COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
ΑΛΦΑ ΖΥθΟΣ. Traditional Greek. 100% Greek barley.

Alfa Hellenic Beer is a lager beer, with 5% alcohol content with its authentic Greek name and origin, that make it more familiar to Greeks and non-Greeks around the world. It is refreshing, easy to drink and brings to ones memory the authentic taste of Greece!

Alfas unique light gold color and rich foam is the ultimate pleasure-maker. It is made of high quality natural ingredients (water, barley malt, hops and yeast) and its packaging is distinctive, with the bottle being a more modern version of the original Alfa bottle.
