Skovstien EN - Beer – More Beer – Most Beer!
The Beer flowed in spite of bankruptcy In 1888 the stock company “Tondernshe Victoriabrauerei” (Victoria Brewery) opened as competition to “Actien Brauerei” in Østergade. Today lies a residential building here in ”Nystaden”. The Victoria Brewery never cornered the market in or around Tønder and West Schleswig even though the area had more than 80 pubs, which at the time was a record high number pr. citizen! In 1902 the brewery went bankrupt and was sold and changed to “Bürgerliches Brauhaus’”. The new owner even opened a cannery and tried his luck growing mushrooms in the basement of the brewery. That did not go well and he ran from debt and bankruptcy. “Bachmanns Vandmølle A/S” took over the buildings in 1927 and ran a grain and feed company for many years. It wasn’t until around 1990 that the brewery was torn down and rebuilt as a big and modern residential complex.
