Polish Beer

Polish beers
Two different Polish beers – Lubniewickie brewed locally in Witnica and Magnus by Browar Jagiello in Chelm-Podrowka. Beer, of course, is only drunk by those over the age of 18!

It can not be denied – beer is a very popular drink in Poland! Some of the most popular brands include; Lech, Żywiec, Tyskie and Warka; but there are also an increasing number of small scale micro breweries popping up all over Poland. In recent years cider has also begun to become a drink loved by many Poles.
