Paulaner’s Former Bowery Brewery Can be Yours for $50K per Month

Posted on: July 31st, 2019 at 5:07 am by

The only brewery on the Bowery remains dry and desperate for investors. But only if you have deep pockets.

Over a year since its high-profile failure, the former Paulaner Brauhaus at 265 Bowery is again on the market. Requisite real estate listings want you to know that the German beer company dropped $2 million on building out the premises. The 4,500 square-foot brewery is now going for a whopping $50,400 per month in rent.

The placement of a German microbrewery in this spot – formerly the iconic Sammy’s Bowery Follies – seemed a hefty gamble upon announcement in 2012. It replaced Attias Oven Corp./Cannon Co. restaurant suppliers (building owners), which relocated to Brooklyn. From the get-go, many in the community questioned its financial viability. No more was that evident than four months into operations (circa April 2014) when the enormous establishment suddenly shuttered for unspecified “refurbishments.”

It hobbled on, but the initial closure was ultimately a bellwether for the future here…
