Friedenfelser brewery closes: "You can no longer compensate for this with higher beer prices"

Managing Director Johannes Freiherr von Gemmingen-Hornberg had to make this decision for economic reasons.

He emphasized to Oberpfalz-Medien that all of this came at him like an avalanche.

He took over the brewery from his father two years ago.

Economically, the brewery is simply no longer sustainable after years of the corona pandemic, gastro closures, bans on events, inflation and the increase in energy costs.

In some cases there have been cost increases of 100 percent.

"You can no longer compensate for this with higher beer prices," the managing director is quoted as saying.
