The Fifth Amendment Alehouse will soft-open in Santa Monica this week to finally endow Westsiders with a sausage party to call their own. Fifth is stuffed inside of a tiny Broadway space of amber-tinted woods near the 3rd St. Promenade, with 20 craft beers on tap from The States, Belgium, and Germany. They’re especially excited to stuff you with their sausage though, joining Wurstkuche, Spoc’s, and Downtown’s upcoming Schmidt’s Brauhaus in a citywide wiener-obsession. Fifth spans the globe for its artisan sausage recipes, including a Sonoran-style bacon-wrapped hot dog, elk sausage with porcini mushrooms, and venison with Merlot & blueberries, among others. While still sporting Evergreen Tea House signage, a note left in the gastro-pub says it will be soft open tonight for llama burgers, while their Twitter says tomorrow, and the website says Thursday. Check out the full menu from Fifth’s website, but note that, much like its opening date, plans can change on a whim:
