District 9 held their indoor beer festival over the weekend, mapping out a community that involved 18 bars spanning a distance of 1999 meters serving 99 different craft beers on tap. By visiting each participating venue for a beer and collecting their stamp, you could do the ultimate Budapest craft beer tour. Challenge accepted!
And to help give a visual documentation of our D9 beer tour, we flew in London-based photographer and Budapest craft beer enthusiast Claudio Saroldi to tag along.
This is the secret hub of Hungarian craft beer featuring the largest selection of local beer on tap. The final stop on our standard Budapest craft beer tour, Élesztő was celebrating it’s 3rd birthday this weekend by serving their first cask ale.
Success! We were able to collect stamps from all 18 venues on the map. By the end of the festival, we had discovered a few new places that we did not know about before as well as spend some time with the D9 community during an exciting weekend. Great work for everyone involved.
