Location: Sibiu (currently brewed in Bavaria, Germany)
Available on the Romanian market since: October 2016
Their story begins, as the name suggests, in the year 1717, when the town of Sibiu saw the opening of the first brewery in the region. The original brewery has long closed since, however, three centuries later, 4 friends decided to pick up and revive the tradition.
1717 (pronounced ‘seventeen seventeen’) emerged on the Romanian market at the end of October 2016, and while their beers are currently brewed in partnership with a brewery in Germany (where they also get the ingredients used), they hope to open their own place in Sibiu in the years to come. The styles they tackled so far are two Weiß Beers, as well as a Red Ale and an anniversary edition beer, quite similar to champagne in taste and carbonation.
Their beers are available in a variety of shops and bars around the country (primarily the Transylvania region, with a recent emergence in Bucharest), as well as online at Berero Store. You can also check out their Facebook store to buy their beers directly from them, or see when and where one of their numerous food and beer pairing sessions is taking place.
