BPBW 2018 | Beer Week in Budapest - Tasting Sessions Day 1
Budapest Beer Week is a whole week dedicated to craft beer in the heart of Budapest from the 20th to 27th of May, 2018 (Sunday to Sunday). The main events will take place on the 25th and 26th of May: two tasting sessions followed by after parties at Dürer Kert, our hosting venue. However as the name suggests, the core event will be followed by tap takeovers, meet the brewer events and live music shows involving the hottest craft beer places in Budapest during the whole week.
Headliner event: 25th and 26th May 2018 Tasting Sessions
We did our very best working on the structure to make sure it is going to be second to none compared to former beer festivals in the region. We took the idea of tasting sessions from festivals like MBCC, Brewskival or Tallin Craft Beer Weekend: unlimited beer tasting for a fixed price with limited taps and small tasting quantities. We are inviting our personal favorite breweries to provide the local and foreign craft beer fanatics an opportunity to have all the rarities they’ve been dreaming about at one place. Needless to say, this is going to be a great time to build bridges between consumers, brewers and breweries.
The tasting sessions will obviously be followed by a huge afterparty including the wildest bands and performers from Hungary’s diverse music scene with craft beers on the taps. This is why we chose to work with Dürer Kert, one of the best live music venues to host our festival in the heart of City Park. And this is just our headliner event.
