Boutique beer festival

Gellért Söröző & Brasserie
November 8 2018 from 6 p.m. SOLD OUT!

Nowhere else in the world is there a Martin Day Wine Festival where beer is also assigned a significant role. Gellért is also exceptional in this regard, as on Day 0when beer makers – representing the best Hungarian breweries – introduce their more than 30 draft beers with unlimited beer tasting.

Beer snacks will be presented by Róbert Vona, creative chef of the recently renewed Gellért Brasserie.

When it was built in 1918, besides the elegant restaurants the plans called for a plainer restaurant serving day-trippers in summer and local residents in winter. The restaurant located on the corner facing Gellért Hill had its own street entrance, it was cheaper than the elegant rooms and salons on the first floor and the dishes on the menu were simpler. The food was cooked by the hotel’s chefs from the same ingredients and in the same quality as the others. Károly Gundel developed the bistro into an attractive bourgeois restaurant, also opening a terrace in front of the building.
