Corfu Beer Festival │The most outward-looking event opens its gates

It is perhaps the most outward-looking action of an enterprise in northwestern Greece. The reason for the Corfu beer and the Corfu Beer Festival as this year meets the Czech Republic from 27th of September to 1st of October in northern Corfu and the Arila region.

This year's event is attended by 5 brewers from Europe and a number of eateries and music bands. See the program at the end

A small group of friends with Vision and Will believed in a dream. So in 2013 the first Corfu Beer Festival took place in Corfu and a dream came true. The Festival is an annual event which has already become a tradition. Its duration is five days and the entrance is free. Each year is organized with the contribution of a foreign country.
In 2013 Bavaria participated in Corfu Meets Bavaria, in 2014 UK participated in Corfu Meets UK, while in 2016 Italy participated in Corfu Meet Italy. It is not just a Beer Festival, it is a cultural and food festival too.

Many events are taking place every day of the festival. Many local producers have the opportunity to present their products and sale them. All guests can taste local cuisine, traditional dishes and buy traditional products. The festival visits overall are about 10,000 people, while 5000 of them enjoyed the festival at least twice in five days. With us are at least 200 volunteers, 350 dancers, 250 musicians, five different breweries, 20 local producers with 180 local products as well as organized several seminars.

From the participating country are involved:
• At least 5 Small - Local Brewery with innovative products.
• At least 30 musical and dance groups mainly with folkloric character.
• At least 20 local producers - traditional products which can be sold.
• 3 kitchens where chefs provide to the visitors the chance of tasting local traditional dishes.
Through entertainment can all have fun, exchange experiences and expertise and blend our cultures and our culture.

To work as a mean to increase the tourism level and the tourism industry in October in Corfu. To be a unique opportunity so new business can start at the island. To demonstrate local entrepreneurship and local production.

This year:

The Bulovky brewery
A rare family brewery concept featuring a cosy small pub with copper brew-kettles. František Richter, the owner, is a brewer and beer guru with many years of experience from Germany.

The brewery Břevnovský klášterní
The oldest monastery in the Czech Republic was founded in 993 AD in Břevnov, Bohemia and at this place the history of Czech Beer had its beginning. The original brewery remained until the 15th century, when it was heavily damaged during the Hussite wars.

The Purkmistr brewery
The building of the original brewery Justiz Purkmistr dates back to 1603 and it is located at the Plzen-Cernice Square, the origin of the famous Pilsner Urquell. In 1999 the building was purchased, with the intent of turning it into a complex which apart from the brewery includes also a hotel / restaurants and sports and relaxation units.

The brewery Hostomice pod Brdy
Since 1407 beer has been brewed in the building, which works still as a brewery today. And, as in the old days, the beer is produced in accordance with the authentic Czech tradition.
