Hopaholic, located inside Budapest's party district, is a snug craft beer bar famed for its dizzying range of international craft beers. They source bottled beers from over 250 microbreweries across the world, supplemented by 10 rotating beers on tap. Do you feel like downing a cloudy, yeasty hefeweizen? Perhaps an imperial stout from Denmark sporting a 10% ABV? Or, rather, a tarty and fruity Moldavian-Hungarian lambic beer? Not a problem.
The bartenders are helpful and will provide samples to taste if you're feeling overwhelmed by all the options. As you can imagine with such a wide assortment, prices vary from a few euros a glass to up to €25 for a 12% ABV American barleywine.
Hopaholic eschews the typical signifiers of the craft beer genre—don't expect a decor with exposed fermentation tanks or tattoed-and-bearded hipster bartenders. Here the beers take center stage, as you can also tell by the customers, most of whomy are discerning beer fans quietly sipping away. Save for some cheese and crackers, Hopaholic doesn't serve food, but there are a couple of burger places nearby, including W35 and Kandalló.
