Browar Łomża Brewery has been brewing since 1968. The plant was modernized in 2004 and has a capacity to brew up to 850 thousand hectolitres. Traditionally it used to brew three slightly different beers: "Kurpie", "Wyborowe" and "Export". Later came "Łomża Strong" but it was not particularly successful and has now been discontinued. In 2010 Browar Łomża came up with a new taste "miodowe" (honey). After ownership changes and due to marketing campaigns, new brands such as "Łomża niepasteryzowane" (unpasteurised) and "Łomża Export niepasteryzowane" are gaining popularity.

Other brands in Browar Łomża Brewery[edit]
