    Malt Beer and Art Nouveau: The malt beer specialties patented by Christoph Groterjan were the main attraction of this small brewery at 4 Milastraße. A typical Berlin banquet hall with a nine-pin bowling alley and a beer garden with room for 1,500 guests were meant to boost beer consumption and thus profits. Right down the street, at 1 Milastraße, the brewmaster built an ornate villa as his private home and business headquarters. But by 1908 both the brewery and the restaurant had gone bankrupt. A chocolate and sugar factory moved into the production hall. The banquet hall first accommodated the “Mila-Lichtspiele” movie theater and then, until 1990, a rehearsal stage for the Volksbühne on Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz. The space is now occupied by a furniture store, and the villa is home to a restaurant.
