Beers from Poland

Origins of beer in Poland are closely associated with Grodziskie style, a wheat beer smoked with oak original from the city of Grodzisk. After the WWII most breweries were nationalized, and after the fall of communism the market narrowed being now controlled by 3 big companies being now the third largest producer in Europe after Germany and the UK. Craft beer didn't take off in Poland until 2011, with the foundation of Pinta brewery, but since then several top breweries have taken the scene, as Browar Stu Mostów, Artezan or Kormoran.
