Horizont Brewing - innovative craft brewery from Budapest
Earlier this year, during our most recent stay in Budapest, the wonderful capital of Hungary, we got to visit two innovative artisan breweries, that create excellent beers in a historic brewing milieu close to the city center. In this post we introduce Horizont Brewing, and awarded, internationally well-known, independent microbrewery, that is one of the craft beer pioneers of Hungary.
Horizont has also created wonderful food & beer pairs, and their beers are available in all Michelin-starred restaurants of Hungary. In Budapest, you can also find Horizon brews in several craft beer pubs and in many grocery stores. Outside Hungary, it’s possible to order Horizont beers from their online store (all EU countries plus UK), and you can also find Horizont Brewing in many international beer festivals. Before the pandemic hit, Horizont had a taproom in the city center of Budapest, and there are plans to open up another one in the future.
Tasting Horizont Brewing beers
Horizont keeps creating both classic and modern beers, that are popular among wide range of consumers. The Core Series includes easily enjoyable “everyday” brews that introduce different beer styles from Hoppy Lager to Stout. Horizont Sour Series focuses on wonderfully fruity sour beers, and Selfish Games is about more experimental beers in different styles. In addition, as the cherry on top of a cake, there is Night Shift, a stylish series of delicious barrel-aged beers. For the barrel project, Horizont has ordered a lot of bourbon and rum barrels from the US, and also wine barrels are used for beer aging.
We have so far tasted almost 20 different Horizont brews, from summery Sours to malty Märzen and from easy Pale Ales to dark and strong Night Shift Barleywines. The quality of Horizont beers has been very convincing regardless of the beer style, and it’s great that the brewery keeps launching new, interesting brews, both easy and experimental, and expanding their amazing barrel series too!
We chose four of our favorites in different styles below – click the pics to read more of each beer and to see our our reviews and ratings!
