Dates of existence

1897 - 1929


Resch's Limited was established by Edmund Resch in 1897 when he purchased Allt's Brewery & Wine & Spirit Company. Installed by the company's creditors to manage Allt's, Resch decided to purchase Allt's Waverley Brewery (formerly the Adelaide Brewery). In 1900 Resch purchased the plant and stock of the New South Wales Lager Bier Brewing Company and his wife Caroline purchased a large property in Dowling Street, Waterloo. He closed the old Allt's Waverley Brewery in 1900. In January 1901 Resch centralised his brewing interest at the Dowling Street site and renamed it Waverley Brewery. The firm was incorporated in July 1906. Following Resch's death in 1923, his sons Edmund (Jnr) and Arnold continued to manage the company until it went into voluntary liquidation on 31 July 1929, selling their brewing interests to Tooth & Co. Tooth & Co purchased the Resch trademarks in 1930 and continued to produce "Resch's Beer". Brewing continued at the Dowling Street site until it was closed by Tooth & Co in the 1980s.
