On 5th November, true to the saying “wine and beer together any time” the spotlight will be on beer at the 5th Martin’s Day Wine Festival this year expanded to four days. Guests can taste beer cocktails, and there will be a beer course with historian Csaba Katona whose talks could pass as stand-up comedy. Introducing “Two pipers in one kitchen”: Paul Mizener, Scottish master chef and András Frideczky, chef of the Gellért Bistro, with Hungarian and Scottish dishes and special Hungarian and Scottish craft beers
Welcome beer cocktails 6 p.m.
Beer course with historian Csaba Katona 6.30 p.m. – 8 p.m.

An hour and a half-long, seated lecture and beer tasting where guests thirsty for knowledge will certainly not be disappointed. This is guaranteed by the person of Csaba Katona who, as a historian of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences is both beer historian and humorist whose beer courses could pass as stand-up comedy.
