Sweet Denton is on a roll lately when it comes to getting cool new stuff, and it appears their momentum isn't slowing anytime soon. Today, Audacity Brew House (Denton's first brewery) and Travelstead (where Oaktopia Festival is held) announced they're partnering to open the Audacity Brew House at Travelstead in downtown Denton by the end of 2016. From the press release:
... the facility will focus on creating a complete craft beer concept, from the brews created onsite to the hops-inspired menu. This project is the culmination of shared passion by an active team of folks who love creating and lifting up the Denton community. With willing hearts, creative minds and strong work ethics, the combination of the team that has brought you LSA Burger Co. and Barley & Board combined with the highly skilled team of Audacity Brew House will bring to life an experience that not only honors the history of Travelstead but also provides an amazing view into the world of craft brewing.
The roughly 8,000-square-foot existing structures will be adapted to create the brewery, kitchen, a specialty market and an "outdoor entertainment environment" that will host live music, according to the release. The new brewery will produce 10,000 barrels a year (or 30,000 gallons a month, according to the press release) and you'll be able to consume beer on-site or take it home in growlers. The new venue and beer-porium will be located at 215 E. Hickory St.
