This place is OK. The beer list is awesome. Their "Bangers" are kind of disappointing. They claim to be a sausage landmark, but all they really have are some dressed up hot dogs and 2 or 3 sausages. They’re pretty good, but not what I would expect from a sausage place.

Now for the service. Go read yelp. There's a lot of reviews on there about the staff being much more concerned with themselves than the customers. It’s true. These guys didn’t have the time to give a crap, even though the place was empty when we were there. Stop being assholes to your customers, and I’ll gladly come back. In the mean time, there’s a crap load of other bars with really good beer lists. Skip.

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.
