Over 200 years of experience


Foundation of the company in Hutschdorf

Johann Heinrich Schütz founds the company in Hutschdorf. At that time, it comprised agriculture, a malt house, a brewery and an inn. The business was continued and expanded over the next two generations by Johann and Christoph Schütz.


Specialization in the production of malt

August Schütz continues to run the business in the 4th generation. Brewery operations are completely shut down.


Commissioning the roasting drum

The production of malt coffee in the roasting drum provided a renewed economic upswing.


Malting plant in Harsdorf as second location
