The Brewery

This is the gastronomic project of two Germans on the Ionian island of Lefkada, who want to run a small local brewery there. Marion and Jürgen have known Lefkada for almost 30 years. The love for the island started with sailing. Then they built a holiday home in the quaint mountain village of Kavalos from 1998 and finally they moved from Stuttgart to Greece in 2019 into their beer future.

The Brewery Equipment

In 2018 their Irish friend Brendan offered them a small used brewery. He is a brewer himself and represents a Chinese manufacturer. She arrived in Piraeus in November 2018, was transported to Lefkada and has been waiting for them ever since.

Search a Year

Finding a suitable location for the Microbrewery turned out to be quite difficult. Lefkada lives from tourism and free spaces are rare. 2020 started with a surprise for the young entrepreneurs: A previously unattractive location in Lazarata, a neighboring town of Kavalos, turns out to be practical and easy to rent.
