Guess where this ones brewed. Yes, Warka. Pronounced 'Varka'. I get the impression that this beer isn't too popular in Poland. But, I might be wrong.
Western beers are available here, but like with anything else from the wild west, they're expensive.
The girls favourite. Strong is pronounced exactly the same way in Poland as in England, believe me, that's actually unusual. 'Varka Strong' is really strong, its somewhere between 7 & 9%. Because of this its sweet. Just what the girls want.
The cheap and very popular in student halls option. If there's a student party you're bound to find Pilsner. There are 2 kinds, normal and strong. The normal is like water (British beer) and the strong, I don't know because I don't drink it. With beer so cheap out here, you might as well buy the more expensive stuff.
During the winter months, when the temperature outside is almost unbearable, beer is served hot in pubs!
This stuff is dangerous. If you drink it neat, with a rating (what the Poles call 'Promille') of 95%, you're DEAD! They prefer to live, mix it half with water and then get you to try it by telling you its Vodka. Disgusting!
A popular selection. Even though from Holland, this vodka is not much more expensive than Zubrowka. A bottle capacity of 0.5l would set you back about 25 Zlotys, that's less than £4.50!
Western wine and wine from Australia and Africa is expensive. Polish wines are made by a variety of means, including private producers for friends and family, and farmers making some money on the side.
Also very popular, especially with neat vodka. There are many varieties of shooter, with all sorts of creative names. Pop into a local Czestochowian pub and ask the barman, he'll tell you all about them. In Polish of course.
