The Downtown Beer Festival is still going on

If you don’t have any plans for the weekend jet, you still have got the chance to visit the The Downtown Beer Festival. It is just around the corner and there will be over 250 specialty beers waiting for you! The event will be held between June 5th and 10th and will take place at one of the most fabulous places of Budapest in Szabadság Square located close to the Parliament in District V.

Many craft-beer breweries will offer their specialty beers such as the Rizmajer Brewery with its Cingulus Porter, Millet, and Sour Cherry Cognac Beer and the Brandecker Beer House with its refreshing Elder flower and Ginger Beers.

More well-known Hungarian beer houses will offer their programs too for example the Heineken and the Soproni Breweries will introduce their process of beer making and the Dreher Beer Factory’s tasting expert will talk about professional beer tasting and tapping.

The event will start from 11.30 in the morning and will last until 2 am. This is the third time that the festival brings together well-known beer houses, international producers and small-scale breweries from all over Hungary.

It is a great opportunity for beer lovers and for those who are interested in tasting and knowing the beer culture of Hungary. The festival is the perfect time for hanging out with your friends, grabbing a glass of cold beer while enjoying some concerts and great performances of famous Hungarian musical bands. Also, you can taste some delicious and popular dishes from the food trucks of Budapest such as gourmet burgers from Burger Market and grilled meats and sausages from Kővári grill.

There is a free entry but to taste beer you have to purchase a unique festival glass and you have two options: the Festival Glass for 1.999HUF and the Premium Festival Glass for 2.500HUF; the price includes 4dl of beer and whichever glass you buy you can keep it.

The purpose of the festival is to popularise the rich craft beer culture of Hungary and bring extraordinary breweries, premium beers and the best of the craft beer scenery together. Last year The Downtown Beer Festival welcomed over 100.000 visitors who consumed more than 150.000 mugs of beer. If you like beer see you among the visitors this year.
