Development & expansion
The Brewery at the Malt Mill has always been one of the most traditional and popular breweries in Cologne, especially because the popular Mühlen Kölsch is brewed there in the back building section as well as in the cellar. With the conversion of the entire building complex from 2010 to 2015, capacities were significantly expanded. Since 2010, the brewery has been gradually expanded from 200 to 500 seats. With the newly erected HÖHNERStall, a multifunctional event room was created that offers a further 150 seats. Since 2017, food pairing has been a top priority here, where the right craft beer is available for all dishes. The new MühlenBar also specialises in craft beer and Kölsch cocktails. And with the ‘Hotel zur Malzmühle’, the brewery really managed a particular coup in 2015. Six of the 37 rooms feature their own Kölsch connection with a tap in the bathroom, according to the motto ‘cold, warm, Kölsch’.
