Romania has a long tradition of beer brewing. The process was introduced by the Transylvanian Saxons (German colonists) some centuries ago. You still find many beers with German names, e.g. Bergenbier or Golden Brau.

I tried Romania's "King of Beers" Ursus which has been brewed since 1878 in Cluj-Napoca.
The brewery is nowadays owned by South African Breweries as a part of SABMiller.

Another beer I drank was Ciuc. It is brewed in Miercurea-Ciuc and at present the brewery belongs to Heineken Romania.

I liked both beers, maybe with slight advantages for the Ursus beer.
