About Polish Beer

About Polish Beer
Poland has had a varied beer history. It dates back to the 13th century, but many of the country's breweries were shut down by Nazi troops in the Second World War. Today, Poland can boast to being home to several state-of-the-art breweries. Most of the beers are pale lager or pilsners, as a handful of large brewers control the market.

There has been a significant upward swing in craft brews and brewpubs in Poland during the last decade; today, Baltic Porter is a popular choice for those wishing to enjoy a specialty brew beyond the everyday offerings.

Top Picks for Poland

Stawski Classic Honey Beer
90 points
Gold color. Aromas of buttered corn husk, fresh baked baguette, and hint of chestnut honey and caramel with a supple, crisp, finely carbonated, fruity light-to-medium body and a tingling, delightful, medium-long apple butter and honey on toast, ripe pear and honeydew melon, and peppered watercress finish. A pure and tasty honey flavored ale with nice length, balance, and solid beer character underneath the fruity sweetness.
Klasyk Lager

Light gold color. Curious aromas of lemon cake, white tea, nougat, and apple butter with a glycerous, shy, spritzy, fruity light body and a smooth, candy apple and butterscotch finish. A rock solid European Lager.
