A Dallas Design District brewery is expanding to downtown Dallas: Pegasus City will open a second location with an additional brewing space and taproom, going into the Dallas Power and Light building located at 1508 Commerce St.

According to a release, the brewery will open in spring 2020.

Pegasus City was founded by three friends — brewmaster Will Cotten, marketing director Christopher Weiss, and creative director Adrian Cotten — who quit their day jobs to take their home brewing hobby to the next level. They opened their first location in the Design District in 2017.

They'll be going in the old Jos. A. Bank space and also incorporating some of the plaza space on the west side of the building to form their patio.

The space will be home to their new pilot brewery system, with an indoor taproom and an outdoor beer garden.

"Our goal is to highlight the history of the building, of the city, and create a taproom environment welcoming to all," the release says.

They've only just begun the paperwork and approval processes, which is why they won't open until the spring.

Their current brewery and taproom in the Design District will remain open and unchanged.

Pegasus City has always celebrated its Dallas roots, with its name honoring the city's iconic Pegasus red horse.

"Inside the iconic Dallas building, the Dallas Power and Light’s lobby sits under Pegasus Room, down the street from the Magnolia Hotel, a block away from Pegasus Plaza, with a beautiful view of the Mercantile building – and its clock," the release says. "Our connection to the city’s history and tradition has always led our brand. Our Nine Volt is named the 'D.P.&L. Tripel' after this same building, and we can't wait to be part of such a beautiful space."
