Romanian Beer Guide: The 5 beers that you need to try

When I saw the number of options of beers in groceries, supermarkets, bars, and restaurants, I was really overwhelmed. This country has at least thirty different kinds of beers to choose from! And you can't even fathom how big the other beers are. I saw some plastic bottles as huge as three liters. You can clearly see how much Romanians love their beer.
