The oldest brewery in Poland

Beer has been brewed in Lwówek Śląski since the year 1209. To this day it is made in accordance with traditional recipes, which is why it is regarded as one of the tastiest beers in Poland. Lwówek Śląski was granted city rights and the privilege of brewing beer in 1209 from Henry I the Bearded. In accordance with the law, the city had a monopoly on selling its drink within a radius of one mile, which led to disputes with noble breweries in other cities. In 1580, the Lutheran Order of Saint John, a protestant knighthood, launched their brewery here. Legend states that once a monk drowned in the vat and the brewed beer at that time was extremely delicious. Consumers began to insist that always "a monk would be added" to the beer.
