    The brothers Mokrscy built a brewery in Szopienice in the second half of the nineteenth century. They produced beer and malt until the First World War, and later brewery buildings served rather as storage functions. In 1991, the buildings of the old brewery were bought by Johannes Bros, an entrepreneur who performed a thorough revitalization of the historic brick buildings - typical examples of nineteenth-century industrial architecture. Today, the Factory Center operates in the brewery.
