Kanaal Bar is a place where both beer connoisseurs and novices feel at home. The first craft beer place in Sofia has a selection of local and international beers that amaze, awe and inspire exploration. Antonia and Lyubomir Chonos, owners of Kanaal, share more.

What is the surest way to not miss our favourite beers from Kanaal Bar during an emergency situation?

Lyubomir: The surest way is definitely to come visit us at Kanaal. However, a positive outcome of the lockdown was that we finally created a website and an online store: www.kanaal.bg. Thanks to this Kanaal became both an offline and an online experience.

Antonia: I will be happy to see our friends and customers here, sitting in the garden at a safe social distance from others and enjoying their beer. We have followed all rules by the Ministry of Health to provide a safe environment at Kanaal Bar. Clients can also come and buy beer for home, at promotional rates.

What is the Kanaal Cellar Archive? What will we find in it?

Lyubomir: When we started about 9 years ago, we began putting away, when possible, single bottles of interesting, favourite and/or rare beers. It became a personal collection. Now is the time to share it with others. Kanaal Cellar Archive includes very rare and exciting beers, some of which are not produced anymore. Generally, beer should be consumed while fresh, but certain types of beer age very well, like wine. Some of the samples in the cellar, like imperial stouts and sours, have aged for 6-8 years now.

What will be your favourite beer for the summer of 2020 and why?

Lyubomir: The summer of 2020 will be a bitter one so I think it would go well with a bitter beer. The beer I would like to have in the summer of 2020, however, will be drank with all of our friends and customers, together again, sharing the experience. This would be my favourite beer.

Antonia: Independent Bulgarian breweries make excellent things nowadays, so I would choose some of their IPA and New England IPA styles, or fruit beers. I love hoppy beers and I find them particularly good for the summer.
