Kennewick, Wash. — Ice Harbor Brewing Co. owners Mike Hall and Bill Jaquish took a chance when they opened their second location on Clover Island.
Now, Port of Kennewick commissioners are recognizing Hall and Jaquishs contributions by naming them and their business the 2013 Friend of the Port.
The award was presented during the port commissions regular Tuesday meeting.
Port Commission President Skip Novakovich said, Theyve just bolstered the notion that the island can be something special for the whole entire region.
Hall and Jaquish were among the first tenants on Clover Island to come on board with the ports plans to revitalize Clover Island into a destination waterfront, Novakovich said.
Ice Harbor at the Marina brings people onto the island, said Port Executive Director Tim Arntzen. And theyve been good tenants.
