Elizabethton city leaders tweak new pub bar rules
ELIZABETHTON, Tenn. —
Elizabethton City Council has tweaked the city codes for pub bars.
The pub bars were approved in fall 2018.
According to Mayor Curt Alexander, the changes are to serving times and the amount of beer these breweries could make each year.
Alexander said the new rules will allow beer served until 11 p.m.
Also, the council voted to increase the allowed amount brewed from 7,500 gallons to 15,000 gallons per year.
Alexander said the council looked at other breweries, like Yee Haw Brewery in Johnson City, when making a decision.
According to Alexander, only one reading and vote was needed to make the changes.
City leaders previously told News 5 they hope these new pub bars will attract new businesses and help revitalize downtown.
