The City Beer Board is supportive of a new idea to allow beer sales at Food Truck Alley, located at 503 Market St.
The owner of the business, Karol Brigham, came to the beer board meeting for help in getting a beer permit. There are typically four to six trucks parked there on the weekends. The idea is to have a central location for beer sales. No trucks would be involved.
Suggestions for the new concept include building a small structure from which to sell beer, however that would have to conform to requirements for city building permits.
A caterer’s permit could be obtained, but that would require that the business also get a TABC license, which is costly.
Officer John Collins suggested getting a 30-day special events permit with specified dates, which might be the easiest, he said. Another idea would be to hire a caterer who could sell beer under their own license. Ms. Brigham was urged to do research before deciding which way to go.
