Storz Brewing Company


The Storz Brewing Company was founded in the 1860s as the Saratoga Brewery in Saratoga, Nebraska. It changed hands twice in that decade, and was renamed the Columbia Brewery. In 1884, Gottlieb Storz bought the company and moved it to Omaha, Nebraska, renaming it the Storz Brewing Company. Gottlieb Storz died in 1939, but the company remained with his family until 1966, when it was sold to the Grain Belt Brewery of Minnesota. The brewery in Omaha closed in 1972.
