Non Alcohol Beer

Hi all,

Never been to Greece before but I hear it is beautiful. We are staying in the Hotel Eleana for a week starting this Saturday.

Anyway, my question.... My husband doesn't drink but loves non Alcohol beer and I was wondering if this is readily available in bars in Argassi.

Thanks in advance

Thanks guys,

Its one of those things I suppose unless you actually drink it you wouldn't know if its there or not. It looks like regular bottled beer but just without the alcohol. We usually go to Spanish Islands and it is available most places but having never been to Greece I didn't know. Its not a major problem if it not available just himself gets a bit sick of fizzy drinks.

Thanks again!!!

I have never noticed non alcoholic beer and I have occaisions where I have been driving so not wanted to drink. In those instances I have usually stuck to the fanta orange still - not quite as sickly as the fizzy type - or just had water.

Non alcoholic beer in Greece is the "Buckler" brand.

Buckler Beer is this: beer.gr/index.php/…37-buckler

It's *NOT* a zero alcohol beer but a very low alchohol one at 0.50%.

It is distributed by the same company that imports / distributes Heineken, Fischer, Erdinger, Carib and other.

Buckler is available for sell in larger supermarkets, while some places may have it. Not all though. I 'd say the minority, so it's an "ask and see" case.

Larger supermarkets will have it but village supermarkets will most probably not have such a variety.

Re: bars it depends. Most will not.

If you get to a larger supermarket, perhaps stocking on in may be a good idea to enjoy it at balcony - terrace or room. Not something i 'd venture exclusively for ( meaning going a whole trip to a bigger town to get that ), still if a larger supermarket happens to be on your way, get in and have a quick look + purchase some :)

Thats perfect. As I said it is not a major issue if we cannot get it but it would be nice for himself if we could.

Thank you so much for taking the time to reply!
