Biery [ˈbjɛrɨ] (German: Bierau) is a village in Gmina Jasienica, Bielsko County, Silesian Voivodeship, southern Poland. It has a population of 1,233 (2009). It lies in the historical region of Cieszyn Silesia.

The village was created in the 16th century by the owners of Grodziec.[1] Originally it was named Birowy, and first appeared on a map from 1563.[2] However other source from 1610, issued by Adam Wenceslaus, Duke of Cieszyn, cites a privilege from 1554, where the village was already supposedly mentioned.[3]

There is a Catholic Heart of Jesus church in the village.

Inventor Józef Bożek was born here in 1782.
