Are these missiles getting made in Germany? I've seen people comment about another production line for Brimstone but cant seem to find an information on it.

Technically the nine years contract for 3266 Brimstone III was given to MBDA Germany which subtracted MBDA UK for the production but this don't exclude in the future a secondary production line in Germany.

The tweet you linked to links to an article that says
The Brimstone 3s intended for the Luftwaffe will therefore be assembled by MBDA Deutschland, at its Schrobenhausen site
