No Greek tragedy

Lunched at the Athenium restaurant in Barrack Street, last week. When in a Greek restaurant, I had to order the Greek Beer. There was only one on offer – Mythos – a Hellenic Lager Beer.

Now the Greeks have made their mark on the alcoholic world in a big way with Ouzo and Retsina being responsible for some of the worst hangovers known to human kind. They are also two drinks that you either love or hate. Mythos beer is far less polarising. It is a very drinkable beer. Clean, crisp and full of flavour. Not an ancient greek by any means – Mythos has only been made since 1997 – but I can’t recall seeing another Greek beer in Australia. The sales team has done a good job.
