LIQUID BREAD – FŐZDEFESZT
September, 11 – 13. 2015.
Venue: District; XIV., Felvonulási Square – Budapest … the location is within reach to the ARC poster-exhibition.
Already it has been five years since the first Főzdefeszt, the hegemony of the industrial beer had introduced itself among local and many foreigner tourists and foreigners living in Budapest – Hungary. Beer was always the liquid bread for many Hungarians. As years went by new, fine, smooth beers were presented by breweries. In a wink, out from nowhere like mushrooms the breweries became more popular. The festival is arranged every year whereas we thousands of beer lover visitors come along to be up-to-date with the local beers.
This year, the visitors to the Főzdefeszt will witness a new phenomenon in Hungarian craft-beer culture. The clerical beer is on the rise! Will be ont he taps three new Hungarian clerical craft-beer identities … The Zirc Monastic Brewery the first real-life brewery opened in the basement of one of Hungary’s oldest and greatest Cistercian Monastery at Zirc. Also the St.Mauriciusz Monastery, just a few kilometers away from Zirc, and at the Bors Brewery. Introducing the Bishop of Székesfehérvár recreating a fin-de-siecle porter, Szt. István Porter at Kőbánya. It is the old home of Hungarian brewing, at one of the youngest breweries called Monyó.
There will be so many to have a sample on, just like to witness the uncanny performance of Freak Fusion Cabaret … a renown new-circus group … they decided to brew a smoky lager on their own, under the name Triple Rittberger.
In-between tasting the superb Hungarian beers, for the first time, the Főzdefeszt welcomes a couple of international breweries. Mentioning a few … Van de Streek – Netherlands, BrewAge – Austria and Lucky Bastrad – Czech Republic.
