large interior, big production put into the character of the place, so much so that it comes off as artificial. bottles and draft beer available, a lot to choose from either way, including a vending machine inside the outer door so you can take one for a walk. beer quality mostly good, it’s probably the best brewery for the beer hunter in vienna, in terms of selection and quality, but there is a noticeable lack of authenticity at this place both in the design of the building and the design of the beer. big contrast between places like this and rural spots in germany and czech republic.

A large brewpub that probably isn’t as authentic as one would be led to believe. The regular house beers are all solid (although the chilli beer...what the?), but the seasonals I found to be really disappointing. Food is average and expensive for the portions and staff are hit or miss and generally students so don’t really care about the beer. But look it’s a fun place to enjoy good beers with friends.
Very excellent brewpub. Visited here in late December, 2011. Great beers of high quality and good range. Decent prices, good food, great service. No smoking, which is awesome. Nice ambiance. Good crowd. Great experience overall. The place is in a very convenient location and you can walk there from the city center. A must-visit if you’re in Vienna.
(Visited 04/2009): Siebensternbräu is located on the eastern part of the city and is only a short walk from the subway station. As far as driving there appeared to be street parking all around. It is in the museum district and not too difficult to find from the Danube port at all.
The interior is large with multiple levels of seating. The bar is on the main floor with a full view of some of the brewing equipment. Various breweriana adorns the walls as well. It is important to note there is a beer vending machine near the entrance where you deposit euros and get beer. Fantastic.
The beer selection is pretty good. There are 7 beers on draught including a couple specials/seasonals like a chili beer and hemp beer. The rest are of the German persuasion such as Helles, Dunkels and Marzen. Overall the beers were average to above average. Many of the same beers can be found in the aforementioned vending machine as well.
Service on a weekday evening at the bar was good. Despite a language gap the we were able to communicate and order small glasses (called pfiffs) of several of the beers to sample.
The food at 7 Stern is great. My chicken schnitzel and my wife’s pork and kraut were huge and enjoyable.
Overall this place is a must visit in Vienna.
The best beer in Vienna, and a good traditional bierstuebl atmosphere. All of their beers are excellent, though I go for the Maerzen (a Vienna Lager), Prager Dunkeles, and Bamberger Rauch personally. The food is also very good. The beer garden out back is nice in summer time.
A remarkable pub for their desire to experiment and the exquisite look of the placem fond on beer related accessories, having a nice ceiling window. Service is indeed atrocious in my experience as well, there were possibly more employees than customers and it tooks ages to get a new glass. Not too pricey, authentic food though and the location is easily reached from the center. An absolute must in Vienna, but don´t come in a rush.
7 Stern is a fairly large brew-pub located but a short walk from the museum quarter. The atmosphere at lunch-time was bustling. They had a wide selection of their house beers (about 10) including a seasonal bock. The food is traditional Austrian. Staff spoke good English. They also have an amazing beer vending machine to take away their beers! Nice place, but many of the beers are pretty so-so. Nonetheless a worthy beer stop in Vienna.
Easy-to-find brewpub close to Vienna shopping street Mariahilfer Straße. 8 beers on tap. The service was a bit angular. There is a beer vending machine in the entrance hall you can buy some cold take-away bottles.
