The arrival of steam power in the 19th century changed brewing completely – human muscle-power is replaced by machine, thanks to which production can grow at an astronomical pace. The scale of the industrialization of beer production is proudly described by the sources of the time. In the agricultural exhibition catalogue of 1885, where Haberbusch & Schiele were present, we read:
“In 1876, a steam-engine, the equivalent of six horse-power was commissioned to pump water and also pelleting the hops. In addition, a three-storey malting house was built that year, to process 12,000 bushels of barley. In 1882 an artesian well was constructed by means of a steam pump. In 1884 the Brewery exhibited the latest inventions and improvements in the brewing field, as well as fermentation and chilling processes. It also increased the malting capacity to produce 20 thousand bushels of barley. All areas of the factory are steam driven, by a stationary engine equaling 20 horse-power”.
