Budapest Beer Week – Breweries from All Over the World – 2019

 

BPBW – BUDAPEST BEER WEEK
Mission Not Impossible … International Craft Beer Festival in the Heart of the Capital of Hungary!

Take That!!! …  50 Breweries … 200 Beers on the Tap … 2000 Guests … Are you ready for it!?!

Previously stated Márton Sefcsik – Head of Communication Q.: “Our work does not end in 2018, but only really began and by now the visitors arriving to the Budapest Beer Week not only come to Hungary in 2019 because at other similar international beer events the tickets immediately as it is published or announced the sign goes “sold out. Visitors joining the event beside the superb beers, also wish to see the Capital’s scenarios and other Hungarian venues.”

Last year, the breweries  had proved that the domestic craft beer ain’t teenager anymore, it reached by now the age to be a considered as adults and Budapest deserves the attention in the international beer world.

BPBW source: “Like many great things, the idea of the festival was born in a beer bar under the influence of new wave brewing, international festivals, inspiring brewers and of course a decent amount of good beer. The goal was simple and straightforward from the beginning: although during the past couple of years the wind of craft has touched the Hungarian beer scene and great breweries has been risen from the ground, it is clear that we have to leap that next step to connect our culture into the international circles of craft beer. We can also put it this way: we wish to shift from ride to full gallop. One of the biggest realizations we experienced at other festivals was that how the hosting city can form the whole atmosphere into its own image; we all love Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen, Tallinn Craft Beer Weekend, Brewskival, All In Beer Fest, Borefts Beer Festival or Mash – just to name a few – not only for their imposing beer lists and participating brewers but to discover the city and its own beer culture.”

As a short introduction, the idea of BPBW came from three beer enthusiasts who all have roots in Budapest and work in different areas of the beer industry. Peter Pazinczar is an entrepreneur working in the IT sector who also runs an up and coming gipsy brewery called TuffBuzz. Marton Sefcsik works in online marketing and sales while he is also the founder and editor in chief of the local beer blog Fenekig.Com. Tibor Rebak is a professional brewer who previously worked with Höganäs Bryggeri, BrewDog and Signature Brew and now looking forward to his next journey with Poppels. But beer is not the only bond among the team: we’ve all spent years in the Hungarian underground playing in different punk and metal bands. We quickly got the ‘Kraft Association’ – an organization uniting the best Budapest breweries including MONYO, Mad Scientist, Horizont, HopTop and Balkezes just to name a few – to join forces. With their support and background in organizing their very own “Kraft Festival” in the recent years we can sure achieve the ultimate goal: connecting Budapest and the Hungarian craft scene into the international streamline of good beer.

We did our very best working on the structure to make sure it is going to be second to none compared to former beer festivals in the region. We took the idea of tasting sessions with limited taps and small tasting quantities from festivals like MBCC, Brewskival or Tallin Craft Beer Weekend; we are inviting our personal favorite breweries to provide the local and foreign craft beer fanatics an opportunity to have all the rarities they’ve been dreaming about at one place. Needless to say, this is going to be a great opportunity to build bridges between consumers, brewers and breweries.

The core events will obviously be followed by a huge after party including the wildest bands and performers from Hungary’s diverse music scene with craft beers on the taps. This is why we chose to work with

Dürer Kert, one of the best live music venues to host our festival in the heart of City Park.
