Viersen, Germany

Outside the center of Viersen, there was already a brewery in 1854, which was taken over by Anton Lohbusch in 1869 and equipped with state-of-the-art steam technology. In 1893 Anton Lohbusch became the head of the brewery and the name Lohbusch Bräu is born. A new brewhouse in Viersen was built in 1899, close to the cold storage that was dated 1895. The main building with fermenting cellars was built in 1904


In 1964 the brewery is taken over by a company from the brothers Leipold, but the brand does not change its name. The brewery became famous for its alt and the caramel beer. In 1970 the brewery closed his doors after 100 years of brewing Lohbusch Bräu beers. The buildings were used until 1993 as a distribution center. The demolition of the buildings started in 2007. Parts of the building will be saved.
