Making better beer
I moved to Poland in 2010 and found myself living in a country where the beer market was dominated by mass-produced lagers. This was not a good situation because I wanted to drink ‘real ale’. Real ale is full of micro-nutrients and is the freshest form of craft beer.
I was faced with 2 options; to leave Poland, or produce beer myself. I opted for the latter. Why?
Real ale is important because I care about what my body consumes. It wasn’t just a case of wanting to drink beer that tastes amazing. I also wanted to drink something made from natural ingredients (without any chemicals or artificial preservatives) with a higher nutritional value.
What I wanted wasn’t available, so I needed to find my own solution for a healthier beer to drink. But rather than just produce beer at home for myself, I thought why not brew a lot more for other people to enjoy?
The Reason ‘Why’
But there were a number of challenges. I knew nothing about starting a business in Poland. I couldn’t speak the language. I had no knowledge of local regulations. I had no way of knowing if the beer that I loved would be popular. But there had to be a way and it did not take me long to meet amazing people who felt the same as me.
We started an adventure together and became brewing pioneers, introducing the first real ale to Poland. We had taken a different path. Nobody in Poland had produced traditional real ale before. From day one, our customers also understood why we were here. To make hand-crafted, natural real ales.
We had a clear and simple purpose – to make better beer, without compromise.
