Location: Voluntari, Ilfov county
Brewers: Doru Negrei & Cătălin Minea
Opened since: July 2017
Emerging unto the craft beer scene in July 2017, when the first beers were made available for sale, Amistad Beer is the result of an architect and a construction engineer who, after several years of home brewing on the kitchen hob, decided that the time has come to kick things up on a larger scale and open a brewery. The name itself comes from Spanish, meaning ‘friendship’, and it tells the story of how the friendship between two brewers, Doru and Cătălin, and their marketing partner Bogdan, came to a fruitful result in the shape of beers.
Self-dubbed ‘the smallest microbrewery in Romania’, their 50 liter setup is dangerously straddling the border between brewery and glorified homebrewing, as it allows for a maximum output of 100 liters per day. Either way, it doesn’t seem to have been a setback, as Amistad made its debut with a core range of surprising variety: 7 different beers, from IPAs and Porters to a bolder flavor approach, incorporating ingredients such as chili, chocolate or passion fruit.
We look forward to seeing what they come up with next!
