Hungary is not especially well known for their beer, but a nation that is known for its beer is Belgium. And, that is not only celebrated in Belgium, but also in Hungary, especially during the annual beer festival.
At the festival about 30 Belgian breweries will be present, making it possible for visitors to taste about 50 drought beers and a total of 140 different brands. The festival is arranged in the beautiful environment of the Bálna, just by the Danube, not far from the Grand Market Hall.
At the festival you can for example taste what was selected to be the best dark beer in the world in 2012, the Carolus Classic. In addition it will be possible to taste Delirium, Barbar, Kasteel Rouge, Duvel, Corsendonk and lots of other beer types from Belgium.
