The next German brewery is on the brink: As the managing director Mirco Hell confirmed to the “Getränke Zeitung”, Jakobiner Bräu has filed for insolvency. The shareholders have therefore decided not to provide any further financing.

Hell launched the unfiltered “Vinzentiner” brand in Bavaria in May 2022. However, the desired success was apparently not forthcoming, which is why the path to insolvency is now pending.

According to its own statements, Jakobiner Bräu had built up between 2,500 and 3,000 hectoliters and used it to supply trade and gastronomy. The investor Günter Thiel from Splendid has now reportedly decided to finally turn off the money supply. Splendid currently holds 51 percent of the shares.

Many medium-sized breweries are currently in crisis. While large manufacturers such as Krombacher or Veltins have been able to celebrate great successes since the pandemic, many smaller brewers are struggling to survive. For example, the Friedenfels brewery based in the Upper Palatinate had to shut down operations just a few months ago.
