World-recognized by now, but still only in their 5th year of operation, their story is the perfect example how a simple but noble idea “Our goal is to brew great local beer and build a community around it”, faith and hard work could lead to something bigger. What to say, we can do nothing but agree with this spirit, as this also pretty much sums up everything we wish to achieve with BPBW – Beer Week in Budapest as well.
It all started with a trip to Belgium, then funnily enough volunteering at one of our current guest’s place in Chicago. Just to help you imagine how important good friends and good relationships are, we would like to point out that the good people at Pipeworks Brewing Company actually let our protagonist ghost brew his own beer and start up his business within their walls. We know that a lot of you already figured it out that our protagonist here is called Drew Fox, who after a successful Kickstarter campaign finally started his very own 18th Street Breweryin Gary, Indiana in 2013. Simply because “Every great city – in my opinion – needs a brewery” he said. True words indeed. Needless to say, we are extremely happy to host them here at BPBW 2018 | Beer Week in Budapest /// Tasting Sessions; feels like we start to establish a pretty sweet connection towards the Indiana and Illinois area!
