Alternatively, go to your local Polish club and ask the barman if he can order you a box of Polish beer the next time he goes to the cash and carry.

Since my post in December my local Morrisons supermarket stock Zywiec, Tyskie and Lech. I don't need to buy boxes of beer anymore just a couple of bottles whenever I feel the need :)

Most beer is good, except American and Mexican which are bland and tasteless. However, Continental Larger as we call most countries beers are just type of beer. Larger is drank because its basically tasteless and cold, there is little difference between Larger throughout Europe. If you had a blind tasting of every bottled larger in Europe you will be very unlikely to pick Polish or any other nations brew out (some of the best German beer, possibly excepted). They are mass produced for eas of transport and shelf life.

English Beer goes from anywhere from 3% to 12% (when its called barley wine). There are 2500 different ales brewed by 500brewers in the UK. If you go into a Uk bar and order Stella, Fosters, Heiniken or any other largers you are not drinking English beer. If you order beer purely based on its alcohol strength, then you are a peasant who no right to make comment on good or bad beer anyway.

Used to like Polish beer the most until I tasted Czech beer.

There is one particular one, dlugo-something, can't remember the name.
Anyway, its great beer.

I rarely drink tho so I wouldn't exactly be a judge

If Polish beer had half the marketing money Budweiser has it would take over America in 8 minutes.

Hate to drag up a rather dead post. But I am looking to get a case of Okocim OK Beer here in the UK. Obviously most shops are going to be unlikely, but does anyone know if there are any websites that I can order a case from to be delivered here?

Not a clue, just a mate had it in his fridge at a party and it was one of the nicest beers I tasted out there. Just a shame it seems almost impossible to find here.

Cardno, take a look at this website and scroll down. I think it's the one you want. :)

Edit: Actually, it might not be the site you want but you might still find a nice beer. ;)

That's the site I used to use to get Tui and various Monteiths from New Zealand...but they don't have it sadly. They sell it in the States I have found...but that's not much use to me. I think I would be easier getting a cheap flight with Ryanair and picking up 2 cases as my luggage.

When I was working in Paignton a couple of years ago one of the off-the-track pubs served Lech and Okocim at a couple of quid cheaper than the local brew.

You can get bottles of Lech, Tyskie and Okocim in Pekhams in Glasgow. But it will cost you, then, everything does in there.

I bought a bottle of wine in Peckhams recently it was £outrageous.

You can get them in Tesco here. Although the Okocim always seems to be sold out.

I used to get my lunch out of there when I worked in Ashton Lane, but then we were all pretentious wanks.

That must have set you back a fair price.

I'm trying to think of the other Polish beer in Tesco. Not Zyweic. Actually it might not have been Tesco, it might have been the Polish shop near my house. Anyway, I can't remember the name of the beer but I know that Tesco is stocking more and I know that my local Polish shop has a bigger range.

If anyone cares. ;)

PS: Good Polish beer costs 2,5zł in a store.

sorry Matyjasz. But when you compare other beers, like women, the mediocre compare badly.

Poland for vodka. Czech for beer.

Simple as that. There are no good beers in Poland. Zilch. I have researched this for 20 years :(
