It's a somewhat out of the way location in the business district, near the Panathanaikos soccer stadium, behind Lyabettos hill.

The place is a very modern, clean, and multilevel restaurant, terraced down to the bar. There are brewkettles behind the bar, which has the taps of all 6 of the Craft beers. It is softly lit to emphasize the shnie of the stainless steel brewkettles, and the place seems spotlessly clean. Upstairs is an industrial type atmosphere, with exposed ductwork and a lot of metal. The lower level has tables and couches.

I had lunch there and had the Craft burger with a smoked lager. This thing was smothered in blue cheese, and came with some small fired potatoes. Very sloppy but everything was very flavorful, especially for Athens where the beer scene is sorely lacking. The food came with peppered chips. All the menu items come with a beer recommendation, which was nice. Of course, this is the only place in town (or anywhere for that matter) where you can find all the tasty Craft beers in one place.

Service was excellent, though I came at an off hour. The waitress was prompt and friendly, and everything was clean. Glassware is available for purchase on request, and cost me about 4 euro.

The price of the food is pretty high, and the draft beer is about 3 euro for a pint, but it seemed worth it. Beer to go is reasonably priced and they have growlers available. Really the only bad thing I can say about it is the noncentral location, but the quality more than made up for it all.

Overall I'd definitely recommend this place for any visitor to Athens. It's a welcome local beer oasis in an otherwise relatively beer-dry city.

Definitely the best brewery in Athens Greece! Well, ok it is the only brewery in Athens, but who would not want to go to a local brewery!

The combination of the quality of beer and food are exceptional with reasonable prices. All of the food is cooked to order while healthy sized portions which leave you full and yet not taking anything home with you.

The servers were all very nice and non-rushing even at their peak hour (which for Greece is around 10pm) A very laid back nice atmosphere with great beer and food? You can not go wrong here.

Downstairs is the bar / lounge where you can continue into the night. It is not a club mind you, but a nice upscaleish relaxing atmosphere.

This microbrewery produces about 8 styles of beer. This, for Greece, is a very huge number! The most impressing fact is that all of them are from above average to excellent! It is the only place in Athens where you can enjoy fresh beer of very good quality. You MUST try the red ale should you visit this place. The atmosphere varies depending on where you chose to sit. The ground floor is more pub than restaurant, with loud modern music. You will want to sit there when you want to mostly drink and eat something. The first floor is more restaurant than pub. That's where you sit to eat and drink. And, of course, there is also the bar... Food is very good and with great variety. I haven't sampled the entire catalogue yet, but until now everything was great!

I was happily surprised to find that this brewpub was really about the beer. Not only do they proudly display their brewing equipment but they have also produced some good brews. They have 6 total, including the Red Ale, Black Lager, Smoked Lager, Pilsner and Weisse (which they were out of). I asked for a sampler and I guess she thought I said sample (they did have the sampler platter and I would have rather have had that!) but she did bring me a small sample of each, which I thought was very nice. None were fantastic and I wasn't that impressed with the Red Ale but the Smoker Lager and the Black Lager were very good. Nice atmosohere and it looked like a good place to eat. Good service and four pints cost us about $27, so a bargain since they are on the Euro. And even though Greeks are among the heaviest smokers (and it seemed like they all did smoke and chain smoke at that) they had very good ventilation--and we were seated by the window. We walked there from the Hilton and it is pretty centrally located. This brewpub could make it in the states. Definitely worth a stop when in Athens.
