Monyo Brewing Co.
WELCOME TO OUR HOMEPAGE
MONYO Brewing Co. was established in 2014, in the heart of Kobanya, Budapest, to revolutionize microbrewing in Hungary. The main reason for creating a brewery was Adam Pein getting fed up with not being able to serve his bars’ guests with craft beer, as their quality was unstable and breweries were not able to maintain a constant, familiar taste. To achieve his goals he won over Antal Nemeth, who is presumably the best and most precise brewmaster in the country. MONYO Brewing is a place where people are driven by passion, knowledge and creativity. MONYO uses the latest technology, pays close attention to hygiene and uses only the best ingredients. MONYO is one of the fastest-growing breweries in Hungary, in 2015 we won the title 'Brewery of the year', and other foreign awards. MONYO Co. has both traditional and new wave beers. Our flagship product is Flying Rabbit IPA, in which the Citra hop guarantees a tropical flavour -orgy.
OUR CRAFT BEERS
American IPAABV: 6,5%, IBU: 61, SRM: 12, PLATO: 16,3°
There are two ways of making American IPA. One is when you make beer from basic ingredients with basic techniques, and the added American hop will give the beer its character. The other is when you try to uniquely balance the flavor with the American hop, giving the beer its own character. Flying Rabbit is the latter. We use 5 different kinds of malt during brewing, then we add the popular Citra hop. It smells and tastes like a tropical fruit, starts out sweet with a bitter aftertaste. It was born to fly.
Black SaisonABV: 9%, IBU: 19,5, SRM: 45, PLATO: 17°
MONYO Brewing Co. proudly presents the cruel carnivore, Black Alligator. The base of the beer is a traditional saison, which has a spicy taste thanks to 3 kinds of yeast, the juniper and the Alligator Pepper. The latest is a special kind of pepper from the western part of Africa, which gives a peppery yet citrusy taste. The Black Alligator is dark, like the skin of an alligator, but without the characteristics of the roasted malt found in other dark beers. Be careful, it might jump down your throat!
Brown PorterABV: 5,5%, IBU: 28, SRM: 28, PLATO: 13,1°
English dark beer can be produced in many different ways, but instead of a modern version ours follows a traditional English porter. We produce a relatable and popular Brown Porter. This is a dark beer which breaks the rules and has no sickeningly sweet aftertaste. When creating the recipe we used Maris Otter, the queen of malts, and added some characteristic ingredients such as peeled roasted malt, Brown Malt, caramel malt and the English hop, Fuggle. Who's it for? Hungarian dock workers and captains.
American Pale AleABV: 5,6%, IBU: 32, SRM: 5, PLATO: 13,3°
This is a traditional American Pale Ale, a piece in a ground breaking beer revolution, and the American brother of the English Pale Ale. It is an easy drinking pale ale with medium alcohol percent, and a full hop flavour. Our own American Beauty is made with 100% Pale Ale malt, the noblest Maris Otter, mixed and flavoured with Chinook and Mosaic hops. The tasty and light American Beauty will wrap everyone around her fingers.
Abbey TrippelABV: 10%, IBU: 20, SRM: 5, PLATO: 20,5°
MONYO Brewing Co. proudly presents a traditional Belgian trippel, the Belgian Trip. This strong, complex beer gets its characteristics from 3 kinds of yeast and a long aging process. Its special characteristics are the high alcohol percentage, the ester and the harmony of fruity taste. Have a sip, relax, and enjoy the journey!
Blonde AleABV: 4,9%, IBU: 15, SRM: 4, PLATO: 11,8°
As the name suggests, Summer Syndrome was meant to be a seasonal beer, but it was so popular that we have to produce it all year. Summer Syndrome is a refreshing, light blond ale with hop aromas, not just for summer days. We used a dry-hopping method, so it is tasty instead of bitter. Light, peachy, flowery taste, light sparkle. Perfect for days on the beach, concerts, or just night outs in the park. Take a selfie with it and upload it to Instagram!
Black IPAABV: 6,3%, IBU: 51, SRM: 46, PLATO: 15°
The New Generation series introduces the young and talented brewers of MONYO Brewing. The first beer from Péter Urbancsok is a Black IPA, which has all the characteristics of its kind. It is dark, but the roasted malt is not dominant. With closed eyes it could be mistaken for a normal IPA, because it is made with roasted malt colour extract. It has a resin and citrus-like flavour thanks to the American Warrior and Simcoe hops. Don't forget: Looks can be deceiving!
White IPAABV: 6,1%, IBU: 40, SRM: 4, PLATO: 15,2°
The New Generation series introduces the young and talented brewers of MONYO Brewing. The first beer from Gábor Czirják is a White IPA, a mixture of traditional American IPA and spicy Belgian wheat beer (witbier). The orange citrus flavour and freshness of the coriander mixes with the bitterness of the IPA and the new wave Galaxy hop. Two styles in one bottle for adventurous people.
BraggotABV: 9,2%, IBU: 10, SRM: 6, PLATO: 21°
MONYO Brewing Co. introduces its first historical beer that takes you back to ancient Egypt. The recipe was inspired by a 3000-year-old ceramic artefact, in which the remains of ancient beer were discovered. This gave the idea for this archaic beer that was made with the use of exquisite ingredients like silkweed-honey, saffron, golden raisin and grape juice. It is named after Anubis, the Egyptian god of mummification and the dead, who ushered the souls into the afterlife.
Sour AleABV: 5,4%, IBU: 5,7, SRM: 5, PLATO: 13,1°
MONYO Brewing Co. introduces its first sour ale, Sour Rise. This light, fruity summer beer was made with the use of passion fruit puree, and was soured with Lactobacillus and Pediococcus. It was brewed with rye malt that complements the sour characteristics. A real explosion of tropical flavors with an orange color and passionfruit scent. It is refreshingly bitter, the perfect thirst-quenching beverage for hot summer days.
Franky Four Fingers
Barley WineABV: 13%, IBU: 55, SRM: 23, PLATO: 22,5°
Our most complex beer, the high alcohol percentage has nothing to do with any additional sugar. Made from traditional English ingredients, Maris Otter malt and Fuggle hop. It was aged in the bottle for a whole year to get its perfect characteristics. The result is a thick, red, rich malt drink. It tastes like sherry mixed with the aromas of the Fuggle hop. The Franky and Boris beers are limited editions, and are either in a 0,375 l or a 1,5 bottle. Only a few thousand are made. Each bottle has its own number and the year of production written on it, which is important because each year we keep the first 120 beers. We plan to make a special collection in the following years, which will contain the saved bottles.
Boris the Blade
Russian Imperial StoutABV: 8%, IBU: 60, SRM: 50, PLATO: 20°
Traditional Russian Imperial Stout made with 7 different malts, it has rich taste and rich smell. The full-bodied, dark and thick drink is aged for a year for the perfect ratio of the hop and the malt. High alcohol percentage, berries and dried fruits with a light caramel-truffle finish. It is a beer to remember. The Franky and Boris beers are limited editions, and are either in a 0,375 l or a 1,5 bottle. Only a few thousand are made. Each bottle has its own number and the year of production written on it, which is important because each year we keep the first 120 beers. We plan to make a special collection in the following years, which will contain the saved bottles.
