If you were to ask for a piwo in Poland you would get a beer as piwo is the polish word for beer (pronounced 'pi-vo').

Polish beer is excellent compared to most of the weaker lager you get in England. It tastes nice and is generally a lot stronger, ranging from about 5% to 7.5% ABV.

Unlike most super-strength beers (Special Brew, Kestrel etc.) a strong piwo does not taste like it's had meths added to it. In fact, many people have made the mistake of thinking that because it tastes good you can just drink it like you would drink normal lager... with hilarious consequences!
