Saying that Poles love beer means saying nothing. The average citizen of Poland drinks about 98 liters of the golden drink per year. Analyzing the data on beer consumption amount in Poland, we might see this country is a leader not only in Europe but all around the world. According to the research conducted by subsidiary of GfK it became known that 63% of the adult population in Poland prefers beer to all other alcoholic beverages. Thus, beer is the favorite drink of 81% male respondents and 46% female. In addition to general love, brewing has become a possibility of increasing the attendance of Polish facilities and profits of their owners. Across the country minibreweries began to open successfully competing with their neighbors in the Czech Republic and Germany. The owners started thinking of another option, i.e. buying a turnkey brewery. As a rule, the highest number of pubs is located in the largest cities of Poland like Warsaw, Krakow, Wroclaw, etc… It becomes clear that beer lovers will be interested in visiting of such places.
