MONYO BREWING, HUNGARY
MONYO Brewing Co. was established in 2014, in the heart of Kobanya, Budapest, to revolutionize microbrewing in Hungary. The main reason for creating a brewery was Adam Pein getting fed up with not being able to serve his bars’ guests with craft beer, as their quality was unstable and breweries were not able to maintain a constant, familiar taste. To achieve his goals he won over Antal Nemeth, who is presumably the best and most precise brewmaster in the country. MONYO Brewing is a place where people are driven by passion, knowledge and creativity. MONYO uses the latest technology, pays close attention to hygiene and uses only the best ingredients. MONYO is one of the fastest-growing breweries in Hungary, in 2015 we won the title ‘Brewery of the year’, and other foreign awards. MONYO Co. has both traditional and new wave beers.
Where can I find them?
We come from Főzdepark (Brewpark), Budapest, Hungary. Főzdepark is a partnership of four local craft breweries; MONYO Brewing Co., Mad Scientist, Horizont Beers, and HopTop Brewery, found in an industrial park. The hungarian craft beer revolution started six years ago with the first craft beer festival, called Főzdefeszt. Currently approx. 60 craft breweries operate in the country. The popularity of craft beers increases from day by day.
TASTED AND TESTED
Franky Four Fingers
Our most complex beer, the high alcohol percentage has nothing to do with any additional sugar. Made from traditional English ingredients, Maris Otter malt and Fuggle hop. It was aged in the bottle for a whole year to get its perfect characteristics. The result is a thick, red, rich malt drink. It tastes like sherry mixed with the aromas of the Fuggle hop. The Franky and Boris beers are limited editions, and are either in a 0,375 l or a 1,5 bottle. Only a few thousand are made. Each bottle has its own number and the year of production written on it, which is important because each year we keep the first 120 beers. We plan to make a special collection in the following years, which will contain the saved bottles.
