Cyprus Summer Vibes at Nicosia Beer and Music Festivals!

A Beer Festival in Nicosia? With wine making in Cyprus going back nearly 6,000 years, its dominance in Mediterranean culture is so complete that it may be hard to imagine that the fermentation of the hop would get a look-in. Yet visitors staying at Nicosia city centre hotels are definitely spoilt for choice when satisfying their thirst!

Did you know… beer was only introduced to Cyprus during the late 19th century, and the first commercial brewery, ‘Leonbeer’ founded in 1937.

Exciting new beers

On nearly every street, there are a countless number of bars offering drinks and refreshments catering to every taste. From traditional Cypriot bars to latest on-trend cocktail bars, lounge bars to live music bars. The best hotels in Nicosia often offer their own exclusively stocked bar, serving residents and non-residents, alike.

In a thriving international metropolis such as Nicosia, the serving of beers and ales is definitely on the drinks menu! It’s therefore, no surprise that the  6th annual outing of the Full Pint Homebrew Festival returns to Nicosia on Saturday June 8th at Nicosia’s Municipal Gardens (17:00 – 22:00).

Cultural explorers have a splendid opportunity to discover exciting new beers from a small but thriving industry of independent Cyprus brewers offering their unique fermented blends. More than 40 different beers may be sampled from nearly two dozen 20 local homebrewers, along with ‘live’ music and food.

A beach is brought to Nicosia

An evening at the beer festival is always likely to put a Cyprus holidaymaker in the mood for a party. The Nicosia Beach Party vol.2, sponsored by Bacardi, on Sunday 9th June is sure to put out the exactly the right kind of chilled out music vibe for party-goers of all ages to enjoy a weekend with a twist.

The concept is straightforward. Nicosia has no beach so a beach is brought to Nicosia! Following the success of last year’s Nicosia Beach Party, this time a space near Ledra Street in Old Nicosia – at the Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation – will be transformed with umbrellas, deckchairs and all types of beach holiday accessories. Located in the Faneromeni area, the Square was the centre of Nicosia before Eleftheria Square took on the role in the 1970s.

Between 5.00pm and Midnight, a selection of summer hits, Greek and international music will be played by some of the island’s popular DJs, and special cocktails mixed by the beach party bartenders.
