Oak Cliff could be getting its first craft brewery soon. Noble Rey Brewing Co. announced on Facebook that they have agreed to lease a space in our neighborhood.

Here’s the announcement:

Ok, can’t keep it in any longer….WE ARE SIGNING OUR LEASE FOR OUR SITE IN OAK CLIFF!!! We know that some of you will be disappointed that we couldn’t make it work where we had originally thought…but this is AMAZING news for everyone! It means, barring any setbacks in the zoning process, we could “soon” be hard at work brewing beer you can actually get at your favorite local watering hole!

The building is at 1400 E. Jefferson, which used to house The Ad Place (a creative firm that has moved to Addison), and can be seen from Interstate 35, near the Colorado exit.

Owner/brewer Chris Rigoulot says there are still hurdles, such as a zoning change, before the deal is official.

According to the Noble Rey website, Rigoulot is the son of a longtime home brewer, and he has been perfecting his craft beer for the past five years. He is a certified brewer, who graduated from the American Brewers Guild last year. Rigoulot and his fiancee live in Grapevine, but they plan to move to Oak Cliff, according to the website.
