Around two months after the private brewery Bischoff filed for bankruptcy, operations at the company from Winnweiler near Karlsruhe are now being completely discontinued.
As the “Lebensmittel Zeitung” reports, “the necessary investments for potential investors were too high”. Until the very end, the group hoped to be able to maintain production through a potential financier.
According to the company, the financial reserves had already been used up around a year and a half before the start of the insolvency proceedings. In the end, even the money for necessary repairs was no longer there.

The managing partner Sven Bischoff cited the corona lockdown in the catering trade and the rise in energy prices as a result of the Ukraine war as the reasons for the insolvency.
In addition, the brewery could not produce the amount of beer that would have been possible according to the actual orders due to a defective ammonia line for the cooling. According to Bischoff, the operation was no longer able to cover its costs.
The assets of the group are now being sold so that the claims of creditors can be serviced.
Gas prices in Europe collapse shortly before the cold winter months. Do we suddenly have too much gas? Isn’t there a shortage in winter after all? And what do the falling prices mean for private households? Experts warn against jumping to conclusions.
Gas consumption by German companies has fallen drastically – on the one hand because production is being shut down. But Germany’s economy is also discovering clever ways of using less energy. In the corporations, it’s time for inventors.
