Why We Recommend This Tasting
Budapest has a very exciting and growing craft beer scene with more than 300 different craft beers available in over 130 bars and restaurants in Budapest, so it’s not easy to explore the city’s craft beer scene on your own. After all, you can only taste so many beers in one night (or even on one trip).
In addition, the main language of the Hungarian beer scene is still Hungarian, so it can be a challenge to figure out the information about the beers on your own. Joining this guided tasting is a great way to overcome these challenges so that you can explore all the great craft beers that Budapest has to offer.
