The top brewer in Bochum, it's roots go back to 1736, when the family starting brewing beer. However, a seperate brewery was not built until 1878 by Johann Fiege. The brewery really began to take off under his son Moritz, who brought in a new brewmaster and developed the distinct Pilsner. The company is still run by the Fiege family.
