Location: Poiana Mărului, Caraș-Severin county
Open since: January 2020
Founder: Mihai Șomfelean
Situated in the idyllic village of Poiana Mărului, Fabrica de Bere Scorilo is a family run brewery operating since January 2020. Using ingredients from Austria, Germany and Slovenia, water from a nearby spring, as well as the expertise of Austrian brewmasters, they are currently producing one beer, a lager. The brewery itself contrasts the rustic scenery, and with a maximum yearly yield of 3000 hectoliters, we’re hoping to see them not only reach those figures, but also tackling new styles in the future.
Its name comes from the Dacian king Scorilo, and legend has it that, on the first day of spring, the sun hitting the nearby rock formation known as the Rock of Scorilo will lead the lucky ones to the old king’s treasure. For the time being, the beer is a bit of a treasure in itself, as it’s not easily found on the market. After their official launch at The Beer Institute in early February, Scorilo is still working its way into bars and shops across the country. In the meantime, you’re invited to pay the brewery a visit directly, and get a couple bottles or so right from the source.
