The roots of brewing in the Sauerland go back to the 1300s. The current brewery is first officially mentioned in 1803, when it was basically a family run house. Their brews became popular with steel workers and miners. The Krombacher Pils began being bottled in 1890, although the official name wasn't around until about 1904. At that time, production was some 35,000 hl. (Today, the Pils flagship is one of Germany's more popular, with approx. 9% marketshare, some 5.5 million hl.)
