Is A Massive Beer Bar Enough To Bring Visiting Drinkers To Fair Park?

While Deep Ellum has enjoyed a resurgence in restaurants and bars over the years, Fair Park has remained pretty sleepy. Fallout Lounge failed and Pizza Lounge and Meridian Room cater to local residents but are not much of a draw for visitors. Craft and Growler (3601 Parry Ave.), however, looks like a space that could build some real momentum in the neighborhood.

A Facebook page set up on the Fourth of July has been chronicling the build-out of the restaurant. They've started the TABC permit process and hope to open in October. Craft and Growler will offer a full bar and restaurant for enjoying beer onsite, and growlers in two sizes for those who want to take their brew on the go. The place looks huge.

Here's the text from their most recent update:

Welcome to the Craft and Growler Facebook page, where we'll keep you updated on our progress toward opening around October 2012. Craft and Growler will have Dallas' largest selection of draft beers to go in growlers of all shapes and sizes. For those unfamiliar with the concept of beer growlers, check out the Photos section for beer growler photos.

You'll be able to choose from our wide selection of 32 and 64 ounce beer growlers, or bring your own growler, and fill it up with any of our tap beers to enjoy at home. Craft and Growler will also have a bar and great atmosphere so you can taste, sample, or enjoy our wide craft beer selection.

I really don't understand why people think Fair Park is so sketchy. I've never once had cause to be concerned about my safety, with the exception of stumbling away from Pizza Lounge with a tummy full of awful food.

The Amsterdam Bar has jumped the shark by losing beloved bartenders Dino, Ross, Chris, Matt and now Sheldon, now at least there will be a place to go and enjoy a beer.
