The Tychy Brewery in the town of Tychy is a very special place on the Polish brewing industry map. The golden beverage has been brewed in the Duke’s Brewery in Tychy continuously for four centuries, with great care for quality and one-of-a-kind taste.
The Tychy Brewery is much more than “Tychy’s gold” – it is also beautiful, historical architecture conveying an incredible story of the development of the factory, the modernisation of technology and the evolving beer brewing recipe. The unique story of this place is told by the 3D video showed to the trip participants as part of their visit. The tour also involves a visit to the jaw-dropping Museum and entry to the production facility, where visitors can see the everyday work of the Brewery employees. The 2-hour guided tour will end with the tasting of the 14-day old Tyskie Gronie beer known for its strong bitterness and the full taste of malt. The tasting will be held in a historic pub situated in the cellar of the former Protestant chapel.

At the end of the 19th century, the Tychy Brewery was one of the biggest beer companies in the world. This period is considered to be groundbreaking, as the factory was undergoing a beer manufacturing revolution at the time. Hans Heinrich XI von Hochberg, Prince of Pless, industrialist and aristocrat, contributed to the changes taking place at the time. It was him who transformed microbreweries into a modern factory by building a malthouse, a brewhouse, a drying room, an ice house and a mill. The Prince, as an owner of vast areas of landed properties and forests (including coal mines and cellulose plants), saw the greatest potential in the brewery, calling it the pearl among his properties.
Visitors to the Tychy Brewery can not only learn about its history, but also admire the excellent architecture. Apart from the production line and the first Brewing Museum in Poland opened in 2004, also such industrial architecture monuments as the coopery, the smokehouse, the management office or the brewhouse built in 1915 are worth a glance. The Tychy Brewery is one of the highlights of the Industrial Monuments Route and a must-see for visitors in Poland.
