The “Brauerei zur Malzmühle” opened over 150 years ago and remains a genuine family brewery, managed today by the fifth generation of the Schwartz family. The second oldest brewery in Cologne is one of the few that still produces at its place of origin – at the center of the old town at the Hay Market (Heumarkt), at the very heart of the cathedral city.
The legendary Koch’sche Malzbier (malt beer) is still brewed exactly as it was in 1858, when it made the brewery the most beloved meeting point for the residents of Cologne.
The best-known beer produced by the Malzmühle, of course, is the Mühlen Kölsch – a character Kölsch that is brewed and filled in the original building of the “Brauerei zur Malzmühle” at the Hay Market, where handcraft is still being used according to the old brewing tradition and the German Purity Law of 1516. The combination of ingredients and production that uses an old family recipe dating to 1858 imparts the typical, characteristically robust, malty, full-flavored taste to our Mühlen Kölsch.
We rang-in a new era when we opened the Hotel zur Malzmühle, the HOEHNER Stall, and the MühlenBar:
“The Malzmühle – the genuine Cologne lifestyle – all under one roof!”
We look forward to your visit!
