Brats and Beer: Wurstküche



Downtown L.A. now has a hip new eatery located in the Arts District. Wurstküche, which means sausage kitchen in German, serves an array of different sausages and reportedly has 24 beers on tap. Offering unique sausages like; buffalo, beef, and pork with chipotle sausage or alligator and hickory-smoked pork with rattlesnake and rabbit. Also available is the classic bratwurst, accompanied by fresh caramelized onions, grilled peppers and of course sauerkraut.

Inside Wurstkuche

Owners Joseph Pitruzzelli and Tyler Wilson thought through all the details even going so far as to request a green 15-minute curb-side parking area for take-out orders. The small restaurant is planning to expand to include a rooftop lounge where you can relax and enjoy one of their draft beers such as Aventinus Eisbock. Located at the corner of 3rd and Traction this is sure to be one of Downtown L.A.’s best spots for a quick lunch or a quite beer with friends.

    For those in the Seattle area you’ll have to travel over to Leavenworth to sample the beer and brats in our Bavarian Village. We are surrounded by wine country, but sausage and beer are the favorite cuisine.

    We are planning a trip Leavenworth next month, I’ve been hearing great things and can’t wait to get up there. If your available we will have to meet for a pint.

    Just had lunch there today – rabbit, veal and pork sausage with grilled onions was delicious, though I recommend more than one! Spicy mustard was also key. A couple of glasses of a Belgian Ale (they have at least a dozen or so, plus a lot of good beers on tap) washed it down nicely. It’s a buy-and-sit, so easy to get in and out quickly – either take it to go, or eat in their L.A. take on a German beer hall. Will definitely be back soon!
