The Latin term Septem stands for the number seven in German. The Greek brewers of Septem Bier took a liking to this term and dedicated their work to it. A different beer for every day of the week - that was the plan that friends Sofocles Panagiotou and Georgios Panagiotou put into practice in 2009. The Greek craft beer manufacturer Septem Bier has crowd favorites such as Friday's Pale Ale , 8th Day IPA , Saturday's Porter and Sunday's Honey Golden Ale . Beers that are made according to classic brewing styles and score with their simple elegance and the unusual idea behind the name. Brewing takes place on the island of Evia, which is otherwise known for its historical past. Just like the holiday paradise, Septem's products from the island have something wonderfully unconventional about them.
Hops are to beer what grapes are to wine. According to this philosophy, the men from Septem Bier create their beers just like a winemaker composes his wine. Hop varieties from Greece and around the world are carefully examined and only those hops that fit perfectly into the concept are ultimately used for the beer. In order to preserve the full hop aroma during the brewing process, the beer is not pasteurized. Panagiotou is of the opinion that beer is not just a refreshing drink for a summer visit to the cellar, but is in no way inferior to wine in terms of sophistication and complexity. A delicious menu accompanied by a variety of beers from September to match the meal? Yes, please!
Sofocles Panagiotou, co-founder of Septem Bier and founder of the motto, is a chemist and oenologist and has spent his life researching and perfecting wine. As a passionate beer drinker, he came up with the idea of applying the principles of his work to beer brewing in 2009 - a plan that has brought him great success and has already brought him numerous awards and prizes. In contrast to many craft beer brewers who start as homebrewers in their own kitchens, Sofocles Panagiotou got his business started right away. Together with his business partner and friend Georgios Panagiotou, he took every step of starting the company and in the end they had their own professional brewery. Septem Bier is a successful brewery that fits perfectly into the exclusive range of the Bierothek®.
