An Unexpected Brewery Now Files For Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

An unexpected brewery now files for chapter 11 bankruptcy after disclosing debts and assets between $1 million and $10 million.

Schoffstall Farm LLC, the Harrisburg. Pa., owner of SpringGate, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania.

In the May 14 filing, the company disclosed that it had between 1 and 49 creditors, and debts and assets between $1 million and $10 million.

SpringGate Vineyard began as a winery, then expanded to become a destination that also brews craft beer and holds many special events.

In its 10-year history, SpringGate has grown rapidly.

However, the company says that it plans to remain open and operate as it has been.

No financial plan has been submitted to the court, but the company did post a message on its Facebook page.

“SpringGate is open and will remain open operating as it has been, and we thank our many customers, partners, and supporters from the past, present, and for the future,” the company said in the post.

“SpringGate has filed for financial reorganization which entails a sale,” it said.

“This is a necessary action for an orderly transition to what we believe will be a better future.

We ask for you to continue to visit us, bringing friends and family, and enjoying our products and unique gathering places which will help support us during this transition.”

Owner Marty Schoffstall did not respond to a request for comment from

In addition to its on-site activities, SpringGate distributes wine and beer to a number of grocery and convenience stores across Pennsylvania.

Another unexpected fashion company now files for bankruptcy citing “extremely high costs due to inflation”, and other troubles.

Fashion brand Esprit has filed for insolvency in Europe citing “extremely high costs due to inflation, interest rates and energy prices, the after-effects of the coronavirus pandemic and the consequences of international conflicts.”

The insolvency filing, which was submitted to a court in Germany, applies only to the company’s European businesses.

All stores and online operations will continue as normal throughout the proceedings, during which the company said it will undergo a “transformation program” to reorganize its finances and business in Europe.

However, the company did note that high rents and an “overly bloated workforce” were some of factors contributing to its financial woes, foreshadowing potential cuts in both areas.

Founded in the U.S. in 1968, the company is now headquartered in Germany and Hong Kong and is listed on the Hong Kong stock exchange.

This is the second time Esprit has entered bankruptcy in the past four years.

Esprit currently has a presence in 40 countries around the globe, with the company’s Asia-Pacific and North and South America divisions unaffected by the European proceedings.

Each group within Esprit’s European business will be tasked with proposing and executing its own restructuring plan tailored to its region “allowing for more creative solutions and potentially better outcomes,” said the company in a statement.

The group also said it is exploring new funding opportunities and that a number of “potential investors have expressed their interest for a strategic partnership.”

“The self-administration proceedings have been initiated with the primary objective of not only restoring the economic stability of the company but also retaining the strength of the Esprit brand name,” said the statement.

“By taking proactive steps to address the disproportionate operating costs and streamline the business, the company demonstrates its commitment to maintaining a strong and competitive brand presence in the market.”

This second European bankruptcy comes as the Esprit works to reestablish its presence in North America, an effort that kicked off last year with a series of pop-ups across the U.S.
