Praise for WVRST

Think classic German Beer Hall... or not. WVRST is NOT that. It's BETTER!! Anthony Bourdain Read More
Welcome to the Entertainment District’s latest success story. The name, pronounced “verst,” is imperfectly German, but the concept is genius. It’s simple, with just four things on the menu: beer, sausages, fries & dipping sauces. It’s unpretentious, with counter service and communal tables. And it’s fun. Plus the beer list is excellent.

Best for Group Friendly Because: Whether or not you come with a group, Wvrst's communal tables make you feel part of something greater than yourself. USA Today Read More
the range of combination between meats, toppings and dipping sauces is impressive along side the styled decor and friendly staff. And most importantly, they are some mighty fine sausages. BlogTO Read More
prides itself on its carefully curated collection of craft beers and ciders...with 24 rotating taps. WVRST also has a cellaring program, where many of the bottles won’t be opened for a decade or more. And should you need some guidance, the servers can help – they’re Cicerone-certified. Really, if you want to learn about and discover beers and ciders, this is the place. dine.TO Read More
Craft cider is a good alternative, since apples and pork are a classic match. nuvomagazine.com Read More
