“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 Weiss” is recognized as one of the world’s very best in the Hefeweizen category, bringing home numerous international awards & distinctions such as Germany’s Beer Star & England’s International Brewing Award. It is truly an outstanding unfiltered beer with a rich & aromatic wheat flavour & a distinctive hazy appearance due to its special top-fermenting yeast. This top-fermentation method gives it its rich, fruity aroma with notes of clove & banana. “Vergina Weiss” balances out the more intensely flavoured semi-soft & monastic cheeses, as well as cheese-like mature Gouda, Colby or Monterey Jack, & the slightly stronger goat’s milk cheeses like Romano & Feta. It also complements seafood appetizers & white fish dishes.
