Austrian beer is part of the Viennese cuisine
At Wiener Wirtschaft most hearty and savoury meals, like goulash, are best enjoyed with a lovely pint of beer. All beers are provided by the Ottakringer brewery – a Viennese family business just like the Schick Hotels, that is known for its quality. All beers are available as “Pfiff” (0.2l), “Seidel” (0.3l) and “Halbe” (0.5l).
In this neck of the woods the art of brewery enjoyed its first heyday in the Middle Ages, a time when monks were the people who proved to be truly the best master brewers. It was only in the 11th century, when bourgeoisie took over businesses from the aristocrats, that the first non-clerical breweries emerged.
Beer became the everyday beverage of the farmers and workers as well as of rich merchants. The art of brewery was especially flourishing in Bohemia, where beer has been the favourite beverage ever since. From there beer started its triumph and soon became popular in Bavaria and Austria. An act from 1212 states that from then on it was legally allowed to import beer to Vienna.
Pub culture since 1384
Already in the 14th century public houses (“Wirtshaus”) could be found in Austria and in 1384 a Viennese brewery was first mentioned in a document.
