About BEER OR DIE

BEER OR DIE is a surf lifestyle brand founded in April 2015 in Warsaw by creatives, who like to shotgun a beer from time to time. We are focused on manufacturing high quality tees and tanks, and discovering amazing graphic designers from around the world who help us on our journey. We teamed up with Arswandaru, Jack Bentley, Yahyatune, Weaselface and many more to create our one of a kind collections. The idea to hand dye tees came from a desire to make every piece unique and unrepeatable. In September 2015 BEER OR DIE became the official sponsor of WakeFest at Lake Wauburg in Florida and Gator Wake – (Wakeboarding National Champions). In June 2016 Katarzyna purchased the BEER OR DIE 86' T3 VW van which has quickly became the brand's icon and one of the raddest whips on the streets. In the same year we established cooperation with multibrand retailer Goodbye Bread as well as many surf shops. Now, in 2021, through our e-store we have gathered amazing customers from 13 countries and 4 continents connecting the surfers, the beer lovers and anyone who wants to come along for the ride.
