We believe that beer has a fantastic story to tell, and a rich Romanian tradition of hundreds of years. This is why the “Brewers of Romania” Association wishes to offer the consumer the experience of a joyful journey in discovering the culture of beer, in all its myriads of aspects.
With a history over one decade, the Brewers of Romania Association is a genuine symbol of the beer industry in our country.
In its 10 years of existence, the Brewers of Romania Association succeeded to impose itself locally and internationally as a common voice of its members, managing to disseminate its values to the business environment, the consumers and the state institutions.
Its current membership includes the leading brewers in Romania: BERGENBIER SA, HEINEKEN Romania, UNITED ROMANIAN BREWERIES BEREPROD, URSUS BREWERIES and MARTENS, as well as the micro-brewery CLINICA DE BERE. Together, the top five brewers account for 80% of the amount of beer consumed in Romania. The Association also includes representatives of raw material producers: SOUFFLET MALT ROMANIA and the ASSOCIATION OF HOPS PRODUCERS.
The five members of the Association provide jobs to over 4,000 people in eleven breweries, out of which two micro-breweries. The Association’s brewing facilities are located in Ploieşti, Constanța, Craiova, Miercurea Ciuc, Târgu-Mureş, Pantelimon, Timişoara, Buzău, Braşov and Galati, while the two micro-breweries are located in Cluj-Napoca and Timișoara.
In 2008, the Brewers of Romania joined the larger family of European brewers, represented by the Brewers of Europe, established in 1958 in Brussels. The current members are the national brewers’ associations from the EU member states, Norway, Switzerland and Turkey. The organization represents the interests of more than 4,000 brewers in Europe in their relation with the various international institutions and organizations. The Brewers of Europe also defend the interests of over 2 million people employed in brewing and beer selling.
Together with our partners from Brewers of Europe, we look forward to further celebrating beer as Europe’s convivial drink.
