1. Re: Pub reccomendations

Hi Jaynie,

First of all, I like your question! :)

There's been a real growing trend for small/regional breweries over the last 2-3 years in Poland, and a number of pubs appeared just recently that satisfy proper beer-lovers' needs - here's a few suggestions, hopefully other members/visitors can expand this :)

* Ministertswo Browaru, Ratajczaka Street ("Ministry of Brewery"; pub with a good few taps, hundreds of bottles, and a beer shop under the same name just 2 doors away)

* Setka, Sw. Marcin Street (pub with approx. 10 round-robin taps + hundreds of bottles)

* Cooliozum, Sw. Marcin Street (sports pub with TVs, dart, table football and some gaming features - a few taps and dozens of bottles)

* Basilium, Wozna Street, just off the Old Market Square (small pub with a little sidewalk biergarten, 2 or 3 taps, but lots of bottles)

* Old School Pub by Piwomania, Plac Bernardyński (square) (smoker's pub with some rare round-robin tap beers and lots of bottles)

* Liberum Veto, Zydowska Street, near the Old Market Square (more of a student's place, i.e. cheaper, lots of bottles and some good stuff on taps)

Those above all offer a VERY wide range of traditional/regional beers and you won't find any of the big brands there - so you can't go much wrong ;) There has also been a strong push to offer some less known beers in other pubs as well, but not much of a proper selection there, so no point listing them. Just try to avoid the usual Lech, Tyskie, Zywiec, Warka, Okocim, etc.

Also, two other places worth a recommendation:

* Brovaria - an in-house brewery with a restaurant right at the Old Market Square - worth a try with a snack or a meal

* Kriek, Wielka Street, nearby the Old Market Square and Basilium listed above - as the name suggests, a pub dedicated to Belgian beer - run personally by the owner with vast knowledge and fantastic recommendation skills - well worth a try, but prepare your budget first - goes at least twice the price of Polish/Czech/Ukrainian beers in other pubs.

Na zdrowie! :)
