Brasov by Beer

Local Craft Beers, Sights, and Stories

Adult
€55

Long celebrated as Romania's outdoor capital and undoubtedly Transylvania's prettiest town, Brasov is never in a hurry to do anything. So even if the German Saxons (the founders of the city) brewed a mean weizen for more than 1,000 years, the recent craft beer revolution has arrived, just like spring in this mountain city, very late and very quickly. This Brasov brewery tour offers you the opportunity to taste the best local beers in Brasov’s hippest bars and learn the stories behind them, as you stroll the charming streets and admire the many pretty squares and historic monuments that help to make this Romania’s most beautiful city. Beer and culture? Sign us up!

  • They say that beer makes history better and we think that you will agree by the end of this Brasov beer tour! We’re confident that we’ve come up with the most fun way to discover our beautiful city, combining beer with a stroll through the charming streets of beautiful Brasov.

    We greet you in front of Brasov City Hall (known by locals as Primarie), next to the Roman she-wolf statue. Following a brief introduction to the area, we make our way to our first stop to meet a local street food vendor to sample a traditional Romanian street pastry — we can’t have you drinking on an empty stomach can we?!

    Time for our first beer of the evening. We head over to one of our favourite bars, just a short walk away, where we enjoy a local craft beer accompanied by a traditional cheese platter (prepared with a twist) — delish! We chat about the brewing processes applied here and the passion that goes into beer-making in Romania.

    Throughout the brewery tour, we talk about the up-and-coming craft beer scene in Brasov and introduce you to our local history and culture with a carefully curated assortment of tales that are sure to get you bang up to date!

    With our beer buzz setting in, we continue our walk through some of the most scenic streets offering you the chance to discover some of the main tourist highlights which perfectly reflect the city’s Saxon past.

    Next on our agenda is another hidden gem, one of our favorite small squares in the city where we’ll find another hip bar with a great atmosphere that you’re sure to love. As we walk, you discover intriguing sights, such as the former red light district, the third narrowest street in Europe, and the location of the last sizable gothic church in southeast Europe. Upon arrival, we continue with our stories and local beer exploration as we taste one of the most famous of the Romanian communist beer brands.

    Our last stop is at a bar which offers the largest choice of Romanian craft beers in town. We order one more beer here and continue our stories about this great city, which was once besieged unsuccessfully by none other than Vlad Tepes (aka Dracula).

    Our tour ends here but before you go, don’t forget to ask your local guide for tips on what else to see, do, and eat during your stay. It’s very likely that you will choose to continue exploring Romanian craft beers after the official end of your tour; feel free to stay a little longer, chatting with the very interesting local crowd. More often than not, we’ll be more than happy to join you!
