Stumbled into this place by chance and loved it so much we went back the next night. Staff are super friendly, beer is great, and easy location to get to. Prices are reasonable for craft beer as well. Would definitely recommend it.
The capital of Bulgaria is latching onto the great craft beer revolution that has made drinking in Europe such a fantastic place,lots of great craft beer bars here now in the capital and Crafter was one of the very best we visited.
Walking in and...I knew I would enjoy my visit here,a cool edgy interior, great decor and furnishings including a cool looking serving bar and plenty of seating options spread throughout this bar ,beer range runs to about 10 draught taps and theres a very well thought out bottled range of beers ,its just a great place to unwind and enjoy some quality beers.
My twin brother Stephen and I were here on a Saturday night, bar was busy with a great atmosphere, greeted warmly by a very pleasant member of staff, after a quick study of the beers on offer we both opted to start with an ipa each,these were served in excellent condition, we just kicked back,chilled out and took in the great bar we were in.
My ipa was really good, a rich ,full bodied ipa with a big hit of hops,very easy to drink,a beer style both myself and my brother are particularly fond of, while sipping our ipa's we already had our next beer picked out and my brother went for a stout style beer while I opted to have a pale ale style beer, again we were served two excellent brews,my pale ale was even better than my ipa,a well balanced, crisp,amber ale bursting with taste,very easy on the tongue, my brother also gave me the thumbs up to his beer.
We both really enjoyed our beers in here and although our visit was relatively fleeting for a first time visit we were totally impressed with Crafter.
Crafter is easy to locate along Hristo Belchev.
Opening hours are;
Monday to Sunday, 4pm till 11.45pm.
A wonderful craft beer bar, one I highly recommend you visit if your in the area.More

Very good place for craft beers.
It offers 10 different draft craft beers and an additional choice from the fridge.
There is also a small selection of Gin and other liquor and they have a kitchen that provides some meals.
Very kind and helpful staff...too!
We tried all 10 beers from tap and some from the fridge and were very satisfied.
Would definetly go there again!More
They don’t brew anything here, but they feature 10 craft beers on tap from Bulgaria, Italy, Norway, Poland and Austria to name a few (the night we dropped by). Very patient bartender helped us make the right choice. Prices for a 400ml pour range from...6 to 10 lev, about $4 CAD for the local taps and up to $8 for the selections from Norway. Indoor seating, and an enclosed patio out back. On a quiet street just around the corner from the noisy and crowded pedestrian mall. Will head back if time allows!More
Very nice bar! 10 taps of local and imported craft beer. They also have a short wine list which I cannot comment and a short but good whisky and other spirits selection. From the food I only tried the burgers and they were tasty. Add...to that a small garden and a big screen to watch the game and you got it - a new cool place in town.More
