In May of 1997, 'Mythos' was launched - a beer bearing a Greek name, which was created in Greece. From the very first year of its creation, it made a good impression on the consumer public, the result of which was that it changed the current situation in the Greek beer market.
Produced from selected varieties of barley and hops, it is a Lager with a rich head, bright blonde color and a pleasant, refreshing taste - a guarantee of enjoyment for those who choose to drink it.
Drinking Mythos, enjoy what you consider to be 'Legendary' today; dream, travel, and create your very own 'Legend'.
Mythos challenges you to a special way of thinking that makes life more attractive and interesting.
