In spite of its relatively small population, compared to other Romanian cities, Sibiu is rapidly catching up when it comes to its number of breweries.
Launched in April of 2018, the story of Nembeer goes back many years, when Daniele, an Italian passionate about beer, took a fateful trip to Belgium, where he was so thoroughly swayed by the Trappist monks and by the whole beer culture, that he decided to brew his own. Once back in the country, he picked up homebrewing, which he diligently worked on since October of 2011. And after he spent 4 years on perfecting recipes, he decided to embark on a business that would benefit all beer lovers, not just his homebrew loving friends.
Yet it wasn’t just beers that swayed the brewer’s mind, and there’s a reason he settled his gear in Romania. The local ladies definitely played their part, and it shows in the range of beers, each portraying a different persona: from the strong and alluring Belgian Saison, to the popular and summery APA, or the shy and delicate Bohemian Pislner, with its delicate foam curtaining the glass as it slips down her… oh, but we digress.
2019 marked their second year in the craft beer industry, with a lot of focus placed on Sibiu and the neighboring towns. They have attended numerous events and festivals in the area, often with draft-only releases, and as such, they have increased their visibility on the market. It is worth mentioning that Nembeer have grown to enjoy a lot of support from both local authorities as well as shops and bars, and out of their total output for 2019, 99% stayed in Sibiu, making them one of the city’s (and county’s) most iconic breweries.
This isn’t to say that their beers are strictly available in Sibiu. Their 330ml bottles are slowly working their way towards other cities in the country, so keep an eye on their list of locations for where you can pick a bottle or two.
