Wurst Restaurant and Beer Hall Opens in Calgary

June 17, 2011

With so many fabulous events in this city and only one of me,  I was upset that I would have to miss the Wurst restaurant and Beer Hall on Wednesday night. Luckily a couple of my most fabulous friends took my spot. For the last 24 hours I have been trying to get the scoop, it seemed that night had gotten away on them and need a little extra time to recover… so what had I missed?  Here’s what one of them had to say:

When I found out that I would be taking the place of Mr. Fabulous and attending the opening of Wurst in Mission, I didn’t know what to expect. I knew that it was by the same people who brought us Mercato, and that this time they were venturing into German (or more specifically, Bavarian food) basically all the items you might find at Oktoberfest.

I had heard that these VIP events usually involve some complimentary food and drink, but Wurst pulled out all the stops; this party was a mixed crowd of good-looking people eating and drinking the finest Bavarian foods and Drinks to their heart’s content.

I never knew it, but apparently all my favorite foods are Bavarian; Venison Corn Dogs, Lamb Sliders, Stuffed Chicken Wings, along with a spread of smoked meats and Cheese fondue were among the delectable items. My favorite had to be the homemade pretzels and the Bison Profiteroles.

As this is a Bavarian Food and Beer House, the beer selection is extensive; 20 on tap, and plenty more in bottles. My favorite was Stiegl… in the 1 Litre Mug.

Something interesting at Wurst is their ‘Stein Wall’; for 250$ per year, you can keep your own beer stein in a private locker that only you and the manager have keys to. Part of the fee goes to charity, and although as of last night they are all sold out with no room left for Mr. Fab (he is going to be so upset), they are currently holding a contest to win one on facebook.

All in all, I approve: great food, great beer, a beautiful 2 floor space, and a great location should make Wurst the best new thing in Mission. Wurst opened to the public 06/16/2011 at 5pm
