Tanasi Brewing And Supplies, The Woodshop, El Rey Taqueria Get Beer Permits

Thursday, June 18, 2020 - by Gail Perry

Tanasi Brewing and Supplies, 1510 Riverside Dr., was approved by the City Beer Board for a consumer and carry-out beer permit. It is in the old location of The Beer Market and Beer Garden, with a new owner, Clinton Sallee.

 

The business is a small craft beer brewery and tap tasting room that also sells supplies for making beer and wine. There is a fenced dog park on site.

 

In order to sell alcohol, The Woodshop, 5500 St. Elmo Ave., requested a zoning change to Urban General Commercial from Single Family Residential which was approved by the Chattanooga City Council. This will allow the business to sell beer in a residential neighborhood without the 500-foot buffer from a church or day care center that was required by the previous zoning.

 

The Woodshop’s owner, Daniel Russell, has operated it as a hobby for the past four years. It is described as a listening room for live music and venue for private events. Because there will be live music and residential property is nearby, Mr. Russell was warned to be aware of the impact of noise on his neighbors.

 

A small restaurant serving authentic Mexican food, El Rey Taqueria, 6219 Lee Highway at the intersection with Highway 153, has been open for a couple of weeks. The restaurant can only serve 65 customers. After receiving a beer license Thursday morning, the business will also be allowed to sell beer.

 

A Chattanooga city code regarding beer sales has been changed to add the requirement that anyone serving beer must be professionally trained. The new law is now in effect but because of difficulties caused by the coronavirus pandemic, applicants are now being given three months to comply.

For any energetic child, Little League Day is everything, because all the boys are assigned ... (click for more)
