I searched for, but failed to find a Budapest brew pub this-evening (Budapest addresses can be confusing) but realised I was very near here, so came back for a second early evening session. Noticeably busier tonight.
Balkezes - Peeping Tom 5.50ExcellentGolden and almost clear. A well-balanced APA. Very nice.
Kapucinus Sörfőzde - Illuminator7.20ExcellentA strong, hazy gold ‘Hop Lager’. Served chilled. I really liked this one.
Horizont - Horizont APA 4.50GoodClear gold. A nice, clean APA with fruity hop flavours (would probably rate excellent on another day, but everything here is so good).
Synthesis - One Night Seduction 7.20Not TriedA Stout. Full-bodied and creamy, with plenty of roast barley character.

Hop Top - Sunset5.70ExcellentCloudy amber in colour. A very good IPA.
Hopfanatic - Bitterfly7.00GoodCloudy amber in colour. A strong, smooth IPA with a bit of caramel.

Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in Budapest, Hungary, 1094.

The pioneering bar in Budapest’s vibrant craft beer scene. Set up in a former glassworks in a fashionable area just off the city centre, this bar is reminiscent of Budapest’s famous ‘ruin bars’. The name of the bar translates as ‘Yeast’. The bar is located on a little street called Tűzoltó utca and is handily close to Corvin-negyed Metro Station. There are two main rooms, each with its own bar counter, and a large courtyard. Other rooms blur into neighbouring businesses, with a basement café and a street food-type vendor. None of the furniture or fittings are exactly new and some are downright decrepit. Up to 25 draught beers are usually available.

We have visited this pub twice, seen 8 different beers and tried 7 of them.
