Permit change would clear way for taproom

The Grapevine City Council is looking into changes to the city's brewery permitting to allow on-premise consumption of craft beers at breweries.

Changes would fall in line with alterations to state rules governing craft breweries. This comes as Grapevine Craft Brewery is eyeballing a new taproom facility as part of an upgraded development project for its planned Jean Street brewery.

Gary Humble, CEO of Grapevine Craft Brewery, said he was pleased with the city's backing Tuesday.

"It's exactly as [councilwoman] Darlene Freed said: 'We decided to promote the craft beer industry, we should do something here,'" Humble said.

The company now moves further into a plan to create a 10,000-square-foot facility on Jean Street. Humble said the development will include a tasting room on-site, and with the increase in its footprint comes additional parking that will help the company exceed its initially expected needs.

"We'll be able to have somewhere in the neighborhood of 45 parking spaces," Humble said. "That's great, because it's going to be more than we need from that space."

Grapevine Craft Brewery is preparing a set of plans to submit to the Grapevine Planning and Zoning board, and Humble hopes to see a July consideration and possible approval for the project.

"If that gets the thumbs-up, that should put us in construction and give us a January 2015 move-in date," Humble said.
