We fell in love

The beginning
We, Marion Götz and Jürgen Köhrer, had chartered a sailing boat with friends in 1994 and explored the Ionian island world. There we liked it so much that in 1998 we bought the ruins of an old stone house in the mountain village of Kavalos. With the help of Erwin Heimgartner, a Swiss architect who runs an architectural office in Lefkas, we built the very nice www.ferienhaus-in-Kavalos.de.

We want to live there
We already played with the idea of ​​brewing in Lefkada in 2010, applied for EU money and almost got it. The Greek crisis suddenly thwarted our calculations.

Dream again
We are actually too old for such a big new project. But why actually? At the beginning of 2019 we took the step and largely broke off our tents in Germany. The previous year we founded Lefkada Brewing Company I.K.E and bought a small brewery.

Suddenly restaurateur
Jürgen, also called Paul, is a model builder by nature, very talented in craftsmanship and has actually been brewing since childhood. Marion is a graphic designer and marketing woman and passionately connects people with people. We love good food and drink. Wine as well as beer. And we like to cook. We dare to change our perspective.

The Brewery: Microbrewery with beer garden
A novelty in Greece. There are many small craft beer breweries here, but none that serve their beer directly in the restaurant.

The Brewery
We found a location. The opening was in July 2021. Lazarata, Lefkada, Greece
