Explanation:
If the reference is to the corporate structure - branches and a main operation - this is the usual translation. However, if it's just a question of a brewery and some pubs why not just say "the brewery". Incidently, as an Austrian based piss-artist I was fascinated by the link. Pity it doesn't work. In times like these one needs a lot of refreshment.
