Located in a lifeless part of town, not a single other business of any kind nearby. The pub is surrounded by large apartment buildings, those appear to be higher class apartment buildings from the communist era for the elite and friends of the party, not the ugly lower-class communist buildings that pollute most of Bucharest. It is not a long walk from the lively old Bucharest but you won’t find anything else to do nearby Berestroika. Because of its strange location I suspect 90%+ of the pub patrons are the residents of the surrounding large apartment buildings. The pub is very large and the patio is huge. The patio by itself can probably sit 200 people. We were lucky enough to meet the “brewer” when I was sneaking around checking the equipment. I was with someone who speaks Romanian so I learn the whole story and was given an informal tour. The “brewer(s)” at Berestroika are not really brewers, more like operators. The owner bought a rather elaborate brewing kit from a company (I forget, Austrian I think) which came with instructions and recipes. If I remember correctly they also get their ingredients from the same company. The “operators” are making the beers according to the instructions. These are real beers, using real ingredients, but don’t expect any creativity, I don’t think the “operators” will ever go beyond the normal operation of their kit, I don’t think they will create beers not included in the included recipes book. That being said, the pub is kind of nice even if very large, the food is ok, the beers are rather bland but not offensive because they are fresh. I can hardly recommend this place but given that it is the only known brewpub in the entire Romania, it is still a must-visit.

This pub is situated near Union Square("Piata Unirii"). The beer selection is limited to some home brewed beers (a black stout, a red ale, and a weizen) and a Corona extra. I had the black stout and it was quite good. The other beers were unavailable at that time. The food is ok from what i’ve heard.

Brewpub just off the beaten path SW of od town Bucharest. The stray dogs lazily moved away as I entered the patio where the action was on summer days. Of the 3.4 beers in the menu promised only one was available at the time, a weizen. The food was deeply rooted in German tradition. The Red Ale and Black Stout was promised back in less than a month, until then it remains a beer destination only for the completist - even if the weizen may be one of the best Romanian beers I’ve head.
