Title: Beer we go again! Alfa, Fix or Mythos?
Post by: AndrewK on January 25, 2019, 02:38:44 AM
When I first visited Corfu I have to admit it was always a Mythos after a scorcher on the beach and that lasted a number of years.

But recently I have detected that particular beer has gone downhill and I now prefer Fix or Alfa.

Anybody else have the same opinion or am I on my own in the drinking stakes?

Prefer Alfa. Might just be me, but since they changed the tops on the Mythos bottles, it gives me a thick head, and that's only after one!
If I'm having draught, it's the local Corfu Ionian Gold for me, although we can't get this on draught in Winter.

At my age extra gas is not what I want. I've never tried Alfa or Fix.....need to get that sorted.

We also used to partake in a few Mythos. Must agree that it is now too explosive. We changed to Alfa which is really nice. However since discovering Corfu Beer a number of years ago there is no competition. Corfu Red  is the closest we have ever come to a real Scottish Heavy beer anywhere we have ever visited in Greece or her Islands. Can't wait for June at Kiki's (Rose Garden).

Good selection of replies so far.

My own preference is -

1 Fix
2 Alfa
 
........and Mythos is now unplaced as it is certainly not the same beer as it was 10-15 years ago in my humble opinion.

My hubby also prefers Ionian Gold. Mythos not really in the running anymore unless itís the only choice.

Mythos went downhill when it became part of Carlsbergs empire

Not a fan of it really

Alfa and Fix knock spots off it

Corfu Brewery Ionian Gold is my first choice, inevitably end up with Mythos at some point because itís so widely available though. Fix if buying from shop to drink on the balcony.

While we're on this (delicious) subject, does anywhere in Agios Stefanos sell German weissbier? I'm guessing there will be some German visitors, so maybe?

My hubby prefers Ionian Pilsner. Not as gassy as Mythos.

After 10 days in July, I converted from Mythos to Corfu Royal Ionian Pilsner.

However, I would suggest there are no bad ones, just better ones  :)

Same here, Fix is nice and Hoppy,originally brewed by Bavarians who had moved to Greece, Alfa is nice on draught, keeps a good head for ages. Mythos is avaege to say the least!
