Description: BeerTime is a premium casual Restaurant located in the heart of "old Athens" Psiri - 3 mins walk from Monastiraki metro or train stations, 5 mins walk from Omonia or 10 mins walk from Syntagma. - housed in a listed building which was built in 1826. With a focus on using fresh local ingredients whenever possible, all menu items are handcrafted in house to provide the freshest food possible. beertime is proud to offer Athens largest selection of Greek microbrews, Bavarian monastery breweries, an extensive list of European brews and American IPA's along with an list of cocktails and spirits. Our philosophy : "Think Global, Support Local". How did we implement our philosophy? By creating a warm, authentic beer house that serves Fresh Beer (having its own glass-enclosed keg room) and offers Fresh Local Food from an open-space kitchen. Fresh Beer - The Perfect Pour -. What does this mean to you? Your beer will be served at the proper temperature to ensure all the flavors you'd miss with a standard system are there for you to enjoy from the first sip. Some quick facts about our draft system: • Our custom built keg room can house 20 kegs. • Approximately 300 litres of beer chilled at the perfect temperature 2-4 degrees. • Our draft system is designed so that the temperature of the beer is exactly the same in the keg room as it is when we pour it from our taps. • Our in house certified draft beer technician cleans each line every 2 weeks. Fresh Local Food. This philosophy lies at the heart of our menu features everything from appetizers and salads to wraps, burgers and of course our authentic Greek cuisine with mousaka, pastitzio, laxanodolmades, spanakorizo and .. and our house favourite entrées with tzatziki, taramosalata, dolmades... Come as you are! The welcoming atmosphere is created by our friendly staff, vintage architectural design and great music. beertime is the perfect place for dinner or to celebrate a special occasion. WE LOOK FORWARD TO SHARING OUR PASSION WITH YOU! and... don't miss our Happy Hour: EVERY DAY: 4:00pm - 6:00pm - 2-4-1 on all draught beer

“Great selection of Greek craft brews”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Whether you're looking for a Greek IPA, Pilsner, English style Pale Ale, or Amber Ale, this is your spot. I was happy to find a place showcasing the exciting stuff going on in Greek craft brewing in recent years, a new phenomenon. Worth noting is a 2 for 1 happy hour special on all draft beers - can't argue with that. Nice food selection too.

“Great beer selection”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

Finally, we found IPA's in Athens and they are good. This is a great beer bar that I wish we had back home. Great selection of beers, very good space and a nice bartender. If you like beer, you must stop by.

“Paradise for lovers of high quality beer”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

This place was a big surprise! For the last few years we have become beer lovers. My husband even brews his own beer. And then we find this great place close to our hotel in Athens. We did not even know Greece had micro breweries, and here we found plenty of good beer, both from Greece and arbroad. We visited Beertime again and again, and tested all the IPA beers and several other kinds. Lots of different brands and kinds of beer. A very friendly and enthusiastic owner. We suggested he traded an IPA from a Scottish brewery for another IPA from the same brewery. When we returned from Naxos 10 days later "our" beer was on the list and as an award we got two bottles of beer free of charge. We look forward to visiting this place again next year. Advice: concentrate on the Greek beer on the list. Many of them are excelent. And if you like IPA: Septem Citra is great!

“Great beer in central Athens”
Reviewed 12 June 2014 via mobile

There's a lack of good beer available in a lot of central Athens. Heineken seems to have a hold over most places. Luckily this bar counters that with some great Greek craft beers. They're reasonably priced and service is good, though can be a little slow when they are busy. Would definitely recommend if you want to try some Greek beers - or anything that's not Heineken!
