Meet your beer experts at 5:30pm at The Tasting Table, a tasting room in central Budapest housed in a vaulted wine cellar built in the 1860s. Learn, experience, and taste the facets of the Hungarian craft beer revolution with a 1.5-hour annotated beer tasting. From micro-breweries small and large across the country,Â craft beer festivals, bars (and even trucks) dedicated to craft beer, and too many craft beers to count, the craft beer scene in Budapest provides a wealth of options. Thereâs everything from pale ale, stout, and wheat beer to a variety of fruit beers and local specialties including a beer that uses Tokaji aszÃº as an ingredient. Hungaryâs brewers are a creative bunch, and that innovation not only includes the beer inside the bottle, but also the artistic labels and the specialized bars which are becoming mainstays of the Budapest nightlife scene.
This tasting features top-notch Hungarian craft beer paired with a selection of the countryâs best artisan cheese and charcuterie. Itâs the perfect way to take a short break from a day of sightseeing. Just as wine is always better with food, so is beer. As your beer expert leads you through the tasting, hear stories from the front lines of Budapestâs craft beer revolution and enjoy a selection of the best local cheese and charcuterie (as well as some other surprises). Cheese and charcuterie are sourced directly from the countryâs finest artisan cheese makers. Sample mangalica pork sausages, free-range water buffalo salami, smoked duck breast, and grey beef sausage. Learn about the early revival of the cheese making industry that pairs so well with the craft beer flavors. The tasting ends at approximately 7pm at the tasting room.
