Craft Beer Cruise
Sun 25 December 2016, 19:00 – 21:00 CET
The first craft beer tasting cruise of Budapest offers a carefully compiled selection from the best artisan beers of the country in a breathtaking setting. It’s the perfect introduction to the emerging Hungarian craft beer scene.
Whether you’re a beer loving craft expert, or just wish to take your first steps in a rather uncharted territory, we invite you on a unique adventure for your palate. From the 5 famous local brews offered everyone will be able to find the one closest to their heart.
The program will take place on a marvellous evening cruise at 7pm under all 6 main bridges of the Danube. Witness the iconic sights of Budapest, like the majestic House of Parliament, the Buda Castle, the Matthias Church and the spectacular Palace of Arts, while sampling the best local brews available and listening to live music from 4 artists of the famous Rajkó Folk Orchestra.
Upon the start of your cruise an attentive hostess will begin to serve you glasses of the acclaimed local brews accompanied by descriptive introductions to each one, so you’ll have a clear picture of what you’re sampling. You will also be able to ask questions about these brews and the Hungarian craft beer scene from your hostess. Amid the different beer types offered for tasting, you will be provided with local pastries to highlight each of the diverse flavours. You will be tasting 150ml from each of the 5 Hungarian beer specialities, carefully sorted from the light lager to the strong, dark porter to create the most indulging tasting experience.
The last glass of beer will be optional for all guests. Pick from the powerful “Flemish Porter” if you love your brews as heavy as possible or select the lighter, sweet-sour “Black Currant Beer” for a refreshing fruity experience!
After the tasting you will be able to pick one from the sampled beers to receive a full pint for free!
Take your beer upstairs to the open-air top deck of the boat and enjoy the rest of your trip in the most fabulous way possible!
