A year of change and challenge:
We stop operation of our bottling plant. The beer is still brewed in Landau and after maturing is taken to an external bottler. At the same time, we return to the Euro bottle which is a typical Bavarian beer bottle.
The warehouse and administration are now located at Siemensstrasse 13 in Wallersdorf.
The rise of the corona pandemic and the restrictions it entails are posing great difficulties for the company.
