Visited August ’14. Seems like a small place inside, with a few tall tables and stools and also place to sit at the bar and around it. Even when crowded it won’t be a problem though, I reckon, since smoking is not allowed inside so you can smell and taste your beer just fine. Some tables outside too.
Decoration is all-beer, with even the lamps made out of bottles, bottles that have be actually opened there. Music suited me just fine, old rock and metal in a volume level where you can communicate with other people.
I’m going to become much more enthusiastic now, because I’ll talk about the selection and the service. Beers that you can’t find anywhere else in Greece, the Balkans and maybe even Italy. Beers coming straight from the breweries and not an importer, difficult to get even for more beer educated countries, the kegs kept in a fridge cell right behind the bar. Take a look at the beers available there, it’s not a lie, they were there!
Service? On a higher level. I was alone and sat at the bar, George kept me great company, talking about beers, his plans for the future and how to educate the public about craft beer. He served samples to customers who didn’t know what to order, big enough for some people to rate those beers! And always explaining what that beer was, where it’s coming from etc.
Prices are more than decent, I saw beers poured fresh from a keg, cheaper than what I buy them here bottled. And we are talking about Greece. Bottles also available for take away, so you can drink them at home and take photos without being a douche in public :P
Highest recommended place in Greece.

Best place to get a good beer in all of the Balkans. I haven’t seen beer selection like this outside of the US! Great atmosphere and very friendly staff.

This is the best place to be if you are a craft beer lover in Greece. It is a small cozy pub in the heart of Thessaloniki, easily accessible , with a very ’beerly’ decoration and pleasant music.The place offers a wide variety of bottles and 12 taps which change regurarly in order to satisfy every taste and style .There is always something new to taste and in many occasions something extremely rare for Europe standards and in very decent prices . Food variety isn’t as great as the beer’s ,however ,there are some delicious sausages and cheese to accompany your beer , in a very low price. Service is one of the place’s attractions .Very friendly and polite owner with knowledge (being himself a brewer) and love for beer . His suggestions will not leave you unsatisfied . Smoking is not alllowed indoors .A takeaway policy is offered as well , in order to enjoy some good beer in your place as well very cheaply. All in all ,either new or veteran in craft beer,you will be satisfied .

Definitely the best beer bar in Greece, probably in Europe. Very good service, the owner is a true lover of craft beer and makes the best of efforts for the pub! 12 taps, which ,with the exception of two or three, are always changing and all of them are greatly conditioned and greatly served.
The bottles in store are amazing and as far as I am concerned in the best prices on a bar, also available for take away.
The food catalogue is not big but all the dishes are delicious and very well priced. The decoration is beautiful and cozy and, thought a smoker my self, I really like the no smoking policy of the bar. Cool music always in normal levels.
About the service as I said before George is a person with true love for beer and always willing to help you find what to drink.
A must place to visit for beer lovers and beer geeks.

The best beer bar in Thessaloniki and probably in whole Europe. There is a huge selection of beers, both tapped and bottle that are cycled frequently. The owner is a brewer himself with unlimited knowledge about the beer art. He is always happy to share with you the history of each beer and even let you try it before ordering!
The place is very simply decorated, with no fancy staff which makes it beautiful in the eye. I think there are no more words to describe The Hoppy Pub, it’s just a MUST place for all the beer lovers of the world!

The beer university!!!
The best beer place in Greece and one of the best throughout Europe.Created from a person who lives for the love of beer and he is trying to pass it to his customers. George will serve you, educate you and make you desire the beer you’ll order to drink. Great big and small "jems" selection from all around the world on the taps and in the fridge. A must visit place for all beer enthusiasts.

Nothing fancy here. It’s small, basic pub deco coupled with a locally very unorthodox no-smoking indoor area. A few standing tables outside for smokers. Located on a narrow side street in the very heart of Thessaloniki.
But this is not the full story here.... for you also enter a shrine of beer love, created by (and for) a world class beer explorer and connoisseur. Taps are frequently cycled with inspirational and even exotic choices. Product is served always cold, always with delicate care. Exciting selection of bottles for take away on the back. Should you come with any questions, they will most certainly be answered, and then elevated by George, the owner and a beer ambassador extraordinaire.
The Hoppy Pub establishes herself as a true oasis of this lovely city, instrumental to mapping out a brave new path for beer lovers. Do step over the hollow men, rats and broken glass, into the dry cellar...
