Tours and Tickets by CRETAN BREWERY SA
Overview
Our brewery is one of the few organised open breweries in Greece. Visitors can take a glimpse on the production area any time, while our restaurant is offering great variety of fresh dishes (vegetarian as well), prepared on an open-air kitchen. Our balcony is surrounded from orange and herbs scents that you only have to sit back and relax in the middle of cretan natural landscape. Check our reviews from other visitors and combine a hike or bike tour to the picturesque surroundings, or on your return from Balos, Elafonisi and Paleochora. All our beers are fresh, which means without conservatives and unpasteurised.

One of the best places in Chania ! Definitely you have to go! low price and high quality at the same time!!! 5 different kind of beer ( I adored the “ Weiss Beer Charma”) and an endless- delicious menu !! Cheese balls / stuffed sausage/ meatballs/ Cretan salad/ plateaux of different kind of meat.... etc... etc.... You won’t regret it!!!!!

We spent a good afternoon at this micro brewery. Considering the constraints of safety protocols due to Covid-19, this family owned brewery manages to make the tour informative, interesting and safe. The guide was enthusiastic and keen to explain the ethos of the owner. The brewing process was observed from viewing platforms, and afterwards the tasting took place in the outside ( but covered) cafe area. In the space of 5 years, this brewery has been carefully and conscientiously developed to be ecologically minded. There is a little souvenir shop, and a cafe, so it is worth a visit even if you don't want the tour. Of course the beer is delicious too!

Thank you for visiting Andrea, just a small correction, mostly for those looking up to reviews, the brewery does not have a cafe but a restaurant. Thank you again,
