PROTAGONIST BEER, GREECE
Founder and Head brewer of Protagonist beer is the world acclaimed Norwegian craft brewer Kjetil Jikiun, with whom the forces were joined to produce orange wine, craft beer and other craft beverages (like Gin) on the island at a time when the Greek craft beer industry was on the rise. That happy decision has led to the brewery being part of the craft beer revolution taking place in our country ever since.
Where can I find them?
Cretan craft beer is based on the island of Crete, the greatest and southernmost island of Greece. The brewery is set in a charming location, full of olive groves and vineyards in the Cretan countryside and just a few kilometres south of Heraklion city. We also contract brew in other countries around Europe.

A very special beer, this one is a tribute to Greek sweet coffee. In fact, it is much more than a beer; it is part of a concept that started in April 2006, developing step by step ever since. A total of 6,000 bottles of Protagonist were brewed, packaged and each one signed one by one by Kjetil Jikiun.
