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.
