If you were amongst the 40,000 or so people who attended this year’s Főzdefeszt you most probably were not disappointed. In its 8th year, this was the ultimate street party with virtually everything you could wish for on hand in downtown Budapest.
This is the festival that introduced craft beer to Hungarians three years ago and has grown to be the biggest gastronomical festival on the Budapest calendar.
Craft beer is fast becoming a fashionable treat with many great craft beer pubs opening, like “Élesztő”, “Felni Sorbisztro” or the “21-tap” multi-tap bar that was voted to be one of the top-ten European beer pubs by the readers of Guardian.
To go with the wonderful array of craft beers, there were local and international, equally delicious foods. And with the sun beaming down on this fabulous street, it just tasted that little bit better.
