A Sip of History
The brewing tradition in Poznań and the Wielkopolska Region encompasses a number of interesting themes, industrial architecture monuments, ingenuity, and hard work of the brewers. Only true beer enthusiasts know the details of this history and for them even the smallest souvenirs from the old breweries are worth their weight in gold. They all contributed to the creation of the “Kronika Browarów Wielkopolskich 1985 – 1995” (Wielkopolska Breweries Chronicle 1895-1995) exhibition, which presents an extensive collection of beer ads and photos of breweries and beer houses from Poznań, as well as unique documents and anecdotes. For Lech Browary Wielkopolski, the heir to the tradition of the Browar Kobylepole and the Hugger Brewery, this history is extremely important also on account of the people who created it.The legacy of the Hugger Brewery, which was brewing beer at Półwiejska Street until 1980, is being continued in the present brewery located at Szwajcarska 11. The same experts who were working there joined our brewery in 1980s and 1990s and contributed to the production the iconic Lech beer in 1982. Nowadays they give tours to the visitors, sharing their passion and knowledge about beer.
