The Old Fishing Shack Ale & Cider House - the best pub for beer and cider in Paphos district and quite possibly all of Cyprus - at least from what I’ve seen so far. Tucked away close to, but just far enough away from, the main tourist area, this is a gem for ale and cider enthusiasts. Paid the place a couple of visits whilst in Kato Paphos for a few days the first on my own when I spent a couple of hours chatting with the owner Athos about beer (and our respective beer bottle collections!) - he sure knows his stuff - and then as part of a small group. The ’shack’ is not particularly big, more space outside than in which for the Cypriot heat is better - but the inside is covered with beer paraphernalia so well worth a look. Athos offers a wide selection of different bottles from a multitude of countries including all the bottle producing Cypriot microbreweries, many from UK, Belgium also USA and many other European and wider world countries. Definitely a place I want to revisit, and on next visit also check out their bottle shop. Highly recommended.

Only places in Paphos where you can find such a big selection. The pub itself seems more like a oldy woldy tourist pub but the beer is worth going in. Mostly english ales. Owner is super knowledgable and friendly and also has a massive selection of more harder to find beers, just ask him.

Just returned from another visit to Paphos which just had to include another (daily!) visit to the Old Fishing Shack. The beer festival was on again (last weekend in Sept) and the range of beers had been amended/extended since our last visit. Still the same welcoming, friendly place, but Athos and Sue have added another string to their bow - they now have a shop selling a worldwide range of beers. It’s the Beer Sellar, at Anthipoohagou Georgiou Savva 34, Geroskipou, Paphos 8216. Well worth a visit - the pub AND the beer shop.
Found by chance - an oasis in the desert of Greek beer. Not a huge choice but a wide variety of European ales (including British); landlord and landlady friendly, welcoming and happy to talk beer. And they just happened to have a beerfest on when we were there, with tasters available. Loved it - anticipating next visit already.

A good beer spot in Paphos, and there aren’t too many of those. At the outer edge of Kato Paphos, the Old Fishing Shack is mostly an evening place. They’ve got a range of British and German beers - if you’ve just flown in from one of those countries you might not get excited, but spend any time in Cyprus and you’ll really appreciate having a laid-back pub in which to drink good beer.

This place is worth seeking out in Paphos. The selection is better than any other in the area. It is the only Paphos bar that has good beer, or anything other than Keo and Guinness for that matter. The owner is "Athos from Paphos," who quite passionate and cares about beer. All the beers we tried were kept well, especially those that hail from the UK. They currently only focus on bottles. They have a decent selection of English ales, Trappists and Brew Dogs. There are a handful of German beers too. Other options worth noting include Cuvee Rene Gueze and several Ola Dubhs. Prices are pretty reasonable. The atmosphere is laid back, cozy, casual, and pubby on the inside with lots of kitch and games. On the outside there are some nice patio seats and a few friendly neighborhood cats to play with. Nice unpretentious place.
