Another day, another new beer-centric project on the horizon for Deep Ellum: Armoury D.E. is going into the old Kettle Art Gallery space on Elm Street. Co-owner Peter Novotny tells Teresa Gubbins at CultureMap the concept will be "more of a bar with really interesting food"; expect plenty of beer, including craft local selections, imports and maybe some canned throwbacks like Schlitz. The food hits on the all-important buzz words seasonal and "snout-to-tail" and might even include some Hungarian fare like goulash. Per CultureMap, they anticipate a late November or early December opening; in the meantime, there's about $32,000 worth of remodeling to be done to the space.
Other beer-related happenings in Deep Ellum include Cold Beer Company, which opened Friday in the standalone building that used to be Vern's Place; the debut of Anvil Pub's long-awaited expansion, which added an additional 1,500 square feet to the bar; the beginning of construction on BrainDead Brewing; and the opening of Off the Record, a bar-slash-record store from the owners of Club Dada.
