Davy Byrne's Pub 2 days ago

An Irish pub created from the thoughts and minds of three very different men...An Irishman from Naas, who has talked about opening a pub in Budapest for the last five years. An Irish-American lad from Virginia (grandmother’s family originally from Dublin and Dundalk and go by the family name of Byrne) who has been brewing beer and visiting pubs in Budapest for ten years, but always felt something was missing. A Hungarian whose specialty is wine, (it’s served in our pub and it’s delicious!) loves a great cigar and could see our vision...

We are striving to provide an authentic yet modern take on a proper Irish pub, in the heart of the 6th district of Budapest. We take our name from a young lad named Davy Byrne, of County Wicklow, whose name graced a Duke Street pub. This pub was made famous by James Joyce, whose relationship and descriptions of a certain Leopold Bloom, in his novel Ulysses (character based on a Hungarian fella, connections anyone?) are our link between our pub in literary history and our Hungarian location, here in Budapest.

Joyce described Davy Byrne, himself, and the pub as such:

“He entered Davy Byrnes. Moral pub. He doesn’t chat. Stands a drink now and then. But in a leap year once in four. Cashed a check for me once.”

“Nice quiet bar. Nice piece of wood in that counter. Nicely planed. Like the way it curves.”


When you combine good friends (new and old), quality products/service with a smile, a kind word, a funny joke, the peal of laughter and the wonderful interior of our pub, you’ll want to come back for more and more. We would love to have you stop by, have a drink or two, and experience the best craic to be found in Budapest. How do we know its the best craic in Budapest? Because you’ll be there!

See you soon!

"Come, sit we by the fireside
And roundly drink we hear,
Till that we see our cheeks all dyed
And noses tanned with beer." -  Mr. Robert Herrick

Greatest Love 4 days ago

"But the greatest love-the love above all loves,
Even greater than that of a mother...
Is the tender, passionate, undying love,
Of one beer drunken slob for another." - Irish ballad

Thank You 4 days ago

Thank you, craft beer breweries, for making my drinking problem seem like a neat hobby

Here's to the nights we'll never remember, with the friends we'oll never forget.

Padstow Brewing Co 6 days ago

Padstow Brewing Company was founded in 2013, using a tiny 100 litre kit in an old surf-shower. It wasn’t long before the beer was being sold in Cornish pubs and more space and capacity were needed.

We have grown quickly and are now able to brew around 9000 pints per week on our custom-built brewery on the outskirts of Padstow, Cornwall. We have a small dedicated team who help with brewing, hand-bottling and distribution.

We’re small, passionate, focussing on the highest quality and the best service. And we plan to stay that way.

Monk's Pub Chicago 3 weeks ago

Monk's Pub derived its name from a monastery where the owner visited one summer as a young boy. Impressed with his stay, he thought to himself if I ever own a public house, I'm going to call it Monk's! May of 1978, his boyhood dream became a reality when he acquired a public house in Chicago and called it Monk's Pub.

Westerham Brewery Company Limited 3 weeks ago

Established in 2004 by Robert Wicks, the Westerham Brewery Company is proud to bring brewing back to the historic town of Westerham. With a rich brewing heritage, Westerham can once again be proud of locally brewed, top quality real ales.

Producing exceptional craft beer for the local market, we support the initiative to reduce food miles in the supply chain. Many ‘national brands’ are transported long distances and suffer from poor storage and handling.

Westerham Brewery Company has revived many of the much-loved flavours of the old Black Eagle Brewery, which closed in 1965 following the catastrophic consolidation by the ‘Big Brewers’ in the 1950’s.

Overdrive is a crisp and clean American Pale Ale with an assertive bitterness and aromatic and flavoursome hop profile. Two different hops are used in the whirlpool and for dry hopping.

Armistice Brewing Company 4 weeks ago

Armistice Brewing Company makes the kind of beer that brings people together, whether they be friends, strangers, or even enemies. We believe that at its best, beer makes it easier to have a conversation with someone who you might not otherwise. When it's doing its best work, beer bridges differences and fosters understanding. Our public house in Richmond, CA is not far from the Kaiser shipyards, where Rosie's of all colors and backgrounds collaborated to build the ships that would bring World War II to a close. We like to think that we're brewing beer with the same spirit of peace and collaboration, and we invite everyone to come enjoy a pint with us.

We decided to go small and open our own taproom because we want to ensure that our beer is served the way it was intended -- at peak freshness, right from the source, and in the kind of variety that we appreciate. We brew in very small batches, which allows us to experiment with ingredients that are both cutting edge and traditional, and because our taps turn-over fast, we'll always have something new for you to try. As homebrewers, we've won many awards for a diverse range of styles, and we'll continue to brew with that kind of variety at Armistice -- everything from aggressive new-world IPAs, crisp and malty German-style lagers, subtle English bitters, complex sours, nuanced barrel-aged beers, and inventive beers that transcend style boundaries and traditions. We're such a small, sibling-run operation that you'll often find our owner-brewers tending bar. We love talking about and getting feedback on the beers, so come on down and share a pint with us.

Artisanal Imports 4 weeks ago

Artisanal Imports, Inc. is a sales and marketing company specializing in imported alcoholic beverages. Our main office is in Austin, Texas where a full-time staff of experienced logistics, administrative and support personnel provide essential infrastructure. The purchase of inventory from Europe and Asia is coordinated out of this office and all customer purchase orders are processed here. Compliance with Federal and State law is managed for the entire country from Austin, guiding the company through a confusing maze of reporting and legal requirements.

A network of distributors is engaged to offer our brands to the retail – and ultimately, consumer – trade. Some key markets on the coasts are further supported by brokers and salespeople to assist in the effective marketing of our products. Many states have more than one distributor offering our brands and in each case we strive to effectively partner with our distributors to give our beverages the extra attention they deserve.

We maintain inventory in two public warehouses: New Jersey and California. Distributors place orders from either warehouse of their choosing. This flexibility allows them to cost-effectively manage their freight and take inventory when they need it. It’s our goal to allow distributors to carry an adequate supply of product without surplus. By making it easy for them to fill orders as often as they would like, we believe our distributors will always have the freshest possible products in stock and in their markets.

Gueuzerie Tilquin 1 month ago

Installed in Bierghes in the Senne valley, the Gueuzerie Tilquin is the only gueuze blendery in Wallonia. A gueuzerie, or Geuzestekerij in Dutch, is an enterprise where Gueuze à l’ancienne (or Oude Geuze) is blended.

Freshly brewed worts  are purchased from different producers in the region (Payottenland and Brussels), and pumped in oak barrels  for fermentation and ripening, during 1, 2 or 3 years. The lambics obtained are blended and bottled to give, after 6 months of refermentation, the Gueuze Tilquin à l’ancienne, which has 7.0% alc / vol and is available in 37,5cl and 75cl bottles.
