Craft brewery startup Noble Rey Brewing Company was previously slated for Oak Cliff's Jefferson Boulevard, but those plans fell through. Instead, as the Dallas Morning News's Craft Beer and Cocktails blog reported recently, the brewery has landed in the Design District — where it's setting up shop just a stone's throw from award-winning brewery Peticolas.
Per the DMN:
The 8,400-square-foot brewery will house a 15-barrel brewing system. Once open, brewers will offer tours and tastings Thursday through Saturday evenings. And, operating on a brewpub license, Noble Rey will host a taproom for the public to visit, serving as a beer filling station for those who want to pick up and take home.
Noble Rey hopes to open its doors by the end of the year. Expect its lineup to include brews like B.A. Baracus (an American brown ale), an amber ale called Steam Punk, and a 7.5 percent ABV German IPA dubbed Lorelei Rock, as well as a seasonal Day of the Dead-inspired brown ale brewed with piloncillo (Mexican brown sugar), cinnamon, and ancho and guajillo chiles.
And while Noble Rey may have abandoned its Oak Cliff plans, the neighborhood does have another brewery in the works: The mostly-under-the-radar-thus-far Small Brewpub is slated to open seemingly anytime now and will serve house-brewed beers on tap as well as other bottled beers, wines, and cocktails, plus food — including housemade charcuterie — by former FT33 sous chef Misti Norris.
