The classic values of beer and some craziness

The Reketye brewery was established in 2014 when the craft beer revolution has just started in Hungary.

The team’s mantra is simple – constant learning and progression, that will hopefully never stop.

The Reketye family is proud to say that they are the pioneers of the canned craft industry in Hungary, using water treated with reverse osmosis and playing around with water chemistry, having a unique pre-whirlpool cooler for better hop usage.

They look into the trends of today and create the ones of tomorrow and always try to learn and innovate to expand their boundaries.

Why Reketye Brewerey?

If you join the Reketye Brewery you will be part of a fun and cool team.

Their brewery is outside the city centre but their amazing beers will compensate every minute of it.

You can learn, taste and help out during every step of the way.

You will also get to know the history of their classic collection and taste their first ever beer, the Crafty Bewer or dive into their seasonal collection of beers like Pop My Cherry or the Horny Pony.

The rise of the yeast – the craft beer revolution

These days, the ‘craft beer revolution‘ has shaken things up in Budapest and many small breweries (and now some larger ones) have created a craft beer community and a craft beer scene that is becoming known internationally.

There’s hardly a block in downtown Budapest that doesn’t have at least one pub with a great craft beer selection.

The Hungarian craft beer revolution has been quickly building momentum over the past several years, and there are many homegrown brews and bars in Budapest worth seeking out.

Welcome to breathtaking Budapest – everything you need to know

“It’s beautiful here. They said that of course, that Budapest is beautiful. But it is in fact almost ludicrously beautiful.”

Anthony Bourdain

Budapest counts as one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. You can explore the World Heritage site of Buda castle, visit amazing old churches and squares, take a long walk through beautiful avenues and have a look at the city from the breathtaking bridges.
