The brewery was established in 1845 by Johann Evangelist Götz (1815-1893), a German beer maker born in Wirtemberg together with Joseph Neumann, from Austria-Hungary, and local Polish noble, Julian Kodrębski. The first batch of beer was brewed on February 23, 1846. During the "Rabacja", an Austrian-inspired peasant uprising in Galicia in 1846, directed at Polish nobility as well as affluent merchants, Götz barely escaped with his life. He survived thanks to help from local friends and the fact that the workers of his brewery stood up in his defense, certifying that his business provided good pay and decent working conditions. In turn, Götz helped to save the life of Julian Kodrębski, who had partly funded his brewery, by hiding him in woods on the banks of the Uszwica river in Brzesko, and providing him with food which was delivered over the course of ten days by workers from the brewery.
At the end of the war, in 1945 the brewery was nationalised by the communist authorities of the People's Republic of Poland and reorganized as the "Okocimskie Zakłady Piwowarskie" (Okocim Beer Factories). During the communist period, along with the Żywiec Brewery, Okocim was one of only two beer makers allowed to sell its products outside its region and abroad.
The palace of the Goetz-Okocimiski family, which was also taken over by the Nazis and then nationalized by the communists was also reprivatized and sold to the descendants of the family in 2007. In 2008 the palace was resold to a private couple which is planning on transforming the former residence of the Goetzes into a five star hotel and a modern spa, which would include the opportunity to bathe in the beer produced by the brewery.
Today, there are at least three brewhouses in use. The brewery is well preserved and a classic site in the modern history of beer-making, though recent additions have expanded it and seen the introduction of a few modern pieces of equipment.
Okocim O.K. Beer is more than just "O.K. Beer". It derives its quality from a recipe which incorporates the best of the indigenous Polish hop varieties, malted barley and pure spring water from the Tatra mountain range. The beer itself reflects the purity of these ingredients in its taste and is one of a handful of Polish brews that defined the "Polish Pils" style, which in turn separated Polish beers from the many other European brands. It is a light-to-medium-bodied beer that actually carries quite a bit of alcohol (5.6% ABV), though its aroma of floral Polish hops nicely masks this fact.
Carlsberg Polska have been brewing and exporting O.K. Beer around the world for more than 50 years! This is their cult beer with many different faces and one unique taste. It is by many regarded as the best brew in Poland, resulting it to disappear from the shelves so quickly that is becomes difficult to hunt one of these brews down.
Okocim O.K. Beer is the first variety of Okocim ever brought into the United States. The O.K. beer label remains mostly unchanged from its original design from nearly 40 years ago, which is a testimony to the spirit and vision of the brewer. The beer itself helped define the Polish Pils style, which in turn separated Polish brewing aside from the many other beers of Europe.

He created four designs for Okocim Jasne, each can telling a funny story with a wry observation on the theme of drinking beer and Polish culture. Consumers can buy individual cans and choose their favourite cartoon or buy a 4-pack with the themes randomly mixed and only revealed when the wrapper is removed. The added attraction of collecting a set of cans that make them laugh engages consumers even more closely with the brand.
