Scottish brewery BrewDog has launched a new bar of BrewDog Budapest. Located at the heart of Hungary’s capital near the eclectic Godzu, the bar is set to have the largest selection of craft beer in one location in the city.
BrewDog Budapest is the Aberdeenshire brewery’s 76th bar worldwide, and the 11th to launch this year.
With a capacity for 290 people, the spacious BrewDog Budapest will satisfy local thirst with 25 draft lines and a deli fridge stocked with a wide range of bottled and canned international and Hungarian craft beers.
Yesterday marked the opening of the brewer’s third bar in its home of Aberdeenshire, where the brewery’s HQ is situated.
In the last year, BrewDog has opened bars in Sweden, Iceland, South Korea, the UK and USA, where it has a state-of-the-art brewery in Columbus, Ohio.
In August, the brewery announced its half-year trading update, showing total revenue at £78 million, up by 55% versus the same time last year. Revenue of the brewery’s bar division was up by 92% and its UK retail sales had grown by 83%.
James Watt, BrewDog’s cofounder commented:
“Hungary has a rich and storied beer culture that continues today with a lively and passionate craft beer scene. A BrewDog bar in Budapest has been a long time coming and we could not be happier about the location. We’re looking forward to introducing locals and Budapest’s many international visitors to our flavour-packed brews and an amazing array of innovative beers from some awesome Hungarian craft breweries.”
