to the Malzmühle
Experience the charm of Cologne’s zest for life and its hospitality in our traditional brew house.
Visit our traditional brewery house with self-made food and many specialities typical of Cologne and always with freshly-tapped Mühlen Kölsch.
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” 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.
The “Brauerei zur Malzmühle” opened over 160 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 Malzmühle – the genuine Cologne lifestyle – all under one roof!”
