The Leżajsk Brewery (Polish pronunciation: [ˈlɛʐajsk]) is one of Poland's oldest breweries and belongs to the Żywiec Group. Żywiec Group has five main breweries: Żywiec Brewery, Elbrewery, Leżajsk Brewery, Cieszyn Brewery and Warka Brewery, and is majority owned by the Dutch Heineken Group. The brewery is located in the historic downtown of Leżajsk.


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.


The Lezajsk's logo features a blue and red shield with a cursive L on the foreground.
