The Leżajsk Brewery (Polish pronunciation: [ˈlɛʐajsk]) is one of Poland's oldest breweries and belongs to the Żywiec Group.

The brewery is located in the historic downtown of Leżajsk.

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 three different brews: Leżajsk Pełne, Leżajsk Chmielowe Pils, and Leżajsk Niepasteryzowane. The last of which has won several awards, including Eurobeer 1995, Polagra and Chmielaki.[citation needed] The brewery also makes Tatra Jasne Pełne and Tatra Mocne.
