Beer Nissos Silver Medal
Greek beer Nissos won the silver European Beer Star Award in the Bohemian Pilsner category at the international competition European Beer Star that took place in Bavaria, Germany, on November 12. This is the first time that a Greek beer wins such an award.
Nissos (island in Greek) is brewed on the island of Tinos, at the Vaya village, and its flavor has won many beer drinkers in Greece.
At the competition, 1,613 beers from 42 countries from around the world competed. The evaluation was conducted by 105 judges who conducted blind test and evaluated taste, color, flavor, and overall impression.
The 17-month-old microbrewery had to compete against beer makers with hundreds of years of tradition. However, the Greek pilsner excelled against tough competitors from the Czech Republic, Germany and the U.S.
