The reds are already in the pantry!
Let’s celebrate Hungarian Craft-beer for the 12th time this September at Főzdefeszt!
When the colonel said that in the famous old Hungarian movie „Tizedes meg a többiek”, he meant the Russians naturallly, who are already in the pantry. It sounds funny, but we are talking serious now: beer! A mature beer culture is recognized by the ability of its drinkers to switch preferred styles according to the changing seasons. They drink something bold in the spring, sample airy light lagers and weisses in the summer, but starts to crave for something with more body when the evenings turn cool. There is no beer more suitable or that moment then then red beers, be it an irish red or some burocratic red lager or a sultry red IPA. Happy the man who has his pantry full of reds by the fall.
Like always, we are looking for new ways to make our festival perfect, and after trying the cash-only payment version, now we switch back to the more comfortable festivalcard.
We also use a new festival-glass. Buying this glass, you have paid your entrance-fee to the festival, after you have enjoyed the party, you take your glass home as a souvenir.
Though Hungary is teeming with festivals big and small, Főzdefeszt continues to preserve its leading role as the most visited and the best value for money festival among all the others. We usually have 40 000 visitors around in 3 days all curious to sample not only the beers offered at more than 50 stands, but the exclusive and ever changing street-food presented by Budapest’s best vendors and foodtrucks.
See you at the festival!
Főzdefeszt is a place for tasting, talking and responsible drinking.
There is no entrance fee, but you have to buy Főzdefeszt glass for beer tasting.
You can drink from a new Főzdefeszt glass on the festival!
The glass is non-returnable, however you can leave it at the glass-booths on leaving.
Previous years’ glasses are not valid this year.
Our breweries and pubs will only tap beer into a branded Főzdefeszt-glass!
You can buy one of these at any beer-stall and Főzdefeszt Shops, and you can clean glasses at the glass-points, called „Poháröblítés”.
