Gravity Brewing

Gravity is one of the few craft beer bars in Budapest where the brewery itself is located on the premises. This means that the handsome taproom, which is inside the brick-walled basement of a pre-war building, abuts a hall fitted with steel tanks, a system of hoses, and electric dashboards (there's a see-through door). The beers span approachable west coast IPAs, rye beers, and hefty imperial stouts with double-digit alcohol.

At any time, there’s twelve on tap, of which a couple usually come from other Hungarian producers, such as the hops-infused cider made by Budaprés. Gravity Brewing is a project of American native Greg Kieckhefer and the local staff speak perfect English. Price points are friendlier than at comparable craft beer bars.
