Several events will be taking place in the coming weeks in Chattanooga and they will be able to sell beer.

At the Thursday meeting of the Chattanooga Beer Board, several applied for and received a temporary beer permit.

An empty lot at 1511 Williams St., will be the location of Southside Food Truck Park during the month of June on Saturdays from10 in the morning to 10 at night. The organizer is planning to do this every month, said Paul Smith, owner of Nooga Taps, LLC. And a new license will be needed each month. He owns a couple of antique refrigerated trucks, from which he sells beer. He will be the only vendor selling beer at this event where food trucks will gather. He will have a server and another person checking IDs to verify age before serving them beer. The lot is surrounded by walls of other buildings which will contain the people drinking alcohol inside the boundary of the event space.

The Rabbit Valley Farmers Market, which has local farmers and artisans, is held in Ringgold Ga. from mid-May until mid-October. A special market, “Mother’s Day Gala” will be held on Saturday at Coolidge Park. Robert Davis, the organizer of the special event, said that Samantha Kern Leslie will be selling all the beer during the day from 10 in the morning until 7 in the evening. A police officer will be there throughout the day checking IDs and providing wristbands to those who are the legal age to drink beer.

On Memorial Day, May 27, from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. the Coolidge National Medal of Honor Heritage Center will hold its first MURPH challenge in Chattanooga. The foundation was named for Lt. Michael P. Murphy who was killed in 2005 in Afghanistan. The competition begins with a one-mile run, followed with 100 pullups, 200 pushups, 300 squats and another mile run, all while wearing a 20-pound vest. The competition will last five to six hours and the beer will be served during the last 45 minutes to celebrate finishing the course.
