Strong beer, strong impact

Ottakringer Kultur-Reparatur-Seidl

We love Vienna and its many places that make it so special. One of them is the WUK. A place where art and culture bring people together, for over 160 years.

Countless concerts, exhibitions and parties have demanded a lot from the building - an extensive renovation of the historic building in Währinger Straße is urgently needed. That is why the help of each and every one of us is now required. With our seasonal strong beer "Kultur-Reparatur-Seidl" we have launched an initiative that makes helping twice as much fun.

What can you do? Very simple: drink beer. Because from the proceeds of every six pack Kultur-Reparatur-Seidl € 1,- is donated directly to the refurbishment of the WUK and thus to the preservation of art and culture in Vienna.

Our strong beer with a strong impact lives up to its name. 6.9% vol. and a perfect balance between strong hops and a concise malt aroma are really fun. The distinctive and full-bodied character of our Kultur-Reparatur-Seidl accompanies you in the colder months before Christmas and Easter.

You can find the Kultur-Reparatur-Seidl in our Ottakringer Shop and also in selected supermarkets in the Vienna area as well as in selected Viennese restaurants and cafés. For current information, please follow us on Facebook and Instagram.

WUK Vienna

The WUK is a 12,000 m2 stage and concert hall, exhibition hall and photo gallery, workshop and studio building, working space for socio-politically committed groups, place for education and counselling, senior centre and school, rehearsal cellar and dance studio, intercultural centre, workplace and party room.

WUK is a place of learning, trial and error and participation. The WUK creates free space, is a laboratory as well as a practice. Measured in square metres and diversity, WUK is one of the largest socio-cultural centres in Europe. Every year, 200,000 people visit and use WUK.

After more than 160 years of intensive use, a comprehensive renovation of the listed building in Währinger Strasse is urgently needed - a huge challenge for WUK in the coming years.

In a first step, work is being carried out on the renovation of the electrical systems. Own funds, donations, the support of the city, many artists and cooperation partners have made this possible. An overwhelming support that has shown that WUK is important to people! And a great motivation, as WUK is only at the beginning of a huge challenge. WUK will have to continue to count on the support of the City of Vienna and all its friends for the necessary general renovation of the historical building.

Strong beer, strong design

The beer was brewed, but the matching bottle design was still missing. That's why we got help and asked the students of the Graphische" university in Vienna for their support. In the course of a competition we selected one of over 20 unique designs. The Kultur-Reparatur-Seidl was born.

Once again, we would like to thank all the young creative people who put all their heart and soul into the project and who are joining us in saving WUK and thus preserving art and culture in Vienna.
