Sure fire favorite opened up in downtown

Kask Taproom on 4th ave in downtown Prince George opened its doors on November 18th, 2016. This new test kitchen and craft beer tasting  business is going to be a sure fire hit in our downtown and is just another example of all the great things happening in the area. 


The following is an excerpt from news report on the opening and captures what is happening beautifully:


More and more businesses are making the decision to  open  in  downtown Prince George,  an area of  the City  which has seen more than its share of  challenges.

Investment in the downtown  has been  growing,  with  façade  improvements ( the old Photo Fax building  on George Street a prime example),  the resumption of  construction of the Courtyard Marriott Hotel,  the addition of  a pizza outlet to Nancy O’s on Third Avenue,  façade improvements underway at the corner of  Third and Quebec,   the  decision by HomeWork to  return to  downtown,  the opening of  Jim’s  Clothes Closet  on 4th , the  development of  Crossroads Brewery on George Street and now Kask.

The  opening of Kask on 4th means  4th avenue   has no retail vacancy  space available.  That’s the  first time that has happened in  several years.  “This  innovative business will play a pivotal role in redevelopment of  downtown” says Mayor Lyn Hall.

Kask’s owner, Ross Birchall  says  his outlet  won’t be in competition with Crossroads Brewery, in fact,  CrossRoads product will be one of  the craft beers featured.

Over the past year,  several developers have remarked that  it is clear Prince George is open for business and Birchall  echoes those comments “The time  is right  for doing business in this  city.  A cooperative Mayor and Council, incentives such as the Façade Improvement Program,  several young entrepreneurs that I’m pleased to call my friends and an appetite for change  makes all the difference.”

There are other  plans in the works  to help  further the revitalization  of Downtown  Prince George,  including developing student housing,  and a park  next to  the  Wood Innovation and Design Building .
