In 2012 Tomasz Rzepnicki, a restaurateur, started the work of his life (according to his own words): a microbrewery in the heart of the Old Town in Gdańsk. The brewery is located on the Piwna Street - halfway between the Great Armory and St. Mary's church. You can hardly find a better place for a brewery house: Piwna comes from the noun 'piwo', which means 'beer' in Polish.

The design is very modern and has an industrial character. The first things you'Il see after entering the brewery are huge tanks - that's where the brewing process begins. You'll probably get the chance to watch the head brewer at work. We should tell you a little bit about Wojtek, the head brewer: he's from the younger generation of brewers and he has already won many beer contests in spite of his young age.

In the brewery you can try three kinds of beer: the child of the restaurant that has been awarded with most prizes - wheat beer (like German Weissbier), pils (a classical lager) and a seasonal beer (depending on the season and the head brewer's fantasy).

You can also enjoy cold and warm starters and main courses that are perfect along the beer - sallads, pastas, meats and fish dishes.
