Cool little beer store tucked away on Rakoczi ut. I arrived earlier on in the day and nobody was home but came back later on and the main door was open. The guy running the place was really nice. I did pick up a couple of bottles of Black Rose which I did not come across elsewhere. Unfortunately there is no other Hungarian beers available here. A nice focus on Belgian, German and Czech beers with plenty of glassware available. A decent beer store for locals to get their fix of good beers in Budapest.

Easy to find (I guess this was the new location). Best selection of beers in Budapest. OK prices. Armando (the owner) is a nice guy and knows what hes selling. A must when in Budapest.

Visited on a Friday afternoon last June 2014. Talked to the friendly owner/gypsy brewer and sampled the two self brewed beers from tap. Very nice selection of bottled beers, even one from a very small craft brwery in Gothenburg, Sweden, where Ive interned during school (Beerbliotek), surprising! Nice, fast service, Nice slection of beers, not the cheapest place, but with so much imports of quality beers, if is to be expected. Also very close to the tram (no 4 and 6) as well as several other nice bars around, 2 others on the same street, as well as Hopfanatic very close by walking.
The owner pointed out that there was a Hungarian craft beer festival in the city, marked it on our map and was helpful, friendly and service minded. Very nice place that I undoubtedly will return to if I find myself in Budapest again.
Actually more than a bottle shop where you can drink some cold beer from tap and a few of the bottles, than it is an actual bar. Never the less a nice place I can recommend to visit! Not an over abundance of domestic craft beers, but plenty of international/imported high quality craft beers on bottles, as well as some on tap.
Was one male and one female toilet available, none had TP or hand towels, but that couldve been coincidence just this day.

It is full of character this little gem of a bottle shop that also offers four ales on tap. About 150 bottled beers mainly from Belgium, USA, Hungary, and Germany, two Hungarians, one BrewDog and a Belgian one on tap. I had the 6% version of the excellent Grabanc IPA made by the owner himself. In this little shop there are a few tables and chairs to sit down and enjoy foreign and home made brews. Armando was a very friendly guy who recommended Hungarian bottled beers for me. Only good Beer is located within 15 minutes walking distance from the heart of the city centre. A must visit hotspot for beers in Budapest for sure. Cheers to Armando629 on ratebeer (visited, 31.07.2012).

Tiny shop, look for the bike sign outside. Well inside the building you will find a truly great selection of beer and glassware. Service is more like an 11, got my beers delivered to my hotel. Belgian, German, US and also some Czech beers to be found here. Hungarian micros as well. A must visit in Budapest.

What a LOVELY place! You get everything you want here. Also a nice and pleasant atmosphere. Not easy to find for tourists. And that is good :-) But not to difficult to find for beerlovers!

As long as you have the address (and it is open) this place isnt as difficult to find as advertised, but it is about the size of a bedroom. What it lacks in floor space, though, it more than makes up for in selection. I walked away with a number of excellent Danish and Belgian beers that I never thought I would find in Hungary. A must visit for anyone who makes it to Budapest.

Great little place. Lots of choice. 4 draft beers too. The owner clearly knows his stuff and is very helpful. I will be. Going back.

Uncommon finds for the region. Bottles + taps, includes 1 home beer (an IPA). No music in this tiny place makes the ambiance kind of awkward, but is ideal for getting to know the people sitting next to you. Worth supporting for sure.

I just returned from a 6 country beer tour of central Europe. This place was easily the best find of the trip (next closest of my tour places was maybe Omerta in Krakow or the Pilsner Urquell brewery in Pilzn). The people here are really great...and the craft beer selection amazing. I really enjoyed the feel of the place (like a college dorm room...in a very good way)...and how helpful the staff was. I only drank drafts while there...had 3 but they also gave me another 3 samples. They were trying to accomodate my US west coast hop passion...hard to do in Europe...but they succeeded. Unfortunately my travel schedule prevented my from getting into their bottle list. I recommend you visit this place at least twice while in Budapest. Note that it does close pretty early.
