We get our fair share of criticism for the amount of time we spend covering Scotland’s global brewer BrewDog. And we’ll stop when they stop doing cool things like opening a new BrewDog bar in one of Eastern Europe’s most intriguing cities.
Here’s the deal…
On Friday 16th November, BrewDog will be opening a brand new bar in Hungary’s capital city and financial center…and one of our favorite places in Europe.
Considered to be one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, Budapest has been ranked as “the world’s second best city” by Condé Nast Traveler. It’s “Europe’s 7th most idyllic place to live” according to Forbes, and even more fun, it’s one of the world’s most affordable cities for beer,
Budapest is a city of contrasts where old meets new, a bustling international hub along the beautiful Danube River that attracts 4.4 million international tourists annually, and a World Class city where serious beer just makes sense.
Just a short walk from the iconic Chain Bridge across the Danube is the eclectic Erzsébetváros (District VII) neighborhood, and that’s where you’ll find a cool pedestrianized street named Anker köz and BrewDog’s new Eastern European home.
Located across the road from Deák Ferenc tér Metro station at the southwestern tip of Király Utca, BrewDog Budapest is housed in an old Hungarian banking hall that’s got maximum vibe…And the brewery is promising a rich selection of beer to match.
When you’re not drinking at BrewDog’s new outpost there’s all kinds of things to explore in Budapest. The central area of the city along the Danube River is a great place to start. The riverside neighborhood, complete with old world charm and outdoor cafes has been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for good reason.
Be sure to check out the Hungarian Parliament, Buda Castle, Fisherman’s Bastion, the Széchenyi Chain Bridge and the Great Market Hall.
Budapest also has around 80 geothermal springs, the largest thermal water cave system, the second largest synagogue, and third largest Parliament building in the world!
