An alternative brewery in a completely alternative location! It might not seem like an obvious choice of venue to venture beyond Katowice, however, if you're on your way to Zabrze or Gliwice for some post-industrial tourism, a perfect stop-off point on your way (or even on your way back at the end of the day) is Alternatywa Browar Śląski in the town of Ruda Śląska. It's impressive, and is worth a visit in its own right as not only is there a bar with 10 taps and restaurant here (with great burgers and pork knuckles), the main selling point is you can take a guided tour of the family run brewery! The craft beer revolution in Poland has really taken hold, and it's places like Alternatywa that show us how it's all done in Silesia. The garden is a delight in the warmer months where events are regularly held. Check their Facebook page for the latest info. A perfect place.
