Zywiec is brewed in southern Poland in the city of the same name. It's history extends as far back as 1448 when beer producing privileges were granted by Przemyslaw, the Prince of Oswiecim. Zywiec, as we know it today, has been produced in Zywiec since 1856.
The Zywiec plant is one of the most modern in Poland and the beer amongst the countries' most popular.
Roger Protz (Guardian Aug 3 2002) noted "Zywiec has everything you'd expect from a genuine central European lager".
The re-assuringly high quality is Zywiec beer has made it one of the most popular beers in Poland and it is rapidly gaining an enviable reputation in export markets worldwide.
