Guardian Lists Budapest’s Ten Top Craft Beer Bars – The Capital’s Latest Tourist Favourite


Craft beer bars springing up around Budapest could follow in the foosteps of “ruin bars” to become the capital’s next hit among tourists, an article listing the ten best places to sample quality craft ales across the capital claims.

The British newspaper The Guardian has published its selection of the Hungarian capital’s top craft beer bars on the occassion of Főzdefeszt, a three-day beer and street food capital that took place in Budapest between 5 and 7 June, in its Travel section. The article reports that “the city is undergoing a craft beer revolution; not just bars devoted to ales but microbreweries opening across the country and a young generation of “Gypsy brewers” and highlights that prices remain very reasonable compared to the West.

The list includes well-known and popular venues in central Budapest – such as Léhűtő or Élesztő Craft Beer Garden – but also others further afield, such as the Legenda Sörfőzde in District XVI or the Rizmajer Beerhouse in District XXI.
