Lo Artisan Distillery Defaults on Door County Revolving Loan

The owners of Lo Artisan Distillery, makers of a traditional high-proof Hmong rice liquor, at 1607 Stevenson Pier Road in Brussels, failed to appear at a Sept. 6 court hearing. The County of Door was awarded a default judgment of $33,452.78 plus interest from April 20, 2016. Owners Po Lo and Charlotte Vang owed that much from a $60,000 loan that was provided for purchase of distilling equipment by the Door County Board of Supervisors in 2009 from the Door County Revolving Loan Fund. “Collectability – the county’s ability to make the judgment debtors pay the judgment – is typically the challenge,” said Corporation Counsel Grant Thomas.
