Often referred to as the "crown jewel of Greece,” Santorini continues to be one of the most popular destinations in the country. Santorini has some of the most unique geographical characteristics of any other island in the world - it was literally formed by a series of catastrophic volcanic explosions over the course of thousands of years.


The result is a wonderland of steep cliffs, ebony volcanic rocks and mesmerizing ocean views. If you like beer, why not stop by the Donkey Brewery for a quick tour and delicious sampling of their products.


For centuries, the island has been a prominent producer of wine, but with a little entrepreneurial spirit, Donkey Brewery was born. The three brews, Yellow, Red, and Crazy, have caught the attention of local and international beer enthusiasts alike. Donkey beers have now become some of the most sought-after brews in Greece.
