The company

The Ottakringer Brewery is the last remaining large Viennese brewery, and also one of the last large, independent breweries in Austria. This independence is extremely important to us as a family-run company. Our approximately 150 employees do everything in their power to keep it that way. The most important keys to our success are high-quality products, a wide variety of beers and our hunger for life, which has become our trademark.

Brewing into the 21st century

We have been using the recipe for success for 180 years: It begins with the purest spring water from our in-house well refined by the brewmaster, continues with the finest hops and barley and turned into an exquisite final product of highest quality. Every single step to reach these high-quality products is carried out with heart, sould and dedication by our employees. This ranges from selecting raw material to the ingenious brewing process itself.

Today, the Ottakringer Brewery presents itself as a friendly, modern and cosmopolitan brewery. In the last few years, a great deal of investments have been made in order to transform the brewery site into one of the top event locations in the city.
