#1672 #S995 - The Wurst Place, Seattle - 2/3/2012
The Wurst Place has a sort of warehouse type of feel, like some brewpubs, with high ceilings, lots of wood, and fairly goofy artwork on the walls. And like a brewpub, it has a large selection of interesting beers on tap, with the emphasis on Belgian. But unlike a brewpub, it has a large selection of unusual sausages -- including rattlesnake and smoked elk with jalapeno.
I attended on opening night, and there definitely some bugs to be worked out.
These seemed to stymie them a bit more than necessary, e.g. it seemed to
take an inordinately long time for them to figure out that they could
forgo the non-working iPad-based credit card processing and at least
take orders from people with cash. But the servers were all helpful and
enthusiastic, which gives me faith in the service long term. The range
of beers and sausages definitely makes this worth a visit.
