At the beginning of last year, another city in Serbia joined Symphony's global community. In February 2020, we officially introduced ourselves to the city of Niš with an event that, according to our guests, has never been seen before in their city. However, just a month later, the world was hit hard by the global pandemic. That didn't stop us from building and expanding the Symphony community in Niš. Read on to find out what we've been up to, where we are today, and how we got here.

Focusing  on work-life balance

First things first, here are some of the exciting facts about our development center in Niš! Despite the hub's opening only a month before the global pandemic, our community moved into its home in the ‘Beverli Hils’ neighborhood in Niš on the right bank of Boulevard Mediana. Secondly, our community in Niš consisted of only a few members a year ago,  and today we are a substantial team that works with other Symphony engineers across the region on products and projects that matter. Lastly, and most importantly, we successfully brought the well-known Symphony culture, knowledge-sharing initiatives, and community strength we're known for to Niš despite working in a fully remote environment.

This experience boosted our team spirit and kept us motivated to strive for continuous learning and growth. Throughout the year, though, we didn't forget to have fun together, and we never lost focus on life-work balance. And what better way to encourage team spirit and unity than having a personalized beverage to honor our community and the wider Niš community - a reason more to gather around the table while celebrating shared successes.

You know that feeling when you finish your workday and finally sit down with the team on the terrace or in a lounge area? Well, that's precisely the feeling we wanted to capture in each bottle. We spent several months looking for the perfect beer flavor. As in everything else we do, we wanted to make the beer’s quality and taste true examples of what we are at the core - unique, refreshing, and bold. Symphony AFTRNOON is unfiltered, as real life is. A sunshine-colored brew with a gentle taste and a rich "classic beer" flavor makes Symphony AFTRNOON a perfect after-work companion. 

For us, being a part of the Symphony community is a rewarding experience that enriches our lives, fuels our growth, and allows us to live our lives to the fullest. And we wanted to share with you the closest thing to that experience. Symphony AFTRNOON is available and sold exclusively in three pubs in Niš - Berta, Nemir, and Beermingham. We cannot wait to share more exciting details with you, but for now, we invite you to visit Berta, Nemir, or Beermingham in Niš and enjoy Symphony AFTRNOON.

Cheers from the Symphony community!
