Conference site

Lubicz Brewery is located in the heart of Cracow, walking distance from the Main Train Station and the Main Square of the Old Town. It is a complex of historical industrial buildings of the brewery, which operated in Cracow in the years 1840-2001 and has been recently restored as a restaurant with a microbrewery and a unique conference center. It is strongly connected to the history of Cracow and the entire beer industry in Poland.

The history of this place dates to 1840, when the Swiss brew master Rudolf Jenni founded the brewery in urban land. In the early twentieth century, Jan Götz-Okocimski, a known industrialist and brewer, became the new owner of the brewery. After the war the brewery was nationalized and since 1968 was part of breweries in Okocim. In 1985, the complex of brewery buildings at Lubicz 15-17 was included in the list of Krakow historical buildings. In 2001 due to its location within the city center, the brewery was closed for logistical and ecologic issues.

Recently the complex of buildings was reconstructed and renovated, while preserving the historical value of the place. The most interesting building is the Old Malt House, which is a unique example of industrial architecture. The brewery is now one of the objects on the route of the Krakow Technology Trail that connects seventeen industrial heritage sites. In 2015 the microbrewery "Browar Lubicz" started to brew again, reviving the tradition.
