Grodziskie is a Sour Smoked Wheat Ale that was brewed in the 1900’s in East Prussia and dates back to as early as the 15th century. It was named after the Polish town of Grodzisk Wielkopolski or Grätz in German. This historic version is brewed according to the German Purity Law with air-dried barley malt and beech smoked wheat malt then hopped with Perle and Saaz. A sour mash is created using the old and forgotten technique called “Digerieren”. Finally, a three month aging and maturation process creates a complex sour, smoky and heavily hopped wheat ale.
