Roadside Beer

Conch Umbrella Factory, Greenpoint (Dec. 2013)
Opening a bottle, pouring it out, and taking a first sip, at a cafe in Krynica or Stary Sacz, Wojtek would declare it the "good Żywiec." A Varsovian to the bone, he maintained they kept the good Żywiec for themselves, in the mountains, and sent the "bad Żywiec" to the other parts of the country, notably Warsaw. Most of the Polish-Americans in Greenpoint come from the poorer, southern part of the country, so I'm guessing we get the good Żywiec.
