Default Hello from Pecs, Hungary!

Hi everyone!
I'm brewing since 2008 and I've found your community just a few months ago. I must to say that my beers quality has changed dramatically since I met this community.
I have no more questions without instant answer - thanks for it!!!
Cheers!

Welcome to the site. What kinds of beers do you brew? What is your local beer scene like in Hungary?

Thanks for your question. Basically there is no homebrew scene in Hungary - Hungarians are mostly wine-drinkers. Homebrewing is legal since 2012 so our community is really young, but we work on it
If you are interested, just take a look on these articles, the second is a fresh one:

I see you import your beer from the US and Germany, are there no good breweries in Hungary besides a couple of brewpubs? I had also never heard the term "ruin pub", it seems to be mostly a matter of decorations.

These beers are brewed in Hungary in 12-15 craft breweries, mostly in the capital. In Central and Eastern Europe ales were literally unknowns until the last few years. So the beer market is full of core lagers made by multinational corporations such InBew, Brau Union (Heineken), SABMiller and so on. Craft brewers have only 0,5% of the market and the majority of their sellings are also lager beers. So if you want to drink a good pint you have to make it for yourself and by yourself if you don't live in the capital.
It's funny, but homebrewers here like me are generally reading German or English sources and following these homebrewing styles. Just like me, being a huge fan of american style I brew mostly APAs, IPAs.
Ruin pub is a very bad translation of the Hungarian word romkocsma, but you're not too far to understand the conception

I just got done with an internship in Pécs. Perhaps we may have seen each other at Művész Presszó!

Greetings and welcome aboard.

This was quite timely for me. I'm currently on a 3 month assignment working in Gyongos, but spending the weekends in Budapest. I discovered Legenda last month and love their beers and have been frequenting their pub. But tonight I'll be hunting out some of the others in the blog post you linked to.

I'll be heading back to the US for the holidays, but I'll return here in January. If there's something beer related I can bring back for you, let me know. I live close to Northern Brewer's Milwaukee store (www.northernbrewer.com). If so, personal message me. I do plan to bring back some US craft beers if I can find some folks to share them with.
