Best bids are being sought for the six-strong Bierkeller portfolio, after substantial interest has been shown in individual and multiple sites.

Davis Coffer Lyons, which is advising on the disposal of Bierkeller, is seeking best bids by 12 November.

The portfolio comprises the multi-concept Bierkeller sites in Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Nottingham, Birmingham as well as the Potting Shed in Harrogate. The other Potting Shed sites are unconnected to the deal and will continue to be managed by Downing LLP.

The sale was instigated by the administrators of Burning Night Group, Begbies Traynor. As first revealed by MCA last month, the Leeds-based group was placed into administration after a petition from the Crowdstacker crowdfunding site.
