LSU is ‘aggressively working’ to open a beer garden in Tiger Stadium for the upcoming football season, according to the Greater Baton Rouge Business Report.
quote:

“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.”

LSU Athletic Director Joe Alleva has said for years that he would like to bring beer sales to Tiger Stadium. In 2014, he told the Baton Rouge Press Club that “it’s going to happen at some point—I don’t know if it will be five years from now, 10 years from now.”

More recently, during an interview on LSU’s pregame radio show last September, he said a beer garden “was on the horizon,” though he didn’t specify when.

Could have used one at the PMAC the past couple of seasons. The Box might need one soon too.

I don't have a whole lot of faith in LSU pulling off a legit biergarten. This is going to be a place to serve coors lite, miller lite, bud lite, and hot dogs. Yeah, an outside bar. The novelty will wear off quick unless they bring it with actual good beer and good food. Not going to happen.

Relax gang, the beer garden is coming. Too much money to be made. Should serve food as well. Drink up, baby!

Well it can't hurt anything. It could reduce the need to get tee-totally blitzed beforehand at least SOME. And, when it's successful (as in not a failure By people committing drunken shenanigans in-game), we may can get a couple more at various points in the stadium, reducing wait times and increasing the likelihood of actually getting to use them. I mean, you don't HAVE to go to it, so quit whining.

Considering 90% of the attendees are swamp trash who could never have even gotten into BRCC, I just don't care anymore. How about we mandate attendance or a degree from LSU to enter?

Really sounds like a way for LSU to invest a lot of Money into a "beer garden" and totally screw the Core LSU fans with rules and regulations. I can only imagine the cost to enter the 'beer garden" for the Privilege to buy the beer they're selling. Just look at the way they over price concession at the game. I see a "no beer" purchased and brought back to the seat policy. As well as a half of quarter missed standing in line to get a 1 or 2 limit purchaces. Not trying to be critical , just know from other LSU ventures.

This has disaster written all over it! The majority of fans are drunk when they enter the stadium anyway. Selling beer in the stadium will only fuel their rowdy behavior and probably lead to more fights and fan ejections. Besides, most people just smuggle in a pint of whiskey and mix it with a cold drink and party on! 6 one way, half a dozen the other!

Sep. 11, 2016 1:05 PM EDT BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Louisiana State University is eyeing an outdoor beer garden for its football stadium, but the idea would have to pass muster with the Southeastern Conference. The Advocate reports (LINK ) that LSU athletic director Joe Alleva said during a pregame radio show Saturday that the university has "some concepts on the board" for adding food courts and possibly an outdoor drinking area at Tiger Stadium. He said those ideas are "are on the horizon." Under SEC rules, alcohol sales at the stadium are currently limited to suites and other premium seating areas. Alleva says expanded beer sales would boost revenue and attendance and could make it less likely that fans binge drink before they enter the stadium.

We'll have that retractable roof in no time if they start selling beer in the stadium.

Even if they had it, they would prob have to stop serving in the 3rd quarter. Would not solve the leaving early issue. I would prefer them not to. Being around drunk LSU fans the last couple of games in Houston was unbearable.

They should build a sloped double decker patio in the north end zone to close it in and have beer sales. Would be pretty cool. Kind of like Dallas's stadium in the end zone that has the deck but more like the bar that's by the locker rooms.

1/2 price in the second half. I just solved the leaving early issues. Consider this my resume.

Here's a quote out the manual... "No alcoholic beverages shall be sold or dispensed for public consumption anywhere in the facility and the possession and/or consumption of alcoholic beverages in the public areas of the facility shall be prohibited. These prohibitions shall not apply to private, leased areas in the facility or other areas designated by the SEC. There shall be no advertising displays mentioning or promoting alcoholic beverages in the facility." Probably gonna work that line with the private entities and leases. Won't able to take it back to your seat, but they could possibly set up a nice patio in a gated area with security. Only way it would work is if they had a view of the field from wherever they put it.

It better be a big arse fricking garden. Unless they put about 10 of them, supply and demand is going to eat this concept alive. People are going to spend a whole quarter waiting in line for the only place they can grab a $10 miller lite.

Isn't it an SEC rule, not a LSU rule? I see it eventually happen. Money trumps anything else these days.
