The first ever Bucharest Craft Beer Festival will next weekend bring together all of Romania’s best craft beers, IPAs and ciders from the finest breweries, as well as a few tipples from the neighbours, including Bulgaria, Hungary and Serbia.
Breweries taking part include: Bereta, Clark’s Cider, Sikaru, Zaganu, Caledonian Brewery, Csiki Sor and Ground Zero Beer (whose nine per cent Imperial Fuck IPA is currently the most talked-about drink in Bucharest). Between them, the breweries taking part will be offering well over 50 beers and ciders to try. A brand-new cider will be launched at the event.
Given that the organisers are the same behind the successful Bucharest Burger Fest, you can also expect to find some decent grub on offer too: gourmet burgers, wood-fired pizza and Mexican.
And there’s more: music.
On Friday, Niste Baieti will be entertaining the drinkers, while on Saturday Pinholes and Les Elephants Bizarres will be doing the honours. On Sunday the sounds are courtesy Jurjak and Grimus. There will also be a vinyl festival, DJs and a barber’s shop if you need to get your beard trimmed.
It all takes place at Verde Stop, at Strada Barbu Vacarescu 162-164 (next to Billa).
Doors open at 17:00 on Friday, 12:00 Saturday and Sunday. Admission is 15 lei per day (on the door), or you can get a ticket valid for all three days from iabilet.ro.
