A&M TO OFFER BEER & WINE IN STANDS AT FOOTBALL GAMES

  

For the first time, Aggie Football fans will be able to enjoy a beer or a glass of wine in the stands at Kyle Field.

The Southeastern Conference earlier this year announced a decision to allow the sale of beer and wine in public areas during college athletic events.

Texas A&M University has announced a variety of domestic and imported beer as well as a selection of wine will be available for purchase to the general public until the end of the third quarter.

Interim Director of Athletics R.C. Slocum said Thursday, that A&M is extending the availability of alcohol beyond the premium areas.  Fans, 21 and older, will have the option to purchase alcohol, regardless of their seating area.

The University says alcohol sales at more athletic venues will be determined at a later date.

  1. The Houston Livestock Rodeo is a perfect example why this is a bad idea. Serve drunks – Yes, Put drunks on the road – Yes. As Rusty posted, “Just. A. Bad. Idea. We’ve sold out to the beer lobby.” Everything has become a drinking event. Look at the county fairs. Most had a beer stand for years but the main event was the fair, kids, families. No more. It is all about consumption of alcohol. What is wrong with having a beer/drink when you get back home?

  2. Bad idea! Alcohol served to rowdy and possibly underage irresponsible young people. What could possibly go wrong? Fights, Pi and DWIs after the game, thats what!

  3. I think this is a poor decision. I love a good beer (and a cocktail), but college sporting events are no place for this. Probably 50% of the crowd is underage, and will be having someone else buy beer for them.

    Just. A. Bad. Idea. We’ve sold out to the beer lobby.
