2. Cat & Mouse

The Cat & Mouse Craft Beer Bar is somewhat of a legendary place. As the first craft beer bar to open in the trendy Kapana district of Plovdiv, the chilled and relaxed bar is a favorite among locals and visitors. It’s a great place to meet friends for a beer! Offering a nice selection of tap and bottled beer, the small bar has a great vibe and the icing on the cake is the super friendly staff and the outdoor seating area that is perfect for a cold beer in the summer!

3. Jägerhof Brewery

Jägerhof Hausbrauerei prides itself on being the first Bavarian-style brewery in Plovdiv producing beer according to Bavarian recipes. This urban micro-brewery is so much more than good beers though. It is also a gastro-pub focusing mainly on traditional Bavarian food that pairs perfectly with the fresh beers. Think wursts and potato salads! The spacious venue offers a large outdoor seating area that feels like a German summer beer garden. The size of Jägerhof makes it an ideal space for a private event. Open events and concerts are held frequently throughout the year including annual celebrations for Octoberfest!

Address: 4 Saedinenie Str., 4023 A9 – Han Asparuh, Plovdiv

4. Kamenitza Microbrewery

The Kamenitza microbrewery is a new addition to the beer scene in Plovdiv. The small brewery is built on the same location as the previous (and much larger) Kamenitza brewery. The Kamenitza micro-brewery is taking a new approach by brewing smaller batches of high-quality beer. The interior of the spacious restaurant and brewery is stylistic and the chilled vibe makes it a great place to relax with a beer, food and friends! You can host your private event at Kamenitza Microbrewery or book a tour of the brewery with the brewmaster!
