All of Crete in a glass

Thursday, 29 September 2016

That is the motto of “Charma”, the new beer brought to us by Giannis Lionakis. The owner of the Cretan micro-brewery created a cool place for beer lovers. Brewery tour and beer tasting is the new must!

Whenever you take a tour in Crete, note on your remember-to list to visit the first micro-brewery in the prefecture of Chania. Staying true to the Cretan hospitality, “filoxenia”, and widely recognized Cretan tradition, Giannis Lionakis invites us to try a different experience. Quite an unusual choice for Crete since it involves beer instead of raki, but trust us, it’s worth it! Beer lovers unite and explore it!

If it is an on the spot decision, just drop by during working hours and stroll around the gardens by yourself. Taste the fresh draft beer in the spacious balcony and enjoy the scenery. If you want to learn more about the art of beer brewing, you’d better book one of the tours!

The experienced staff will reveal the secrets of the brewing art along with showing you around the facilities. Touch the pure ingredients and smell the authentic aromas. The brew house is the final stop of the tour. Beer tasting from 4 different beer samples along with Cretan breadsticks follow in the tap room.

Want some more? The open air bar is pretty cool, if you wish to stay for more beer. Did you find the ale that suits your taste? You can enjoy one more accompanied with traditional Cretan meze.
The athletic types will be thrilled to learn that you can reach the brewery by bike. Arrange a private or a group bike ride following an amazing path next to the coast. You will return really refreshed in town.
