Where is the closest Beer Distributor to Portland, Maine 04101 that I can purchase this product from? I used to have a Polish friend get this in NYC. I enjoyed letting warm to room temp to get the full body taste.

Bottle (empty) I have in hand says "Alc 8.7% by vol." First tasted at a pub in Newtown PA. A Polish friend bought a case in NJ for me. I really enjoy the full-body taste; 8.7% does have a kick! However I may be biased because I have Polish blood (3rd generation) and seek out different Polish beers (and vodkas). In two trips to Poland and drinking with relatives, never saw this beer(?)

To bad we cannot enjoy this kind of beer in America. I am not a bigfan of strong beer but this one simply spectacular. Perfectly balancedwith just right amount of extract (20%) and no taste of alcohol(9.1%). Nothing else comes even close. Once you try it you will behooked for life.
