Wake to offer stadium-wide alcohol sales in 2016


Another day, another school getting set to cash in on Saturday adult beverages.

Wake Forest has officially become the next to join a burgeoning trend, with the school announcing that it will offer stadium-wide alcohol ales for the 2016 season at BB&T Field.  Previously, alcohol had only been available in select areas of the stadium.

Beer and wine will now be available to anyone of age and with a ticket to the game.

“Our fans have responded favorably to being able to purchase beer and wine outside of Deacon Tower,” said Wellman. “We received excellent reviews on opening Top Hat Tavern. As we examined ways to increase the fan experience at BB&T Field, making these beverages more widely available was met with a favorable response from various constituencies of our program.”

The last two months, Ohio State and Pittsburgh have announced stadium-wide alcohol sales.  Additionally, both Florida and Penn State have announced it will sell alcohol in premium seating areas this upcoming season.

Boise State, though, announced in June that it’s request to continue selling alcohol had been nixed by the Idaho State Board of Education.
