Beer Festival Budapest (Budavari Sorfesztival) will take place from 25th to 28th August, 2011 in Buda Castle up on the Castle Hill (on top of the hilly Buda side of Budapest).
Beer lovers come and enjoy the golden, brown, pale amber, stout beer rainbow colours and the fizzy bubbles. We hope to see more of the newly born beer fest in Budapest – after all there are great Hungarian beers, so a beer festival was brewing for decades (and indeed there was a smaller scale beer brewery fest in May 2011).
In addition to the nice refreshing drinks, there will be concerts and other gastronomical pleasures, beer snacks, hot meals, etc.
You may be able to give your comment on which Hungarian beer is the best. Let us know.
