Liverpool-based craft beer brewers Mad Hatter Brewing Company have ceased trading and are being placed into liquidation.
The business, which was launched in 2013, supplied licensed premises throughout the country and as far afield as Australia. Penny Lane Pale Ale , Toxteth IPA and Tzatziki Sour were it’s most famous beers. It was well-known as being an innovative brewery that shook up the boundaries of what people thought was possible with beer.
The business employed six people and was based on Lightbody Street in the city centre.
Jason Greenhalgh, partner at Begbies Traynor in Liverpool, has been approached to assist with the winding up and selling off the assets:
“The company began to experience financial difficulties in 2017 due to unforeseen costs associated with it’s premises move. The owner of the business decided, after every effort to save the business as a going concern, that it was necessary to appoint Liquidators. Sue Staring, the owner, is saddened to see the business close after many successful years but is proud of how the business grew from such humble origins.”
Jason first started at Begbies Traynor in July 1989 as a junior and progressed though to Senior Administrator over a period of time to 1997.
After a short time away, he rejoined Begbies Traynor and sat the JIEB Exam in December 2002 and obtained a non-appointment license the following year.
In May 2008 Jason was promoted to Insolvency Director, upgraded his insolvency license with the IPA and has taken appointments since May 2008. Jason has gained valuable experience at every level and has dealt with a wide range of different insolvency assignments. For the past 10 years he has concentrated on the mid range insolvency market.
