“When something is born, it starts out small & grows with love”
(Demetri Politopoulos – Founder of Macedonian Thrace Brewery)
“Macedonian Thrace Brewery” was founded in 1996, born from the love of its inspirer for Greece & the fact that in the mid-1990s, Greece no longer had a 100% genuine Greek beer. Demetri Politopoulos, as a citizen of the world, would not accept a country like Greece not to have its own identity in beer. Thus, he decided to invest all his knowledge, creativity, passion & “meraki” to create an authentic Greek brewery with the aim of producing, bottling & marketing high-quality beer from Greek barley. The “fermentation” to create the “Vergina Beer” has just begun…
“Vergina Premium Lager” was the first & remains the favourite truly Greek lager! An authentic beer brewed in accordance with the strictest production standards of the European Lager (Reinheitsgebot) following the classic fermentation method (9-10°C). It has a golden blond appearance with a clear sparkle & a characteristically light, smooth & full flavour. The hop scents from Tettnang & Hallertau coexist in perfect harmony with the Thracian blonde malt, offering the unique taste experience of “Vergina Premium Lager”. As a classic lager, it pairs well with a wide range of dishes, including grilled meat or any type of barbeque, pizza, cheeses & deli meats, & is the ideal beverage to accompany most traditional Greek recipes. The ideal serving temperature is at 2-4°C, with a head.
