Grekisk öl av hjärtans lust! ♥ Greek beers to one's heart's content!

(Scroll down for English)

Hade tänkt skriva ett litet inlägg om "de 3 grekiska ölsorterna" och hade då Mythos, Fix samt Alfa i tankarna... :) Ja, haha, hade verkligen ingen aning om att det finns så många grekiska öl! Dessutom är Alfa inte ett grekiskt öl, utan ett holländskt som tillverkas i Grekland liksom Heineken, Amstel m.fl ölsorter.

De flesta sorterna tillverkas av små bryggerier med hjärta och lust! Jag hoppas ni blir inspirerade till att prova dessa, i många fall, lokala ölsorter (Rethymnon, Chania, Chios, Corfu, Santorini, Tinos, Euboea, Serres, Komotini, Messenia, Piraeus, Thessaloniki...) när ni är i Grekland!

I was going to write a small post about "the 3 Greek beers" and had Mythos, Fix and Alfa in my mind...:)

Well...I really had no idea there are so many Greek beers! And Alfa is not Greek as I thought, but a Dutch beer produced in Greece as well as Heineken, Amstel and many other foreign beers.

Most of these Greek beers are high quality beers brewed in small breweries (microbreweries) with heart and soul! I hope you'll get inspired to try these, in many cases, local beers (Crete, Chios, Corfu, Tinos, Santorini, Evvia, Peloponnese....)when you are in Greece!

Oj, jag hade ingen aning om att det fanns så många grekiska ölsorter! Xarma från Chania rekommenderar förstås jag. Jag skrev om den för ett litet tag sen. Den är såååå god!
Hälsn Anita

Oj, vad jag blev sugen på en grekiksk öl, eller är det kanske en öl i Grekland jag suktar efter. Här hemma finna bara Mythos och Fix att köpa. Jag visste inte att det finns så många grekiska ölsorter.

Kul! Letade reda på ditt inlägg och här kan ni som vill läsa vad Anita skriver om Charma lager, ölen från Chania: Kretensisk öl

@Steve
Vad roligt och bra att man kan köpa både Mythos och Fix på systembolaget i Sverige! Finns det alltid eller måste man beställa?
Som sagt, Steve, jag hade inte heller en aning om att det tillverkas så många olika öl här i Grekland!

Steve said...

De ligger i beställningssortimentet så man måste ha lite framförhållning om man vill ha grekisk öl.

@Steve
Men det kan det vara värt! Verkligt goda öl! Ja hallå där hemma - ni kan alltså stödja Grekland genom att dricka god grekisk öl!!! :)
Ingen dum idé alls...
