Great little beer bar stocking an extensive Belgian and German bottle list. Also a half dozen taps of local Austrian beer. A few nice finds like Pannepot and De Dolle and Urthel beers. Reasonably priced as well. The only flaw is that it can get very smoky inside when busy. A must in Vienna if you are after great beer and something different.

Bit of a dead pub offering beers from non multinationals... which is always good... too laid back and service showed.

Very good selection of Belgium, German and Austrian beers. Normally 5 beers on draft, including Hop Devil from 1516. Unfortunately the service is very poor.

Nice place for beer in Vienna, very good selection of Austrian and German beers, with pretty basic Belgians. Prices could be lower, but nevertheless are acceptable. I agree with mross that most of the beers are served too cold.

Unintersting selection on tap. I’d say head straight to the bottles. That said, they had bottles that were not listed in the menu. On my visit they had all the beers from the Kocour brewery of Czech Republic. Don’t hesitate to ask the staff for any non-listed brews, they speak a very good english. Ambiance was really nice. The jazz music paired well with the candle lights.

Propably the bar in Austria with the best selection from Belgium! Very extensive, rotating beer list with some great Belgian or German beers you won’t find elsewhere in Austria! They also always take care of Austrian craft beer with a small, rotating offering. The service is average and they almost have no food. The bar is always crowded, reservation recommended! In summer they also have a nice sidewalk cafe.

Best beer bar with belgium beers (over 70) in Austria. Some german classics (Schneider, Schlenkerla, Weltenburger) and a good selection of austrian beers (incl. the 1516 Hop Devil). Don’t expect to eat there, they offer only some small snacks.

Pre-Ratebeer this used to be my favorite beer pub in Vienna, mainly because of the extensive list of belgian beers. I gave it another try yesterday, unfortunatly I was not fully satisfied. Upon entering we were greeted with a rather unpleasant smell, probably a mixture of bad air, food smells and smoke (the pub has a smoking section). We found a table right away, which was lucky, because the place is not so big, and usually its quite full. We ordered two beers, my gf a belgian one, I ordered a bottle from a small austrian brewery. Because of the smell in the pub, I couldnt really make out so much of the smell of the beer. After a little while I also found out that there wasnt so much smell to the beer mainly because my beer was served too cold. My gfs beer was fine (the belgian one). We went for another round (one austrian, one british beer) and again both beers were way too cold.
In previous visits, I never liked the austrian beers Känguruh had on offer. I realize now, that I probably didnt like them because they were also served way too cold, meaning they just couldnt live up to their full potential.
So if you go there, either wait until your beer warms up, or go for one of the belgian beers, in our small sample the belgian beer was the one that had a warmer temperature.
Price-wise, in camparison to all the other "Craft Beer" pubs in Vienna, the prices at kanguruh are very good. Most of the austrian beers can be had for 3,80 euros for 0,33l. while most of the belgian beers are 4,30 euros (a couple even 3,80 too), except the big bottles (0,75l) of course. usually the other craft places in Vienna sell all their foreign stuff for prices of at least 5 euros and up..
For nostalgic reasons I gave it a rather good rating. And in comparison to the other places it proably still is ahead, or there just isnt that much competition quality-wise in Vienna right now..

Quite small and cosy, which could be a plus, but also makes the bar quite full quite often. Dividing the smoking section makes no difference as the whole bar is full of smoke on a full night. The dim lights make it hard to judge the appearance of the beers. However everything else is superb. The prices are competitive, the selection of Belgian beers is awesome and the waiters serving tables helps a lot when the place is full. Sorry for the harsh opening. This is a really good bar worth visiting when in Vienna.

Nice little watering hole. The Some of the beers in the drinks card wasn’t available. They had some nice US style IPAs but no stouts.
