walls, giving it a 1940-50's feel. Tin ceilings and truck-stop stools complete the picture. I tried a couple of great beers here, including two different Gose beers! The brunch food was all amazing: can you say foie gras corn dogs? And bacon sausage! Sausage made out of bacon--the best of both worlds! I would come back for the food alone, but the varied tap list would keep me here a while! I was only sad that we had a flight scheduled and I couldn't hang out here as long as I would have liked.

I stopped in here on a recommendation from a bartender at the Map Room. It sits on a street corner. We walked into a place with exposed brick walls and wooden floors. The bar was to our right and seated around fifteen people. Above the bar was a chalkboard with 32 beers listed for the taps. They also gave us beer/food menus. I had not heard of a lot of the beers on the list. They had beers from Chicago to Founders to Germany to Belgium. I am not saying that I am a beer expert, but when I walk into a bar that has beers that I have not heard of I am usually salivating.

I started out with a Berliner Style Weisse w/potato. It was excellent. I moved on to a local brew called Troublesome from Off Color brewing. It was a gose which I have only had one other in that style. My friend and I each ordered a sandwich to split with each other. We had the veal bratwurst and the goat sausage. Both sandwiches were delicious and reasonably priced. I finished with a Freigeist peated Abraxxxas. My friend had a Cuvée Des Jacobins Rouge which he absolutely loved.

The bartender seemed very knowledgeable of the beers. They also had a couple coolers with bottle selections. He did get a little wrapped up in his phone when we were trying to leave. The bathrooms were unisex and reminded me of a sauna. There was wood everywhere.

I really enjoyed this place. I liked the gourmet treatment of simple sandwiches and the tap list was amazing. The beers are not cheap, but they get some less common beer, so I feel it is worth it. The food we tried was good and reasonably priced. I would recommend it for a try.
