There’s always a new Romanian craft beer out there, waiting for you to try it out. So here’s a list of the latest releases, both new labels and new batches, from the past 15 days, brought to you in collaboration with online shop Berero Store.
New batch of Amistad‘s Red IPA is out and about this week, featuring their well known hoppy bitterness and sweet notes from the malts used.
From Dusk Till Dawn – Red IPA – 6.3% ABV
Angel meets wicked in the first collaboration between Oriel Beer and Wicked Barrel. Brewed with 7 types of malt, barley & oat flakes, lactose, as well as Belgian yeast, and matured for 4 months before seeing the light of day. Expect intense notes of coffee, molasses, vanilla & chocolate.
See The Light? – Belgian Imperial Stout – 10% ABV
Grab one here.
After their smoked lager collaboration, Zăganu and Hop Hooligans bring us a second brew, this time on the tamer side. Brewed at the Zăganu brewery, this easy drinking India Pale Lager was then dry-hopped with Citra and Amarillo.
India Pale Lager – 6% ABV
Hop Hooligans love a bit of BBC hops, as well as cosmic themes, so it was little wonder that the combo would come back. The first in what promises to be a DDH DIPA series, and packed with heaps of Comet BBC and Centennial BBC for an extra juicy haze.
Collision Course – DDH DIPA – 8.5% ABV
Grab yours here.
We had to do a double-take when we saw the ABV on this one: at 3.8%, this Hop Hooligans collaboration with Yria Cerveza Artesanal prefers to let the hops and adjuncts do the talking. Surprisingly thick-bodied, full of blackcurrants, lactose, Citra & Galaxy hops, and thoroughly sessionable.
Alien Juice – DDH Milkshake IPA – 3.8% ABV
Order one here.
Perfektum don’t make dark beers often, but when they do, they’re IPAs. Lots of roasted malt, coffee and caramel notes, and with double the amount of hops to give it a complex bitterness, backed by 5 different hops: Magnum, Amarillo, Centennial, Galaxy & Columbus.
Double Black IPA – 8.2% ABV
