Great beer bar in the 6th district near the Westbahnhoff train station. Atmosphere is very nice, bar is constructed of gorgeous dark wood and houses what appear to be interesting antique taps. Beer list includes 6 or 7 taps with mainly Austrian beers, as well as a Belgian focused bottle list of around 70 beers. This looks to be the best selection in Vienna. Served in proper glassware, although a little colder than ideal. Didn’t try the food, though the selection is primarily limited to snacks. If you are in Vienna and looking for a good beer bar, be sure to check it out.
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.
Very small, cosy and intimate beer bar close to the Westbahnhof. Decent range of Austrian beers (around 6) on draught. Extensive and exciting range of Belgium beers, mostly around €4.30. Nice selection of German beers, for example...Ayinger Celebrator and Schneider Aventinus. I’ve been there are few times now and bar staff are very friendly and attentive. It can get very smokey as it is only a small location and there is nowhere the smoke to escape. Most beers served in proper glassware but my only real criticism is that they serve the beers at a temperature that is way to cold. Overall...a "must-visit" location in Vienna.
Not far away from U3/U6 Westbahnhof. Dark, wooden pub with dim lights. Seven beers on tap and a not very impressing selection of several beers from european countries like Austria, Germany, Netherlands and United Kingdom. Very interesting and hugh belgian beer selection which is even more hugh in December when they have special christmas beers. Prices are very good when you look around the other destinations, I also couldn’t find many belgian beers anyone else. Of course the food selection is poor and when there are many people, it take´s some time to get the beers. Summa sumarum some beers from Austria (tap/bottle), Germany, Netherlands and United Kingdom and many, many belgian beers with poor food selection in a dark pub.
Traditional Austrian Wirtshaus with the best selection of Belgian beers in Vienna. Limited selection of draught beer, but two pages of Belgian bottled beer alone. Prices are reasonable and service is good.
Nice location, not too far from the underground. Food selection is pretty poor. Overall highly recommended!

Once you’ve became accustomed to the rather gloomy interior, this is really a nice place to visit and have a beer. The beer selection consists of austrian, german and belgian beers, with the vast majority being from belgium. The beers are served with the proper glassware but a little too cold for my liking. The service is really friendly, especially the owner. To quote my girlfriend, she is most likely the friendliest waitress you’ll meet in Vienna. Only a few snacks available.
