Just south of Pritzwalk, Buchholz is now home to Prignitzer Hofbräu, a small brewery located within the Prignitzer Hof hotel and restaurant. (Sascha Bruns)


There may be a new brewery in Warnemünde but I have my doubts. There are the tell-tale signs of a 'craft' contract company - shiny website, 33cl bottles and no photo's of any brewing equipment. I contacted Hoppen un Molt three weeks ago for more detail but have yet to receive a reply. (Sascha Bruns)


Remember the short-lived Brauhaus Aloysianum in Opaden, near Leverkusen? It has reopened with the same name, owner and beers in Leichlingen, the next stop on the railway to Wuppertal. The new location is conveniently situated in the old station building (Roman Drüg)


Privatbrauerei Albersdorf has closed. The owner has relocated to Frankfurt where he hopes to resume brewing under the name Kröger's Bier once suitable premises have been found.
