Strange Brew Athens – For curious drinkers!

"Strange Brew" in central Athens is one of the city's hottest new connoisseur beer taproom & bottleshop! But the vibe is very down-to-earth here; come see!

Are you a beer collector/connoisseur? Do you meticulously update your discoveries on Untappd? Are local breweries the spots that top your to-go list when visiting a new city? Then Strange Brew is definitely for you.

I'm no beer expert, but I do have my preferences. I'm no big fan of bitter IPAs, for example; on the other hand, ever since I tried a fresh, citrusy sour ale in Bar Hop in Toronto, I'd been trying to find something similar in Athens. My quest had been fruitless... until I discovered Strange Brew.

It was a hot night when my buddies and I decided to hit this taproom in Koukaki, so every one of the beers we tried from their selection of 10 taps and 40 bottles hit the perfect spot: from Strange Brew's tap lager (sorry, don't remember the name!) to the delicious, milky Sweet n Sour IPA Hazy Disco (which had to be brewed in Poland because of Greece's strict and kind of outdated brewing laws - ask the very likable owners/brewers for the full story!)

But at Strange Brew I finally found my precious, the sour ale I didn't know I needed: I'm talking about Vault City. I think if I had to choose one beer to drink for the rest of my life, this would be it.

I can't even count the times I've had an amazing night here. Over the years it's become my true haunt, even though I don't live so close-by anymore!
