The Hellenic Brewery of Atalanti (EZA) is a 100% Greek brewing company that started operating in Greece since 1989, as a subsidiary of the German beer group Lowenbrau, while a year later it acquired the factory in Atalanti. The very same year, the company was reconstituted and took its current name as “Hellenic Brewery of Atalanti”. A decade later, the Syrianos’ family managed to acquire the shares owned by the German group via a buyout management form and five years later the company passed to 100% Greek ownership.

During this time, Hellenic Brewery of Atalanti acquires both the vast knowledge and experience in beer, highly influenced by the know-how of German and Belgian brewers, while focusing on constant quality controls of beer production in the factory of Atalanti. At the same time, the company manages to enrich its portfolio with high quality imported beers such as Becks and Franziskaner. The year of 1996 was proved to be a prolific year for the Hellenic Brewery of Atalanti, as the company produced its first owned Greek label, PILS HELLAS. On the same wavelength, 13 years later, in 2009, the company produced its second label BERLIN, a Greek beer of unique taste and quality, with the process of maturing taking place at least 21 days. The years that followed made Hellenic Brewery of Atalanti a pioneer in draft beer, as the company implemented strong investments in order to acquire all the special equipment as well as to upgrade its assets and facilities.
