“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 Red Amber Lager” is an aromatic amber lager beer made with special Thracian malts. It has a particularly intense flavour & exquisite amber colour. Its fruity aroma is reminiscent of exotic fruits, blackberries & honey. It is the perfect accompaniment to strong cheeses like Greek Kefalograviera, smoked Metsovone, mature Provolone, Saint Albray, Belgian monastery cheeses & blue cheeses such as Roquefort & Gorgonzola. It also pairs well with vegetable dishes, pasta, pot roasts & game. The ideal serving temperature is at 4-6°C, with a head.
Brewed with Passion!
