5 FREE events you should check out in Vienna this week

Bier Club // Scandinavian & Baltic Beers

Free beer tasting!

Bier Club // Scandinavian & Baltic Beers

When: MON, January 29, 7–8pm
Where: Brickmaker’s Pub & Kitchen
Entry: free!

The Brickmaker’s beer tasting sessions are back in business and they’ll be kicking things off this Monday with a selection of Scandinavian and Baltic beers – sounds like a match made in heaven… when it comes to beer and human love… if you know what we mean… cause we don’t. Anyway, you don’t have to pay a cent for the tasting, however, we’re sure you’ll be tempted to sit down and have a pint of some craft beer brew. Beginners and experienced craft beer connoisseurs are all welcome.

Recommended if you like: beer, tasting beer like it’s wine, the smell of hops, trying to brew your own beer in the cellar of your apartment building while you hope the landlord never finds out, hanging out in bars

World Music Session hosted by Habib Samandi

A night full of music from far away places

World Music Session hosted by Habib Samandi

When: WED, January 31, 8pm-11pm
Where: Tunnel
Entry: free!

Those cute little ears of yours will be able to go for a trip this Wednesday night if they make their way to the Tunnel. There, the talented man on percussions, Habib Samandi, will be getting a whole bunch of musicians together to create some…uh…music. One of the musical talents will be a Syrian trio, while after the main act, the stage will be opened up for anybody who is keen to take part in this unique and global open mic jam. If you’re more a listener than a musician, this is a great option for a Wednesday night drink with friends.

Recommended if you like:  traveling, music with lots of percussions in it, when magnificent sounds come out of random musicians getting on stage together, world music, being a musician
