City Council also acts as Knoxville's Beer Board which regulates beer permits in the City of Knoxville. 

The Beer Board establishes policy and procedure for the issuance of permits to sell beer, and to compel enforcement of the City Code by means of inspectors. Beer permit applicants must appear before the Beer Board for consideration of their request for a beer permit.

The Finance Department is responsible for the beer permit application process for the City Beer Board and liquor-by-the ounce licensing.

Starting July 19, 2016, each board meeting meets at 5:00 p.m. in the Main Assembly Room of the City County Building, prior to the second City Council Meeting of each month. View the Beer Board Monthly Meetings Schedule below.
