WATE 6 On Your Side obtained the city of Knoxville’s beer board agenda for next week, and both venues are on the list of beer permit requests. 

Those requests will be discussed June 18 at 5 p.m. in the city-county building. 

If the permits are granted – keep in mind, the University of Tennessee’s alcohol policy does not allow students, even those age 21 or older, to buy beer at games.
