Special to the Opelika Observer
The Alabama Municipal Electric Authority, along with the City of Opelika, presented Resting Pulse Brewing Company with a $5,000 AMEA Special Projects Grant.
Resting Pulse received the grant based on the company’s investment in a new facility and the jobs they created in Opelika. Owners Dave and Terri Plundo have leased a historic building located at 1st Avenue in downtown Opelika, completing a full renovation and creating an outdoor entertainment patio.
The AMEA Economic Development Grant Program is a program designed to assist its Member communities with community and economic development projects. Resting Pulse is served by Opelika Power Services, which is an AMEA Member utility.
“The money allowed us the ability to maintain and restore the historic
features within the taproom and production areas as we completed the
renovations to the building. It was important to us that the brewery
reflected the historic nature of the original building and area,” David said.
AMEA is the wholesale provider for 11 public power utilities in Alabama, which serve approximately 350,000 customers in the cities of Alexander City, Dothan, Fairhope, Foley, LaFayette, Lanett, Luverne, Opelika, Piedmont, Sylacauga and Tuskegee.
