A Beer Garden May Be Opening in LSU’s Tiger Stadium

Tiger Stadium is already on our watchlist during college football season for obvious reasons, but it looks like we’re going to have to bump them up to top priority if beer sales are approved for the upcoming season.

That’s right. LSU officials are reportedly working to get a beer garden operating by this fall — the details from Greater Baton Rouge Business Report:

Limited beer sales in Tiger Stadium could become a reality by the start of the fall football season. LSU officials confirm that plans for a beer garden in the stadium are firming up, though the deal hasn’t been finalized yet.

“We are aggressively working to have it in place in the fall,” says LSU Spokesman Ernie Ballard. “But we are still working through everything to make it happen.”

Obviously this is fantastic news for us as we live for trashy behavior at sporting events. However, LSU AD Jose Alleva seems to think this beer garden will lead to smarter alcohol consumption:

In the past, Alleva has said expanded beer sales in Tiger Stadium would enhance the fan experience, and boost revenues and attendance at games. He’s even suggested fans would be less likely to binge drink before entering the stadium if they knew they could buy beer inside.

Yeah… we’re not so sure about that.
