POZNAŃ BEER EXPO
The annual Poznań Beer Expo inaugurated in 2013 is a unique event., The joyful celebration of one of the oldest alcoholic beverages in the world is intertwined with the professional nature of the expo. It is an excellent opportunity to learn about the culture, history and contemporary world of craft beer.
During the Beer Expo, brewing enthusiasts and first-timers to the beer subject will have a great time. Every year, we take you on a journey through the ocean of tastes, flavours and colours of beer, brewed in dozens of breweries in Poland and around the world – from Grodziskie beer to Baltic porter, from New Zealand lager to India pale ale. We provide you with the opportunity to taste the highest quality craft beers, ciders and meads, as well as knowledge of products inextricably associated with the industry.
The Fair, however, is not only about beer; it is above all about the extraordinary people – home and professional brewers, bloggers, beer enthusiasts and collectors, as well as those who simply love a good beer. It is an opportunity to talk, share experiences or learn something new! If you do not know what bottom fermentation is or to which beer you should add coriander, then you will have a unique opportunity to learn at the fair.
Street Food Spot
You cannot drink beer without getting hungry – that is why, for the very first time in 2017 we are introducing Street Food Spot – a second event that will support Poznań Beer Expo during its time. This event is dedicated to all urban food lovers. Thanks to cooperation with Poznań International Fair we can provide our guests with more selection of dishes, even better quality of service as well as bigger attractions. Participants will be able to choose between snacks, main course meals, sweets, non-alcoholic beverages and even regional products from the vast selection of food trucks and catering stands. We can assure that you won’t leave hungry!
POZNAŃ BEER LAWN
The first Poznań Beer Lawn event was held for the first time in 2016. It is a unique event that combines the best of everything: excellent beer from Greater Poland craft breweries, great music in the surrounding of greenery and an incredible atmosphere, as well as location – the XIX century artillery fort.
One of the major points of the programme were the concerts, which added splendour to the event. On the stage of the Poznań Beer Lawn, one could listen to various music genres, all in excellent performances.
The Lawn is also accompanied by the Beer Mile, i.e., a race with four stops for beer, while those craving for relaxation will find solace in the chillout zone. The Poznań Beer Lawn is an event that is open to all regardless of age and interests.
Grzegorz StachurskiSzef wszystkich szefów
Beer judge, sensory expert and man of a thousand ideas. Initiator of the Poznań Beer Expo idea and co-founder of the Poznań based Setka brewery. He began his adventure with craft beer in 2011, so it can be safely said that he is a seasoned trooper. He spouts beer trivia, anecdotes and stories like it’s nobody’s business and meetings, conversations and people are what fuels his actions!
Alicja StachurskaOgarniacz chaosu
The backbone of the undertaking. Has an incomprehensible love to Excel spreadsheets, arranges, orders and files all ideas and plans, and later puts them into action and makes everything work like a Swiss watch. Between gearing everything up and responding to e-mails, she enjoys classic, mild and slightly sour beers. She is fascinated by the world of craft beer and learns more about it each day.
Marysia BanachMatka Internetów
Doesn’t know beer, but she sure can Internet. Makes a few things up, sometimes throws a hint, but most of all writes. She’s the one who informs us of what’s going on and responds to your Facebook comments. In her free time she cooks (and blogs – Gruszka z fartuszka) or plays board games. She is only now getting to know the world of craft beer and so far is most interested in the tasting part. However, she already knows what IBU is and doesn’t like it when there’s too much of it.
Kasia JędrzejczakMagazyn Pozytywnej Energii
Owner of the broadest smile in the whole team. She only knows a little about crafts (just enough to know that she likes the sour ones and everything refreshing), but knows a lot about people. She distributes tasks, maintains order and makes sure that everything is alright even in her sleep. You’ll recognize her either by her being the one giving out orders via walkie-talkie, or running through the hall with wind in her hair to check on what’s happening on the other end.
Jan SzoferZnawca tematu
The fair is his element. For 5 years he has been visiting the largest events in Europe, where he oversees the execution of projects, which means that he’s more often away than around. He has intensely looked at the work of other trade fair organizers, which is why he is now in charge of our technical infrastructure. He loves to travel (not just to the bar) and brings at least a few local beers from every trip. He likes it best when its smoked sour rye or hopped IPA.
