TERRACE IS that much closer to having its own brewing company and lounge together in the downtown area.

Skeena Brewing Company (SBC) today purchased a home in the heart of the City of Terrace at 4629 Greig Avenue.

The purchase allows SBC to proceed with licence applications for a 2,000 litre $1.8 million state-of-the-art brewing/lounge facility that will showcase the pure and the wild of Northwest fare.

“SBC investors, encouraged by a generous provincial community diversification tax break, continue to make a tasteful difference in their community.  And we have just started to tap the keg!” enthused Dr Greg Linton, SBC’s president.

“The City of Terrace is very pleased to finalize the land purchase on the corner section of the old Co-op property with the owners of the Skeena Brewing Company. This is one more important step toward revitalizing a prime downtown property with a new and unique investment in our community,” said Terrace mayor David Pernarowski upon signing the sale agreement.

The proposed facility will produce high-quality fresh beer for site sales and regional distribution in kegs, bottles, and growlers.

Patrons will be able to enjoy local craft beer and other refreshments together with regional produce in a setting that complements Terrace’s natural beauty, culture, and economic activity.

SBC’s service and space will celebrate and enhance the Northwest – a place to stop after fishing or skiing and before heading on to a barbeque or out to a full supper on the town.

Lands covered by the SBC purchase agreement were never involved in industrial use, and were cleared in phase 2 environmental studies by Golder Associates Ltd.

Calgary-based Superior Lodging Corp., a privately held hotel development and investment company, has signed an option with the City of Terrace to buy 2.79 acres of the old co-op property adjoining the SBC site.

Prototype SBC brews, including a session IPA, a Pilsner, and a Lager were recently received with considerable enthusiasm at the Rotary Club of Terrace Oktoberfest.
