SF- Organic Cal-German with vegan dogs? Anyone tried Gestalt Haus?

Inside Scoop reports a new place on 16th that is a "take on a German sausage and beer house ... with ... organic and vegan dogs ... served until 2 a.m. Thursday through Sunday nights"

Sausages are by Montibella Sausage, Sonoma Sausage, Applegate Farms and Tofurky The organic buns are from Bay Bakery. The are 10 beers on tap served in pints and 1-liter steins. Plans for the future are 20 beers on tap.

The funny name alone seems to merit a visit.

More from Inside Scoop (scroll down). Some interesting stuff today.

  1. I know this is an old post and I'm not sure if anyone cares at this point, but wanted to report a Bad Food Happens to Good People moment at this joint. Somehow the idea of a bartender cooking a sausage didn't seem like a bad idea at the time - how much worse could it be than a backyard barbecue, or the Tamale Lady, for that matter? The answer is quite a bit worse. Ug. Nice enough beer selection but definitely avoid the dogs. You probably already know this. Adding insult to injury the service there is quite horrible. So really you may as well go to Monks Kettle or Elixir.

      Hey, it's nice someone reported after three years.

      There seem to be some board problems lately and it freaked me out to see my name attached to this post. I thought it was new and I know I didn't write anything about it recently.

      Well, thanks again for the upate and better recs.
