In the late 18th century, Joseph Pschorr (1770-1841) purchased the Hackerbrewery from his father-in-law Peter-Paul Hacker. He consequently established a different brewery under his own name. His two children, Georg Pschorr (1798-1867) and Matthias Pschorr Sr., partitioned his home by each assuming responsibility for one of the two separate distilleries. In 1972, Hacker and Pschorr converged to frame Hacker-Pschorr, however the beers were sold as independent brands well after 1975.
