In the very first year of its history, the brewery produced broadly 15.900 hl of beer and in the coming years the production increased and export was expanding. Since 1882 the brewery existed in Hanušovice under a name of "Brauerei von Chiari & Co. zu Hannsdorf - Halbseit". In the year of 1886 the brewery had a production of 23.006 hl.
|In 1907 three breweries were united – Hanušovice, Šumperk and Třemešek – into an economic subject and all the properties and rights became a part of join-stock company "Nordmarische Brauerei und Malzfabrik, Aktiengesellschaft in M. Schönberg". In the years 1910 – 1911 the company made an yearly product of 23.006 hl. Since 1918 the company was renamed into "Severomoravský pivovar a sladovna, akciová společnost v Šumperku".

After the nationalization in 1948 the Hanušovice brewery had a name of "Pivovar Hanušovice n. p." Later the Moravian breweries became united and so did the Hanušovice brewery. It became a part of the national company "Severomoravské pivovary Přerov".
