Additional Information

Berliner Pilsner was created in 1902 as a small brewery in Berlin.
In 1969, The Berliner Pilsner Brewery was nationalised and incorporated in the East German "VEB Berliner Getränkekombinat" (Volkseigener Betrieb abbreviated as VEB, means a publicly owned corporation).
After the German reunification in 1990 the brewery was independently run and relaunched in 1992 with a new image and logo re-branding of a bear in front of the Reichstag dome.
In 2003 it was acquired by the Radeberger Group and merged with several other Berlin-area brewery holdings to form Berliner-Kindl-Schultheiss-Brauerei.

Over the years the brand identity is updated and re-launched with subtle changes, a change of Logo or a new font.
Sometimes this brand update is done by the new owners after a brewery has been sold, other times just to give the brand a fresh new look on the ever growing market.

Below are some notes to help identify some of these changes and an aid to reference the year of the glass.
