Limassol Beer Festival is going to be held in Limassol again (third time if I am not mistaken) next weekend (July 29-31, 2005). Posters are hanging all over the city. I don’t know for sure, but I doubt that the program will be any different from the previoius years – lots of expensive beer and pop music. It’s not one of those events that I would choose to attend, but in case you enjoy these sort of things, here is your chance.
Ok, guys, you gonna love this! I have totally accidentally found the first BEER SHOP in Cyprus! Not only that – it is in Limassol too! Is there still anyone out there who thinks that Limassol is not totally the best city in Cyprus? I guess not…
Anyway, the shop is totally cool. I am writing this post in hope that they will have enough business to stay alive for years to come. There is a great variety of beers in the shop. And I mean a really great variety. They have cans, bottles, and drafts from Cyprus, Greece, Germany, Belgium, Holland, UK, India, and some other countries. I couldn’t count all the brands and kinds of beer that they have, but I am sure they offer well over 40 products.
Additionally, you can buy anything related to beer – glasses, pints, mugs, and tankarts. Nuts and other finger food. Accessories. Gift packages. I can’teven name everything they have.
While in the shop, you can ask for assistance from the two guys who work there (and look like they own the place). There is also a printed guide into different kinds of beer that they have. Business cards and printed bookmarklet can be taken out too.
The shop has opened about one and a half month ago, so they didn’t manage to create a website just yet. But they booked the domain already (at least it’s printed on the business cards) – www.AllAboutBeer.net.
Here is all the information from the business card (I don’t have a scanner):

Finding the shop is very easy. It is next to Ermes Appolo (ex-Woolworth). If you will turn towards Ermes from the Makariou III Avenue and look to your left across the Ermes parking, you will see the All About Beer shop on the parallel street (perpendicular to Makariou III avenue, next to Ermes parking space). Give them a call if you get lost, but it is really easy to find.
Now, if you will excuse me, I’m going to enjoy a bottle of Kwak…
Beer is praised by way too many people. Everyone does it in his or her own way. Beer Haiku is the site, which collects praises of beer in the haiku poem format. Some are good, others average, yet another others don’t even look like haiku. But, hey, I am all of beer praising anyway.
