When I think of my favorite beers, or even those great by reputation, Polish beers do not usually come to mind! On our trip to Milwaukee this summer though, we had a taste of one that will change your mind. The largest Polish festival in the U.S. is held in Milwaukee each summer and I highly recommend you go. Among the festive polka bands, cultural displays, pierogi and sausage vendors you’ll find a variety of beers. The big names and other usual suspects were there, but only one Polish gem was available. And EVERYONE was drinking one! Tyskie is a smooth golden lager that’s perfect for warm summer days or frankly even cool football Sundays. The #1 in Poland has been a mystery to me until now. Strange, considering they’ve been brewing it for nearly 400 years!
Try finding this great alternative to American lagers in your local grocery store. They are a partner brewery with MolsonCoors so their distribution is increasing. I don’t know how they’re packaged in the store, but the 16 ounce tall boys were perfect for taking in a few renditions of “Roll Out The Barrel”. You can find out more at molsoncoors.com. Drink up – swietowac!!
