“Simple, well-executed concept of beer, sausages, and fries”

I love the business model for this place, which embraces the wonderful world of craft beers - no Miller or Coors to be found (thank God!). Behind the bar there's an informative electronic display of all the craft brews currently on tap, so each visit presents a different selection to choose from. Of course, it's nice to have something to eat, and the focus here is on sausages served on a bun with a choice of toppings. Their menu shows 9 classic sausages (including 3 vegan), 9 "gourmet" sausages, plus a rotating selection of exotic sausages. If you're not into sausages, there are also 3 types of grilled cheese sandwiches to choose from. Two sides: duck fat fries (with a variety of dipping sauces to choose from) and poutine (which I'd rather order up in Canada where they *know* their poutine). Had a beer, a beerwurst sausage, and fries, all of which was very tasty. I'll be making a beeline to this place the next time I'm in San Jose!

Nice place in downtown San Jose to grab a craft beer and a delicious sausage sandwich at a reasonable price. Friendly staff and cool atmosphere

The food was average, the wait staff was good. However, for a large group they brought one big check. When we asked to split up the check for us they said they would not. They would only divide the total check by the number of people at the table. Because they would not accommodate us it took us 20 minutes to separate out the bill our selves. Poor customer experience

A great selection of real beers - some with eye-watering, medically-unwise strengths, but take it easy and mull over your choices with the friendly, knowledgeable staff, pace yourself, have a really tasty, well-cooked bratwurst alongside and it's a great place to visit. Good value and a relaxed atmosphere.

Loved it - and came back with a business colleague a few days later.

Glad I didn't. The bratwurst are excellent as are the fries! Great beer selection. Stools by the window make it nice when dining alone!
