Greek Beer Tasting Experience

Greek craft beer enthusiasts, get ready to embark on a journey of hoppy bliss with our Greek Beer Tasting Experience!

Ever wondered what happens when you combine the boldness of beer with the sophistication of Cabernet Sauvignon? At Cinque Wine & Deli, we’re all about exploring new frontiers in flavor and tradition. While wine has always been our main focus, we couldn’t resist the temptation to delve into the exciting world of greek craft beer. After all, tradition is not to be seen as a static thing belonging exclusively to the distant past, but something alive and inspiring that we all can not only learn from but also participate in. 

That’s why we’re thrilled to introduce our latest addition to our menu: a unique Cinque Experience that blends our love for wine with the vibrant rhythms of the local microbrewery scene featuring Greek, locally produced beers from small microbreweries that aren’t afraid to experiment and take risks. It’s a greek craft beer journey you won’t want to miss!

Greek beer, also known as “zythos” in Greek, is an alcoholic beverage produced from the alcoholic fermentation of barley malt, but it can also include other cereals such as wheat, rye, rice, or even sugar. Beer has been produced since ancient times and is available in many different varieties and types. Depending on the type of yeast used, we distinguish two main types of beer: Lager and Ale. References to beer brewing date back to around 4000 BCE. Today, the beer production industry is highly developed, encompassing several large companies as well as many thousands of small breweries. In Europe, the continent with the most breweries worldwide, there are currently more than 10,000 breweries in operation. 

In recent years, Greece has seen a burgeoning craft beer scene, with the rise of microbreweries across the country. From the islands of the Aegean to the rugged mountains of Macedonia and Thrace, passionate brewers are harnessing Greek ingredients and traditional brewing techniques to create a diverse range of unique and flavorful beers.

At Cinque Wine & Deli, we’re proud to showcase some of the finest examples of Greek craft beer in our new tasting experience. Each beer in our selection is crafted with care and attention to detail, using local malts and water from each region to create truly distinctive flavors.

We take great pride in presenting a carefully curated experience of 4 different types of Greek craft beer from 4 different microbreweries that exemplify the artistry and dedication of our country’s brewers. Think of them as cardinal points that can serve as a guide for further discoveries on your greek adventure. Each beer in our lineup has been meticulously crafted to offer a unique and memorable tasting experience. From a crisp pilsner to an aromatic, hoppy-ful IPA, our selection showcases the diversity and creativity of the Greek beer scene, inviting you to explore a spectrum of flavors and aromas that will tantalize your taste buds.

But the experience doesn’t stop there. To complement our exceptional beers, we’ve curated a mouthwatering charcuterie board that elevates your tasting journey to new heights. Our selection of meats is sourced from local producers who share our commitment to quality and authenticity. As you savor the exquisite flavors of our craft beers, allow the harmonious interplay of tastes and textures on our charcuterie board to enhance your tasting experience. We’ve also added an extra twist of sweet, handmade pasteli that we believe brings a bit of a crunch to the whole experience.

No potato chips this time, only the most adventurous will step forward!
