Hello,

Finding Polish beer seems to be like searching for hens teeth. Most liquor stores are amazed that Poland even makes beer. I have found 28 brands, but know there are more. Can anyone tell me where in the Philadelphia/New York area there are places that handle it and what brands do you like.

Roger Wilco in Palmyra, New Jersey just over the bridge from Philadelphia has many Polish beer brands much cheaper then other liquor stores. Also vodka spirytus.

Rozmaryn Restaurant. If in Trenton try this place. Good home cooked Polish food and the owner is a very nice lady. It is located on Olden Ave. in the Polish section.

Hevelius Kaper, Hevelius Classic

Do they still make that? Also, Ciechan is a great beer that deserves to be better known.

How far is it from the State House? I'm in West Trenton once a month.....I just wish these Polish places would write barszcz instead of the russian borscht. I hate it! I know it's silly. It's one of my many pet peeves.

New Wave Cafe
2620 E Allegheny Ave
Philadelphia, PA 19134
Port Richmond


Written by some yuppie, but the place is OK:

Though they were out of my top 2 picks--pickle soup and pork shank--they still managed to dish out major goodness. My red borscht was amazing. Even in the heat its warmth enveloped me in goodness, encouraging me to drink down more of its creamy, veggie-laden goodness. My man's pierogies--fried cheese and onion, in case you were wondering--were perfectly matched by tangy sour cream, singing a melody of beautiful harmony.

For mains, the boy got the kielbasa and onions--a simple (deep fried?) link with beautifully caramelized onions, hearty bread, and spicy mustard. Totally delicious. My pork chop was battered and fried to tender perfection and accompanied with a delightfully light, creamy cucumber salad heartily accented with fresh dill and mashed potatoes...of the Polish variety. These were simply mashed spuds. No cream. No butter. Just mashed potatoes with a bit of fresh dill. Still heavenly absent the heaviness of additions and a perfect match to the heavy pork.

Large Polish beers were a mere $4 and service was delightful. As I watched the Polish families delight in their homeland fare I felt a bit out of place--but still so welcome. After all, the lovely grandma in the back homemade my food from scratch--and at very cheap prices. And she did so with, I'm guessing, love.

Lonman:
I used this store while in California


The same company can sometimes order hard to find bottled sodas and beverages. Their products are used in vintage vending machines.

Shopper's Vineyard in New Jersey. You can order online. I've ordered a few bottles of Lech beer to Ohio, delivered by Fedex, I believe.

shoppersvineyard .com and search Lech

About a year ago I got a beer called Harnas from a friend who got it from a friend, etc. and I've been looking for it ever since.
Can anyone anywhere tell me where they sell it? I really want to try it again (In massive quantity's)
Sincerely,
Michael

you're right. in that case, just from the list above, you should at the very least avoid Harnas, Zubr, Warka, Okocim, Tatra, Piast.....I saw "Goolman" on the list? Is that Polish?
