    Love Okocim. Especially the one with the old man on the label. When my son lived in Chicago we would drive into the Polish section of the city and buy cases of it!

    That is my all time favorite beer. Limited runs so when it comes out I stock up.

    @Back50
    Right now Okocim are making (I think) 5 beers:
    -standard lager (pretty ordinary)
    - the strong version (quite nice, not too sweet)
    -an ale (nice)
    - a wheat beer (more in the Belgian style, a good fruity example of this)
    - a porter (this one won a few big awards, and is decent but on the sweet side)
    They have simplified and standardised their labels and have good distribution here.
    The craft beer movement has exploded here, and Okocim is pretty regular, but an Okocim in between two heavy IPAs can be a nice break.

    My good friend, the infamous rebel poet H. Biker, thought this would be appropriate here:

    The Code
    by H. Biker

    A wise man once said:
    Now ya'all! Listen here!
    Never mock a man's wife,
    his knife.....
    Or his beer.

    I went on Beermenus.com to find the nearest retailer of any of their beers. 210 mile round trip to the other side of the Hudson:( Maybe a summer road trip.

    Ever since I went on the keto diet I've been drinking Ultra. It's surprisingly good! But then again I think any beer would be good after being without carbs for so long LOL
