Beer[edit]

The company claims that in 1525 Polish King Sigismund I the Old granted the town Leżajsk the exclusive right to brew beer.

Since its recent upgrades, it is estimated that the brewery has a capacity of 1.85 million hl a year. Leżajsk constitutes for 17% of Grupa Żywiec's output.[1] The company has two different brews: Leżajsk Pełne and Leżajsk Mocne beers. The brew has won several awards, including Eurobeer 1995, Polagra and Chmielaki. The brewery also makes Podkarpackie, Tatra Jasne Pełne and Tatra Mocne.
