Craft-Beer Festival &  Street Food Show, 7 - 9 June
This weekend the Hungarian craft-beer revolution will meet it's street food counterpart at a very special marriage of festivals. 'Főzdefeszt' was established in 2011 to reposition micro-brewed beers and grow a new beer-culture. It was an instant success and by now it has outgrown its original location, and had to move to a bigger one – a 6500 square-meter place on the bank of the Danube in front of the historical building of Technical University, in the shadow of Gellért Hill, with a beautiful Danube view. Read on for more about Hungary's Street Food Show, and what to expect this weekend at this free-entrance mega event.

Budapest's Street Food Show is a bit younger but equally succcessfull, showcasing the best up and coming street food venues of Budapest in one location, which was Hold Street Market until now, but just as Főzdefeszt, Street Food Show has also grown beyond the confines of its original location, so the two cool festivals just decided to move to a new location together, so beer-lovers can finally fill their stomach with quality food next to outstanding beers, while street-food lovers can finally eat actually on the street under the sky.

Főzdefeszt is bigger then ever, presenting 38 Hungarian breweries – many of them gypsy-breweries and young guerilla-brewers – and more the 100 types of beers, next to an impressive array of the best of imported beers from Belgium, Austria, Scotland, England, Czech Republic. You will have the chance to taste some new IPA-s, saisons, wheatbeers, spicy-hot gingerbeers and the strongest ever beer of Hungary, the 15,2% alcohol Tsunami, a coffee-pinched, bourbon barrel chipped imperial stout. Hopfanatic, Élesztő, Fóti, Legenda, zip’s and many more breweries wait for you to taste their beers.

Street Food Show is bringing a best-of compilation of its history along with some newcomers and 9 food-trucks that seem to be the latest craze in festival-gastronomy. You can taste the iconic Wang and a lot of pasta and hamburger before turning to the world of fish, presented by Vörös Homár, the maker of Budapest’s finest fish and chips. Funky Pho, Divin Porcello, Nu Bisztró and Pasta Station and many more will be there for you to taste.

The entrance is free as always!
