Poltava beer


The first Poltava beer began to be brewed at a local brewery in 1965. This drink has quickly gained recognition among gourmands of Ukraine. Since then, Poltava has been brewing excellent beer for half a century. Our current products combine excellent taste, natural ingredients, and a new brewing tradition of central Ukraine. Poltava beer is a legend that has grown without outside influences and trends. That is why our beer differs from many other varieties with its mild recognizable taste.


The Poltava brewery has almost half a century of its history. But years are not the only wealth we are proud of. During the time that has passed since the creation of the first Poltava beer until today, we have accumulated a lot of experience and awards that have become a guarantee of quality. Our products are popular not only in Ukraine but also abroad.
