Pabst Brewing to move HQ to Chicago area

By Lorene Yue
June 07, 2006

(Crain’s) — Pabst Brewing Co. is moving its headquarters to Woodridge, marking its return to the Midwest after a decade-long absence.
Lured by the labor pool, transportation access and a nearly $1 million state incentives, the beer manufacturer is moving 31 jobs to the suburb about 30 miles west of Chicago.

The company’s executives, sales and marketing staff will relocate from San Antonio, Texas, in early July, said Kevin Kotecki, CEO of Pabst Brewing. The beer maker, which will spend nearly $2.5 million to lease an office building, already has four workers stationed in the area.

“It feels like home to us,” Mr. Kotecki said. “We are the third-largest brewery in Chicago, 10% of our business is done there and it continues to get larger every year.”

Next, Pabst needs to put a brewery and pub outside Bridgeview Stadium.

Some things just need to stay the same. It's bullshit that it's taking tax breaks to make things right again though.

Pabst is just an office building anyway. They don't own any manufacturing facilities at all. All their beer, and they have like 21 different labels, is contracted.
