In the spirit of the vodka thread what's your favorite beer from Poland? Mine is warka strong with zywiec being 2nd. I had a few cans of okocim palone last year and rather liked that as well. I don't know if they are still making it or not.

Bosman...the best in Poland :)
Debowa Mocne
Warka Strong

Tyskie and Zubr are ok, okocim is not too good. The Ok palone is ok though..

Don't think it's Polish.

Yeah I'm pretty sure its Czech. Strangely enough at some places I was at it was the only option on tap.

Pilzner Urquel - it's the top-notch product in Czech. I know what I am writing, I live a few kilometres from Polish-Czech boarder.

I'll second that, but I did quite like the Polish beers I tried - coming from England we dont really have that many decent beers - I think Stella is the most popular here (I know it's not English) or wife beater as it's better known.

There's lots of nice Polish beer (Tyskie and Warka Strong are especially good), but what's that Dog in the Fog stuff? I understand that it's marketed as an English beer, but I live in England and I've never heard of it.

Hmm some of my favorites come from England. Or at least the British isles. I heard good things about this Old speckled hen and picked up some yesterday. Pretty good beer.

they're bitters not lagers like Tyskie, but yes they do brew some wonderful bitters over here - I suppose they're a little bit like the dark beer in Czech but not as heavy

How come nobody mentioned "LECH PREMIUM"? I'm really disappointed.

I think Stella is the most popular here (I know it's not English) or wife beater as it's better known.

When I was in UK I saw a commercial of Stella in TV featuring polish actors. It was the one with priests on ice. Personally, I found both, the commercial and the beer not very good. :)

i don't advert was hilarious! but it was banned in ultra-catholic Poland for some strange reason.......i think that stella is very good.i also like ostravar-czech lager and san miguel-the spanish one
22 Aug 2006 #16
Tyskie! :)
22 Aug 2006 #17
the words beggers and choosers springs to mind Matyjasz like I said lagers in the uk are pretty poor, some places have started to sell Polish beer which seems to be going down a storm, the only problem is it's very strong and not sure if your average brit could really manage too many!

I didn't realise they used Polish actors for the ad - oh well you learn something new every day

I personally like Lech and Zywiec -- but there are so many kind of beers in Poland and most of them are really good. Actually I think each province has at least one "original" brand.
22 Aug 2006 #19
anybody know tatra? also pretty good. :)
22 Aug 2006 #20
Lech and Tyskie.

There are some many pale lagers in PL...EB, Okocim, Tatra Pils, Lech Pils etc......

anybody know tatra?

Yes. Not a bad beer at all.

If you like malt liquor. I just tried £omza ML last night. It was probably one of the best malt liquors I've tasted.

I still think that Bosman (Szczecin) on tap is the best in PL

I saw it with our actor Zamachowski- quite weird advert.

sorry.i spoke to someone and he had said that that adv wasn't banned but bosses of the company which brew stella decided not to show it in Poland cos it would be to "dangerous" for the product(for obvious reasons).i do apologise

One thing I can't understand is how some poles drink beer warm or hot. Two words that go great together are "Cold Beer".

I am surprised it is quite popular beer in general.

Very popular. And most of it is strong.

How is EB? It's one of the few that I've never tasted.

Well, I think EB used to be one of the most famous Polish beers back in the 90-ties -- mostly because (young) Polish people could see a professional EB commercial on MTV. Now I'm not sure if that's so popular, but I think it tastes pretty good.
