Joseph Schlitz Brewing Company From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (Redirected from Schlitz ) "Schlitz" redirects here. For other uses, see Schlitz (disambiguation) . Joseph Schlitz Brewing Company LocationMilwaukee, Wisconsin Owner(s) Pabst Brewing (brands owner) Year opened 1858 Website

The Joseph Schlitz Brewing Company was an American brewery based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin , and was once the largest producer of beer in the world. Its namesake beer, Schlitz, was known as "The beer that made Milwaukee famous" and was famously advertised with the slogan "When you're out of Schlitz, you're out of beer". [1 ] Schlitz first became the world's top beer producer in 1902 and enjoyed that status at several points during the first half of the twentieth century, exchanging the claim with Anheuser-Busch multiple times during the 1950s. [2 ]

The company was founded by August Krug in 1849 but acquired by Joseph Schlitz in 1858. [3 ] Schlitz was bought by Stroh Brewery Company in 1982 and subsequently sold along with the rest of Stroh's assets to the Pabst Brewing Company in 1999.

In Milwaukee, Schlitz was hired as a bookkeeper in a tavern brewery owned by August Krug. In 1856, he took over management of the brewery following the death of Krug. Two years after Schlitz married Krug's widow, he changed the name of the brewery to the Jos. Schlitz Brewing Co. [4 ]

The company began to succeed after the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, when Schlitz donated thousands of barrels of beer to that city, which had lost most of its breweries. He quickly opened a distribution point there, beginning a national expansion. Schlitz built dozens of tied houses in Chicago, most with a concrete relief of the company logo embedded in the brickwork; several of these buildings survive today, including Schuba's Tavern at the corner of Belmont and Southport. In 1873 Schlitz rejected a purchase offer from Tennessee brewer Bratton and Sons; Schlitz felt his dream of quality beer for the people was more important than immediate financial gain.

Schlitz died May 7, 1875, when on a return visit to Germany; his ship hit a rock near Land's End , Cornwall , and sank. Control of the corporation passed into the hands of the Uihlein brothers, nephews of founder August Krug. When Anna Maria Krug Schlitz died in 1887, the Uihleins acquired complete ownership of the firm. [5 ]
