The Warsaw Beer Festival was first held in 2014, the first event of its kind in Poland. It continues to bring together modern Polish craft-beer tastes and hottest trends. Today’s brewers in Poland are passionate, uncompromising and eager to challenge bland traditions to create striking, modern beers. And the Warsaw Beer Festival is the place to experience the best of the best.
Experience over 1,200 beers from top brewers driving the revolution. Meet the modern face of Poland’s vibrant beer culture and enjoy beers at forefront of taste innovation, poured from more than 500 taps. You prefere more traditional styles or revolutionary experiments? There is something for everyone.
Warsaw’s streets have been home to diverse people and cultures for over 100 years, and the city’s food scene has developed into a unique blend of tastes from around the world. The tradition continues at the Warsaw Beer Festival with 17 of the best foodtrucks offering visitors a distinct selection for every taste and pocket.
Besides exceptional beer, Warsaw Beer Festival is renowned for its variety of other entertainment experiences: lots of board games, fussball, excellent coffee, pinball and arcade machines, games tournaments, free lectures and paid tasting masterclasses. Many distinguished guests have visited Warsaw Beer Festival, including Greg Koch (Stone Brewing) and Steve Dresler (Sierra Nevada).

WFP14 Festival Glass
The Moment after we announced the new WFP14 glass, it turned out that the glass would not reach us on time. Therefore, we turned to the Rastal company, with which we regularly cooperate, with a true cry for help. After a series of quick e-mails between the graphic designer and the company’s representative, we developed a glass that we are very pleased with. We do not know yet what the new glass will be called (it depends on you), but we are sure that it will reach us on time!

Tasting glass 100 ml
We already had the tasting glass on the stem, now it’s time for the new version. We were looking for a small, thimble glass from which the beer not only looks good, but also tastes great.
Price: 25 zł
We have been looking for the perfect water bottle for a long time. We tested a few versions in terms of ease of use, appearance and quality. We decided on a model with an inner straw. The neck is wide enough to throw ice cubes inside. Since everything flows, remember to drink as much of it as possible. At the festival, we will prepare for you, together with the Waterpoint Systems, dispensers from which you will be able to refill the water bottles with plain or slightly sparkling water at will.
Price: 79 zł
The best breweries cooperate with each other to create unique beers in cooperation. We also decided to go this way. Kabak is fair trade clothing, created with responsibility for society and the planet. Together, we created multi-colored socks at the Warsaw Beer Festival. We hope you like them just as much!

Want to know what I’m drinking?
When back in 2015 we announced the new #WFP3 glass, the design sparked a lot of controversy. For some it seemed to be a craft abomination (a shaker?!), for others it was the best glass of the festival. We’ve been thinking for some time about a slight rebranding. That’s why we invited the festival logo creators Michał Cyruchin and Becia Uchata. And here’s how the end result looks like. We had considered “Ask me what I’m drinking” catchphrase a symbol of WFP and the beer revolution, because the “what are you drinking” question was the one we had been hearing the most. That’s why we want this universal glass, matching most beer styles, to be present at the festival regardless of the official glass, different with every edition.
Price: 25 zł
The WFP13 beer glass doesn’t have a name yet. The narrow bottom part makes it slender and the wavy form really harmonize with the content. Tulip-shaped bulging top is designed to accumulate the aromas. “Be like a beer that’s filling the vessel”, said a long-forgotten sage which corresponds with the saying “everything flows”. Just like the happy crowd at the Legia Stadium flows. The glass is available in two versions and we honestly have no idea which one of them you’re going to get. In this way, we want to emphasize the strength and importance of Fate and Chance, both ruling our lives much more than we would like. Only available in sets or at the festival, in a limited number of copies.

Unique, porron WBF glass
A porró is a traditional glass wine pitcher now used for ciders and sour beers as well, typical of Spain, originating in Catalonia. This invention allows everyone to drink from the same utensil without touching it with their lips. It fosters communal drinking accompanying food, though it does require some skill to ensure the wine enters one’s mouth and to keep it from spilling onto clothing. Some might say it resembles a cross between a wine bottle and a watering can. The top of the bottle is narrow and sealed off with a cork. Stemming upwards from the bottom of the pitcher is a spout that gradually tapers off to a small opening. It is shaped such that the beer inside it will have minimal contact with the air, while being ready to be used at all times. Until the mid-twentieth century it was very common in homes, but the tradition is now slowly being lost. The lack of contact with the lips allows a group of people to share the same vessel without offending their sense of hygiene.
