The tanks, furnishings and other gear from a recently shuttered Shockoe Bottom brewery are up for grabs this weekend at auction, less than a week after its closure.
The landlord of 7 Hills Seafood & Brewing Co., which shut down Jan. 21, is holding a public auction Jan. 27 to sell the brewpub’s fermenters, coolers, restaurant furniture and other items, according to a legal notice.
7 Hills’ equipment in its space at 115 S. 15th St. was used as collateral in an agreement with its landlord, Elf Tenant L.P., an entity tied to Margaret Freund’s Fulton Hill Properties.
Representatives for 7 Hills could not be reached leading up to its closure. Messages left for Fulton Hill Properties regarding the auction were not returned Wednesday.
Williams Mullen attorney Chip Bliley is handling the auction for the landlord. He would not comment.
The Saturday auction will be held at 11 a.m. at Canal Crossing at 101 S. 15th St. The legal notice says a $20,000 deposit may be required at the time of sale.
The notice states a portion of the property will be sold subject to $67,000 in federal tax liens owed to the IRS.
Court records also show the business was hit with tax liens by the state in July 2016, April 2017 and June 2017, saying it owed more than $50,000 in state sales and employee withholding taxes.
