They say that beer makes history better and we think that you will agree by the end of this tour! Whether this is your first time in Bucharest or your tenth, we’re confident that we’ve come up with the most fun way to discover our beautiful city. Your tour begins in Romana Square (Piata Romana), where you will meet your local guide. Following a brief description of the area, we will make our way, passing by Amzei Market, to our first stop to meet a local street vendor where we’ll sample a traditional Romanian street pastry. Next up, we’ll head over to one of our favorite craft beer bars, just a short walk away. While indulging in a flight of four local craft beers, we’ll chat about the brewing processes and about the passion that goes into beer-making in Romania. Throughout the tour, we’ll talk about the up-and-coming craft beer scene in Romania and introduce you to our local history and culture with a carefully curated assortment of tales that are sure to get you to bang up to date! Now, with our beer buzz setting in, we will continue our walk down Victory Avenue, home to many of Bucharest’s most important landmarks, such as the Revolution Square, which boasts a mix of royal and communist influences, perfectly reflecting the city’s complicated past. Next on our agenda is another hidden gem in a historical location with a great atmosphere that you’re sure to love. Here, we shall continue with our stories and local beer exploration as we taste one of the oldest beer brands in Romania. On route, you will discover intriguing sights, such as the former National Theatre of Bucharest, the former Headquarters of the Communist Party, one of the oldest churches in Bucharest, Kretzulescu Church, and the University Square with its superb late 19th-century architecture. Our last stop will vary between cold and hot seasons. With so many good options it's hard to choose even for us. Either a famous spot for a Transylvanian beer or a truly hidden gem from Old Town or even the very own beer garden operated by the most popular craft beer brand in Bucharest. And we haven't forgotten about food either. We'll make sure to add some solid nourishment for best pairing with our beer selections. Our tour ends here but before you go, don’t forget to ask your local guide for tips on what else to see, do and eat during your stay.
