About The Craft Beer Cruise:
The first of its kind in Budapest, this craft beer tasting cruise offers a carefully compiled selection of Hungary's best artisan beers against a breathtaking backdrop. It’s the perfect introduction to the country's emerging craft beer scene. Whether you’re a full-blown connoisseur or an eager beer loving amateur, you're likely to learn something new.
As the cruise gets underway an attentive hostess will fill each participant's glass with an acclaimed local brew. Each one is accompanied by a descriptive introduction, so you’ll have a clear picture of what you’re sampling. You're welcome to ask the hostess questions about the drinks and Hungary's craft beer scene.
In between tastings you'll be provided with freshly baked pastries to reset the taste buds. You'll be sampling 150ml of each Hungarian beer variety. They've been carefully sorted from light lager to strong, dark porter to create the most indulging tasting experience.
The last glass of beer is optional for all guests. Pick the powerful “Flemish Porter” if you love your brews as hearty as possible or select the lighter, sweet-sour 'Black Currant Beer' for a refreshing fruity experience!
Once the tasting's over you'll be poured a full pint of your favourite sampled beer. Take this upstairs to the open-air deck and enjoy the rest of your trip with a stunning view of Budapest.
