We enjoyed the sausage, soup, and beers. Very friendly staff. Pretty out of the way, though, and we had to sit in traffic to get there.

Definitely stop by if you want to have a good bite and a beer or cider with your mates. Perfect spot for after a bike ride. It is family friendly so bring your kids.

Stopped here for beer and a snack. Were pleasantly surprised by the variety and quality of brats/sausages--organic chicken italian was actually good, not just seemingly healthy, and spicy chipotle brat a neat variation. Home made kimchi also good; although very hot. Must have 2 dozen beers and ciders on draft--we enjoyed a pomegranate apple cider and two different IPAs. Pretzels... More

If you are a biker going up and down Mt Tam or you are simply riding your motorbike through Fairfax this the place where to stop for a great draft beer and some delicious food.

This is the ritual hang out spot for any rides around the area. I typically stop by here after doing an alpine dam loop on the road or riding dirt on tamaRancho. They have great sausage options, as well as sides including the Bavarian potato salad. Sauerkraut are always on point for the beers that rotate on top are delicious.... More

If you are going to Fairfax to ride bikes this is a must on your travel plans. Cold Beer and the Sausage was incredible. Not sure if it was just because we had been riding all morning or if it was just that good but I would go back.

You don't have to be a bicyclist to enjoy the Gestalt Haus! Yes, the theme of the place and the hooks to hang your bicycle inside is fantastic. The combination of beers and the sausages seems never ending. You get to eat the sausage like a hot dog! Fun Place to Get a Quick Bite or linger with your bike... More

Went here not too long ago because I was craving a brat and I gave it a shot. First impression of the place is that it seems more like a warehouse than a pub. Second impression was that there were more people drinking beer then eating, so it's that type of place. Third, the brat I had was good but... More
