History of Bereta
Bereta Brewing is a brewery founded in 2016 in Giarmata, Romania by Adrian Biebel and Silviu Burtă. Both had previous experience as home brewers, and in 2016 they began producing as gypsy brewers at the Ground Zero facility in Bucharest. They have also made collaborations with other pioneering brewers of the Romanian craft scene such as Wicked Barrel and Hop Hooligans. Their beers are characterized by the generous use of hops, as for example in the Juicebag, awarded as the best Romanian beer of 2016 by Ratebeer.
Already in 2018 they stopped being nomads by moving to their own brewery in Giamata. They are also co-organizers of Romania's first craft beer festival, the Haze Fest, and they also have a program to help budding homebrewers, the Bereta Brewing Community.
