Ottakringer is one of Austria's largest breweries, and its leading selling beer is a style called helles, which is a style that is little known outside of Bavaria and Austria. It is similar to Czech pilsner, but with less hops and more malt. Ottakringer is brewed in Vienna, and the brewery is easily accessible via public transport. Tours of the brewery feature the obligatory free samples of the product.
