In the 15th century, none less than the legendary Polish chronicler, Jan Długosz himself, in his work Liber beneficjorum dioecesis Cracoviensis (The Book of Benefices of the Diocese of Kraków) mentions the manorial brewery in Pilica and the beer brewed there which was known at the royal court.
Yet sadly, some 100 years ago this five-century-long tradition was interrupted by the First World War.
The town itself is steeped in rich history and legends, many of which are mysterious and blood-curdling.
It was here that the third wife of Władysław Jagiełło, king of Poland, was born.
In 1748, Maria Józefa Sobieska, the wife of Konstanty Sobieski, son of the famed king of Poland Jan III Sobieski, issued a decree on the brewing of beer in Pilica. For years, she lived in the central part of the town at the castle which still stands there today, as if frozen in time.
Pilica has played its part in the history of Poland, and now its time for the Pilica Beer Revolution! After years of absence on the beer market, using our experience and knowledge gained from home brewing, we plan to place Pilica firmly in the annals of craft beer by brewing legends. #browarpilica #pilica

Amber Ale entices the palate with a serious dose of orange flavour. The Belgian yeast does its thing, adding a subtly sweet, delicately full-bodied note.
A classic bottom-fermented Pilsner (Pils) brewed to a traditional recipe. The balanced bitterness, depth of flavour and floral-herbal aroma was achieved thanks to noble Polish and Czech varieties of hops. Pleasantly thirst-quenching and refreshing.
