The origin of the current Mohren brewery lies in the "Zum Mohren" inn, which takes its name from the owner of the inn and Josef Mohr brewery. This was mentioned for the first time in 1784 as "Mohrenwirt". 50 years later, the ownership of the brewery passed to the ownership of the Huber family.

Franz Anton Huber, a merchant and blacksmith from Dornbirn-Markt, purchased the inn, including the estate and its brewery, from a brewery in Hohenems on May 1, 1834. The brewery has been family owned since that day.
