There’s less than a week to go until the Poznań Beer Expo starts – plenty of time to get your tickets and travel passes. It’s really worth it.

Poznań Beer Expo 2023
Cheers to a Decade of Craft Beverages:
Join the Poznań Beer Expo’s 10th Anniversary Bash!
We have fantastic news for you! The Poznań Beer Expo celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. It’s time to mark your calendars for 24th and 25th November, as these two days will be a true celebration for all lovers of delicious drinks and unique taste sensations. About 100 exhibitors will take guests into the world of craft beverages and delectable food.
Worms and More
The Poznań Beer Expo, one of the largest events of its kind in Poland, will feature top regional craft breweries, cider mills, and this year, meaderies. They will present an array of unforgettable flavours and unique aromas. It’s the perfect opportunity to discover new brands, taste exceptional craft alcohols, and share your favourite discoveries with friends.

“As usual, the offer includes many novelties, beers and others, which will have their premiere only during the PBE”, says Grzegorz Stachurski, one of the organizers. “We expect that brewers, cider mills, and mead makers will traditionally surprise everyone, and there will be such gems as beverages brewed according to historical recipes or with unusual additions. But this is not everything! Exhibitors serving food also surprise with their menus—it’s not often you have the opportunity to try fried worms! But don’t worry, there will also be more classic flavours, because the exhibitors’ offer is very wide.”
Brew your Own Beer
“As every year, the stage will feature lectures on various liquors, and on Friday, the final gala of the Greater Poland competition will take place”, says Anna Krzesińska, PBE spokeswoman. “It is one of the largest Polish competitions for professional and home producers of beer, mead, and cider, as well as designers and creative agencies. If you dream of joining this Competition someday or just want to expand your knowledge about beer, you can learn how to easily brew beer at home at the stand of the Wielkopolska Regional Branch of the Polish Home Brewers Association.”

The PBE is an event that people associated with the craft alcohol industry, its enthusiasts, and those eager to indulge in new taste sensations simply cannot miss. Moreover, it’s accompanied by a Street Food Spot—equally crafted and delicious food from food trucks, making it a true paradise for your palate!
For Grandpa and Friends
The event will also host the Mosznowładcy team, raising awareness of men’s health issues. Here, gentlemen can undergo non-invasive, painless, and free ultrasound examinations to screen for male cancers—plus, they can do it with a beer in hand!
“The Poznań Beer Expo has been proclaiming the slogan for years: Let’s meet over beer, and this year also other drinks”, emphasizes Maria Pawlik, another organizer. “And many people celebrate the Expo in this way, inviting friends and family to join in the fun. Rightly so, because it is an event for everyone—both for those who know the world of craft inside out and for those who are just taking their first steps in it. So take your brother, mum, grandpa, or a friend from school whom you haven’t seen in years and we’ll see you in November!”
What, Where, and How Much?
Aside from indulging in exquisite drinks and food, the event promises a range of attractions and entertainment for everyone. From Beer Mile and Beer Yoga to a sports zone with brewery-inspired competitions, there will be something for every visitor. Several jubilee surprises are also in store.
