The "Corfu Beer Festival" is an institutional five-day festival of beer and gastronomy with free entrance. Every year a foreign country presents itself through beer, gastronomy, dance and songs. This year the festival is being held for the 4th year, from September 27 to October 1, when Corfu meets the Czech Republic, a country with a long tradition of producing beer. It will take place at Arillas, in the northwest coast of Corfu - a celebration of people and cultures by exchanging know-how, traditions and experiences, tasting flavours, singing and having fun!
More than 15,000 people are visiting the "Corfu Beer Festival" every year and it provides an exclusive opportunity to enjoy freshly brewed innovative beers from the invited Czech brewers and the local Corfu Brewery, which are produced exclusively for this festival. Culinary specialities from the kitchens of the two countries can be tasted in the Restaurants while enjoying the culture program with well-known artists and traditional bands from Greece and the Czech Republic.
In the festival area there is also an exhibition area with local and traditional products of Corfu where the producers have the opportunity to present and to sell their products to the visitors.
Furthermore, in the context of the Corfu Beer Festival has already established an educational event named "CORFOOD" with the object and purpose to connect local products and local gastronomy with the present and to introduce them to our nutrition. Scientists in the field of nutrition, prominent chefs and producers make this event reality.
Like every year the main ambassadors of the two countries are, of course, their breweries, which start the exchange of their know-how already in late August, when the Czech brewers are invited to participate in the brewing process in the premises of the Corfu Beer brewery. With pride and pleasure we welcome the representatives of four breweries from the Czech Republic, the country with the most famous beer tradition whose beer is considered to be one of the best beers in the world.
This year the festival offers a wide variety of flavors, inspired by the traditions of the two sites. We invited a well-known Czech chef, who will cook one of the most famous and traditional food of his home, Gulasch.
Music, dances and culture from the Czech Republic – The Danaj Folk Ensemble with more than 30 people show the Czech folk art and their impressive costumes.
The "Corfu Beer Festival" is a great cultural fest where people, cultures, gastronomy and products come together. With fun and without losing our traditions, we improve our world and show the love for the place we live.
