Bürgerbräu Wolnzach AG
Bürgerbräu Wolnzach AG from Bavaria in Germany had to file for insolvency due to liquidity
problems. A PLUTA restructuring expert acted as insolvency administrator. He kept the
brewery’s business operations going and held negotiations with several interested buyers.
Although the small brewery ceased brewing beer, the insolvency administrator was able to
continue selling beer as the company’s warehouses were well stocked. Finally, it was
possible to sell the brewery. The buyer originates from the Upper Bavaria region but has
been living in the US for several years, where he successfully operates two breweries.
Having found a buyer with roots in the region, the PLUTA team achieved the best solution for
the brewery and the creditors. This also means that this region, home to the German Hop
Museum, will still have a brewery in future.
