What is your favorite Polish beer??? Posted by Kasia on Jan 30, 2020 in Alcohol, Culture
We all know that Poland is known for its vodka, but how about a beer? Poland is also known for its craft beers, and when you’re out there roaming around in Poland’s cities on a hot day, a cold beer is all you need to quench your thirst and take away the exhaustion!
Both my husband and my mother are fans of Polish beer! Me too, I love red wine, but definitely enjoy a good cold beer on a hot day!
I will start with my husband’s favorite…He tried quite few different ones any time we visited Poland, but his favorite one so far is Lech!
It is a light lager beer. This one is another refreshing brew from the lands of Poland. Best enjoyed when chilled strongly, and it is the best refreshing option because of its high levels of carbonation.
With 5% ABV, the Lech Premium is a great companion whenever you need refreshment or when you’re enjoying with friends. The beer is made of water, hop, extracts of hop cones, and barley malts. With all the ingredients and perfect brewing process, the beer gives a strong taste and great aromas.
Another one of Michael’s (my husband) favorites is Żywiec!
Żywiec Beer has a unique front label with the Dancing Couple. The Żywiec logo includes all of the most important historical symbols of the brewery. The Kraków dancing couple holds a coat of arms adorned with the crown. There are three Spruce trees and the year 1856 on the coat of arms. The name Żywiec is placed on the red sash with the golden trimming in the lower part of the mark. The Żywiec logo is the most famous mark or a brand of beer in Poland and the trademark of the entire brewery.
I’m going to mention one more Polish beer…Żubr!
This beer is produced by Browar Dojlidy – another reputed and one of the oldest breweries in Poland, now acquired by Kompania Piwowarska brewery. The beer is deep golden in color with a fairly floral aroma. The beer has a classic pilsner taste, and there is hardly any competition that beats the taste and aroma of this beer.
The taste includes tinges of caramel malts and a little bit of hops. It has 6% ABV and is a light beer, perfect for someone who just wants to enjoy a relaxing evening with friends or family. Definitely one of my favorites.
It gives a very balanced, light, and malty aftertaste and is one of the best brews from the lands of Poland.
All these beers together come as a perfect list of the best Polish beer brands and have their unique qualities to help you enjoy your drinks at the next level!
