Craft Breweries in Sibiu

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.

The two craft breweries which do brew in-house are Urban Brewery, open since August 2017, and the newly added Nembeer, who joined the craft beer scene in April 2018.

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.

Craft Beer Bars and Shops in Sibiu

While not as busy as Bucharest or Cluj Napoca, the craft beer scene in Sibiu is slowly taking hold. There are a few places to keep an eye out for on your visit to this fantastic city.

St Andrew’s Scottish Pub

Small, cosy and traditional, this Scottish Pub is as close to the real thing you’ll find East of the North Sea! Plus, they have an excellent selection of local and international craft beers.

On tap, you’re likely to find a selection of Romanian craft beers from around the country, alongside more traditional offerings. The bottle range is even broader, covering pretty much every style you can think of.

With great food to go with your beer, and excellent music and events, it’s a perfect place to enjoy some excellent beers with friends, or the friendly locals. With an over 18’s only policy, expect a mature, adult environment.

Eco Zen Boutique

For take away craft beer, head to Eco Zen Boutique, purveyors of fine wines and even finer Romanian craft beers. They keep their stocks well up to date and are often among the first to offer the freshest beers on the market.

The craft beer loving owners organized the very first Sibiu craft beer festival in summer 2017.

Arhiva de Cafea și Ceai

While primarily specializing in tea and coffee, this cozy café close to the historic center has recently started stocking an increasing selection of Romanian craft beers as well. And while you’re there, do ask the staff if they have any handmade items available for sale, as they often collaborate with local artists and charities.
