First off -- many of the Polish words here are technically mis-spelled: I haven't figured out how to get all of the diacritical marks yet.
It was a balmy 12°F when I arrived at my hotel, across the street from this...
|Palace of Culture and Science|
|The View from My Window|
|Czarnkow Noteckie (unpasturized)|
The had a quite extensive menu, but I wasn't too hungry so I had some soup.
|Sour Barley Soup with sausage. Yum.|
Needed another beer so I picked one of the other taps...
|Bottle Selection at Sketch|
|Bierhalle Marcowe (Märzen)|
As I headed towards Old Town I came across the Holy Cross Church. What's a travel blog without pictures of old churches?
|Holy Cross Church|
|Krolewskie Piwo Jasne (Pale Beer)|
They had Zywiec Porter in bottles, so I ordered one. To give you the idea of the place, I had an empty glass in front of me, so the bartender just brought me the opened bottle. You've got glass, right?
|Zywiec Porter. Best beer so far.|
Walking up the same street, I came to Browarmia, another brewpub. It was dark by the time I got there so I didn't take a picture of the outside.
They had a pils, weizen, stout and a seasonal. I started with the Pils.
|Grilled Kielbasa with fries|
|Browarmia Karmazynow -- Red ale with ginger|
I though I should try the stout. I was sort of hoping for a disguised Baltic Porter but it was a dry stout, like you'd find at any American brewpub. It was quite nice -- lots of nice burnt character.
