Mother of all hangovers....Polish Beer!

Why does Polish beer give you the worst hangover imaginable and leaves a very bad chemical taste in the mouth?

all alcohol can cause a hangover if you drink enough. cigarettes intensify hangovers. if you have a problem with hangovers, switch to weed, which does not cause hangovers.

weed, which does not cause hangovers

And that's just ONE reason why it should be legal everywhere!
My worst hangover came from mixing many diffrent kinds of drinks at a New Year's Eve party. The hangover lasted two days. That was the last time I got drunk. Who needs it?

there's nothing wrong with it if you accept the risks - it's definitely not harmless and can be addictive. weed isn't harmless either, but unlike alcohol, at least it hasn't ever poisoned anyone to death...and no, it does not cause hangovers but don't be a dummy and go mixing it with alcohol unless you want a bad case of the spins...

so doesn't television. so don't their in-laws. so don't a lot of things.

my mate bob

maybe Bob was cookoo to begin with. or more to the point, the cookooness was deep inside of him, and the weed just hastened its release...

entirely plausible

equally plausable is that it would never have come out if it wasnt for the bright green stinky hydroponic sh!t he puffed away on so in that case, yes, weed made him cookoo

Quoting: lazybones
Have you tried to drink it from a glass, not a tin?

Drink beer from a glass and it tastes of beer.
Drink beer from a bottle and it tastes of beer.
Drink beer from a can and it tastes of can.
Mmmm! That lovely aluminiyummy flavour!

So true ! :P

I only get hangovers from Polish beer when I am in Poland... though that's because there are usually a few vodka chasers involved.

I can drink it here in London with no hangovers at all.

Can't get Polish beer or most Polish vodka here in Georgia. I used to drink it all the time in Orlando and Chicago, but Georgia doesn't import it and cannot have it shipped here from a distributor... Alas, time for a road trip!

EB made a surprisingly good porter. Can't stand the ┼╝ywiec porter though (i just realized i don't know how to properly spell zywiec)
Zgubiony 15 | 1,554

Zywiec is correct :)

Another good porter IMO is Black Boss (Witnica)...mentioned somewhere else here.

Many polish beers are brewed by US companies, or their subsidiaries in Poland.

Since the 90's many small Polish breweries have been bought out by major companies.

SAB-Miller now brews Warka and since 1999 brews Lech

Henieken now brews Zywiec and Tyskie

The only real polish brews that I know of are mostly micro brews by U.S. standards and are hard to find, but are really tasty -

Some small polish brewers still doing it the old way are - Tatra and

Perla is still wholly owned and one of the finest quality tastiest polish brews around in my opinion.

Aren't Lech and Tyskie made by the same company (Kompania Piwowarska, of course with some foreign owners/shareholders)

Kulczyk has part of Kopania Piwowarska (30%)... but control stake isn't Polish.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jan_Kulczyk

In 1993 another company established by Kulczyk, Euro Agro Centrum, bought from the Polish government 51% of the Browary Wielkopolskie SA, one of the largest brewery companies in Poland. In 1995 South African Breweries acquired controlling stake in Kulczyk's brewery assets. Reportedly Kulczyk continues to hold minority stake in the business, now top two in Poland with over 30% market share, alongside SABMiller.

I'm a Belgian living in Poland and to me the Polish beers don't taste like beer at all, as do international brands like Carlsberg etc. Unfortunately the local supermarket doesn't leave me much choice :(

Inbev, being the largest brewery in the world, doesn't seem to have anything to say in Poland. I'm not a fan of pils beers like Stella etc., but I wouldn't mind one of those at least now :p

POLISH BEER is stronger in alcohol content.
so watch out! !

Nope, I guess that Danes brew the strongest beer with alcohol content more than 11% In Netto retail outlets occasionally is being sold Germany produced "North Pole" with 12% alcohol content. I almost forget... sake is technically a beer ;-)

The strong kind of beers sold in Poland are side effect of fiscal policy made by state. The level of excise rate is lowest for beer AFAIK.

It must be very difficult coming from Belgium to a place where most beer is sold in can form.

Alma and Piotr&Pawel have a decent international selection. Nothing special, but they've got the big Trappist beers.

I'm not much of a fan of lagers, especially the light lagers that are so popular here. I did find a diamond in the mass produced Polish rough, Zywiec makes an excellent porter that is available all over the place. Great winter beer.

Why does Polish beer give you the worst hangover imaginable and leaves a very bad chemical taste in the mouth? A friend told me it's because Poland is the only European country to add raw alcohol to the process, does anyone know if that is actually true?

Because you bought the worst and cheapest thing available? Normaly our beer is rather better then the watery p*ss they serve in the West also:

i think i actually have never felt so ill in my life that night or following day though i was not the worst for wear .. one lad nearly had an ambulance called on him as he literally comatosed himself on polish alcohol :S

You Western buggers just dont know how to behave do you? A few weeks ago we were getting home from work at night and a couple of Brits were running around the market dressed in a smile, it was bloody -10 Celsius!

The majority of what Europeans drink is watery p*ss, light lager. Hell, if you look up the definition of light lager, you see a picture of watery p*ss. tastes the same everywhere you go because it's all produced by the same couple of companies. Rest assured that the quality of the watery p*ss light lagers are pretty much the same all over Europe.

I lived here 12 years and now more or less avoid Polish beer. Lech and Okocim I don't like the taste of, Zywiec and Tyskie are more bearable but as the original poster said you have 4 and wake up feeling like you had 14. Zywiec defintiely has some chemical added to make it brew more quickly, which for me seems to have the side effect of inducing ravenous hunger the next morning.

I don't know why the Poles can't get it right - malt, hops and water - simple enough and in Germany and Czech its easily done.

There used to be much more choice - Krakus, Hevelius, Dojlidy, EB, Piast, Krolewskie etc. I don't remember any of them being great but at least it wasnt the same old same old in every pub.

Lech Pils is actually rather nice - much better than the Green label stuff, though I'm not sure if it's actually available in the whole of Poland.

Bosman isn't too bad either, though hard to find.

It's only sold in Wielkopolska. It used to be quite good back in the days, but since then the quality went down hill. All products made by Kompania piwowarska taste like bloody Carlsberg anyway. It's still better than Stella though. :)

Delphian, if you really want to try a proper beer from Wielkopolska, try Fortuna Czarne. This is where its at. :)

Welcome to the corporate world! There are still small breweries in Poland though, have no fear!

Isn't Pollock a fish?
