'Downtown Beer Festival' In Budapest, 5 – 10 June
The Downtown Beer Festival is held for the third time in Budapest between 5th and 10th June at Szabadság Square.

For the first time this year the organizers of the festival are preparing the festival’s own beer with the help of consumers. The point of the initiative, unique in Hungary, is that by answering a questionnaire anyone can have influence on the beer specialty’s, among other things, type, alcohol content and color.

The beer-lover audience determines the parameters of the festival’s beer. Besides alcohol content or color, those who have participated in the questionnaire can also choose whether they want to drink a beer in the first few days of summer that has more hop or less, or whether it is lager or ale type.

The responses to the questionnaire is received by the organizers until 13th May, and then, based on their assessment, the brewing of the beer of the 2019 Downtown Beer Festival will begin immediately at First Craft Beer so that the visitors can taste the new beer as fresh as possible at the opening of the festival on 5th June.

Admission is free but buying a festival glass is obligatory for tasting. 
Festival glass: HUF 1,999 (includes 4 dl beer)
Premium festival glass: HUF 2,500 (includes 4 dl beer)

Opening hours: 
Wednesday & Thursday & Monday: 11:30 - 00:00
Friday & Saturday &  Sunday: 11:30 - 02:00

1054 Budapest, Szabadság Square
