Corvin Beer & Blues Festival, Budapest, 27 - 30 September
The 15th Beer and Blues Festival is going to take place at a new venue, the Corvin Promenade, the renewed city center of Pest. The festival integrates music, gastronomy and movies. Music is fun but especially blues music means more: it conveys feelings of our accelerated word throughout generations. Well-known stars and young talents will step on stage forming one of the most exciting mixture of music and gastronomy in this fall.

Beer and blues
Drinking beer is just like listening to blues: you’d better sit down to enjoy it. Although it makes you feel cool, it also makes you dizzy.
You can listen to it alone, but it is even better if you have company.

Movies and blues
Jirzi Menzel’s movie, Cutting it short represents the old traditions and the births of the new ones. Brewing is a very old tradition which is still alive and cherishes today. No matter what happens, people drink beer and enjoy life.
