Open since: December 2017
Head brewer: François-Xavier D’Hollander
There’s this good old saying that all good stories start with a beer, and the first craft brewery to open in Buzău definitely fits the bill. It all started with the chance meeting between two enduro bikers. One beer (perhaps several) later, the plan to open a brewery started taking shape, and in December of 2017, the partnership between a French brewer and his Romanian associate saw their first concoction make an appearance on the market.
After moving to Romania, François spent a while working in the malt industry, and he still keeps in touch with the local produce. One Beer Later is currently one of the few breweries in the country using Romanian sourced base malt, which it has plenty of access to in the city of Buzău.
The brewery is still in its early days in terms of brewing endeavors and making a name for themselves on the market. With a repertoire consisting of an American Stout set to tantalize our taste buds late last year, and two IPAs to keep it company, we’re curious to see what great ideas will emerge from their fermenting vessels this year.
Their beers are currently available by 330ml bottle, in the following locations: check out their map.
