americanized brewery in vienna, itís just not my bag. the 1516 hop devil was, honestly, superb, but the rest of the beer was so-so and the staff was inattentive (yes, by european standards). the interior seemed to be a cross between a TGIF and a night club. hideously lit interior was filled with cigarette smoke. the patio was better but smoke was still difficult to avoid. the neighborhood and character of the patrons (us ex-pats) was not attractive to my tastes.

Visited here on Thanksgiving Day, 2001. They had a great American-style meal available. My visit was pre-beer notes, but I noted this brewpub as "tops" so it mustíve been good.

(Visited 04/2009): This brewpub is located toward the south end of Vienna off of KrugerstraŖe near the Stadtpark. Not too terribly far from the subway so it is accessible from the Danube port. There is parking on the street immediately in front of the building as well.
There was a soccer game going on during our visit so the inside was absolutely packed with smoking patrons with no air conditioning. The brewpub is two levels with a bar on each. The lower level bar has a large chalkboard showing what beers are on tap, and there are high tables for seating. The rest of the place has table seating, and there is a patio out front, which is where we ended up.
The beer selection is decent. They have around 6 available and they seem to be more of an American influence than German/Austrian. Amber, Stout, IPA etc. The beers were slightly above average. We didnít try the Hop Devil because we assumed it was a guest tap...what are the odds?
Service was about what we expected for the region, coupled with the place being overflowed with raucous soccer fans. Our beers arrived fairly quickly once we were finally noticed and our check came shortly after we were able to get the serverís attention to ask for it.
We did not try any food on this visit.
Overall I enjoyed the experience and beer at 7 Stern more than at 1516, which seemed to have much more of a touristy feel. Still I would try to visit here again when it was less hectic to enjoy their beers in a more relaxed environment.

Not necessarily the most authentic spot in Vienna, but rather an americanised brewpub. The beers are absolutely top-notch and compete with 7 Stern for being the best in the city, hence the Country. A central position confirms it as an absolute must on your first day in Vienna. Rather trendy place with TV screens showing sports events and a high customer rotation. The service simply was the best I had in Vienna as well, very friendly waitressses.

Visited 1516 on a number of occasions and is consistently a decent place to drink and eat. The beers are pretty good, particularly the IPA, and good food to match. Itís nice to find somewhere with variety so thatís a plus. Service on my recent visits can be very hit or miss. A cool brewpub in Vienna.

One of the top beer destinations in Vienna, no question. They make a great range of beers, including nice examples of IPA, DIPA, Stout, etc., whereas many of the other Vienna brewpubs make only lagers. Great ambiance, very good food. Two floors - one smoking, one non-smoking. The location is quite central so itís easy to come here. A must-visit place for any RBian visiting Vienna.

I guess I came in on a bad day...Service was extreeeemely slow on this afternoon. There was one server for the entire bar area, which was full of patrons, so it took 25 minutes to get a beer given to us. Absolutely ridiculous. The guy was friendly and all, but he simply couldnít do more than he was doing at that moment. The place itself is a nice bar, quite different and more modern than the brewpubs/breweries you get in Central Europe or Germany. It definitely caters to tourists as English is spoken everywhere at all times. The styles brewed are decidedly adventurous for the region, but as a North American, I did not feel anything special was being brewed here. The only beer I loved was the Hop Devil, but that is not really theirs, is it? The kartoffelsuppe mit pancetta was a fine and creamy soup which hit the spot after long walks in the cold December air. That being said, I will come back to try the place again the next time I am in Vienna, but for now I am under the impression that some people love this

Slightly too hip, too crowded brewpub just a few minutes from the Opera. Donít really care for the Bar itself, but I love their beers. The best place to get Ales in Austria, I reckon, and they are always doing something nice. Their Hop Devil is fantastic, as were the Big Balls Lager and the Weizen Rauch Bock. (I was there many times over 6 months in 2006).

An American style brewpub in the centre of Vienna. The food was OK. They were out of some quite interesting beers and 1516 brews were decent. Wifi wasnít working. Would visit again if in Vienna.

Fun place with American-style beers. Most of the beers were clean but not my favorites. Food was good. Probably would visit again
