Highlights of This Tour
A craft beer expert, who also brews his own beer, will tell you everything you need to know about the types of beers and the tasting methods. You’ll also learn about the recent Hungarian craft beer revolution that has transformed the Budapest craft beer scene as well as about the main breweries in the city.
Since it’s a small-group tour, you’ll have the chance to ask plenty of questions and interact with other beer lovers in your group. This tour is ideal for those who enjoy some beers occasionally, but who want to learn more about beers in general and about the Budapest scene in particular. However, it’s also a great opportunity for beer experts, beer bloggers and home brewers to get an overview of the growing Budapest craft beer scene.
Why I Recommend This Tour
With hundreds of different craft beers available in over 150 bars and restaurants in Budapest, it is 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 craft beer tour is a great way to overcome these challenges so that you can enjoy the city’s vibrant beer scene.

“I booked this tour for my partner who loves his beer. Despite not being a big beer drinker myself, I thoroughly enjoyed the tour, and I would highly recommend booking it to anyone coming to Budapest. We will definitely be rebooking when we next come back!”

Perfect intro to craft beers in Budapest!

A great way to learn about craft beers
“Luckily we went on this tour with “Tommy” (Tamas) who introduced us to both the styles and history of craft beers in Hungary. We were glad to see this wasn’t just a typical pub crawl. All the spots we visited were in the same district, which helped orient us to the lively scene (but fortunately we avoided the stag parties).”

Must do tour for craft beer lovers
“My partner and I booked the tour directly with Budapest Local, who were friendly and answered all our questions, before visiting Budapest in June. Our tour was a great night out, we were taken to a number of craft beer places loved by locals. As tourists we probably wouldn’t have found the places ourselves.”
