More alcohol coming to Kyle Field this fall

By  | 

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (KBTX) - When you watch the Aggies play at Kyle Field this year, you can buy a beer or glass of wine and drink it in the stands.

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.

This comes after the Southeastern Conference's decision to allow the sale of beer and wine in public areas during college athletic events.

“This is another way we are enhancing the amenities at Kyle Field,” Interim Director of Athletics R.C. Slocum said. “We are extending the availability of alcohol beyond the premium areas which have had this option for many years. Fans, 21 and older, will have the option to purchase alcohol, regardless of seating area.”

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