Mautner Markhof-Strasse 11, A-2320, Schwechat, Austria

A large brewery that claims to have brewed the first lager beer in 1840, though, to be precise, it was the Vienna lager that was invented here by Anton Dreher. Production of that beer was discontinued in the early 20th century. Nowadays the brewery is part of Heineken and produces golden lagers.
