Brewery Park – Third Kraft Beer Festival – Budapest 2017.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

September, 7-10.2017.

 Brewery Park – (Sörfőzde Park)

District, X., 47. Maglódi Road

Here we go to the third Kraft Beer Festival!

(Direct FREE bus service departure from Blaha Lujza Square to the Punishment Park and FREE entry)

If you like special and elegant beers, then hop over to the … where during the week-end may catch up with the delicate craft beers with a twist.

There are kraft beers galore, beer premieres, professional programs, food trucked to foreign guest breweries, souvenir shop and of course the inimitable industrial site.

Some Hungarian breweries have teamed up with their flag to nail it title: “kraft beer”, which will also serve as a trademark in the future. The consumer who buys the kraft beer can be assured that he will get a high quality product for his money.

Everyone has and will have constant beers that the potential audience will be happy to enjoy year-after-year. Nonetheless, kraft brewery is trying to keep up with the production of its existing breweries, and from time-two-time they produce just  for the festival a new or limited edition products. Here at the 3rd Kraft Beer Festival the Kraft brewery is not required to produce 500 different beers.

Just alittle background to the Kraft Beers …   Brewery Park is a joint site of four kraft breweries Monyó, Horizont, Mad Scientist, HopTop and by the end of the Kraft Beer Festival  newcomers  will be greeted to join the “club”. According to the decision of the trademark, these producers are: Golem, Armando_Ochoa, Reketye Brewery, Dimbo Lab, HaraPunk, Reczer Ser, TufBuzz, White Rabbit which may receive greenlight to join the KRAFT Beer Alliance and their beers are welcoming the visitors to stop by and taste them.

More about the Kraft Beers … Many may know by now that the kraft beer will not be special or good to beat the malt with a fist or twist the mash with your bare hands. The beer quality does not depend on the size of the brewery plant. Small size is not a guarantee of quality. However, a kraft roll can not be made in big industry. Kraft beer does not have to come up with the most expensive raw materials, but it is made of quality raw materials, it is constant for taste and composition.  It has a nice and durable foam. Kraft brewery does not work with the most expensive technology available, but brewery is always hygienic and professional.

AND beside the liquid bread, cannot walk by with tasting the yummy food. On the spot delicious unique food is prepare. Worthwhile to give it a try. Just as: the first Hungarian pulled pork food truck serves, namely:“Zabáljcsak” (meaning circa – just get stuffed). These BBQ sandwiches are real meal treats.  Also the ZUZMó! BBQ, meat cocked in steam and in addtion with red beans socked in  Hop’s “Midnight Express” beer cannot be left out. The ZING Burgers are reachable throughout the city with their mobile minibus kitchen at festivals. Can not be disappointed with their fantasy flavors.

„Padmashri Prathibha Prahlad is a renowned and a pre-eminent Indian classical dancer. In a career spanning 40 years, she has been a performer, choreographer, educator, author, arts administrator, and a pioneering curator of performing arts festivals.

Bharatanatyam is one of the most popular and widely practiced classical dance styles of India, with sculptural evidence dating back nearly 3000 years. A highly spiritual and dedicatory dance form, Bharatanatyam‘s roots go back to the Hindu temples of Tamil Nadu, in South India.

The dance moved from temples to theaters over time, but has retained its characteristic devotional component, expression of human emotions, and stylized storytelling. The flexibility of the Bharatanatyam framework lends itself well to both traditional themes as well as modern-day subjects.

Originally performed only by female soloists, Bharatanatyam is now performed by male and female soloists as well as ensembles all over the world. In its present form, Bharatanatyam is approximately 200 years old, and continues to evolve as a “living” performance art.

Bharatanatyam is composed of three main aspects – nritta, or technical dance, with a sophisticated base vocabulary used to build intricate combinations and rhythmic patterns that does not convey any specific meaning; nritya, or expression dance, using facial expressions, highly stylized gestures, postures and body language to convey any mood; and natya, or dramatic storytelling.

All of these aspects are codified in the Natya Shastra, the ancient Indian treatise on dance and theater arts, and are used in harmony to uplift the audience and the dancer to a higher level of contentment and spiritual consciousness.”
