Tamás Szalai

Beer Ambassador & Writer
Inspired by the first Hungarian craft beer festival, Tamás has spent the past seven years learning as much as he can about craft beer … and also tasting as much as possible! Tamás is a home-brewer, beer blogger, a full-time craft beer marketing manager, and a beer tour guide. His passion for beer led to him having one of his homebrews turned into the house beer of a Budapest craft pub, and his new line of beers will come out this fall. When not guiding or tasting, Tamás enjoys running with his beer-running club (the international Mikkeller Running Club), biking, eating, history, and being a tourist in his own town.
