Give anything a little time and suddenly everything starts to make sense.
We were alerted recently to the following public information on file in Catawba County court system with regard to the Hollar Hosiery Mill:
Since the legal cases were filed recently (in early-May 2013), we don't know if they have been resolved or still pending. But, the Defendants (Hollar Hosiery is listed as a Defendant in both) are alleged, according to the above complaints, to owe more than $586,000.
Since part of our lease agreement was the eventual ownership of the brewery equipment, it begs the question: Would all of the brewery equipment, as a current asset of Hollar Hosiery, been in jeopardy? Or would there have been a lien(s) placed against the equipment by the Plaintiffs? We don't know.
There are hundreds of other questions that these cases raise. We can't answer them here. We can only speculate. But, as we stated before, give anything a little time and the picture becomes clear.
Since this is public information (if we can get it), why hasn't there been any mention of this in the local newspapers? Being scooped by an ale company, in a different state, might be an interesting question as well.
