Want to give 5 stars but our order was fumbled. We were a group of 11 though and things did get corrected. Fantastic sausage and fries and outstanding beer. Definitely check this place out.

The Mexican veggie sausages are fantastic. Combined with some great beers, what's not to like. It was a bit hard to find a table and standing in line for drinks and to order food was not so fun.

Plenty of beers to try and the sausages were an unexpected treat. No problem sampling to ensure my wife and I both chose a brew we could relax with. The front area is quaint and the back area is cavernous and good for groups/events.

2 bar sections serving different brews with a wonderful patio. Their taps are 80% local and 20% craft. The beer selections were excellent. Food offerings are limited to sausages and fries, but there were many sausage options (the OG and blood sausage were awesome) and they have duck fat fries. When in San Jose - go to Original Gravity!

Went with wife and friends for the first time. 3 stars for the sausages and other food that I didn't try on this trip. minus 2 stars for the lack of beer tasting before buying a beer. I ordered a Mai Tai brand beer and it sucked just way too bitter. I drank half of it only because the smell... More

Nice selection of beers in varying sizes. Seating is plentiful. Back room is quieter enabling you to converse with others.

If you don't need a huge choice of food options and are more interested in a selection of real beers then this is the place. I didn't see an easy place to park but found a spot on a street a block away. Order at one of two bars (one was open when I was there) and find a table... More

I stopped in to Original Gravity for dinner. They have a limited food menu and a favorable craft beer menu. Dinner is brats, fries or grilled cheese, not plane Jane stuff. The beer selection is for those who like big beers. They do have a sympathy beer or two if you are a domestic beer fan.

Interesting concept. Liked the homemade sausages and 35 tap beer selection. Seemed like a fun hipster hangout. Brats were inexpensive, filling, and not earth shatteringly wonderful but good. Great place for a quick cheap eat.
