Grodziskie has been made in Grodzisk Wielkopolski since around the Middle Ages, and probably contained a much higher percentage of wheat than some modern variations. It is still brewed by some homebrewers in Poland with 100% smoked wheat grain bills. Between 1929 and 1993, this style had a regionally protected designation put in place by the Cabinet of Poland. Starting in 1922, the production of grätzer was continued by only one company, United Breweries Grodziskie. Beer was produced by this company until 1993, when the brewery was closed due to lack of profitability. This ceased commercial production of this style for several years.
