Mythos prices!
« on: June 08, 2015, 09:02:36 PM »
To all you Mythos drinkers...what's the average price for a large Mythos in Arillas these days? Also the average price of a large carafe of red wine in a restaurant?

If I remember correctly I paid €3 for 500ml Mythos last week.

Was 2.50 euros last year in some places, so 3 isn't bad concerning the better exchange rate, who cares when we are in Arillas!

Why buy Mythos when you can have the far superior Corfu Beer? You also help the local economy.

I tried the Corfu Beer last year Terry but found it too strong tasting. I'm not a massive lager/beer drinker anyway as I find it too gassy but when I do, I prefer Mythos. Although, I tried Alpha in Kassiopi a few weeks ago and that was nice also -  a bargain at €2 for 500ml :D

I am not a beer drinker, but on a hot day Corfu Beer´s Ginger Beer is very refreshing!

I am with Rachel , I was not impressed at all with the Corfu beer sold in the Horizon , sorry :-( .  And it was expensive too....
You will pay 2.50-3 euro for a Mythos .  We did find it bottled at 2 euro in perhaps the best setting too .....
EFFI'S !
It was also the only place I found Ouzo Karafaki (basically a small bottle of ouzo) on the menu and they had two brands to choose from as well , including my favourite Plomari :-)

Karl -can you remember how much the Ouzo was at Effi's? I fancy trying Effi's as never been and it sounds very authentic. Also how much were meals on average? Did you find it expensive?

Sonia P ,

Efi's is not expensive at all but the price of an Ouzo , anywhere, depends on if you have it with water or sprite,
(Sprite is a little like a lime dash in lager-Unless the UK has changed you pay extra for that dash of lime)

As with Mythos, Ouzo varies place by place and depends greatly where you drink it.
An Ouzo with water , in our local Kavaddades Café , will cost you e1.50 but at a Taverna on the Sea front could cost around 3e. It could be around e3 if you are at a "Pool Bar" complex, as that pool/sunbeds are there if you want them.

So . Ouzo . Mythos , etc , depends , I suppose if you want to sit and watch cars/coaches or take in the beach and the local chill out, or you want to take advantage of a sunbed and pool for the afternoon.

Me?? - I can pay from e2.50 to e4.50 for a bottle of Retsina depending where I go and eat, but, as I say, all this choice of drinks depend on the view . closeness to the beach , or if you like to feel pampered with a few nibbles or listen to live music etc etc.

And...... be careful if in Corfu Town as Mythos has been known to hover around 5e a bottle.

Try Efi's anyway .

Cheers
Negg

Maybe the price of a drink makes it taste not so good for some people. I would rather have less, of a quality product, than a greater quantity of an inferior product. WE all have different tastes, but I don't know anybody else who doesn't like the Corfu Beer at the Horizon. I think that the fact that local people are getting the money rather than a multi-national, brewing empire makes the beer taste better than ever. Also there isn't just the lager there are the Real Ales, Ginger Beer and this year the Wheat Beer.

Like you say Terry everyone has different tastes. My husband loves real ale in the UK and in fact is going to a real ale festival on Thursday night but yet he doesn't like the real ale in Corfu. I agree with you that it is preferable to purchase Corfu Beer but at least if people are buying Mythos or anything for that matter in Corfu then the local businesses are still making a profit from their custom.

Even the same beer can taste different depending on where you drink it. I always think that the Royal Ionian Gold tastes best at Akrotiri, but that could be due to walking up the hill to get there. On second thoughts it tastes just as good when I have driven there. This topic is making me thirsty and also making me dream of sitting at Akrotiri, sigh..... Roll on June 21st.

Pleased to hear that Mythos is still really cheap but that's not the main reason why we drink it...we both find it to be very refreshing at lunchtime with out it making us feel drowsy!. My husband also enjoys the 'dark' real ale which is brewed at the Corfu brewery but prefers to drink this in the evening (usually on the balcony early evening)
As for ouzo prices, we had an ouzo from a little place on the headland just past the Akrotori. Can't remember the name of the place but it had a swing on the front overlooking the sea...paradise! A little old Greek man served us and he was lovely!. The place is all outdoors apart from the kiosk where you purchase your drinks. The ouzo was one euro (two years ago and a good measure) His frappe was also very cheap and delicious!
He also sold ice cold Mythos in one of those ice cold glasses and I'm sure it was only 1.50 euro but I would pay triple that to sit on that swing again...so relaxing!
His toilet was immaculate too!
