Open since: April 2018
Head brewer: Daniele Nembrini
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.
One of the newest breweries on the market, Nembeer is currently available in Sibiu and Cluj-Napoca, yet are looking to branch out across the country, in spite of their small output. Their debut range of 3 styles is available in 330ml bottles, and you can check their available locations, as well as the ones coming soon, on their website.
- Amarilla – American Pale Ale – 5.1% ABV
- Draculina – Belgian Saison – 6.6% ABV
- Boema – Bohemian Pilsner – 5.7% ABV
