Quick poll for the Beer drinkers:
« on: July 22, 2016, 05:33:10 PM »
What is your favourite Corfu Beer?:

corfub by Andy Davies, on Flickr

  • Red Ale Special
  • Dark Ale Bitter
  • Amorosa Weisse
  • Contessa IPA
  • Royal Ionian Pilsner
  • Ionian EPOS
  • Ionian Gold
  • 1842 Ginger Beer

I think I tried the Red and the Dark Ale last year, in Agios Georgios, but I'd really like to try the Weisse...

@rilo57 I'm a fan of Belgian beer myself, La Chouffe, Chimay, Karmeliet and of course not forgetting San Stefanus http://www.st-stefanus.com/ (surely that last one should be stocked in San Stefanos)  :)

@johny rebel - Will give it a go

Ionian Gold for us both, with honorable mentions to the Real Ale and Ginger Beer.

Rilo, have you found "Dark Sister"by the Brussels Beer Project, or any of the beers by the Viven Brewery?

As far as the Ionian Brewery goes by favourite is probably the Contessa IPA. But why they don't add a really hoppy, West Coast style IPA is beyond me.

Dark sister dosent ring a bell cambridge.and regards the brewery not heard of it..but there are so many small independant brewerys around ans so many only available locally difficult to track them down..would be a good chalange to sample them all though...but would need a huge glass cabinet as each beer has its individual glass and at over 1100 beers to choose ....yammas...

@rilo57 Yes, right beer with the right glass makes all the difference.  I have to make do with 4, Trappistes Rochefort, Chimay, Chouffe and Leffe.  Examples of the first 3 follow, but trying to find somewhere safe to store them is a challenge:
