This factory is 130 years old. This is where URSUS Romanian beer brand has been produced for the first time. In order to keep the tradition it has been decided to establish a small factory to produce URSUS at Keg and make a restaurant and bar where consumers can taste and watch the production. The other three factories will continue to produce URSUS as well.
