In the late 1880s Friederich Dieninghoff decided to open his own brewery and just a few years later he succeeded with the launch of Germania beer. However, in 1980 the company had to close down the brewery due to a lack of demand. In 2008, architect Andreas Deilmann renovated the factory and gave the place a new purpose with the creation of the Factory Hotel. The main structure remains the same with many details from the original building. For instance the brewing tank serves as a dancing space in the evening, the changing rooms of the workers is now the lobby; and the restaurant, La Tapia, is located where the brew kettle once stood.
