Brewing Company Reininghaus

In 1853, the married couple Johann Peter Reininghaus and Therese Mautner-Markhof bought the old Königshofer Brewery in Eggenberg, a community that had formed in the surrounding area of Graz only shortly before. Two years later, Johann Peter and his brother Julius founded the company Brüder Reininghaus, which produced beer, spirits, liqueurs, compressed yeast, and vinegar. At the turn of the twentieth century, Reininghaus was the fifth-largest brewery of the country, had about 700 employees, and exported beer even to the Levant, Zanzibar, East India, and South America.
