Marston's Burton Bitter

What brands of beer to find in Bucharest? You can find this one, for instance: Marston's Burton Bitter. It comes from England. John Marston created it in 1834 when he established his brewery.

It is almost 1000 years since the beer making virtues of Burton's spring water was discovered by the Monks of Burton Abbey. The spring water does not come from the River Trent, it is rain water that has fallen on the surrounding hills, and percolated down through gypsum beds, forming an underground stream on the valley floor. It is these trace elements of gypsum (calcium sulfate) which help to make a clearer, brighter bitter.
