Sibiu is a wonderful, olde worlde city, popular for its medieval architecture and a myriad of cultural festivals throughout the year. It’s also home to some great craft beer bars.
Read on to discover where to find Romanian craft beer in Sibiu, and check out the handy map for a bar or shop near you.
There are currently 2 craft breweries in Sibiu. Funnily enough, the most well known is 1717, who actually brew in Germany for the time being, but call Sibiu home. You’ll find their beer on tap and by the bottle in several bars throughout the town.
And if you fancy a quick tour outside the city, the Bere Sibiu brewery lays about 20 kilometers away, in a little village called Săliște.
