Sausage Fest at the Standard Tap
The Standard Tap’s week long Sausage Fest begins today. As the name implies there will be a full menu of sausage served up all week, including the talked about Beer Meat Plate. Just how serious is the Standard Tap about Sausage Fest? So serious they have a dancing neon sausage in the window.
During Sausage Fest the Tap will also be offering 20 ounce steins for the same price as 16 ounce pints. The quantity of steins is limited though, so get there soon.
