Don't let the fancy (and ad­dic­tive) en­cased meats at WVRST steal the thun­der from the note­wor­thy row of On­tario-fo­cused taps. The joint pro­nounced “Verst” is a the classedup Toron­to­nian ver­sion of a Ger­man so­cial staple: the beer hall. Elon­gated com­mu­nal seat­ing makes this a stel­lar choice for low­main­te­nance par­ties. Just so the cur­rently un­aware can avoid con­fu­sion and un­nec­es­sary panty-bunch­ing, WVRST doesn't do ta­ble ser­vice. Order at the counter (if you're lost, read the signs), take a num­ber (calm down, they'll give it to you), and your pint and sausage will be dropped off in no time. Psst: $5 glasses of On­tario craft ev­ery Mon­day. Prost! Years in op­er­a­tion Three Spe­cialty 24 taps plus On­tario cask, lots of lo­cal beer, with three taps re­served for in­ter­na­tional clas­sics like Pil­sner Urquell and Wei­hen­stephaner, and three taps ded­i­cated to lo­cal cider from Spirit Tree, West Av­enue and Twin Pines. Food House-made sausages on a bun and duck fat frites. Mmmm. Mess-hall-style ser­vice. Pa­tio None Hours Sun­day to Wed­nes­day 11:30 am to 11 pm, Thurs­day 11:30 am to mid­night, Fri­day and Satur­day 11:30 am to 1 am.
