Ursus Breweries SA is currently a subsidiary of Asahi Breweries Europe Ltd and is one of the beer market leaders in Romania. The company is based in Bucharest and owns 3 breweries in Timisoara, Buzau and Brasov as well as a craft mini-brewery in Cluj-Napoca. The company’s history begins in 1996 when South African Breweries purchased Vulturul Buzau. A year later, South African Breweries acquired Pitber Pitesti and URSUS S.A Cluj-Napoca. In 2001, URSUS S.A bought the majority stake of Timisoreana Beer S.A. In 2004, SABMiller plc (formerly named South African Breweries) acquired the majority stake of Aurora Brasov, a company that merged in the same year with Romania Beer Company S.A. A year later, in 2005, the new name of SABMiller`s operations in Romania becomes Ursus Breweries. On 31st March 2017 Asahi completed the purchase of SABMiller’s former Central and Eastern European businesses, including Ursus Breweries.
