The definitive, no-nonsense artisanal beer pub of Greece. The brews are more than rewarding, service that is both knowledgable beerwise and very attentive to even the slightest details that will increase a customer’s enjoyment and of course a very joyful set of local characters that frequent the place. You can almost always spot the (D)odd Englishman sipping at a pint of ale away from ol’ Blighty! :) Very good atmosphere on big football nights too. Other sports typically displayed at the pub’s tv include rugby and boxing. Sometimes local rubgy teams go to the pub to celebrate or to initiate new members and that is always fun to watch. Pleasant outdoor space for smokers and a highly unyielding policy against smoking indoors. Good thing that it serves no food, except for the odd pickled egg. It is a place to do some proper western drinking, not the typically eastern food and wine thing. You can go to the local chippy (there is a very good one) after your session in the pub. Certain new american style brews from greek artisanal microbrewries can only be found on tap at this place so it is strongly recommended for tourists who intend to steer clear of the touristy path of downtown Athens and wish to see how locals live, drink etc in the suburbs. It’s about 15min away from Ag. Paraskevi metro station on foot. Guest beer on tap for a limited number of days and the occasional unplugged gig should be expected too.

Always new beers, always fresh. 21 changing taps. Breaking the greek pub lager rule. Must visit if you look for real beer.

The tap list is definitely impressive at the Local Pub. If you want to try some Greek craft beer they will have a few options, or if you want to try some of the best UK beers those are available too. The atmosphere wasn’t great, but it was inviting enough. I would have liked for the beer to be served in glasses other than just a pint or half pint. Prices aren’t cheap but considering that these are actual pints €7 is quite reasonable. The Local Pub is a journey from the center of Athens, so I could understand not coming here, especially if you have access to some of the impressive options on draft where you live. If you are just searching for Greek craft beer there are better options in the city center. But if you need a bit of Ireland in Athens with a pint of some the best UK brews out there you have found your place.

It took a while to get there from the city centre but it was absolutely worth the troubles. Extremely friendly and knowledgeable staff. Great selection of international beers. Unfortunately at the time we visited they didn’t have more than 2 new Greek beers for me. They used to have collaboration with Septem but not any more. Great food next door (Pints & Bites). A must visit if you’re in Athens and have time.

A superbly nice place. I entered just as they were opening so got to talk with the owner quite a bit, who explained a lot about the history of the bar, craft beer in Greece and the local neighborhood. A super friendly fellow. The selection is very good. Mostly concentrating on Euro-stuff with UK being on the forefront. You can also have food served from the next door beer&grub eatery, Pints & Bites. The prices are a bit steep for halves. Still a very nice place.

World class beer bar in Athens with large selection of micros from US, UK and Europe. Spent a night there during recent trip to Greece and we were not disappointed. We met the owner and tried many different beers at the bar and bought many more to take with us. 20 taps and 30-40 bottles that vary depending on what comes in. We took home beers from Founders, Siren, Westbrook and Greenflash and drank some from Beavertown (rye IPA), flying dog, Thornebridge and Anderson Valley. First class beer bar with very knowledgable owner and staff. They don’t have food but they ordered a pizza for us that was delivered and we ate at the bar. Highly recommend and will definitely visit any time in Athens.

Obviously the best beer bar in Athens. A real irish pub where you can find a lot of european and American beers on taps and bottles too. Friendly stuff with lot of knowledge can guide you to find your "own" perfect beer.
