THE MONYO STORY
MONYO Brewing, one of the Hungary's first new-wave breweries, was founded in 2014 by Pein Ádám and Németh Anti in Kőbánya with the aim of creating craft beer 2.0. Adam was sick of trying to serve his consumers with so-called craft beers at Calvin Square's MONYO, the quality were extremely volatile at that time. The idea of setting his own brewery up dates back to that time. All he had to do was to find one man who could brew beer. At that time Anti was highly recommended.
Anti was one of the first home brewers in the country. Like many others in the industry, he started to brew at home in the kitchen. Finally, he was so impressed by the creative world of brewing, so he left his university teaching career to set up an illegal brewery for his friends. From morning to night, he experimented different beers in his secret "lab" until he became a gipsy (contract) brewer, where he could make his recipes in large quantities in different breweries. By this time, his groundbreaking beers became more and more popular in a wider range of consumers.
They both finally went all in and took all their assets and energy and they built MONYO Brewing for almost half a year. The goal in the first minute was the same as today: the production of uncompromising beers for consumers.
5 YEARS of MONYO
In the last five years, the initial staff of 4 has been transformed into a team of 13 and the number of bars has doubled. We brewed more than 80 different types of beer, which we have already exported outside of Europe to Mexico, Canada and even China. We brewed beer together with the bands Quimby and Ivan & The Parazol, the bishop of Székesfehérvár, and even the Hungarian national goalkeeper Adam Bogdán made his beer in MONYO. Tokaj aszú pomace, Basque cheesecake and freshly arrived oysters from the French coast all ended up in our brew house. We went to the most prestigious festivals in Europe, from Spain to Russia, and won numerous awards for our beers in foreign and domestic competitions. Humor and craziness are not far behind us, so we are in a lot of craziness, but if we have to, we make a stand for serious topics and the values we think are important.
Perhaps, what we are most proud of is the strong and active community behind the MONYO brand, formed over the years. Besides many experiences and positive feedback we are pleased to think of “MONYO, the adopted pug, “Flying Rabbit” tattoos in your arms, or the guy who drew his girlfriend on a beer label in our graphic style for her birthday. Without you, MONYO Brewing would not be complete.
The goal of MONYO Brewing is to provide a complex experience for both consumers and manufacturers. It’s a fair and credible brand in the marketplace that thinks innovatively and always stands for quality, humor and creativity.
„We take brewing seriously, everything else is fun.”
