KNOXVILLE (WATE) РThe Downtown Knoxville Design Review Board approved plans for a new tavern/beer business Wednesday.

The owner of Merchants of Beer, Tim Hill, plans to open the new venture in the fall. The current building is located at 137 Central Street near Summit Hill. The building was formally the home of a Enterprise Car Rental location. The building will undergo a variety of renovations by architect firm Studio Four Design, including interior and exterior work, new furnishings and signage.

The business will have a similar look of a 50s diner and serve craft beer, according to Inside of Knoxville.¬†Aluminum panels will be added to metal siding on the building’s exterior. There will be a patio on the side of the property. Parking will be available behind the business.
