Senate Allows Beer Sales at TCF Stadium

| No Comments

The Minnesota Senate passed a bill Wednesday that allows the University of Minnesota to sell beer at the TCF Bank Stadium.

Passing with a 58-4 vote, selling alcohol at the stadium would generate about $1.5 million more revenue for the stadium, reported the Pioneer Press. A public beer garden would be erected on the stadium's west side, and beer would also be sold in luxury seating.

According to the Minnesota Daily, the University initially wanted beer sold only to those in luxury seats, but the Legislature requires it to be sold to the general public as well.

The Crookston Times reported that the TCF Bank Stadium loses up to $2 million per year because alcohol is not sold.
