Today's stars of the BPBW 2020 | Budapest Beer Week /// Tasting Sessions brewery list is another long-awaited member of our all-time cast. Thinking how ubiquitous they are it might seem a surprise having their Budapest debut only in our third edition. As always, the story is a bit more complicated, but Dry & Bitter Brewing Company from Denmark is finally coming to BPBW tasting Sessions. 🇩🇰🇩🇰🇩🇰
After running the amazing Fermentoren bar in Copenhagen since 2011, Søren Parker Wagnerestablished his very Dry & Bitter in 2015 and they haven't ever stopped since then. With a huge focus on super fresh IPAs, porters, fruit-twisted beers and their alternative fermentation barrel program, they quickly became one of the wildest players in the Scandinavian, and now international beer scene. And you only question why the IPA game is so strong with them until you realize that he actually worked with Shaun Hill during their years at Nørrebro Bryghus. "He basically taught me everything I know about hops" - he said in an interview and we can't wait to find out what these twists mean.
So long story short, we've been talking with Søren pretty much since our very first attempts starting Budapest Beer Week, but those who know his restless personality might think having them here in our third year already is actually a privilege. With his one leg still in New York doing a collab, he is already knocking on the door of your neighborhood brewery, it doesn't matter where you live.
May might be still a bit far away, but apparently, you won't have to wait that long to meet Søren and try his team's beers. Because after the Haze Fest in Timisoara 🇷🇴🇷🇴🇷🇴 he is paying a quick visit to Budapest on Monday - maybe a collab, psst! - and on the 21st night you'll have the chance to meet him in person, chat about and of course, try their awesome beers at a mini TTO-Meet The brewer night at KEG. 🇭🇺🇭🇺🇭🇺 Event in the comments... #nevergofullcraft ...

Another 2nd-timer, that has been a no-brainer, but a go-getter who immediately said YES again, it's Finback Brewery 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 coming back to Budapest in 2020 for BPBW 2020 | Budapest Beer Week /// Tasting Sessions!
Breweries from the United States always had special attention here, but they have been the favorite brewery for many visitors this year 🖤 as one of the most creative and diverse beer style surfers, from wine and bourbon barrel-aged black goses through the juice bomb IPAs to the cherrywood-smoked mild ales that sure won't let us down during the mayhem in May! Good times ahead and this has only been our 3rd announcement so far... Just wait and see.

A brewery that we wanted to host from day one, but we'll only get the chance to feature for the first time at BPBW 2020 | Budapest Beer Week /// Tasting Sessions, please welcome the Göteborg OGs Dugges Bryggeri in the mix!
🇸🇪🇸🇪🇸🇪 We've been promising you new names and we walk the walk. 19 days left of the Early Bird period and tickets started to go really well after yesterday's first announcement... But you are probably a ticket holder already, so we don't need to have any nasty sales pitches (not that we have any) and we can just appreciate the fact that we still carry the torch when it comes to having a really strong Swedish representation both from the visitor and the brewery side!
It'd be essential to use our #nevergofullcraft catch-phrase even here, but if you've ever had any of their beers (and we sure you had), you know that these guys actually go full craft all the time. ⛈️🏝️🍻 Just like us.
Oh, well, we'll just leave the link here anyway for the tickets, maybe you just wish to share this post with your friends who have been hesitating to join you and us again by next year... Don't sleep on this! 🦁🦁🦁 bpbw.hu/tickets/... See MoreSee Less
One of our favorite parts of the BPBW is doing these long announcements... Necessary? Nahh. Fun? Hell yeah. 👹
We've been promising you mostly new participants but we wanted to start dropping these names with a brewery that we'll be hosting for the 2nd time at BPBW 2020 | Budapest Beer Week /// Tasting Sessions!
🇷🇺🇷🇺🇷🇺 They were one of the pioneers of the haze craze in Russia and they sure don't need advice either when it comes to the topic of collaborations: Pizza Port, KCBC, Finback, De Molen, Other Half, Kabinet, BRLO, Fuerst Wiacek, and this list goes on and on and on... #nevergofullcraft They have bars in Berlin and Moscow but they easily find their way in our capital as well as this year their TTO event was one of the most visited ones!

Ever since this May we've been promising a party for our amazing volunteer team we kept postponing as we couldn't find a date that would perfectly fit for everyone.
With the BPBW2020 earliest bird tickets going on sale via our newsletter on Tuesday we couldn't really wait for any further, so we got together last night finally for some beers and good times. 🤯🤯🤯 Unfortunately we couldn't have everyone here, but we're sure you'll find familiar faces anyway. This is us. We are the crew.
Can't wait to get this going with this team! Next May will be here sooner than you'd think... #nevergofullcraft ... See MoreSee Less
