New Northgate Businesses Opening Up Soon

More Video...

COLLEGE STATION, Texas You'll soon have more choices when it comes to eating out in the Northgate area of College Station.

The longtime establishment Fitzwilly's Bar and Grill closed earlier this year and the Eccell Group which owns Café Eccell is transforming the space into a new restaurant called "The Backyard."

That restaurant will open this fall.

Further down Boyett Street the first microbrewery is in the works called Blackwater Draw Brewing Company.

Owners there say they hope to make three to four varieties of beer in house.

"Planning on opening up a brew pub so we'll be brewing our own beer on site. We'll have food as well. Pretty laid back atmosphere. We'll carry all Texas beer along with the beer that we make, "said Christopher Steele, Co-owner of Blackwater Draw Brewing Company.

The microbrewery is expected to open in mid-September.
