Get your glass! The 12th Főzdefeszt is coming!
Posted by Budnews · Sep 5, 2016

The reds are already in the pantry! – This is the motto of the 12th Főzdefeszt weekend, so maybe you can guess the theme of the new event.

The Főzdefeszt the first domestic craft beer festival, the biggest and most important event in the domestic beer industry. This year as usual, there will be hundreds of hundreds of Hungarian and foreign new wave beers and dozens of street food vendors offering snacks.

It’s September, leaves are starting to fall down and there is no beer more suitable for that moment then then red beers, be it an Irish red or some burocratic red lager or a sultry red IPA. Happy the man who has his pantry full of reds by the fall. Briefly, that’s the point.

Though Hungary is teeming with festivals big and small, Főzdefeszt continues to preserve its leading role as the most visited and the best value for money festival among all the others. They usually have around 40 000 visitors in 3 days, all curious to sample not only the beers offered at more than 50 stands, but the exclusive and ever changing street-food presented by Budapest’s best vendors and food trucks.

There is no entrance fee at the festival, but you have to buy Főzdefeszt glass for beer tasting. The glass is non-returnable, however you can leave it at the glass-booths on leaving or take it with you. Previous years’ glasses are not valid this year. It’s important, because breweries and pubs will only tap beer into a branded Főzdefeszt-glass! Anyway: the bears are first class, the atmosphere is incomparable, so we’ll be there for sure.
