Possibly Good News for Future Dallas Breweries

If this can get approved it will be very beneficial to new breweries within the city limits of Dallas.

It’s Getting Close To Beer Thirty

Right now, there is no current zoning which specifically allows a brewery, not even in industrial zoning areas.  This means, to have a brewery operation approved, an applicant has to apply for a Specific Use Permit (SUP).  This is a case by case basis, for which specific approval must be given, whereas if an area is zoned specifically to include breweries, an applicant can be approved administratively as long as they meet any requirements set forth in city ordinance.  This is partly the reason why Lakewood Brewing Company is located in Garland I believe.

I will follow up on this with info of who can be contacted to express support for this and if/when any public comment/meetings will take place.

Change is a brewing folks!


About dfwbeerscene

I am a beer nut. I drink it all the time, I brew it as much as humanly possible, and if I'm not doing either of the first two, I'm probably thinking about it. So as a beer nut, I've always followed the limited beer scene in DFW, and up until recently, there wasn't a whole lot to discuss. Well now there sure is! As many of you already know, DFW and its surrounding areas is having a bit of a beer renaissance. Every month last year I'd hear about more and more breweries "in development" and I'd scurry the web to find out where I can monitor their progress. And that, is what I intend to do with this blog. So now a little bit about myself: I am an environmental scientist by trade, but as of January 2011 I have made the decision to become a professional brewer. Since then, I applied and was accepted to the American Brewers' Guild CraftBrewers Apprenticeship Program and am scheduled to begin in June 2013.
