I`m still looking for the Black Boss

You might have to ask the liquor store to check with their distributer.

Just back from a month in Krakow. Okocim is definitely my favorite beer there. Trust me, I drank a lot of beer while there.

Looking for the name of a POLISH beer? Who's label on the bottle reacts to cold and turns blue like Coors??? I was informed that it was seen/sold at the National Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa's festival in Sept. Any help would be appreciated.

Think that's Zywiec - certainly has a label (or part of) which reacts to the cold.

Zywiec quality has gone downhill. Zywiec Porter is still good tho. Lezajsk, Staropolskie and warka I do like. Tyskie and EB? No thanks.

Hooray for Zywiec :-D

Not only do I like the taste but I have very happy memories linked to it from my first time in Poland and a Polish woman I met over there. (and no it is not sex !)

Harnas Piast both OK
Does anyone know what happened to Okocim Zagloba?
I haven’t seen it for a while in a store, so I asked manager. He said that it’s not produced anymore.
Is that true?

If you are in the UK you can usually find piwo po Polsku for around 99p ! :-D

Well atleast you can here in Preston.

Drink well and

I buy some Polish beer once a while whenever I get a chance. I bought the EB beer once and I thought that it's going to be a Polish bitter (usually EB stands for Extra Bitter, ESB -Extra Special Bitter and so on). To my surprise it turned out to be a typical Polish lager (nothing wrong with that). Usually Polish beers are very similar to one another - rather heavy in taste, very hoppy, high alcohol. I never heard of Polish ale, wheat beer, etc with the exception of porter - Okocim makes a fine porter.

I think that Polish beer (and vodka) could sell well around the world but they need to market the brands, and I believe rename them. The current names are impossible to pronounce or remember to an English speaker. Okocim, Zubrowe, Wyborowa - no one can enunciate it. I thought that a good effort in this direction was the Belvedere and the Chopin Vodka.

PS. Whenever we go out to a Polish restaurant my wife always orders the "O.K. Beer" (Okocim) - the only one she can pronounce :)

Zywiec!

My boyfriend always laughs when he sees them in the recycling bin. They are the only beers of his that I steal.

Also they still sell Okocim Zagloba in Greenpoint in New York City. I just saw it last weekend. Hopefully it's not just old stock ;)

Zywies is just ok. It has to be cold and finnished fast. I tend to agree with you Foreigner as far as skunkiness goes. Heinekin has the same effect on me.

I prefer Bosman out of all the PL beers and Black Boss as my favorite PL porter

de gustibus non es disputandum. The best beer I ever drank in Poland is Carlsberg and Corona

What region would i have the most success in finding these?

I refuse to go to any tesco so that's out, but i'm really keen on trying these that you mentioned.
