Visited twice, located very centrally Taproom 27 right about the only expat craft beer bar in Moldavia probably. Downside it does get some of the worst people imagine from arrogant Brits to Dutch people literally loudly glorifying colonialism in Dutch. One cannot blame the bar or the staff for this. The staff did a professional job and they have 20 Moldavian beers on tap with a who-is-who of Moldavian craft beer scene with Litra, Labrewtory, Elvis etc. The bar is spacious comfortable, well heated, they do some snack food like nachos, prices are in line and good. One cannot really expect from a Moldavian craft beer bar. Music is dad rock, luckily the whole Paranoid record upon the second visit.

One of the number of gorgeous post looking fancy restaurant / breweries in town. This one is a bit out of the center but not by much. It does differ notably from the others in a few ways, it appears to be by far the oldest one, about 11 years old, it is the only one not bursting with people and the beer is also the worst one. Apparently they basically never have people and looking at it one almost wonders money laundering? Should be last on your list of these restaurant / breweries since the beer is the worst one.

Brewery tap room with more limited opening hours. It is some way out of town but doable not too difficultly on foot even. Looks smaller than it is when entering, warehouse brewery with a tap in the middle and chairs made of malt sacks and wood which sit interestingly but not bad. Run by a Colorado expat, he makes USA inspired beers tweaked by limits of available ingredients and local wants. Still, probably the best brewery in the country for me. Good prices, 7 beers on tap when visiting sometimes specials, some snacks but you can bring your own food as well. Very friendly owner. You can get beers to go in 1 litter PET bottles. Great stuff. Only small note, the owner was heating the place and the energy prices being what they're, still this was too cold, hard to really get a place like this warm enough.

More of a note than a review. Lumencraft is a brewery in the airport, I have seen one of their beers at another place. Pre-2nd metal detectors there is a large bar with 10 taps supposedly so you don't need a flight to visit that one. It was closed due to being there very early. Departure hall they also have a cantina style set-up got two pastries one with potato and one with baked cabbage, not heated properly but pretty good and well priced for airport food. They also had 2 beers there a fruity and hoppy lager but it was too early for me. Cool one for an airport for sure.

There seem to be multiple locations of this one but this one is located close to the Palace of Culture. 30+ taps growler station with all Romanian beers, awesome really and best anything in town. Knowledgeable and friendly server, you can try the beers before you buy them, the system does make your samples very foamy so it is almost pointless. Prices are solid and there are fridges with even more bottles and cans. No place to sit inside, there is a terrace but no umbrellas on top and it was raining, shame would have improved it even more. This is meant to be a crowler station first, 300 ml and 1 litter PET bottles available to be filled up. Great stuff. Essential to check out.

More of a slightly post restaurant / party place than anything else. Massive area, totally empty when visited with large crew getting ready, projector showing on screen stuff like Justin Timberlake and Romanian pop music. Modern, upscale wood. They have beer but it is not primary most beer available is large brands, Romanian stuff is bigger breweries. Not what expected or hopped for, not really a place to just go drinking. I had a saison from Capra Noastră and moved on. This place must get booming in the evening.
