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.
After 1 year of being on the market, Patos Beer are finally delivering a new brew. This time it’s an Amber Ale, with caramel notes from the malt, and a subtle bitterness from the Centennial, Amarillo & Galaxy hops.
Amber Ale – 5% ABV
Always tackling new styles, White Collar Brewing are treating us to the first Imperial Pilsner brewed in the country. Crisp and light bodied like regular pilsners, it also has a more defined bitterness from the hops, a pronounced malt character, with a well hidden 7% ABV.
Imperial Pilsner – 7% ABV

Bromances are a wonderful thing, and nobody does bromance like Hop Hooligans and Bereta. Both breweries also craft excellent IPAs, so the latest batch of Nutbusters is everything you remembered & more: a double dry-hopped flavour bomb, with heaps of coconut, vanilla, & lactose.
Nutbusters – Coconut Vanilla Milkshake IPA – 6.7% ABV
Bust a nut over here.
To celebrate their upcoming 2 year anniversary, as well as certain political developments in the country, Capra Noastră have released 3 new beers. First one is a White Chocolate Stout, which features cocoa, coconut, vanilla, as well as an intriguing endive & ginger addition.
Ursul Păcălit De Capră – White Chocolate Stout – 7.5% ABV
Second in line from Capra Noastră is a White IPA, an elusive style that combines the hoppy character of an American IPA with the spicy, wheat-based notes of a Belgian Wit. Featuring 5 types of malt, 5 types of hops, 2 yeast strains, as well as coriander and honey.
Capra Cu 2 Bani – White IPA – 5.5% ABV
And last from the list of Capra Noastră releases, we have something on the (somewhat) more familiar side: a coffee stout, with 4 types of malt, 2 types of roasted malt, 2 types of caramel malt, 3 types of hops, 2 types of yeast, coffee beans and chicory.
Capra Cu 3 Nurori – Coffee Porter – 7% ABV
Try one here.
One Beer Later are finally taking on bottom-fermenting beers, starting off with their first lager. Rock ‘N’ Beer is a take on the good ol’ Bohemian lagers, with that typical malt-forward character, bready notes and a slight hoppy bitterness in the background.
Rock ‘N’ Beer – Czech Lager – 5% ABV
Get one here.
Anagram Brewing return to the sunny realms of IPAs with Zen Den. A golden, medium bodied IPA, with an almost honey-like malt profile, and a double dose of dry hopping that results in a citrusy, elder flower aroma.
Zen Den – IPA – 6% ABV
Wicked Barrel are also returning to lighter beers, this time with a brand new release. Razzle Dazzle is a Pale Ale that goes to show that simple is sometimes best. At 5.1% ABV and with a generous helping of Citra hops, it is a light, fragrant and very moreish brew.
Razzle Dazzle – Pale Ale – 5.1% ABV
