Dog Haus --- the craft casual concept with gourmet all-beef hot dogs, handcrafted sausages, Black Angus beef burgers, a one-of-a-kind fried chicken sandwich and local craft beers on tap --- is bringing “The Absolute Würst” to Gilbert on Nov. 16.
Located at 2224 E. Williams Field Road in the SanTan Village shopping center, the new restaurant will be Dog Haus’ first Biergarten location in Arizona, according to a release.
The custom-designed 2,900-square-foot restaurant will have a full bar with 24 beers on tap and will serve the brand’s signature Haus Cocktails – handcrafted by Phil Wills, as seen on "Bar Rescue."
To celebrate Dog Haus Biergarten SanTan Village’s grand opening, Franchisee owners Andi and Damon Ott, both of whom are Gilbert locals, will invite the community in for a free Haus Dog 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 16.
“We are excited to introduce Dog Haus to the East Valley and can’t wait to acquaint the community with our delicious all beef Haus Dogs, handcrafted proprietary Haus Sausages and Black Angus beef burgers,” Andi Ott said in the release. “We have formed a fantastic team, and in addition to the great food and wide selection of craft beers, we have one of the only dog-friendly patios in SanTan Village.”
On grand opening day, guests are invited to enjoy a free Haus Dog ( *Guests must download and scan the Dog Haus app to redeem) from a selection of Dog Haus’ seven signature hot dog creations, featuring all-beef handcrafted dogs (vegetarian options available upon request) with premium toppings, served on grilled King’s Hawaiian Rolls.
