Went here on a quest to visit a all the brewpubs in vienna. Located in an interesting location (in a warehouse), a short walk from spitlau. Went here on a tuesday night, a day in which it was closed. the owner was entertaining a few freinds and allowed us to come for beer. Can see all the brewing equipment in the back of the warehouse. Brewer/owner did not have his own beer at the time (ran out, said it would take a few weeks till the next batch), but offered a domestic brand. He stayed late with me and my friends talking about his restaurant/brewery and how he got started. it was quite interesting and hope him all the like. cannot give an acurate review due to no food/house beer, but wish all the luck.

Always good to see the birth of another craft brewery. Opened in July 2007, Eipeltauer is located in a rather industrial section of North Vienna, nestled between a train station and the Danube canal. Owner and brewmaster Chris Eipeltauer has put a lot of love and sweat into setting this place up in a former warehouse - he is rightfully proud. The restaurant/bar area is not large, holding perhaps enough tables for 50 or 60, along with a bar of 6-8 stools. The brewkettles are visible through glass at the back of the room. The decor is still rather Spartan, but seems to get better each time I go. Food is only served for lunch and only in one or two set menus, but the price is outstanding and the quality has been good so far. Music is not a factor during the day, but there is a place for a live band to set up, and Chris does quite a few evening parties.

The beers are solid, but Eipeltauer still has capacity problems. The good kind, though - he runs out of his best stuff far too quickly. The flagship Märzen, called 1190 after the Vienna zip code for the brewery, is a fine rendition. I've also tried his honey beer (OK) and his Doppelbock (excellent). The website offers about a dozen varieties, but I think he is still shaking out the kinks in the system, so hasn't yet gotten around to offering many of them. Based on the products so far, they should be quite good indeed.

This place is definitely off the beaten path, but worth the trip to support a brewer with an awful lot of potential.
