Craft Beer Walk
While the Hungarian craft beer revolution is still in its infancy, it is building momentum and there are homegrown brews worth seeking out. Discover some of the best Hungarian craft beers—at some of the coolest beer bars—on this walk. You can get a pretty great glass of wine at any decent Budapest restaurant. Though beer has also been brewed here for hundreds of years, beer drinkers are not so lucky. Nearly all bars serve the same few Hungarian beers, which are mass-produced at breweries owned by the big multinational breweries. Luckily, there is a Hungarian craft beer revolution quietly brewing, and it has been steadily gaining momentum over the past several years. The result is a range of unique, handcrafted Hungarian beer for the beer-loving traveler to seek out. This tour, which is led by our beer-specialized guide, will include visits to three bars where you can taste the brews which are launching Hungary’s exciting beer revolution. The first bar will be a truly local place (which the craft beer revolution has not yet touched), where you will discuss the broader history and culture of Hungarian beer (and taste a mainstream beer, for comparison’s sake). At the next two places your guide will guide you through a tasting of around eight craft beers, in a range of styles and flavors. At one bar you will have some light food to accompany the beer. Join us to discover these exciting beers while the revolution is still fresh.
