Pelican Brewing Invests $1.4 Million To Locate Brewery In Tillamook, Oregon
The company, which currently employs 130, plans to continue to operate its restaurant and pub, as well as a small brewing operation, at its beachside location in Cape Kiwanda, Oregon.
As an incentive the state of Oregon contributed a $150,000 forgivable loan from the Governor's Strategic Reserve fund to help finance the $1.4 million expansion project. "The work of state and local officials has yielded a real win for the Oregon Coast and Tillamook County," said Gov. John Kitzhaber. "More fine tasting beer and twenty new jobs—now that is an Oregon solution."
The Governor's Regional Solutions Team and Business Oregon officials helped Pelican remain in Tillamook County and the city of Tillamook find a vital use of an underutilized industrial land and vacant warehouse as part of its urban redevelopment efforts. Financing partners for the project include the brewery owners, the Bank of Astoria, the Tillamook Urban Renewal Agency and the state of Oregon.
"This is the 18th Oregon brewery we've worked with to expand production," said Business Oregon Director Tim McCabe. "Together these small businesses are creating a big impact."
