Head brewer: Răzvan Şandru
The head brewer for Bere Sara firmly believes that the best beer in the world is, probably,
Carslberg the one you brew yourself. Not only that, but he also dreams of a time where each town and village in Romania will have its own brewery, much like they do in the western world.
Sara started off as a nano-brewery back in 2014, when it was brewed on-site for the Sara Guesthouse in Crivaia, Văliug village. The beer was only meant to be served on the premises, however, due to its increasing popularity in the region, the brewer quickly decided that expanding the operation was in order. Using Czech equipment, Belgian yeast, German barley that they malt themselves and water from a nearby spring, their ales are matured and ready for drinking in 21 days.
Bere Sara may have a small output and a range consisting of only two beers, but it’s got a steady thing going for it. Since it opened its production line, its availability has expanded from a couple dozen bars and restaurants in the area, to supermarkets across the country. Additionally, you can still buy it online, straight from their website.
