Prince George, B.C. The City of Prince George has a winery, a craft brewery and soon will have a distillery.
Council for the City of Prince George has approved a rezoning application to clear the way for the development of Trench Brewing and Distillery at 399 – 2nd Avenue.
The applicant plans to have a Manufacturer’s Lounge where patrons can sample the wares being produced on site. A license is needed to allow patrons to have more than a sample. That license would have a maximum occupancy load of 125.
Council has approved supporting the liquor license application.
The applicant says the distillery will provide 15-20 jobs by the time it reaches full production and can be a positive tourist attraction.
Along with the Northern Lights Estate Winery and CrossRoads Brewing, Trench sees itself as another positive stop for visitors to the City.
Council has also unanimously approved the reszoning for the facility.
