(4.1/5 based on 75 reviews on the web)
Lech Browary Wielkopolski is a big industrial brewery in Poznań, with a production capacity of 7.5 million hl. The plant is owned by Kompania Piwowarska SA.HistoryThe modern brewing plant in Poznań was built between 1975-1980. In 1984 a malthouse was added. By 1992, along with other brewers, it was part of Wielkopolskie Zakłady Piwowarsko-Słodownicze SA, but after 1992 it became the company's main production facility - Lech Browary SA. In 1993, the ministry has decided to privatize the ownership of the brewery. As a result of the tender a majority shareholder in the company was Euro Agro Centrum Poznań, owned by entrepreneur Jan Kulczyk.In 1996, the brewery was taken over by South African Breweries, which in the same year, together with Jan Kulczyk, purchased the Tyskie Brewery. Three years later, the two breweries were combined to form Kompania Piwowarska.On March 11, 2007, at the newly opened section of the brewery, the world's biggest beer mug was erected and filled with Lech Pils beer, setting a Guinness world record for the largest number of people drinking from one mug, which included 4250 liters of beer. The establishment of the record was attended by 10,625 people.On July 31, 2010, an advertisement containing words "Zimny Lech" (Cold Lech) was placed near Wawel. The controversy was that in Polish, "zimny Lech" means both cold Lech (beer), as well as cold (corpse of) Lech (Kaczyński), the former president of Poland, whose corpse was buried in Wawel on April 18, 2010. On August 2, 2010, it was announced that that advertisement was going to be removed from near Wawel, as well as from other cities.

  • HI:) Lech Breweries Wielkopolski is a very interesting and unique place. It is the only in the country where this type of attraction, where visitors can get up close look at the process of manufacture of beer. There are also demonstrations of beer tasting, where you can learn how to properly taste to choose beer has beer, depending on the food that we consume, and as far as the history of brewing in Poland. With all my heart I would recommend this place to anyone:)

  • Tour of the brewery is very interesting, both for young adults and the older ones. During the tour you can learn how is great, usually Golden liquor. Insiders also will be in a beer tasting. Tour ends with a wine tasting and a souvenir everyone gets beer opener;). In addition, you can test your knowledge about the weighing of beer and play the caps. I would recommend to all of you who like to visit new places, not only historical.
