NISSOS in Greek means “island”. NISSOS was born in the Cyclades and is a child of the Aegean. It is happiest in the company of friends enjoying the sun’s warm caress on long summer afternoons. But it is equally at home in cool shade, against a backdrop of dazzling white-washed houses under clear blue skies.
It is inspired by human resourcefulness, nature’s bounty, exhilarating light, the gentle lapping of waves on a secluded beach, the fragrant sea breeze, the halcyon days of January and the magic of spring. And when it speaks, it speaks of companionship, tradition, generosity and hospitality.
The first Greek beer to be awarded a silver European Beer Star (2014). Edgy and refreshing, with a perfect mouthfeel, this balanced and exceptionally full-bodied Pilsner tantalizes the taste buds and leaves you wanting more. The liquid quintessence of Aegean island living and Cycladic magic… in a bottle.
NISSOS Organic All-Day Lager
Pure, crisp, clear and bright. Evoking a sense of perpetual motion, natural freshness and euphoria. Brewed with organic barley malts using classic maturation techniques. Cold fermentation creating a clean base that allows the aromas from the three different noble hops to shine through. This high quality, mild, European-style Pilsner is ideal for any occasion, day and night.
7 Beaufort, Strong Dark Pilsner
If it wasn’t for NISSOS Dark, there would have been a vicious storm in the “triangle of the winds” between Tinos, Delos and Mykonos where our brewery lives. NISSOS 7 Beaufort is a robust beer, with a very dark character and 7% alcohol, brewed with generous amounts of dark caramel malts, and naturally flavoured with three finest noble hops.
For many, the Cyclades encapsulate the essence of the Greek islands. Picturesque villages, white-washed houses nestled on a hillside overlooking an azure bay, perhaps with the odd windmill or blue-domed church thrown in for good measure… This is a landscape shaped over centuries by the real needs of daily life rather than some frivolous desire to impress. Blessed by invigorating winds, long days of warm sun and balmy evenings, in a natural setting of unspoiled consummate beauty, washed by the sparkling waters of the Aegean. Birthplace of one of the world’s great civilizations and limitless source of inspiration for artists and other creative souls.
Silver European Beer Star
In 2014, at the tender age of 15 months, NISSOS Pilsner was awarded the silver medal in the Bohemian-style Pilsner category at European Beer Star, one of the two most respected international beer competitions.
