If you thought you were gonna survive this year without some crazy Italian vibes, you couldn't be more wrong. 🇮🇹🇮🇹🇮🇹 Revealing a newcomer in our history, please give a big applause to Ritual Lab brewing&growing!
In a world full of imperial shades, barreled darkness, soured menace and hazy pastry hashtags, it is always refreshing to see something modern which is still undoubtedly traditional; a respect to a clear craft. 🙌 We've heard so many good things about them from other brewers beforehand so when we read a bit of background story about their start and ongoing projects it became clear that we need them here. Last but not least their flawless Ritual Pils also helped a bit making this decision.
It might be a cliche to mention again how great to see when art and beer merge together such a delicate way like in their hands. But there is something even more to be respected here: we can't agree enough on their "On The Road" project. The Italian brewer incarnations of Kerouac are operating their own cold chain system, in Italy their beers are always delivered in temperature controlled conditions ensuring the freshest, "from fermenter to glass" experience one could get. We don't say Italy is not a place to move to and taste this experience at first hand, but it is only three months left till our BPBW 2019 | Budapest Beer Week /// Tasting Sessions to try their beers poured personally by them. 🦁🦁🦁 bpbw.hu/tickets/
It might also be true that all roads lead to Rome, but we're 100% sure that all roads pass through Budapest. At least in our world. #nevergofullcraft ... See MoreSee Less
Tanker Brewery - it's a beer, it's a ship, it's a new brewery we announce for Budapest Beer Week! 🛳️ Another high five for Estonia.
Humble people who let their beers talk for themselves. Last year they already went full craft with us as guests - just like Dois Corvos for example -, so this year we invited them to stand on the other side of the stands.

Brew By Numbers is art and we appreciate art for sure. All the breweries envy them for their simply genius designs and all the geeks love their flawless, rich and beautiful beers, so - again - it's a match made in heaven! 😇 On the other hand they are super-down to earth blokes, but you already knew we're only dealing with these kind of people anyway. Good times all the times!
Talking about good times. ⚡⚡⚡ If you haven't already took care of your tickets, do yourself a favor and grab them now at bitly.com/nevergofullcraft!
Our mails last year ended up in their spam folder, that's why we haven't had the chance to feature them in 2018. We recently met by person and took care one of the quickest and easiest booking in the history of BPBW! 🤝
Talking about history. BPBW 2019 | Budapest Beer Week /// Tasting Sessions will go down in history as one for the books for sure! 🤘🤘🤘 We're still announcing some crazy names on the brewery side, but trust us, the official afterparties (you're already on the list with your tasting session tickets) will also blow your mind with the band side. See you in the pit! #nevergofullcraft ... See MoreSee Less
We simply can't go too craft when it comes to paying credits to some of the top people who helped us pulling BPBW18 together. #nevergofullcraft There are some outstanding breweries out there, there are rockstar brewers around, and there is Pipeworks Brewing Company, who are coming back to check how's the business in Budapest one year later.
If you've seen them last year, you know what we mean. If not, secure your tickets now via bpbw.hu/tickets/!!! 🔥🔥🔥
'The exception proves the rule' one might would say and when the godfathers of Chicago wanna send you 8 kegs instead of the asked 4, you simply better shut your mouth and do what they say. This is how they happened to have an amazing double stand at last year's main events, and damn those brews were tasty as hell. 👹👹👹 Black barley wines, celery goses, berried imperial stouts...? Sure they delivered top class in these styles but they were also not afraid to make a statement, and serve their flawless Pilsner with the ultimate label on it: PREMIUM. Internal rumors say they are turning the whole brewery into full lager production this year, but we all know this won't be an easy battle...Ninja vs. Unicorn vs. the Bottom Fermentation? Pick your side and join the fight at the BPBW 2019 | Budapest Beer Week /// Tasting Sessions in May!
A new day, a new brewery, a new country! Paying a very old one from the many of our debts, please welcome Brouwerij Alvinne, the first ever 🇧🇪 Belgian brewery of BPBW history!
Trust us, this long wait wasn't intended at all from our side. ✌ Through our 2 years of existence we've been talking with many of the most recognized players of the wildly famous historical Belgian beer scene, and in the end we are happy to finally welcome one of the most forward thinking of them.
They are one of the innovators of what modern Belgian beer and as they like to call, Flemish Sour Ales mean these days. 5 foeders (1 of those has an impressive 75hl capacity), 100 wine barrels from the finest regions, traditional and wild ales, a true dedication to both wood, both the overlord of all the ingredients what these types of beers need: TIME. ⏳ But seriously, would you expect anything less from a brewery which has a unique blend house strain called Morpheus?
#nevergofullcraft Seriously. You seem to think too much bro, that is your problem. ⌛ So just take both the red and blue pills, close your eyes, count to ten and let the Sandman trap you in time, dream and reality with the magic of Alvinne at the BPBW 2019 | Budapest Beer Week /// Tasting Sessions. ...

With this announcement we are entering the second half of our lineup, but seriously, Who cares? We do and you should too. Bevog Brewery is back in the mix for 2019!
🔖 On a related note - if you haven't already done that - you can be back to your abandoned cart at bpbw.hu/tickets/...
Our neighbours from just beyond the borders are one of the most laid back people in the whole industry we know. So when it comes to the best names our closer region could offer, it is no brainer that Vasja, Janez and their A-team go serious in this game. 🅰 We wouldn't lie too much saying that they literally confirmed their attendance whilst we were still writing the invitation to them. Brotherhood it is, fueled by a passion for modern Eastern European beer and the crazy hearts which lead us organizing our own festivals and raising the new Austro-Hungarian Beer Monarchy together. (This IS a thing. We just made this up!) 🇦🇹🇭🇺 ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
In the end this is "just" beer and there are enough megalomaniacs out there, so we leave the big words to them. You have BPBW 2019 | Budapest Beer Week /// Tasting Sessions anyway! #nevergofullcraft ... See MoreSee Less
