The 807 Fire and Ice can no longer sell beer.

The Chattanooga Beer and Wrecker Board voted today to revoke the beer permit for Fire and Ice, located at 807 Market St., starting immediately. The revocation applies only to beer, and not to wine and liquor.

Fire and Ice faced the Beer Board today because of a reported disorderly crowd incident from Sept. 10. When the lights came on at about 2:30 a.m., police saw beer bottles flying through the air inside the bar, and fights and other disorder subsequently broke out, according to the incident report.

On Sept. 15, the Beer Board suspended the club’s license for 30 days because of a disorderly crowd incident from August 14.

How does revoking their beer license so that they can ONLY serve LIQUOR make this a better situation??? If anything, they should NOT be allowed to serve liquor since it usually leads to more amped up drunk violence than just beer does.

Maybe they should revoke all clubs downtown from serving alcohol. Seems there's been trouble at most all of them. From a hit and run death, to drunken broads passed out on benches.

ChattaVol06... Regulation of liquor and wine is not under the purview of the local Beer Board. The state ABC board regulates licenses for establishments serving liquor and wine. The argument of whether they should be allowed to continue serving liquor and wine is a valid one. However, the Chattanooga Beer and Wrecker Board has no authority at all in that area. It would be wise for the ABC board to take a look and make their own decision quickly on whether to revoke the serving license from Fire & Ice. Problems will continue to occur at this and other establishments that continue to have the ability to serve liquor and wine after having their beer serving licenses revoked. The safety of a business and its' patrons should be top priority. A business such as this should also take into account the responsibility they have to its' community as well. The staff of Fire & Ice and Midtown have proven their inability to control volatile situations in and outside of their businesses. That is the reason action should be being taken.

amnestiUSAF84... Adults should behave like adults. That's what it boils down to. Pulling alcohol sales from all venues of entertainment would solve absolutely nothing.

This seems like a great environment to allow guns.
