Fit for a King: Fix was originally brewed for the Royal Greek Court.

Our Royal Heritage

In January 1833, the Greek state had its first king appointed, Prince Frederic Othon of Wittelswach of Bavaria. The controversial young Othon brought along with him Bavarian troops, civil servants and civilians seeking a better fortune in the resurrected glorious state.

Amongst those Bavarians was Johan Ludwig Fix, who founded a small enterprise selling his home made beer at Kolonaki (today's expensive and celebrated shopping area in the heart of Athens). In 1864, his son, Charles Johan Fix, founded the Fix Brewery in Athens, coinciding with the appointment of the next king of Greece, George Christian Wilhelm Glyxbourg, from beer-loving Denmark.

This new royal court - full of beer enthusiasts - encouraged Charles's efforts, and Fix Company soon became the official purveyor to the Greek Royal Court. For one hundred years, the Bavarian love for the art and perfection of brewing created a distinct and famous brewing school that flourishes until today.

The last brew master of the Fix dynasty withdrew himself from entrepreneurial enterprises in 1983.
