The Craft Beer Authority Brings Its World Class Craft Beer and Delicious Flavor– Along With a Good Cause– to Ft. Worth Residents For The First Time This February
Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom, a traditional casual dining restaurant known for its delicious, handmade pizza and world class craft beers, will open its first Ft. Worth location in Presidio Junction at 8933 North Freeway Ft. Worth, TX 76177 on Tuesday Feb. 16. To celebrate the upcoming opening, Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom partnered with Camp Fire First Texas and will donate proceeds from its pre-opening dinners on Feb. 11-13 to the local youth and family-focused nonprofit.
The traditional casual dining spot will offer guests both classic and signature recipes on either of its handmade Chicago Thick, Ale Crust or Gluten Sensitive mouth-watering crusts including its Meat Me Pizza loaded with Italian Sausage, Canadian bacon, andouille sausage, pepperoni, green olive garnish and fresh basil or its red sauce Italian Grinder.
Famous taproom starters such as the Sicilian Pepperoni Rolls, signature dough with pepperoni, green onions and cheese baked and served with pizza sauce, and the one-of-a-kind Italian Nachos, house-made pasta chips baked with mozzarella, provolone, pepper jack, pepperoni, pepperoncini and Italian sausage will also be sure to delight Ft. Worth visitors.
With over 36 draft beers available, more than 100 beers available on the menu and a beer expert always on staff, The Craft Beer Authority has something for everyone. All menu items will be available Sunday-Monday until 1:00a.m. and the restaurant will be open until 2:00a.m.
“Since 1976 we’ve been serving handcrafted pizzas, made from scratch, every day. That is expertise you can taste, and we can’t wait to finally get to show it off to Ft. Worth residents this February,” states General Manager Dan Childers of the restaurant opening.
More importantly, one restaurant staple that will not be on the menu is the restaurant’s strong commitment to giving back to its community. Not only will Old Chicago be joining the restaurant scene in Ft. Worth, but it will also be joining the city’s commitment to offer its residents a better and brighter future.
Camp Fire Texas First is one of the largest youth councils in the United States whose promise is to provide young people with the opportunities and tools to shape the world by helping them lift their voice and discover who they are.

“Camp Fire First Texas is excited for this opportunity to partner with a new neighbor like Old Chicago Pizza and Taproom. The funds raised during this time will help support the important work we do in our communities while friends and families enjoy a meal and fellowship,” states Camp Fire First Texas’ President Ann Sheets about the partnership.
