Paddy Sweeney's plans for expansion into the North Island were punctured in the Christchurch High Court this week.
Justice Warwick Gendall disallowed a plea to again adjourn the liquidation petition against West Coat Brewery.
West Coat Brewery is a subsidiary of Westcoast Brewing, also owner of West Coast Bar & Grill in Christchurch, which is unaffected.
The liquidators continue to trade the brewery, which supplies the Christchurch outlet and other customers.
