The City of Carrollton is excited to announce that 3 Nations Brewing Co. has executed a lease for the property located at 1010 5th Avenue and is planning to open in late spring 2019.

3 Nations has been brewing out of the Farmers Branch location since 2015, but the owners have been searching for a larger space where the company can be involved in the community through tours, activities, and family-friendly entertainment. Mayor Kevin Falconer said Downtown Carrollton is the perfect location. 

“3 Nations’ new location will allow the company to keep and grow their current client base due to the available property space, DART connectivity, visibility to the DART Green Line, and proximity of multi-family housing,” Falconer said. “This concept will be a great addition to our thriving Downtown area.”

The City sought to use this unique, historical building for an exciting destination. Other breweries and distilleries, such as Revolver Brewing in Granbury and Texas Ale Project in Dallas, have successfully converted sheds into beautiful facilities that attract visitors from near and far, which sparked the vision that 1010 5th Avenue could be home to a brewery. 

“I get more inquiries about this building than any other address in Carrollton,” Development Program Manager Krystle Nelinson said. “Over the years, people have pitched a wide range of businesses for this space, from furniture stores to antique malls and boxing gyms to a trapeze studio, but the City and the property owners’ vision has always been a brewery.” 

Built in 1950 as a grain storage shed, the brewery’s new home will play a unique role in both honoring Carrollton’s history and looking into its future. 3 Nations’ new facility will be a multi-faceted community center for friends, families, and their dogs to gather; an event center for weddings, parties, and corporate functions; and a destination for weekend travelers. The project will include a playground and other amenities to keep the facility in line with Downtown Carrollton’s family-friendly atmosphere. 

“In today’s world, breweries are really event centers that draw people from all around,” Falconer said. “This project is really going to change the dynamics of our Downtown.” 

In the past, the City has worked with a number of Downtown Carrollton property owners to retrofit existing buildings for new businesses. Examples include the building Cane Rosso Neapolitan Pizza now occupies, formerly an aging retail storefront from the 1950s transformed into a popular pizzeria, as well as the historic grain silos built in 1950 that now serve as the tallest indoor rock climbing gym in the world. 

“The City takes pride in the fact that Downtown Carrollton wasn’t built by developers, but by local merchants in the early 1900s and always seeks to honor that history and authenticity while simultaneously finding ways to make the area even more of a destination for visitors,” Marketing Director Kelli Lewis said.    

With beers like Mango Smash IPA, Texas Gold Kream Ale, Royal Blood, and Cozy Bavarian, 3 Nations Brewing Co. takes influence from German, English, and Belgian brewing methods and mixes them with American innovation. 

The brewery will join other DFW favorites in Downtown such as 55 Degrees Wine Bar and Bistro, Amici’s Signature Italian, Babe’s Chicken Dinner House, Beth Marie’s Old Fashioned Ice Cream, C2 Café, Cane Rosso, Cow Tipping Creamery, El Rincon, Sid’s Rainbow Grill, and Twisted Root.
