  • They say that beer makes history better and we think that you will agree by the end of this Bucharest brewery tour! Whether this is your first time in Bucharest or your tenth, we’re confident that we’ve come up with the most fun way to discover our beautiful city.

    Your tour begins in Romana Square (Piata Romana), where you meet your local guide. Following a brief description of the area, we make our way, passing by Amzei Market, to our first stop to meet a local street vendor where we sample a traditional Romanian street pastry.

    Next up, we head over to one of our favourite craft beer bars, just a short walk away. While indulging in a flight of four local craft beers, we chat about the brewing processes and about the passion that goes into beer-making in Romania.

    Throughout the beer tour of Bucharest, we talk about the up-and-coming craft beer scene in Romania 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!

    Now, with our beer buzz setting in, we continue our walk down Victory Avenue, home to many of Bucharest’s most important landmarks, such as the Revolution Square, which boast a mix of royal and communist influences, perfectly reflecting the city’s complicated past.

    Next on our agenda is another hidden gem in a historical location with a great atmosphere that you’re sure to love. Here, we shall continue with our stories and local beer exploration as we taste one of the oldest beer brands in Romania. On route, you discover intriguing sights, such as the former National Theatre of Bucharest, the former Headquarters of the Communist Party, one of the oldest churches in Bucharest, Kretzulescu Church, and the University Square with its superb late 19th-century architecture.

    Our last stop is an exquisite turn-of-the-century townhouse, lovingly restored but with that irresistible sense of elegant decay so typical of Bucharest. Whether you choose to sit inside or outside, under the trees and vines, with grapes dangling overhead, you sample a selection of Romanian entrees (gustari), including goat’s cheese, cured meat, spring onions, and homemade bread, and take some time to relax and absorb the atmosphere of this extraordinary little hideaway. It is said that while Romanians love the culture and sophistication of urban life, when it comes to food it’s ALL about the peasant food (cucina povera) of the countryside, so this peasant platter is the perfect introduction to some of our most beloved Romanian flavours.

    But where is my beer we hear you ask?! No worries, we’ll order one for you and it just so happens to be the first craft beer ever produced in post-communist Romania. Cheers to that!

    Our Bucharest history and brewery 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.
