Noble Rey brewery gains zoning approval near school

559757_276443669153762_1822416252_nNoble Rey Brewing Co., the start-up beer maker that leased a building at 1400 E. Jefferson in July, received zoning approval Wednesday from City Council to manufacture and sell beer.

The building, which can be seen from Interstate 35 and used to be called The Ad Place, is just a few block from a school, Trinity Basin Preparatory.

Councilmember Vonciel Jones Hill tried to delay a vote on the zoning, which Councilmember Scott Griggs had been working on for weeks. So Griggs, who was home with his wife and their new baby, got in the truck and drove to City Hall to push for the vote, which was successful.

Noble Rey owner Chris Rigoulot says now he can “get to work on getting licenses and construction efforts.”

  • Why did Vonciel Hill try to interfere? This project is miles from her district, and Dwaine Caraway, the member representing the district to the immediate east, was in full support of this, along with Griggs.

  • Downtownworker, I don’t think that’s the way the story reads, and it wasn’t our intent to imply that the school wasn’t consulted, either. I don’t think that would even be possible in a zoning case like this, where all neighboring property owners are notified.

  • The Dallas Morning News reported that “the brewery had received permission from the neighboring school to proceed and that the variance would allow for such proximity.”
    Your story as written implies that the brewery just went in there without consulting the school.
