There are times that we hear the term “craft beer”. But what does it actually mean?
The term is related to the production of beer and the techniques used. In the same time though, those words have become interwoven with good quality beer and the microbreweries. The craft beer movement started at the end of the 20th century and even though the term is vaguely defined, typically it has to do with small, independently owned breweries that use traditional, non-mechanized methods of production while paying special attention to the flavors, taste and quality of beer.
In Greece, the movement towards craft beer started at the beginning of the 2010 decade, when independent brewers started creating their brands and selling beer at their local area. Today as of 2019, there are around 60 different microbreweries in Greece and even more people brew their own beer at home for consumption.
