Where to find Pear Cider in Kraków

I recently took a trip through the Baltic states and discovered a wonderful drink I had never experienced before - pear cider (perry, as it apparently called in Britain). Delicious!

It is available in Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania, but I have never seen it in Poland. Can anyone tell me where to find it in Kraków? Either in the stores or on tap at a local pub. Thanks!

Perry is a special pear which grows in UK which is made into Perry (not cider), the problem being it only grows in Glostershire and is hard to grown anywhere else so they cannot make enough Perry to supply out of the UK, to buy real Perry is quite a task in the UK although possible.

Pear cider is cider which is made from any pear and quite often blended with apples to bulk it up.. which is the case for Kopperberg, Pear Bulmers etc..

As for buying in in Poland... it is hard to evan get normal cider, i have never managed to find the pear variety, although i believe you can buy the alcohol free Kopperberg from Ikea so possibly you can the the alcohol variety!

Sorry i cannot be of more help

You can indeed buy that there.

Alcoholic cider is another matter altogether. There is only one pub in Warsaw which sells it and that place has to import its own supply (there are no distributors of cider in Poland).
