Head brewer: Radu Chițu
Named after the iconic casino building in Constanța, Bere Cazino started producing beer commercially in June 2016. With over 20 years of experience in the brewing field, and after working in a Romania based Heineken subsidiary, the head brewer set off with one mission: to produce a beer that would make its way to its consumers within 24 hours after leaving their premises.
The brewery specializes in traditional lagers, with an ABV of around 5.2% – 5.4%, fermented for at least 21 days. It is worth mentioning that the head brewer has a different approach to beer, and while all of the beers presented in this database are unpasteurized and unfiltered, his fall in a special category. Due to the old school bottling techniques, the brewer recommends that the beer is drank fresh, and that special attention must be paid to the ‘best before’ dates on the label, as the beer will only reveal its true flavor and potential within a maximum of 9 days after being bottled. (This is also why the bottles in our photo are empty: with a beer so fickle, it’s best to drink them straight away rather than let them go to waste.)
In December 2017, they also joined in the national trend of brewing beer for Romanian bands, and are currently producing the Tari Ca Munții (Strong Like the Mountains) beer for the band Trooper.
The Bere Cazino brews are available either in plastic containers, bottled on site at their craft beer shop on Piata Tomis 3 street in Constanța, or in 330ml bottles available in a wide array of locations around the seaside, as well as Bucharest.
