The Warsaw Beer Festival is organized twice a year, every spring and autumn. It takes place at within the covered VIP area of the Legia Warsaw Municipal Stadium in the heart of the Polish capital. Each edition gathers around 20 000 participants for a three-day-long event. Because of the limited space, we are able to present only around 60 of the very best Polish craft breweries (neither corporations nor big market players are allowed).
But the Warsaw Beer Festival is not only about beer: we’ve prepared many other attractions such as the best Polish food-trucks, table football tournaments, pinball machines, specialized lectures, tasting sessions, discussions and truly a lot more. You can spend the whole weekend on the stadium experiencing the incredible atmosphere and meeting great people. And most people do more…
12. WARSAW BEER FESTIVAL
7-9 October 2021
Legia Warsaw Stadium
11th EDITION OF THE WARSAW BEER FESTIVAL
HOW TO GET
The Legia Warsaw Stadium is in 3 Łazienkowska Street in the Śródmieście (Downtown) district of Warsaw. It’s really easy to get here, because there are many buses coming from all parts of the city that stop in close vicinity of the stadium more…
You can find the full list of lectures, training sessions, tastings, competitions – and more! – on our website. Those that will take place in English are marked as such. The list may change slightly in the course of works on the upcoming edition of the festival.
On the Eventim.pl website, single tickets as well as passes are marked with the date when the festival starts. However, you can use them on any day of the festival. A single ticket entitles you to one entry only, with a personal pass you can enter the Festival area any number of times.
If you’re mesmerized by such large numbers of exhibitors and beers, we have a remedy – just use the help of Beer Guides. They are beer specialists who draw everyone’s attention to themselves with their special T-shirts. They are happy to advise you on what to try and how to get around at the festival.
A full list of beers and exhibitors, a map and information which beers are currently available on tap can be all found in our catalog. The system will also provide you with information about food trucks and what they serve. The breweries are putting their info just before the festival, so if you cannot find some information on the site, please be patient.
Of course! Kids (up to the age of 18) can enter for free. There is only one rule – they must not drink ANY beer for which their guardians are directly responsible. Instead of alcoholic beverages, we recommend water, lemonade and snacks. The festival is also a great opportunity to see the (usually rather inaccessible) VIP zone of the Legia Warsaw Municipal Stadium.
Unfortunately, there are no ATMs at the festival. At the majority of stands (but not all!), you can pay by card. The nearest ATM is about 50 meters from the stadium at Torwar.
There is a car park for 700 cars at the location and anyone with a valid Festival ticket can enter it. Entrance through Gate No. 1 and 2.
There is a cloakroom on the 1st floor of the VIP zone. It is free of charge and if you are nice enough, the staff will probably let you leave heavy bottles there too, so you don’t go around with them during the Festival.
Especially for you, we have prepared a relax zone filled with flippers and arcade games on the 3rd floor. Board games and caps are set up on the 2nd floor.
Festival glasses together with a "kangaroo bag", or other gadgets, can be purchased at the festival stand and from individual beer exhibitors. A small number of 0.1-liter tasting glasses and lots of Zero Waste glasses will also be available. However, please note that the number of glasses is limited. Breweries also often sell their own branded glassware. Glasses can be rinsed with water at the entrances to the grandstand. Most exhibitors also use special glass rinsers before pouring beer.
Meetings and lectures will be held on the Main Stage of the festival (2nd floor). Some of them are performed in English. The exact program can be found on our website. Moreover, there will be educational and culinary meetings, as well as very emotional discussions. Do not miss the most interesting topics! And if you have ideas for what might appear on the festival stage in the future, let us know!
We have about 2,500 chairs in the VIP area grandstand – we don't know exactly how many ;-). There are plenty of tables and chairs in the VIP area, as well as at the foodtrucks.
In addition to open lectures at the festival stage, we have prepared for you paid trainings, which will be conducted by the best specialists in the industry. Some of them are performed in English, you can find the details on the page with the program. Training rooms are located on the 1st floor, between the escalator (near the flipper zone, cloakrooms and toilets).
On Thursday at 21 (9 pm), we invite you to join us at the stands of the Legia Warsaw Municipal Stadium for a group picture!
Beer prices are set individually by the breweries. Usually, these prices are slightly lower than in Warsaw multitaps and range from PLN 9 to 15 for half a liter, excluding special beers, those aged in barrels and foreign beers. Fortunately, Polish craft beers are one of the cheapest in the world!
If you find any lost items, or you accidentally lose something yourself, go to the Festival Stand on the 2nd floor, where we have our small lost-and-found office. You can also join our lost-found Facebook group.
