“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 Porfyra” pays homage to the splendour of the Byzantine Empire. It’s a “Limited Edition” brew drawn from Tank No13, which has been crafted with true beer lovers in mind. It is an unfiltered strong lager that’s a feast for the senses, with its perfect blend of premium hops & malt. “Vergina Porfyra – Limited Edition” is reminiscent of the Trappist beers of the Belgian school & is the perfect match for soft & fresh cheeses with a mild aromatic profile, such as Feta, Haloumi, Mozzarella & Camembert. It also pairs nicely with light chicken or beef dishes, as well as deli meat specialities. The ideal serving temperature is at 4-6°C, with a head.
