Rating as a beer destination on overall score. This is a lovely restaurant with wonderful food and is absolutely worth a visit for that alone. The interesting thing from a beer point of view is that their house beer is made for them exclusively by Solo. Come for the food, and grab the tick while you're at it.


Popped in just to confirm what I had heard, though this may have had beer in the past, it’s now just a wine store. Nothing to do with beer and no purpose to visit from a beer point of view.

Located a stone’s throw from the old harbour, it’s basically a tourist shop selling all manor of stuff. The surprise is, there’s actually a fair few local beers available, including a couple I hadn’t seen elsewhere at the time of visiting. Suffice to say I walked out happy with 3 new Crete ticks. Worth a visit, you’ll be passing by anyway.

A dive bar in a stunning location with a decent selection of beer on tap and by bottle. The terrace out front gives a great view of the old harbour and makes it a great place to stop for a beer or several. Local Chania beers are available on tap and bottle, and there's a huge selection of spirits too. Friendly and open environment though certainly a little rough around the edges.

A small beer shop with a decent selection of mostly Greek brews. There's no terrace or place to sit but it is possible to just have a beer outside on the street. Really better just for takeaway though. Worth visiting as there's certainly some local stuff you won't find elsewhere.
