“Sausages, sauerkraut, kimchi, beer and mountain bikes - what else could you want?”

Love this place. I get a sausage (veggie & vegan available) with sauerkraut, their crazy-delicious homemade kimchi (spicy!), and then slather it in mustard from their selection of 10+ traditional and exotic mustards. An equally large selection of interesting hot sauces awaits, but with the kimchi, I skip that addition. Finally, add jalapeños, pepperoncini, or any number of relishes.

To that fine meal, add a beer. Choose from 20+. Then sit at the bar or at one of a number of big community tables, German bierhaus style, and meet some awesome folks from the neighborhood or those who are refueling after a big ride on the mountain.

I gave a 4 rating instead of a 5 because the beer always tastes fine, but is a little off. Not sure if they store it too warm, aren't cleaning the hoses & taps frequently enough, or if it's something that happens in your mouth when you've stuffed it with so many different spicy ingredients, but here in particular, the beer tastes...starchy? Sugary?

I still love the place regardless. You should go.

Had the Bavarian brat on a pretzel roll, came with some kraut. Slathered on some porter mustard and enjoyed a good brew to wash it down. Life is good.

I took my brother here for a quick lunch while running some errands for his upcoming wedding at nearby Deer Park Villa and Gestalt Haus is the kind of joint to have some quality time while enjoying the fine selection of bratwursts and Munich-style beer that you may not find anywhere else.

Cyclists make this their post ride destination for good reason. Prompt service, cold drinks (beer) and the self proclaimed 'French laundry of sausages '. Best bet is to get there when they open. Inside bike hangers fill up quickly as the conversation and laughter creates the ideal din following a long morning ride.
