Craft Brew Bar StoryWhat Hops Has To Do With It


One huge motivator and inspiration in opening a craft beer bar was an experience I had in Budapest, Hungary.

My buddy and I were only planning to have our beercation in Ireland, but when he said he had a friend we could crash with in Budapest (and we looked up how cheap flights were), it was a no-brainer.

Between all of the remarkable food, historic architecture and traditional thermal baths, our friend took us to a special place: Hops.

With the ridiculously large bottle selection, conversation-inspiring communal space, and endless appreciation for the craft and beer-drinking community – You can’t help but think of how awesome it would be to have a place like it back home.

After deciding shortly after that trip that I would open a craft beer bar, I sent a message to the owner of Hops asking for advice.

Although he admitted that he didn’t speak or write well in English, his message was clear:

“Make sure you have great music. “
