“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 a product of classic fermentation that gives it a particularly intense & full-bodied flavour with an excellent balance of bitter & sweet characteristics & an exquisite amber colour. Its marvellous fruity aroma is reminiscent of exotic fruits, blackberries & honey, & can definitely be described as an intense ex-beer-ience! 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. “Vergina Red Amber Lager” 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!
