An Important Celebration of Poland’s Craft Beer Industry
Warsaw Beer Festival is a noteworthy occasion not only for Funky Fluid, but for all Poland’s craft breweries. It is a high point in the Polish beer calendar. Months in advance, brewers are busy producing special beers, sought-after collaborations and unique small-batch experiments, all for pouring fresh at WFP. This semi-annual gathering is also an opportunity for brewers to meet their fans and chat over beer. Furthermore, organised by Wolny Kraft (beer Association for Polish Craftsmanship), WFP is the Polish beer industry’s networking event, a get together to discover trends, learn from peers and meet suppliers and distributors. For both brewers and beer lovers, Warsaw Beer Festival is an unforgettable experience.
Funky Fluid is a significant exporter and has earned a reputation as one of the most in-demand Polish craft beer brands across the EU, the UK and beyond. So it is at the forefront of introducing Polish beer to a much larger global audience. Not only that, but it is also among Poland’s top-rated breweries on Untappd.
Why European Craft Beer Is Popular: Untappd Partnership Connects With Enthusiasts
In partnership with Untappd and the Warsaw Beer Festival, Funky Fluid has produced two unique festival beers. Gelato: Szarlotka is an Apple Pie Ice Cream Sour, produced in collaboration with Szymanowice Press (W spółce z naturą/Corporation With Nature). Warsaw Dream is a Polish NEIPA, produced in collaboration with PolishHops. But these beers are not only brewed as a delight to enjoy at the festival, but also as a Polish beer industry study: the Research on Ratings Project.
Poland’s brewers have noticed that some beers rate higher on Untappd in one country than in another. And some beers rate lower, depending on the country. But why is that? With Untappd’s help, the Polish beer industry is trying to find an answer. Funky Fluid will distribute Szarlotka and Warsaw Dream across 17 European countries. It is hoped as many drinkers as possible in diverse locations add a check-in on Untappd.
Untappd will then analyse the results, comparing them with check-ins from the Warsaw Beer Festival. How may the ratings differ? The results will be interesting for everyone working in the beer industry across the world.
