burgers/sausages and beer

This is actually a three part question.

I LOVE great beer and great burgers/fries/sausages.

Burgers:
Are there any places that have 10-40 fantastic beers, sorta like stanton public, but also have extremely good burgers! You know the $10+ burgers that use fancy cheeses like aged gruyere cheese, organic produce, thick-cut aged beef cooked medium rare, brioche bun, etc.

Sausage:
Ditto for a place with crazy good beer but also crazy good sausages and/or authentic belgian fries. I like exotic sausages like rabbit, rattlesnake, wild boar, lamb, great beer brats, etc. I don't need the sausages to be THAT exotic necessairly, but many times I like to get something different than polish, franks, and brats. If anything, if there are places with really nice brats and fries and great beer, that will suffice.

Most times I find a place with great beers but average burgers/sausages, or a place with really great burgers, but not much of a beer list to choose from.

Thanks

    Stanton Public? Are you talking about Stanton Social? Or Public? Or something else.

    If I recall recall, the following places have burgers and a variety of beers (on tap and bottled):
    Spitzer's Corner
    Irving Mill
    Resto
    Stand
    BLT Burger
    Royale
    Blue Smoke
    Black Iron

    For sausage, I'd look into the new Wechsler's Currywurst & Bratwurst in the East Village.

    For fries and beers, try Vol de Nuit.

      Thanks for the list.

      Stanton Public is a place in the LES that has really great beers.
      http://www.stantonpublic.com/
      I
      like the hard to find belgians and microbrews that make Sierra Nevada look like budweiser (in terms of volume not quality), etc.

      Spitzer's Corner was spot on! I cant believe I forgot about this place. I passed by it last time I was visiting Manhattan last year and made a mental note.

      As for the sausage place, you nailed it. I looked up some places that came up that were related to Wchsler's and I found 4 others. I think I am good on the brat and beer front.

      I think Black Iron Burger Shop was also intriguing in the list.

      Thanks for the great rec!

      For a really large beer selection and a first rate burger the Waterfront Ale House is a top choice.

        The B Cafes (UES and UWS) have a fairly extensive and well-chosen beer selection and fantastic fries. They also have a good-looking burger that I haven't actually tried. I'm pretty sure it's served on a brioche bun.
