Grapevine Craft Brewery promises to quench the thirst of area beer enthusiasts by opening a taproom, beer garden and brewery in downtown Grapevine.

After securing unanimous approval at the Aug. 19 Grapevine City Council meeting, the company is moving forward with a project expected to encompass more than 10,200 square feet between Nash Street and Dallas Road at 924 Jean St.

All production now conducted in Farmers Branch will stop, with the company consolidating all operations in Grapevine.

Construction is expected to begin in September 2014 and end before the brewery opens in February 2015.

“There are no more barriers for this project, and we are now full steam ahead after almost two years of planning,” said company founder and owner Gary Humble in a news release.

Property to the north, adjacent to the land that the company already owned, became available for sale with an existing 6,000-square-foot building and Dallas Road frontage.

“We were able to acquire that property and expand our project from under 7,000 [square feet] to over 10,000 [square feet],” said Humble, adding that the company was able to more than double its available parking. He described expanded parking as “critical” to accessing its taproom and beer garden.

Meanwhile, the company’s Farmers Branch location is under contract for sale to 3 Nations Brewing, headed up by brewmaster Gavin Secchi, formerly of Karbach and Goose Island, Humble said.
