Our nephew insisted we visit his local "pub" during our stay. Very convenient 1/2 mile walk from subway (Ober St. Viet - green line). He promised the best hefeweisen and a dark creamy stout - both were suberb! The hungarian goulash boasted rich intense flavor, melt in the mouth beef and undoubtedly the best dumplngs I've ever had.

My family and I traveled to Vienna for a relaxing vacation away from the hustle and bustle of life. Soon after our arrival I realized we were in for a surprise.

After spending four months in Austria, nothing eclipses this microbrew experience. Good food, good service, and the best beer in Vienna, hands down! Your Austrian experience is not complete until you've visited Medl-Brau and sampled their delicious nectar--twice.
