THE TEAM BEHIND THE MAGIC

Kjetil Jikiun

BREWMASTER

Kjetil Jikiun

Kjetil Jikiun started his career as an airline pilot in Scandinavian Airlines. In the 1990s he got introduced to craft beer via his many flights to the USA. In 2002 he founded Nøgne Ø, Norway’s first craft brewery. His efforts in educating the Norwegian beer drinkers is respected as the most significant catalyst for the change of Norwegian beer culture. For that he is often referred to as the grandfather of Norwegian craft brewing.
Later his many flights to Japan got him in touch with sake, and in 2010 he started brewing sake with Nøgne Ø as the first in Europe.
In 2015 Kjetil resigned from Nøgne Ø, purchased a vineyard and opened Solo, a craft brewery on the island of Crete in Greece.

But his passion for starting new breweries is not over, and he is dedicated to develop Axiom to the fullest.

Nikiforos 'Niki' Fidetzis

HEAD BREWER

Nikiforos 'Niki' Fidetzis

Niki, our Head Brewer, is a chemist and he began brewing beer at home as a hobby while still a student. Fast forward a few years, and he has gone pro. After working in the Chios Microbrewery in Greece and in Berliner Berg Brauerei in Germany, brewing everything from humble pale ales to aggressive IPAs and rye whiskey barrel-aged Berliner Weisse with redcurrants, he was looking for a new challenge and decided to brew craft beer in the heart of Europe where lagers reign supreme. Still in touch with his motherland, he co-founded the Greek gypsy brewing brand Satyr Brews in 2016, which has achieved many high beer online ratings, a Ratebeer award, and collaborations with other breweries, a punk rock band, a comedy website and more unconventional stuff. He is now handling the daily operations in our brewery.
