Kout Brewery was founded probably after disappearance of Rýzmberk castle during the 30 year war.
First written records are however dated later in the first years of the 18th century. Records mention the year of 1736 as the foundation year. The brewery bloomed in the era when it belonged to the earl kin of Stadions when it was gradually expanded to current shape.
When the Stadion kin died off at the beginning of the 20th century, the brewery changed proprietary repeatedly and from 1924 until the end of World War II it belonged to the Schönborn kin.
