Bärenquell Brauerei (Brewery abandoned to the bears)

Once the Berlin Wall came down locals suddenly had a lot more to do than just drink. Unfortunately for breweries in East Germany this spelled the end for most of them. Beer production plummeted, and in the years following reunification breweries in the former GDR closed down and were abandoned quicker than parties when the fridge runs dry. They simply couldn't compete with trendy beers available from the West everyone wanted to drink because they could.
