A proper stag party in Krakow isn’t really proper until you visit Krakow’s most famous underground microbrewery. We have prepared a delicious menu which includes a huge dinner with traditionally Polish hamhock aka “Golonka” to satisfy even the biggest hunger and overcome even the worst hangover plus a huge beer “giraffe” to quench your thirst .
What a smart Krakow stag should know:
Krakow has many special secrets but one of them that the dedicated beer-coiffing, party- loving stag should learn about is the microbrewery. This is a genuine beer producer situated about a minute’s walk from the very centre of town so it’s no big deal to stagger from here to any of the other fantastic stag venues in Krakow.
You enter the establishment by a wide stairs from the street and move into a large, open hall where the drinker enjoys the fresh brews for which the brewery is famous. But the diner turns left and goes to the rather more exclusive rooms reserved for those who want to eat well whilst having tremendous fun with the beers.
The brewery dinner is the perfect way to start a Polish stag night with a menu that is as tasty as it looks. And it looks gorgeous! The restaurant is stylish, the service excellent and portions ample.
The smart Krakow stag (as long as he has no objection to pigs!) should enjoy the galonka. ‘What the ****,’ I hear you ask, ‘is “galonka”?’ Galonka is a mini joint of pork that comes from the “wrist” or “ankle” of the animal. Before being individually roasted, it is marinated in dark beer and herbs, then skewered on a mini spit and served at the table with sauces, bread and salad. Each person gets his own version the size of a small chicken!
The surrounding fat is a deep golden brown in colour and almost an inch thick. The hungry stag simply peels this aside and finds tender, dark meat in large quantities inside. It is simply stunning food and is the best way to prepare the body for a long, long stag night.
But what about the beer? This is served in 5 litre containers called “giraffes”. The beers of choice, whether that is light, medium or dark, are served by the diners from a tap at the base. Sounds whacky, works a treat!
And the beer itself is unique. Full of flavour, freshly tapped and easy to drink since its sparkle is natural and not the result of artificially introduced bubbles! It’s also bloody strong!
The menu is pretty extensive, so those stags that have issues with meat in general or pork in particular, still do very nicely as well.
So, gentlemen members of stag parties in Krakow, there you have one of the best ways to eat and drink in Polish style before hitting the town!
