I was most surprised when I discovered that Porter was brewed in the DDR. Excited, too, when I got to drink some.
While you couldn't find it in every corner shop, it was brewed in small quantities by a large number of breweries. Which is sort of what I'm trying to prove here.
These are just the labels I own. I've seen lots of others from different breweries. There must have been at least 25-30 producing it in the DDR. As far as I'm aware, it was usually top-fermented. I wonder why they all disappeared after reunification?
