8th Belgian Beer Festival

During May 19-21, Bálna Budapest once again hosts a hop-scented gathering that brings 45 Belgian breweries together to present more than 250 types of intoxicating suds. Among the fine selection, 65 different beers will be available on tap in Bálna's grand hall and across its terrace, found adjacent to the city's recently renovated Nehru Shore. A color palette depicting various flavors guides guests into the world of beers at the festival, but those who are eager to learn about the available suds can also check the vast selection on the event's official website (in Hungarian). We highly recommend to try the raspberry-flavored Framboise Boon, the smoked-tea-scented Prearis Smokey Li, and the honey-enhanced Lefebvre Barbár. Upon entering the event's grounds, guests get tokens with their entry tickets that they can exchange for glasses of palatable potables, but these can also be bought later on within the festival's premises (650 HUF/token).
