This year, a revolution happened in West Crete, The bland, mass produced lager called Mythos and Alfa got competition from ice cold quality draught beer called Charma in many bars and restaurats. This is where it is made and it is well worthe a visit.
After a tasting and a guided tour, experdly led by the passionate guide Ioanna, I sat down with the owner Yannis to talk about Greek beer, his history and philosophy and his taste in beer. He has designed every screw in this modern, sustainable and functional brewery, located in his beautiful family village above Maleme.
I will come back as soon as I can, to try the special brews that you can only get on site. And hopfully to meet the lovely hosts again.
The only drawback is that you need some sort of transport to get here. I took a taxi and the driver was very happy, because he had nevere been here before.

We didn't know whether the tour and tasting was exclusive to coach trips etc, so were very pleased to get the opportunity to experience both! 6 wines tasted, bread, cheese and olives provided...MoreWe are pleased to have happy visitors to our winery. We try our best to offer quality wines and services. Hope to see you once more to our estate.

This is a great quiet beach. It's small and stony but the water is clear and perfect for swimming and snorkeling. The bar on the beach is great value and we spent the afternoon there. The staff were very friendly. Definitely worth a visit.

Very good, clean beach which stretches a long, long way but be careful during windy weather as the sea can be a bit treacherous.
