Hoppy Pub is an essential place for beer lovers. A pure pub that has come to introduce the international and regional craft beer scene to Thessaloniki. Beer here is not just enjoyed, it is worshiped.
You will find it in a narrow street just a “hop” from the White Tower. It resembles a British pub with a small interior. It is strictly non-smoking, but people can sit outside and it’s ok to smoke there. Quintessentially, there’s always rock music and live football.
It’s uniqueness lies in the exquisite selection, perfect storage conditions and intimate character. The guy behind it, Giorgos, is a craft beer enthusiast and a brewer himself, who travels around the world to personally select and import beers. When he is not away at some festival, he is bartending. Don’t hesitate to pose any questions, as he appreciates curiosity and gladly engages in conversations on his favourite subject – beer. If you need advice on what to order, you will be poured a free sample.
Besides a collection of bottled beer – rare pieces as well – a continuously updated list of 12 taps appears on the blackboard. Most of them I didn’t know before, but everything I’ve tried has been first-rate. Taste the fruity IPAs, of which the aroma lingers in your palate. Complemented with a dish of cheese and sausages.
Whether you want it blond or red, lager or IPA, or if you don’t know what all these mean, hop to Hoppy Pub for an unforgettable trip to superior flavours.
