Septem Microbrewery is located in Orologio in the municipality of Kimi-Aliveri on the island of Evia. It was founded by the chemist and oenologist Sophocles Panagiotou and the economist Georgios Panagiotou and began distributing its first batch of fresh unpasteurised beer in June of 2009. In Latin ‘Septem’ means seven, the number that represents creation, which inspired us to create a variety of beers, each named after a different day.
Our mission is to provide our customers with fresh, high quality products by taking advantage of the wealth of aromas and flavours in malt and hops while searching for the diverse flavours they have to offer.
Responsible for the design and production of our beers is Greek oenologist Sofocles Panagiotou. The oenologists devote their life in the search for the perfect structure and balance for their wines in order to bring out the attributes of the variety, microclimate and harvest. We apply the same “oenological” philosophy in processing the best quality malts and hops to create the distinctive aroma and flavour that characterizes Septem beers. We believe that hop is respectively the “grape” of beer and we select the best quality whole flowers of unique hop varieties from all over the world. We only produce non-pasteurized beer as we do not want to ruin and flatten the hoppy aroma and flavour of the beer with the thermal process of pasteurization.
It is well known that beer has to be consumed fresh for customers to be able to appreciate hop’s full range of aromas and flavor. Red wine or cheese should be matured, but not beer…
We believe that beer isn’t simply a refreshing summer drink but a product that offers gastronomic pleasure in the same way as a fine wine, malt whiskey and coffee…
