why you shouldn’t miss this
Budapest is filled with stunning bridges, magnificently gothic and Renaissance architecture, and relatively modern spectacles like the Hungarian Parliament Building. More than 100,000 people were part of the construction of the Parliament Building between 1896 and 1904. Since the building itself was lavishly built with about 40 million bricks, many precious stones, and 88 pounds of gold, the government allowed it to become a tourist attraction after World War 2. The Danube river divides the city into its two constituent halves: Buda and Pest. On the Buda side, you will see the famous Buda Castle and the Fisherman’s Bastion. Pest, on the other hand, is filled with beautiful urban buildings and historical landmarks. This cruise truly captures the spirit of Hungary’s capital.
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.
The Beer Culture of Budapest
After you board your luxurious cruise boat near the Danube Palace, your beer tasting will begin. There are few experiences that can rival the pleasure of cruising on Hungary’s greatest river, sampling fine drinks from first-rate breweries, and soaking up the picturesque sights of Budapest. Whether you’re a beer-loving craft expert, or just wish to take your first steps in uncharted territory, this cruise is sure to be 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.
Upon the start of your cruise, a host 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 flavors. You will be tasting 150ml from each of the 5 Hungarian beer specialties, 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 refreshingly 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.
