Huntington Edition: Bahnhof WVrsthaus & Biergarten


BanhofThe long awaited German beer garden in Huntington is open.

Bahnhof WVrsthaus and Biergarten, located at 747 7th Avenue in Huntington, has brought German-inspired food and beer to the city. The German gastropub opened in April, and has been the talk of the town, so when I made my way to Huntington, it was a must-stop along my tour.

The outside is pretty cool, with a large outdoor space on two levels that is shaded, and the interior features exposed brick, modern light fixtures, and a sort-of industrial feel.

BanhofThe restaurant is under the same ownership as Black Sheep Burrito & Brews, so I was positive the food was sure to impress. The owners say everything they do is housemade - including grinding their own and casing their own sausages, as well as the sauces and sides.


HuntingtonThe menu features various sausages served on kolache - a type of pastry. Sausages like their house brat, Korean beef, Mexican chorizo, currywurst, breakfst, chicken & herb, greek lamb, Moroccan lamb and frankfurter. They also have entrees lie wienerschnitzel, jagaerschnitzel and Appalachian pork schnitzel.

HuntingtonBut, the best way to get a little of everything? Definitely the "Sausage Party" - choose from three of the haus-cranked sausages, haus pretzel, deviled eggs, cornichon, bread and butter pickles, pickled onion, charmoula ailoi, mountain mustard and bavarian mustard.

BanhofFor the sausages, I went with the house brat (pork, beer, caraway), Korean beef (ginger, sesame, tamari), and currywurst (pork, vindaloo, tuermeric).



HuntingtonFirst of all, I forgot how good a soft pretzel could be. MAN, was this good. The giant flecks of salt and dipped in the Mountain Mustard - just the bomb. The deviled eggs were good, and the sausages were great! You can tell they are homemade. They were flavorful, intriguing and super filling.

BanhofIt's definitely easy to get full pretty quickly here - but don't forget, they also have more than 30 beers on tap, including lots of local options too.

HuntingtonWhat a cool addition to the West Virginia food scene. If you're looking to indulge, get your fill and get a good beer while you're at it, look no further.
