According to a report from USA Today, the city of Knoxville is not happy with how beer sales have gone at Neyland Stadium. The report suggests the city wants to suspend beer sales for at least three home games next season after having three instances of underage alcohol sales and the behavior of fans...
quote:

The stakes in the dispute are high. The city is seeking at minimum to suspend beer sales for three home games in the 2023 season, with the possibility of revoking Aramark's license entirely.

Hearing officer and attorney Loretta Cravens will decide Dec. 19 whether Aramark has a case to strike portions of the city's original complaint, filed in response to three underage alcohol sales at the stadium this season. She will decide then to either set a final hearing to decide whether Aramark's permits should be suspended or revoked - or if no action is necessary.

I agree. Raping the hosts by 4 TDs isn't very cordial.

100K people for each home game this year and they had THREE people get beer underage. That is remarkable it was that low. Sounds like someone just doesn't like the university. The people in that stadium sloshed on beer would have just been sloshed on something else. Suspending beer sales does nothing.

I have been to more games than I can count at Neyland and Even before beer sales people would smuggle hard liquor into the games. They will never stop people from getting drunk or drinking at games. I have gone to the bathroom and found empty 5ths of liquor bottles in the bathroom stalls where people have filled their cups with it. Eliminating beer sales will not prevent people from people getting hammered before the games and smuggling in liquor.

This is the case everywhere, and an obvious take. And beer sales haven't stopped the sneaking in tradition. Now stadiums are held accountable like bars/restaurants. Different times and scenarios.

The Knoxville Beer Board, yes, there is such a thing, is infamous. They use 'cadets' to go in and make buys so that fines can be assessed.
In restaurants, one cadet goes to the john, the five at a table are all legal aged and they order five beers, the cadet comes back, takes one beer and takes a drink. Arrested !!!! and the manager gets fined, the bar gets fined and the city makes money. The three citations above were all to 'cadets'. ONLY THREE. those dudes you can be sure were working every home game continually.

And the Beer Board is separate from the hard liquor board.

I'm surprised a manager hasn't gone postal on the Beer Board.

Truth. I owned several restaurants. The ABC board that gives you your license for alcohol will send in an underage kid that looks 45 years old and have them order a drink during your busiest rush hour then fine you and threaten your license. It's really entrapment but you can't beat the government at any level 3 violations among 100,000 fans is a joke.

I feel like a little self awareness would have told them how this would go.
