Spring may be upon us, but the industry is far from in need of a thawing session. Following the momentum of previous months, March has seen plenty of releases, from new beers to new breweries, and some very long awaited collaborations. So, as the country braces itself to stubbornly enjoy a cold one on a sunny-ish terrace, let’s take a look at what’s on the brewer’s table.
February may have be the shortest month of the year, but there has been no shortage of new beers to enjoy. We hear tales of collaborations, gypsy brewers and the first whispers of new events coming up. And so, as 2019 shifts up another gear and winter takes the backseat, let’s grab a cold one and see what’s been going on.
We were expecting January to be a slow, post-Christmas-blues-y kind of month. It was definitely not the case, and with quite a surprising number of new releases, as well as some excitement looming on the horizon, we decided to compile a monthly review to do it all justice. After an action packed 2018 that saw an influx of new beers and breweries to the country, this month has hinted that there’s even more where that came from in 2019. Let’s take a look.
Well, they've gone and done it, the absolute madmen: with 22 new breweries and 161 labels released, 2018 has been frothing with activity. Looking back to just five years ago, the growth we have seen this year alone is outstanding. But it also calls for taking a step back, pouring yourself a pint, and contemplating what's in the pipes for the future of the brewing industry.
This summer was a right old scorcher, and we're pretty sure you guys also got your thirst on as a result. As luck had it, it seems that this summer played host to a whole plethora of beer festivals as well. All in all, there were plenty of opportunities to kick back and indulge in a beery treat, and with 43 new labels launched as well as (a new record of) 7 new breweries, the industry has seen quite a busy quarter.
It may feel like spring is a long way coming (we're sure we're not the only ones with their heating still on), but that doesn't mean the craft beer industry in Romania is still in hibernation. In fact, much has happened in the first three months of 2018, from new breweries popping up, to new beers being brewed and very lucrative collaborations, as well as the first beer festival of the year already looming on the horizon.
This summer was a great season for Romanian craft beer, one that saw numerous new breweries opening up, existing breweries taking big steps forward and more than a few beer soaked events.
It’s been an eventful month and a bit since we last wrote and we’ve been treated to several more new brews. There’s also news from two more breweries creeping onto the scene as well as a special anniversary coming up soon.
