Hermann brewer (tavern keeper)

The oldest attestation of a tavern in Sibiu dates since 1555 and it refers to a place which functioned on Heltauer Gasse (now N. Bălcescu Street). In 1722 the serving of alcoholic drinks and music are banned after curfew, and in 1793 the magistrate of the town orders that every inn, tavern and coffee house should close at midnight.
