Żubr beer (Polish: European Bison) is a Polish lager brewed by the Kompania Piwowarska SA.

Brand[edit]

Żubr has been brewed since the Dojlidy Brewery opened in 1768. The Białystok based brewery was bought by the SABMiller subsidiary Kompania Piwowarska SA in 2003. The brew contains 12.1% (by weight) of extract content and 6.0% alcohol.[1] Currently it is brewed at three Kompania Piwowarska breweries: Białystok, Poznan and Tychy.

Marketing[edit]

It is available throughout Poland, and is also available in many off-licences in the UK, due to demand for the beer from the Polish diaspora in Britain. It is currently the second most popular in beer in Poland, with 14% market control.[2] It is rare in the United States.

The cans and bottles use a distinctive green packaging. The logo prominently features a Żubr, or European Bison.
