Hungarian craft beers
New Hungarian craft beers hit the German market this March!
Hungarian beer scene has gone through its own evolution since Budapest’s first craft-beer festival – Főzdefeszt – in 2011. Innovative and American-style extremities have been present since, but popular high-quality beers have just appeared a while ago. The booming craft-beer market of Budapest gave an example to Berlin in 2013 when the Hungarian-organized Braufest kickstarted Berlin beer-boom.
Mad Scientist is one of the youngest breweries in Budapest. They are already making a name for themselves by brewing exceptionally tasty and clean beers with huge fruity flavours, quite often including the fruit itself into special IPAs. They have introduced New England style IPA-s, like Smooth Hoperator, which is easily the best beer in Hungary right now – and on its way to claiming its right place on the European beer-scene.
Rothbeer is famous of its balanced and beautiful IPAs and easily drinkable session beers. Founded by one the most established home brewers of the decade – Zoltán Róth.
Hara Punk was among the first gypsy-breweries of Budapest. Despite their young age, the two brewers have taught a whole generation to home brew at Brew Studio – their home brew school – among their best pupils were the guys who formed Mad Scientist brewery. Now they have brewed their meisterstück Double IPA – the cool and beautiful Son of a Bitch!
