Vienna’s Craft Beer Exploration – A Delightful Evening Experience

Diving into Vienna’s Craft Beer Scene

Sampling local flavors is what I live for, be it diving into a culinary journey, swirling wine, or exploring the bubbly realms of a brewery. That’s why the idea of delving into Vienna’s craft beer culture sounded like my kind of evening. Let me share the scoop with you!

The Allure of Craft Beer in Vienna

Over the past few years, my curiosity about craft beer has blossomed. Wherever I travel, I’m on the lookout for a brewery or beer tasting spot. Any reason to savor a pint of quality beer is a valid one, right?

The Experience with Prime Tours

I’ve mentioned Prime Tours in my previous escapades. Remember the eerie Spooky Vienna Tour and the insightful Free Walking Tour? Well, their service, from communication to the actual experiences, has always impressed me.

Delving into Craft Beer Tasting in Vienna

The Venue The adventure unfolded at the Chicago Craft Beer Bar coupled with Deep Pot Pizza located at Passauer Platz, nestled across from a church. If you’re early, take a moment to step into the church — it’s a narrow yet magnificent Gothic structure with a minimalist yet grand interior, complete with an imposing altar and delicate stained glass.

Now, refocusing on the main event — the bar awaits with its array of 12 beers on tap, offering a generous palette for our tasting venture.

Introducing Our Guide, Anna At the bar, we were greeted by Anna, our guide. Anna had been a devout wine enthusiast until she ventured into the world of craft beer — a sentiment I deeply relate to since I too had an aversion to beer until the hop-forward craft varieties won me over.

The Craft Beer Sampling Begins

Joining Anna and me were four other enthusiasts, all from Germany. This wasn’t new to me; men often seem to be the ones drawn to these brewery tours, as I observed on a similar tour in Prague.

We kicked off with a round of appetizing snacks — think cheese-stuffed sausages, a selection of cheeses, pistachios, and sliced pears — laying the perfect foundation for the beer tasting ahead.

Anna kicked off the session with a few inquisitive prompts to gauge our beer leanings. Next up, she presented us with our inaugural brew. To keep track of our thoughts, we were equipped with a Prime Tours Craft Beer Tasting sheet designed specifically for noting our personal reviews of each beer.

Our flight consisted of four diverse beers, starting with the most delicate in flavor and culminating with a robust stout boasting a potent 9% ABV.

Embarking on a Craft Beer Adventure in Vienna Savoring a Hop-Filled IPA Anna navigated us through a taste odyssey stretching from Hawaiian shores to the mists of Scotland. Initially, she guided us through examining the beer’s color and clarity. Afterward, we took in the aroma, jotting down our first impressions, before indulging in the long-anticipated first taste. The Hawaiian beer burst with sunny, tropical flavors, reminiscent of a leisurely beach day.

The following beer held a special place in my heart – it was an IPA I’ve always enjoyed. As we sipped, Anna unfolded the storied past of India Pale Ales, simultaneously enlightening us on the drinking culture of the Viennese.

Our tasting concluded with a departure from the lighter beers, introducing us to a stout that was rich and full-bodied.

Reflecting on the Craft Beer Experience in Vienna Concluding with a Bold Stout I was quite taken with the selection of beers and the narratives that accompanied them. The only addition I would have relished was the inclusion of an Austrian brew in our tasting roster.

Nonetheless, the evening was thoroughly enjoyable – a perfect way to immerse oneself in the vibrant nightlife of Vienna.
