Beer To Flow At Fall-Themed Special Events In Chattanooga

Thursday, October 4, 2018 - by Gail Perry

Several fall-themed special events will be taking place during October in Chattanooga that will offer beer during the festivities. On Thursday morning, the Chattanooga Beer Board gave five special events permits for these events.

 

 Barktober Fest 2018 will take place at the McKamey Animal Center, 4500 N. Access Road, on Oct. 20. This is a Halloween-themed event where there will be the opportunity to adopt a pet. A donation of dog or cat food is requested at the entrance. Trick-or-Treating for children and their pets will be in the woods beside the building and there will be a dog and human costume contest.  A beer garden is available and dinner will be catered by Lee Towry Catering. There also will be a “Football Extravaganza” with a big screen TV to watch the Alabama-Tennessee game. The event is from 4 p.m. until 11 p.m.

 

The Creative Discovery Museum will also have a Halloween-themed fundraiser. On Oct. 25, Drink & Discover will be held at the museum at 321 Chestnut St. from 7-10 p.m. People 21 and up can come in costumes and play for three hours, said Denise Karnes, representing the museum. There are 450 people expected for this large event. Tickets are being sold online where people are informed that they must bring an ID as proof of age or they will be denied entry. A second Drink & Discover will be held on Dec. 20.

 

Village VW will host Octoberfest 2018 in their parking lot at 6001 International Dr. on Oct. 12 from 5-10 p.m. There will be a vintage car show featuring a number of Volkswagens. Food will be catered and The Pickle Barrel will be the beverage vendor serving Hutton & Smith beer.

 

Frightening Ass Film Festival/Chattanooga Film Festival will be held on two consecutive days and nights at an improv theater located at 1800 Rossville Ave. Suite #106. On Oct. 27-28 from 10 a.m.-2 a.m. and Oct. 28-29 from 10 a.m. until 2 a.m., all kinds of films will be shown in addition to the frightening ones. There also will be food, beer and music. Tickets can be bought online. Attendees will be ID’d at the door and again when a beer is ordered.

 

A consumer beer license was approved for The Mayor’s Mansion Inn, a bed-and-breakfast at 801 Vine St. This 1889 Victorian home was built by former Chattanooga Mayor Ed Watkins. It was turned into a B&B in 1995 and renovated again in 2002. Joy and Joe Reinert bought the house, that has 12 bedrooms, this summer. Beer will be restricted to the bar downstairs and there is no room service.

 

 On Sept. 20, The Southside Social was penalized for allowing an employee to drink at the place where she worked - the second time this had happened in a two-month period. A choice was given for this second offense to suspend the beer license for three days or to pay a fine of $1,000, which had to be paid before a seven-day deadline. Josh Lang, general manager of the bar,  notified the Beer Board that the monetary option was chosen. As of Oct. 4, the fine has not been received. Assistant City Attorney Keith Reisman told Chattanooga Police Officer John Collins to do a citation for Southside Social that will suspend the sale of beer for three days beginning today through Saturday.
