Élesztő (means „Yeast” in Hungarian) was founded in spring 2013. It was the frist – and the last up to this day – big craft-beer bar, which offers 21 taps of quality Hungarian craft-beer. Since Élesztő was opened by the organizers of Főzdefeszt – first Hungarian Craft-beer Festival, the festival that effectively established craft-beer in Hungary – it’s visitors have easy access to the ost exciting, most distinguished Hungarian brews. While we aim to showcase the best of Hungarian and increasingly international craft brewing, we always make sure, there are some nice session-beers on tap as well. Élesztő was never meant to be just a pub. Our real goal has been to found a cultural entertainment zone, a small-town sidestreet with its own rules, or an undergroud plaza, if you like.
