It’s hard to put a label on what Otto is but I like the concept a lot. A casual place to grab a bite to eat along with a carefully crafted, local beer selection.
Love the sliding garage door that they open when the weather is co-operative.
The inside is simple, homey and inviting. The owner is a very friendly guy and introduced himself, chatted with all the tables and thanked us for stopping by. Don’t see that type of hospitality too often these days.
The menu is quite simple with sausages provided by FUGE Fine Meat and some side dishes. You can upgrade your sausage to make it more substantial by opting for a bun or making it a currywurst. You can see closeups here (1, 2 and 3).
The beer menu is extensive and well thought out with most breweries coming from the Alberta region. Hello Blindman Brewery kettle sour.
There’s also a handful of wines (red, white, rose and prosecco). Wonder how well those wine cans taste.
Don’t forget to check out their blackboard for on tap beers and featured sausage of the day.
Dandy sour ($9.00 pint)
This was on their blackboard on tap menu. Anything with a sour, I’m game especially since I’ve been wanting to pay a visit to Dandy’s brewery in Calgary.
Currywurst with fries ($13.00)
We were able to sub in the sausage of the day, the ramp wild onion, instead of the beef bratwurst it normally comes with. Fries were light and crispy, sausage was delicious and packed with flavour but the highlight was the currywurst itself. Addictive, sweet and with just the right amount of heat.
Perfect spot to grab a light meal and have a few drinks.
