**Official** Poland Thread - Zimne Pivo
« on: January 07, 2022, 12:43:38 PM »


Piwna Stopa, Poznan, PL

https://beerandbrewing.com/piwna-stopa-in-poznan-has-your-smoked-sausages-and-baltic-porters/

Craft beer focused pub in Poznan. Looks pretty badass, right? https://piwnastopa.pl/en/gallery/

Oddly they contract brew a series of foot fetish themed beers. :confused: https://piwnastopa.pl/en/our-beers/

Is there a market for this? How many craft beer loving foot fetishists can there be in Poland?

Maybe, it seems more for the gratification amusement of the owner than anything.

The place looks awesome though, if you go through the pics. I'm more curious about the current beer scene in Poland.

I know a dude in the Netherlands that's totally into all the shit beer we make fun of.  Hazy, milkshakes, kettle sour, fruit punch beers.

Globalization and social media probably help beer trends spread faster around the world. There's some of that in Belgium too with the newer breweries, maybe less of the super gimmicky stuff and more the surface trends like hazy IPA's and fruited kettle sours. I think once the novelty wears off, they'll move on to the next thing.

Drank a new-to-me Polish lager over the weekend, Žatecký Světlý Ležák.



It was pretty straightforward with some dry grassy bitterness from the local Saaz hops.

"Žatecký Světlý Ležák is brewed according to a recipe created by Tomas Lejsek, a wellknown Czech brewmaster. This recipe is distinctive because of the use of unique hops from Žatec. It gives the beer a mildly bitter taste and a well-balanced aroma.

The Żateckie hop, also called Saaz, dates back to the first half of the eleventh century. In 1261 a brewery was formed in Žatec that brewed beer valued for its "extraordinary virtues, essence and power". In the eighteenth century, there were already 30 malthouses and 4 breweries. At present, Zatecky hops are still grown only in the area of ​​Žatec on the surface of only 40 km2. This hop is recognised by beer professionals as one the best in the world. Thanks to its universal taste characteristics, it aspires to the status of the classic hops used to brew beer in Pilsen style."
