Fodor's Expert Review Ottakringer Brauerei
Outside the City Center Winery/Brewery/Distillery Fodor's Choice
Founded in 1837, and located in the historic workers' district of the same name and featuring an in-house well from which the water for the entire production is still sourced, the independent Ottakring Brewery is a traditional brewery with roots. It also has a creative, modern outlook, beer tastings, tours, workshops, festivals, and a craft beer sub-brand (BrauWerk) offering IPAs, Porters, and Vienna Pale Ales with fun names and flavors, which add up to a thoroughly cool old brand and a must-do beer experience. Register in advance online for guided tours (Monday to Friday 9 to 5:30). Guided tours meet at the Ottakringer Shop, Ottakringer Strasse 95.
