Santorini Brewing Company
The Santorini Brewing Company is the only brewing company on the Greek island of Santorini and whilst on holiday to Greece last summer I stopped by the beautiful island of Santorini. I made the trek down the coast by foot to visit the brewery and sample some of their delicious brews. The company was founded by a Brit, a Serbian, a Greek and an American all with a passion for the hoppy stuff.
Dark Star Brewery
West Sussex, UK
Dark Star Brewery is based in West Sussex and was founded in 1994 by entrepreneur Peter Halliday, publican Peter Skinner, and brewer Rob Jones. The name of the brewery comes from a Grateful Dead song of the same name and originally started out in the cellar of a pub in Brighton called The Evening Star. I’ve been lucky enough to try various Dark Star beers on tap in some lovely pubs in London including such fine ales as Hophead, Dark Star Original and their American Pale Ale, which is my favourite.
