Following a bankruptcy filing in February, the Arlington Voice is reporting that the remaining Arlington and Dallas (W. Northwest Highway) locations of Humperdinks Restaurant and Brewpub are set to close.

Humperdinks opened its first Dallas pub on Greenville Ave. in 1976. Locations were added in later years, with brewing operations going online at various sites beginning in 1995. For those projects, Humperdinks partnered with Ram International/Big Horn Brewing Co. of Washington to develop brewpubs in Arlington (1995), Dallas - at W. Northwest Highway (1997) and Greenville Ave. (remodeled, 1997), and Addison (1998).

In the time since, Humperdinks beers won numerous awards at the Great American Beer Festival. Eleven medals (four gold, five silver, two bronze) were bestowed on the company between 2001 and 2012, with the best performance coming in 2001. On that occasion, the combined entity Big Horn Brewing Co./Humperdinks of Dallas was named Large Brewpub of the Year.

As for the here and now, the Arlington Humperdinks had been the longest running brewing operation in North Texas. The Addison brewpub stopped making beer in 2005 (closing in 2017), while the Greenville Ave. locale shuttered just this past February. Other, non-brewing restaurants once existed in Irving and Richardson as well.

Operations will cease at close of business Sunday, July 14, at both the Arlington and W. Northwest Highway restaurants.
