A LOCAL group of investors has signed an option agreeement with the City of Terrace to build a brew pub on one section of the old Co-op shopping centre location.

The site, on the northwest corner of the location close to the Western Financial Group and Staples, means the Skeena Brewery Company can now apply for the necessary licences to build a 2,000 litre brewery and lounge.

“This is the first step toward the construction of an iconic building that will showcase the area’s natural resources, culture, and outdoor lifestyle,” said Greg Linton, the president of the company and one of several physicians who have invested in the venture.

He signed the option agreement with Terrace mayor Dave Pernarowski April 25.

In addition to the brewery, plans are to build a 45-seat lounge suitable for highlighting local entertainment and local foods.

“The intent is to offer a service and space that celebrates and enhances the Northwest – a place to stop after fly-fishing or skiing and before heading on to a barbeque or out to a full supper on the town,” reads a release from the company.

The company has already been receiving names for the beers it will produce and it is looking for additional investors.

The option agreement is the first of what the city hopes will be many deals leading to development former Terrace Co-operative shopping centre location.

Once a thriving commercial centre with gasbar, grocery store, hardware store, clothing store and more, the shopping centre closed in the late 1990s because the economic decline caused by the collapse of the forest industry.

The building and property was first purchased by the Hull family and then re-sold to the city in late 2005. The structure was torn down last year.
