Silva. New beer, old love.

SILVA is a deeply respected, 40 years old, Transylvanian born beer brand, and one of the most iconic local brands — Romania’s first export beer, no less. Currently, the brand is the crown jewel within Heineken Romania’s portfolio. Inspirited by its heritage, SILVA embarks on a quest to reinterpret old recipes and create new ones, challenged by its will to better serve the modern consumers’ expectations — and it’s launching a collection of three different authentic local craft-quality beers: the new “Mandra Romaneasca” — a creative Romanian Pale Ale, the savory improved flavor Premium Blonde Lager — “Blonda Desavarsita”, and the famed crafted Strong Dark Lager — “Neagra Legendara”.
