Brasov by Beer

Long celebrated as Romania's outdoor capital and undoubtedly Transylvania's prettiest town, Brasov is never in a hurry to do anything. So even if the German Saxons (the founders of the city) brewed a mean weizen for more than 1,000 years, the recent craft beer revolution has arrived, just like spring in this mountain city, very late and very quickly. This tour offers you the opportunity to taste the best local beers in Brasov’s hippest bars and learn the stories behind them, as you stroll the charming streets and admire the many pretty squares and historic monuments that help to make this Romania’s most beautiful city. Beer and culture? Sign us up!
